  • Sadly this has not been a good year for my backyard skating rink and it has been hard to find a time to schedule a skating merit badge session.   I will continue to try to get the rink in skating condition.   I may have to announce the session on short notice, so please watch for an announcement.
  • In the meantime if you are interested in the skating merit badge I would be happy to join you at public skating at the town rink.
  • If you are a hockey player, you can qualify for all of the skating activities as you skate during a game. I’ll be happy to come watch one of your games.

We desire to have all scouts and many adults (especially merit badge councilors) to attend focusing on badges and rank advancement.

  • Scouts, please communicate the following to your patrol leader:
    • Work you need for your upcoming advancement
    • Merit badges you need or desire to work on
  • Calling all merit badge councilors!!
    • Aim to work up to this date as a date to conclude merit badges
    • Identify one day type merit badges to offer as classes.  We will have a cabin which will enable us to proceed regardless of weather.
    • Come to this camp out – this is the lowest impact of all our trips this year!
