You can review the preliminary 2015 prerequisites by clicking here. The final 2015 prerequisites will be available by the time of registration or shortly afterward.
Additionally, Appointments are available throughout the day. Appointment are ONLY for when you believe you have fully completed ALL the requirements for a merit badge and just need to meet with a counselor to review them, talk about them, or be tested on them before getting the blue merit badge card signed off as a fully completed merit badge.
Please share this email with the scouts in your troop. The registration information will appear in the upcoming PacSky newsletter.
A few reminders:
1) There are no wait lists for the classes. Scouts typically don’t drop classes until 2 weeks before the midway. Wait-listed scouts don’t have enough time to complete the prerequisites.
2) If you have any difficulties with the registration site please call the BSA Foster City office at (650) 341-5633. Contacting me will only delay your success as the registration site is run by the professional staff in Foster City.
3) The midway is volunteer-driven. We’ll need volunteers for check-in and in-classroom to assist the counselors. Please help to make the midway successful by volunteering in some capacity.
