District Merit Badge College March 14th & April 11th

Posted by rbruns on Feb 26 2015 - 11:39am

It's Merit Badge Pow-wow time in the Pioneer Trails District. On Saturday, March 14, 2015 from 7:30 am - 1:00 pm, and again on Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Highlands Ranch Stake, 9800B Foothills Canyon Blvd., Highland Ranch, CO.

This is a two-day Merit Badge Pow-wow. Scouts are expected to attend both days and complete projects in between. The first class day is mandatory. If you can't attend the first day, you may not come the second day. Please check your calendar ahead of time as we will not refund those who cannot make it on the second day.Those who attend and complete the pre-requisities and any assignments between sessions will be signed-off on April 11.

Scouts must bring a signed card for each merit badge they are taking. All personal information and the merit badge name should be filled in and both unit leader signature spaces must be signed.  Please remind your Scouts that these are the equivalent of cash. The office cannot replace them if they are lost. Lost Blue Cards become the responsibility of the Scout to prove that they know the material and they will need to contact a Merit Badge Counselor to have another Blue Card signed.

Lunch will not be served; however, the Order of the Arrow will operate a snack table throughout Merit Badge Pow-wow.

Field uniform should be worn.

Receipt for the Pow-wow must be brought with you. If you do not receive an email receipt, you are not registered.

Cost is $10.  If you register from March 6th-8th your cost will be $12.00; no walk-in registration.  

Class list and availability

Do not sign up for a merit badge more than once. Doing so prevents you from signing up for an additional badge and reduces the remaining space for other Scouts. Search and Rescue is the only merit badge which requires two periods. If you need assistance with registration, please contact Cindy in the Scout office at 720.266.2148  You only need to sign-up once. Do not put your credit card in more than once or click pay more than once. We are no longer refunding those that register a Scout several times.

Scout should plan to be picked up as soon as their final merit badge class is over.

Adult leaders may sign up for class to provide two-deep leadership and to receive a patch.

A Scout should expect to complete a merit badge only if he 1) attends both Saturdays of the Pow-wow, 2) pays attention and participates in each class, 3) completes all assignments between Pow-wows days, 4) completes all pre-requisites listed, and 5) presents a Blue Card signed by his unit leader (in both places) and completely filled out to the counselor by beginning of April 11th session (note:the card which can be printed from online sites need not be blue).

Scout Accounts Updated

Posted by lconey on Jan 17 2015 - 9:00pm

Scout accounts have been updated and are posted on the website.  The balances reflect the most recent King Sooper's earnings, Fair popcorn earnings, and Okpik registration.  The balances do NOT reflect any fall popcorn sales or 2015 registration dues.  Keep in mind if your son's account is more than $200 in the negative, he will be unable to participate in any overnight or off site activities, including Okpik and Tahosa Cabin.  Please make every effort to bring your son's account current.
