Belt Loop and Pin Update

There are no limitations on the number of times a Scout can earn an Academic or Sports belt loop and pin. However due to budget limitations, the Pack Committee has decided that the Pack will only award a Scout a belt loop and pin the first time he earns it. Subsequent awards will be in the form of a certificate.

For example, if your Scout goes to day camp four years in a row, he will earn the Archery and BB belt loop and pin every year. The Pack will award him the actual belt loop and pin for these activities the first time he earns them. In subsequent years, the Pack will award him a certificate for these activities.

This is strictly a cost issue as belt loops and pins cost $1.89 each, while a certificate costs $0.12. For the September Pack Meeting, we spent nearly $200 on belt loops and pins alone!
