We have 2 Eagle scouts that both earned 2 Bronze palms. In the PO, the QTY shows 2, even though it should be 4. This is also the case for Gold, which should have 3, but shows 2.
The Advancement Report is correct and lists the scouts multiple times for the palms they’ve earned.
What do you mean earned 2 bronze? You earn 1 bronze, one silver, then one gold - the POs are correct
See the “The right way to wear a combination of palms” section in “The way Scouts earn Eagle Palms is about to change”, article, (
scoutingmagazine.org), https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2017/07/10/changes-to-eagle-palms/, By Bryan Wendell, July 10, 2017, for a more complete table. Per that article:
Eagle Palms may be reported by the unit leader submitting an Advancement Report No. 34403, making the appropriate entry via Internet Advancement, or via Scoutbook once the option is available.
What palms needs to be purchased may be less than what is in the table because the Scout may already have some palms.
Here is my interpretation.
No. = Number, MBs = merit badges
No. of MBs beyond minimum
2nd silver palm
3rd silver palm
4th silver palm
5th silver palm
6th silver palm
7th silver palm
The IT programmer analysts may want to use to use a formula for the calculation of silver palms instead of a table to allow for future expansion in the number of merit badges.
Not sure if I am doing something wrong. I have a scout who earned 100 merit badges. For his eagle palms on the last one on q4 he earned the 5 additional merit badges but it wont populate that its done. How can I correct this?
