9:00-3:30 11/15 Notes from the Counselor:

Scouts should have completed Requirements 2, 3C 6a, and 8 prior to the class and should bring proper documentation for review and discussion with the merit badge counselor.

Scouts must be prepared to participate in group discussions for requirements 1,3,4,5 and 9.

Scouts will also complete requirements 6b and 6d in class. I have the material to complete 6b including:  Clay, popsicle sticks, glue and index cards.  If scouts wish to incorporate other materials in their models they will need to bring them.

At the end of the day, scouts will still need to complete requirement 7 and arrange a final meeting with the counselor.

Golf
2:05-3:30 This Clinic is Full
Requirements to be covered:  1-6
Please note: This Merit Badge requires Scouts to play golf.  We have arranged a special deal with Thorn Apple Country Club for the Scouts in this clinic for discounted rounds of 9 holes.  Opportunities to play the required rounds will be made available starting the week after the Super Saturday

Dates available for Scouts to play are as follows:5/21, 5/23, 5/29, 6/4, 6/6, 6/12, 6/18, 6/20.

Those planning to play their rounds at Thorn Apple should come with tentative dates in mind from the list above.  Each date will normally be limited to 3 Scouts, so come with alternative dates in mind.  Each date will be for one round of 9 holes; Scouts need to play two rounds of 9 for the Merit Badge.  Scouts should plan to pay the green's fees (<$10/round) when they go to play.  Clubs will be made available for use if a Scout is unable to bring his own.

Scouts can also play the required rounds on their own (counselor preapproval is required)
