Almost every rank has additional requirements for rank advancement compared to the previous requirements. (Note: IF you crossed over to T840 in 2016, you were already using the new requirements; nothing has changed.)

Do NOT STOP, please ... !!

We have had several near-collisions in front of VRBC because parents dropping off Scouts do not pull all-the-way into a parking space. PLEASE help keep our Scouts SAFE by pullling into a parking space before you let them out. This will avoid DANGEROUS congestion in front of VRBC. Better yet, come on in and GET INVOLVED!! Also, please do NOT use the handicapped space UNLESS someone you are driving REQUIRES use of that space. That way it will be available to those for whom it is not only needed, but also NECESSARY. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our Scouts/Scouters SAFE!!

NEW Index to Advancement for BSA Handbook

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. 
Another Scouter has created such a reference and you may find it here on the T840 web site. Apparently some future edition will add this information back ....
