Pay for entire troop with one check – made out to BSA-MSC for registration.  We will be using to manage merit badge registration this year. This requires that one adult in your unit register on the site as a Unit Leader. There are tutorials under the event planning “Do It Yourself Guide” tab that will show you how to do this. This system will allow you to print rosters for your unit. This system also requires that email addresses for the scouts or parent be included so that MB counselors can contact scouts prior to class with notes about class. We recommend that you have the Master Merit Badge Schedule in front of you to assist you in sign up. Use the Individual Scout forms as your guide to input for unit online registration.After you sign up & sign in,  go to the event tab, find the 2019 Tanana Valley Merit Badge Day on the list and then click the sign-up button on the right.

Troop Leaders: Please turn in all items together  Checks (one check/includes lunch) Troop needs to collect additional fees, to be paid in cash for merit badges requiring a special fee( Welding). Each troop should provide SIGNED Merit Badge cards for each Scout in your troop. PLEASE NOTE: One of the biggest comments from MB instructors is the lack of maturity for young scouts taking Eagle-Required Merit Badges. A unit leader should consider talking to scouts about the concept of “challenge by choice” prior to signing a MB card for young scouts. Unit leaders/Parents need to be present for the entire day with Scouts to move them to off site locations, communications and safety
