Posted on Sep 2 2016 - 12:04pm

When BSA created the new BSA Handbook (13th edition), they decided to leave out the page reference index for each requirement from Scout through First Class.

IF you have received either of these cards BUT you do NOT take them to Advancement,

Also ... you MUST carry these cards with you AT ALL TIMES you are at a Scouting event!!
