Blue Cards - Comprehensive Merit Badge Application (Blue Card) Instruction Guide

 

Nothing creates more questions here at Scoutmaster Bucky than Blue Cards.  I searched and searched and while the Internet holds a lot of useful information, there is not a whole lot of detailed information available for Blue Cards

Scoutmaster Bucky is proud to offer the first comprehensive Merit Badge Application (Blue Card) Instruction Guide - aka How to Fill Out a Blue Card.. This document is a guide for both Youth Scouts and Adult Scouters and Merit Badge Counselors alike. The guide was put together to help all parties involved in the handling of Blue Cards to understand each others responsibilities and roles in the process.

        (Click here to download Scoutmaster Bucky's - How to Fill Out a Blue Card Document).

Let Scoutmaster Bucky know what you think.  Was this guide helpful? Any questions, clarifications, or corrections? Send me your questions and watch this section for updates.  (Click here to send Scoutmaster Bucky a Blue Card Instruction Guide Inquiry email).


 

Scoutmaster Bucky's Eagles Nest

   

New Eagle Nest Eagle Scouts will be posted soon. 
The Eagle's Nest will also be updated soon with all past and present Eagle's Nest recipients.

 


To be honored as a Scoutmaster Bucky Eagle, a Scout must partake in 11 or more Scoutmaster Bucky merit badge opportunities AND attain the rank of Eagle as well as invite Scoutmaster Bucky to the Eagle Court of Honor.  Scouts whom have already attained the rank of Eagle may be welcomed to the Eagles Nest after completing 11 or more Scoutmaster Bucky merit badge opportunities and attaining their 1st Silver Palm.

Excerpt from 1918 Electricity Merit Badge Examination

"There is only one rule in the world, and it applies to all professions, and that is that you are expected to 'make good'.  No excuses are allowed in this school of life, and the only way to make good is to keep faith.  This the reason I like the idea of the Boy Scouts - because of their secure notion of being responsible to society.  They are responsible to the people who live around them - to help maintain the standards of order and fidelity upon which the community depends."


(signed)     Woodrow Wilson

President of the United States of America
