To register your troop you must identify one person (your registrar) to register your entire group. All fees will be combined and billed under this registration. Only the adult designated by your troop as registrar should register scouts for MBS. Parents should not register their scouts independently.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BEGIN:
1) Your Troop advancement contact name and email
2) Attending Scout names. Scouts must be registered with their actual names, NO NICKNAMES.
3) Attending Scout age, rank, and if they’ve earned the First Aid merit badge.
4) Attending Scout classes
5) Attending adult names, cell phone number, email
6) Attending adult classes
7) Attending adult volunteers
8) On Site adults who are not registering for classes or volunteering
STARTING YOUR REGISTRATION: With your first registration provide your name and email as the registrar. Online registration will open at 6:00 AM Monday January 15, 2018. Please DO NOT register before 6AM. All registrations before 6AM are automatically deleted by the program when the event goes live. We have no control over this.
ADULT ATTENDANCE: Each Troop MUST HAVE AT LEAST TWO ADULTS registered and in attendance. Scouts attending individually must have an adult registered and in attendance.
ADULT REGISTRATION: Any adult taking a class MUST BE REGISTERED with the troop. This includes any adult taking the Adult CPR class. Class fee includes lunch.
ADULT VOLUNTEERS: In order to follow BSA two-deep leadership guidelines in classes, we ask each Troop coming to the Merit Badge Seminar to REGISTER AT LEAST ONE ADULT LEADER to sit in on at least one class. They will not be expected to assist in teaching the class, but will be there to provide an adult presence in addition to the instructor. The registrar may designate themselves or register another adult as the volunteer. Lunch will be provided. Registering volunteers in advance helps us coordinate & communicate with them more effectively. If a Troop has additional volunteers, please register them as well. We thank you for your help in making the Merit Badge Seminar a success for the Scouts.
ADULT ON SITE: All adults must register. Additional adults that will be on site but NOT take classes and NOT volunteer should register as an adult on site. Lunch will be provided.
