I am advancement chair for our troop (fairly new to the position). A Scout forwarded an email to me & the SM from his MBC. The MBC states that the Scout had completed the requirements for a MB. No blue card included. I emailed the Scout back and asked for a scanned copy of the completed blue card (since we’re not able to get together to exchange them in person these days). His dad (who is our former SM) stated that in the past the troop and district have allowed such email confirmations without exchanging a blue card.
My question—is this OK, or typical of troops/districts to allow? The MBC in question is our district’s advancement chair, so I should assume she knows what she’s doing, but somehow this doesn’t feel right.
