Howdy, I see the new award tracker, as of sep’18, lists lion den leaders as eligible for the den leader training award. I also see the clause that you need to be in the position for a year, unless you are a tiger leader (for program year, 8months).
Now, I assume the tiger clause is there because those dens traditonally form in aug/sep and would advance in may. I would think the same clause should exist for Lion den leaders.
Basically, I’m not sure how a Lion leader can ever meet the requirements (even though the form says they are eligible), since the dens wouldn’t form until aug/sep and then rank advancement in May.
Am I reading into this wrong? If our Lion Den Leaders meet all the other training / activity requirements, should they submit for turn award?
