Can someone explain this one to me so I can better explain it to the Scout ,Scout's parents, and Troop Leaders. The Scout turned in his completed Eagle application in December. It does not make it to the Council Office until January. The Eagle Application is processed by a group of volunteers "The Eagle Desk." The Scout had his SM conference in the Troop, completed his paperwork in the Troop, and would like to earn his Eagle in the Troop. He is dual registered in the Troop and Crew. He turned 18 after completing all the work for the Eagle Award, and as 18 he is now not registered in the Troop only in the Crew. The Eagle Desk will not approve the Eagle Application to have an Eagle BOR as the Scout is now (2012), only registered in the Crew. They want the young man to take his Eagle Application to the Crew Advisor, have him sign it. Return the application to the Eagle Desk, and then they will approve the Application and allow a Board to occur with the Scout earning his Eagle as a member of the Crew not the Troop. The Scout wants to earn the Eagle with the Troop and the Crew Advisor is hesisitant to sign the application as the Scout did not earn the Eagle in the Crew, he earned it in the Troop.
I am confused. Please help me.
I was reminded that there are 4 things you can not recover:
"The stone after the throw, the word after is's said, the occasion after the loss, the time after it's gone."
