As we're trying to get the PEP aspects and badges all defined, we are receiving lots of suggestions for adding this or tweaking that.  Many of the suggestions have merit, several might not be in alignment with what we're trying to do here.  Discussing them and sorting them out takes time away from getting the remaining badges finished.  Our priority has to be on getting the badges done.

So if something comes up with wording for a BB that is causing serious problems, we'll probably address it quickly.  Those should still be made in the BB or badge threads.  If it's a suggestion, recommendation, improvement, added item or other change, we'll start directing people to put them in this thread.

I imagine this will become a long laundry list of bits and bobs that we'll be able to work through next year.

Would Red Haw berries count, I believe the Red Haw (aka Downy Hawthorn, aka Fireberry) be okay for fresh or dry?  They are also in Montana.
How about Avena sativa (common oat)?  

Thank you!
Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

This is in reference to the foraging badge

One I thought of was changing the "weld hitch ball to tractor bucket" to also include welding a receiver hitch instead, that way a hitch with any size ball or a hook can be inserted when needed. It's much more versatile.

Dimensional Woodworking:  Maybe consider allowing some natural finishes (https://www.triedandtruewoodfinish.com, homemade wax and oil blends, milk paint, etc) and hide glue for the projects.

Hey, I noticed that Shear a Rabbit is not a BB.  I propose that Shearing A Rabbit be added to the Animal Care BB list as 1 point.
