Next Merit Badge Monday 9/30 - Please sign up now!

Posted on Sep 18 2019 - 12:22pm

The next Merit Badge Mondays sessions for September will be Monday 9/30 and 10/14 from 7pm to 8:30pm.

Our first Merit Badge Monday was a great sucess.  Many scouts got a great start on new merit badges and others completed partials they had been working on.  Sign-up now to continue your progress or let us know what you would like to start.  If you need ideas please talk to one of the Scoutmasters.

For these sessions to work we need scouts to sign-up before the event so we ensure we have enough scouts and the right counselors available.

Signing up a few hours or minutes before the session begins does not allow us enough time to make sure we have merit badge counselors lined up.  Sign-up early!

Have a merit badge you want to work on?  If so please let Mr or Mrs McKeen know so we can be prepared.

Merit Badge Mondays are an opportunity for scouts to connect with merit badge counselors to start new merit badges or to complete those pervasively pesky partials that seem to proliferate profusely. 

So sign-up now and sign-up early! ...

Remember to bring your Scout Handbook!

Posted on Sep 11 2019 - 7:41pm

Scouts are responsible for their own advancement.  The Troop makes opportunities available to work on advancement but if scouts do not bring their handbook there is no way of knowing what they need to work on.  A scout should always bring their handbook to Troop meetings and also have looked at the book to know what they need to work on - the requirements are listed in the back of the handbook.

Also, be kind to your book - put it in a large zip-lock bag so it is protected from the weather and other hazards when you are not using it!
