Just thought I’d post this helpful document on how to start a merit badge with our troop. How to start a Merit Badge
We will be sending our troop’s signups for MTSU’s merit badge university on November 30 after the regular Scout meeting. Anyone who wants to go must sign up with Laura Vaughn (email@example.com) ASAP. The MBU will be held from approximately 8-4 on February 27, and the cost is $15 and includes lunch. Scouts must be age 13 or First Class rank. A list of open classes is available below on a PDF, or visit this link. http://mtweb.mtsu.edu/mtsumbu/2016/2016%20Class%20Codes/2016_Class_Codes.htm for the most up to date list. Please send Laura your first, second, and third class choices.
Troop 422 will be rechartering on December 1. If you do not wish to do so, please send Kevin King firstname.lastname@example.org an email asking not to register for 2016. The fees are listed below and we expect your scout account to have funds to cover this cost. We will make an attempt to contact you if your account balance is insufficient for registration before making the decision not to register you for 2016.
Recharter fee for Boy Scouts:
Troop dues $36
Boys Life $12
Recharter fee for Leaders:
Also, no adult may charter or re-charter without a current youth protection. To aid in this, we will conduct a youth protection class in the sanctuary next meeting on Nov. 30th. The class will be the online class ran by Mr. Fisher, all who sign up and attend will be credited with the training. I strongly encourage all to participate. Knowing the guidelines of youth protection is valuable in situations other than scouting as well. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
January 4th is the final signup day for Winter Camporee which is being held on January 22-24. Location and details will be discussed in the coming weeks.
