Important Merit Badge University Information

This year’s Merit Badge University will be held on Saturday, 3/2/19, and on Saturday, 3/9/19.  In case of snow, the makeup day will be 3/23/19. Although we have not been given firm start and end times, expect each day to start around 8:00am and end by 4:00pm.

The Troop’s registration will be handled by Anna DosSantos and is currently scheduled to start on Monday, 1/14/19.  That means we need to gather information this week to be ready.

What you to do BEFORE our Troop meeting on 1/9/19:

1.  Please email Anna (anna.dossantos@comcast.net) & let her know whether or not your scout(s) will be attending MBU this year.  Also, be sure they know whether or not they will be going.  Note: If your scout has a schedule conflict with the 3/2 date, I would not sign up for MBU this year.  If they can attend on 3/2 but not 3/9, attending will still be worthwhile.   

2. If they are attending, look at the list of last years merit badge offeringsand have your scout(s) pick out at least 6 badges that interest him & list them in priority order.  Please keep in mind that this year’s offerings may be different and changes may need to be made at the troop meeting.  We will work with each scout to do the actual selection of badges.  If we receive this year’s official list of merit badges before the troop meeting, it will be sent it out.

Please feel free to email Anna if you have any questions.  The council website has more general information about MBU at:  www.mayflowerbsa.org/mbu.
