NOTICE

Meritbadge.Info is aging out!

Rodrigo and Mike started the site after a Wood Badge course in 2005. We used to be a bear and a good ole bear too.  Our goal was to make it easier for event managers to setup, manage, and track merit badge classes without getting mired in reams of paper from the postal service.   

We are proud to say, after nearly 15 years, we offered over 2,800 events, 46,000 classes with over 245,000 participants taking nearly 410,000 seats via 1.4 million visitors. All of this in an hour per week. We realize this will disappoint quite a few loyal scouters who have used and promoted our project for many years.  We cannot tell you how much we have appreciated your feedback, gratitude, and patience when we needed to fix something.  We could not do it without you.

Unfortunately, the site needs a major overhaul. Neither of us has the time to redesign the registration system to meet these emerging requirements.  For this reason, it is time to shut it down. Here is the approach:

If you know someone at BSA national who can provide an API where 1) we send an adult registration number and 2) BSA returns the adult's Council, District, and Unit information, we will keep the website going. 

First, we have disabled the ability to create new events.  The events that are using the registration system up through May 2020 will be honored, but all others events will be blocked.

Second, if you have managed events in the past, we suggest you sign on and create a backup excel file for your records.  We still have adults looking for "blue cards" sometimes over a year after an event. 

Sometime in Q2 2020, we will take the site offline.

Sponsor Information

FLAG Ceremony at 8:15


This event sponsored by Tonkawa District Advancement Committee

Description

FLAG Ceremony @ 8:15 both Saturdays


The objective of the Tonkawa District Merit Badge College is to provide Merit Badges that a Scout may not have an opportunity to take otherwise.  Scouts may sign up for four Merit Badges that will be offered during four sessions between:  8:30 – 9:50; 10:00 – 11:20 (includes a 40 minute lunch break) and 12:00 – 1:20; 1:30 - 2:50.  Your Scout must be engaged to gain a Merit Badge if he is at the College, there will be no “open slots” without a parent picking up the scout and bringing him back if needed.


Class sessions are for both Saturdays and most will require off site work (homework) and/or field trips in order to complete all requirements. Scouts may not sign up for more than two Eagle required merit badges. Scoutmasters must approve all merit badges that their Scouts sign up for.  Remember that attendance alone may not result in all requirements being completed. Scouts must participate and demonstrate they have met each requirement with the Counselor. A Scoutmaster, Committee member or YPT adult must be in attendance from every unit with a Scout in attendance for anytime a Scout is at the College.


Lunch will be served both Saturdays and is included in the price, if your Scout has specific dietary needs plan to bring a sack lunch. Lunch will consist of hot dogs or pizza, chips, water and more during lunch time.
