Finally, one boy wasn't properly uniformed (blue jeans and his Star rank still on uniform) and his paperwork was a mess. He came back in 3 weeks and did great. That was the Troop's fault for not making sure he was ready.
You can't fail someone for appearance only....that's extending the reqs.
You are right in that failing for uniform only would be wrong, but if the kid was sloppy in appearance and presentation and the paperwork was a mess, there are preparation issues that did need to be addressed. And it sounds like the boy learned from it and corrected things.
Granted a candidate for Eagle should be neat in appearance but would someone please let me know where being neat in appearance can be found in the requirements?
