I sent this email in response to an email I received. At the bottom it said, “if you have any further questions then email this address…” I sent it almost a month ago with no response so I’m hoping someone here has the answer.
In the Guide to Advancement it says that a Scout’s rank can’t be held up due to unavailability of a Scoutmaster or Board of Review. How does this work if the Scout is ready but can’t get a conference or BoR right away? Do you pre date the BoR to when it should have taken place?
It also mentions that if you’re conducting Boards of Review for one Scout who is obtaining two ranks simultaneously try to get a different set of committee members for each rank. There is no explanation on how this actually works, however. If a boy completed everything for Tenderfoot, for example, and cannot get a BoR but then also completes the requirements for Second Class, with the 30 days in between completion of both, the GTA leads me to believe he can have a BoR for both ranks at the same time. Would the BoR for Tenderfoot be documented for one month earlier when it “should” never been done? Do you still date the BoR with the actual date, and then what happens if the Council checks later at the Eagle submission and thinks that the 30 days wasn’t adhered to?
