Why volunteer?.... not just for service time rank advancement

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

Fire building competition

Last meeting, shadow patrol held a fire building competition, in which we had to collect all of our materials, and burn a string about a foot off the ground. Speedwagon finished first but came in last place. Bandit got disqualified, Kraken was in second place, and shadow and nighthawk tied for first. Thanks for coming out! Make sure to go to the church with your bikes next meeting.

Merit Badge Competition

Posted by mtrexler on Feb 16 2022 - 1:52pm

Merit Badge Competition

We take the 137 current MB’s and invert them so that the least earned has the highest point value.  For example, the listing for 2019 has “First Aid” as the most earned, so that would be worth 1 point, but  “Bugling” was the least earned and is worth 137 points

So what do I need to do?

You need to start and finish your MB’s in the calendar year of 2022.  Previously started MB’s will not be counted even if completed in 2022.  Must start and complete in 2022.

How do I start a MB?

Starting a merit badge is easy! Just follow these steps; Pick a Subject. Talk to your unit leader about your interests. Read the requirements of the merit badges you think might interest you and pick one to earn. Your leader will give you the name of a person from a list of counselors.Talk to that counselor and make sure they are available to work on this with you.  Then go to Mr. Polen and ask for a Blue Card  Troop 367 has a huge leader contingent that should cover quite a lot of MB’s.

An option is to complete MB online. The Edmond History merit badge programs have proven to be extremely beneficial to a few of our scouts. Visit the website and follow the steps outlined there:
