Merit Badge News



Good news continues!  As you know, the Welding Merit Badge was released on 2/24/2012 and Mr Grayson has been busy.  Along with that we have covered two of the merit badges that were lacking District Counselors, Plant Science and Small Boat Sailing.  We are still looking for a counselor for Fingerprinting and Sculpture Merit Badges.  Look for Kayaking Merit Badge at the end of May and for Search and Rescue Merit Badge in June or July.

Time for re-certification!
I will be sending out the re-certification emails with attachments the first week in April.  It is imperative that all current counselors review this information and respond back to me by May 4, 2012.  A new YPT certificate will be required for all those whose YPT expires this year.

Don’t forget!
The current version of the MBC Listing, dated 1/4/12, is posted at crosstimbersdistrict.org/documents/badge.pdf.                                           The username is tiger and the password is Eagle29.  Both words are case sensitive.

Boa in need of a good home

I have found a BOA that needs a good home.. (for Free) you will need a rather large enclosure for him and need to have experience with large snakes..

He is in great health and living at River Legacy Nature school for many years..  he is almost 7 feet long. 


Call me if you have any questions or interest.
