They seem to get lost at the district office waiting for the Training committee to sign or on the way to the Council office for processing.

They can't blame you for wearing a knot that you have earned. You know you've earned it, and nobody else will question that.
I'll agree that while an individual may complete all the requirements, the award may only be approved by the person or entity authorized to approve it. While the national council approves the Silver Antelope and such, they don't approve den leader awards. They authorize the local council to handle approval, which should be done via the district training chairman.mhjacobson wrote:YEP - while you may think that you have eanred it, you have not earned it until it is certified by council and approved by national.

Every one that was taking a water front MB had to retake the test. Plus anyone that wanted to go swimming also had to retest. The water front was close for the day for retesting the scouts. The water front staff were not happy campers. They never found out who took the buddy tags.
