  1. Shawn, congratulations! take the responsibility and the relationship with your Scouts seriously. Do NOT buy a rubber stamp. take the time (even if it is seconds) to look each Scout in the eye and talk with them about what the commitment and responsibility, and the potential fun to earn a merit badge means before you sign the front of section #1. And then take the time to get excited and shake their hand and look them in the eye when you congratulate them as you sign the front of panel #2 when they complete the badge. My point is that a boy will only take blue cards and earning MB’s as seriously and exciting as we lead them too by example. ;-)
    Truly yours in Scouting, Ray

  2. Nice….I signed my first blue cards as SM this summer as well, 18 of ’em. Good stuff!
