I saw you mentioned the Woven theme patch. That is no longer the annual theme at the end of the month. AHG makes an annual theme patch. To make it easier, I would simply create a patch that says, “AHG Annual Theme Patch”, make it repeatable, and move on. Of course, I’m not a typical user in that way. The new one for next year will be released June 1.

Did you get updates for Tenderhearts for an outdoor cooking badge and canoeing badge? Otherwise, no major changes that we know of with badges.

Thank you @GermaineBurgwald! Is there any chance there is a downloadable PDF version of this you could provide us?

Does this work for you? I tried attaching the .pdf to the online thread, but it asked for .jpeg/.jpg instead and wouldn’t let me upload the pdf.

(Attachment Stars and Stripes Transition Plan 2023.pdf is missing)

This is the message I’m getting when I try to upload a .pdf:

Sorry, the file you are trying to upload is not authorized (authorized extensions: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, heic, heif, webp, avif).

I can also email it to a specific address if you’d like…

Is there a way to get the BSA Entrepreneurship Merit Badge requirements updated?

I see updated cub requirements now, but only under Cub Scout Ranks (2024+), not under Cub Scout Awards and adventures broken out by ranks. Is this still a work in progress or the final intended state?

@BradKelly,
This is still being cleaned up. All of the items have been added they are working to get it looking better and being less cluttered.

Is there a reason I can see the new cub scout adventures under an individual but not in the bulk recording for progress? Or is the thought that we will go through the rank and go through the entire list from now on? And is there anyway the summertime adventures can be changed from 1 requirement to 3, so they can be tracked as they do the events?
Thanks!

They are still working on cleaning up the adventures.

Here are some additional badge requirement changes
