OPPORTUNITIES

 
LEGACY MERIT BADGES
Scoutmaster Bucky - Legacy Merit Badge Opportnuities
 

Scoutmaster Bucky Legacy Merit Badges are opportunities for current day Scouts to work on past merit badges that no longer exist. THESE MERIT BADGE OPPORTNUITIES DO NOT COUNT TOWARDS ADVANCEMENT AND WILL NOT SHOW ON A SCOUTS OFFICIAL RECORD.

Scouts however, will go thru the process as if they were taking the merit badge in the era it was available. The same expectations of preparation are expected and information and reference materials will be made available to those who sign up. A special Merit Badge Requirements / Preparation Page will be provided and reference materials will be made available to those signed up for the class separately.

The opportnities come at a slightly higher price and vary based on availability  and resource requirements. Classes will be strictly limited to 10 Scouts; first come first served.   Scouts will be provided with an electronic copy of the merit badge pamphlet from that era and Scouts successfully completing all requirements will be presented with an official merit badge from that time era (hence the additional cost especially for some of the older and rarer ones offered).

Again, it must be noted that these Legacy Merit Badge opportunities are just for fun and do not count towards advancement in the current Scouting program.

Watch for our monthly Legacy Merit Badge offering


Please contact Scoutmaster Bucky via email if you have any further questions or concerns.

PERSONAL FITNESS WILL BE OFFERED AGAIN FOR INTERESTED SCOUTS IN THE COMING MONTHS

Scouts need to bring any unfinished work along with their 12 weeks of Physical Training Charts and Tracking.  The majority of class will be sent completing the Analysis and Review of the Scouts 12 week Physical Fitness program.  This SHOULD be all that most Scouts have left in order to complete this merit badge.

Some Scouts left the first session with other requirements unsigned and this follow up session will allow Scouts to review with the Counselors these remaining requirements.  Most common was the need to show the Physical Check Up as well as the Dental Check up.  Just saying you did it is not enough for the counselor to sign you off on these.  Please bring some sort of proof like your signed Medical Form, Dental Bill, etc

How to fill out a blue Card

Nothing creates more questions here at Scoutmaster Bucky than Blue Cards.  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).
 
 

Excerpt from 1918 electricity merit badge pamphlet

 

"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
