Wynken has just passed his first Boy Scout Board of Review for his Tenderfoot rank.
The Scoutmaster called an official review board to quiz the scouts on the requirements, what they had learned, and what they had retained. The Board was gentle but firm - no rubber stamping allowed.
Wynken had a little trouble getting himself collected enough for the review board, so he was allowed to let another scout go ahead of him and return a few minutes later to answer the questions. He eventually did pass and so everybody is breathing a collective sigh of relief. It's a good learning experience.
Both patrols in our Troop have been very busy in their first year - our first awards ceremony will feature 97 badges!
