TROOP ADVANCEMENT & PARTIAL NIGHT

Posted on Jan 13 2015 - 2:51pm

With our next Court of Honor coming up at the end of February, Troop Scouts need to focus on wrapping up any partial Merit Badges and their last details for completing rank advancement requirements.  Now is the time to pull out your partial Blue Cards and check your BSA Handbook!

Tuesday, January 27th  will be a Troop Advancement Night.  We will have MB Counselors and Adult Leaders to give direction on who to contact, and how to complete any partial MBs, as well as Boy Leadership ready to work with their members in completing rank advancement requirements.  

Your Scout needs to come prepared!  Each Scout should look in their BSA Handbook (and their Individual History Report) prior to this meeting, and know what they are ready to have signed off or would like to complete during the Troop Meeting. They might have completed a rank advancement requirement at a BSA summer camp, on a Troop outing or at a Troop meeting, but didn't get it signed off in their BSA Handbook.
