  2. All Scouts are required to bring with them the following items:
    1. Blue cards for each merit badge, signed by your Scoutmaster or designee. Counselors will not have blue cards.
    2. Completed pre-requisites for your merit badge, as listed in this packet.  Certain requirements may need verification from Scoutmaster or another adult. Bring a signed letter describing your completion of a requirement to get credit.
    3. Worksheets for merit badges are available at http://www.usscouts.org/meritbadges.asp or http://www.meritbadge.org.  
    4. Paper or notebook.
    5. Writing instruments – pens and pencils (bring extra).
  3. Completion of a merit badge is not guaranteed by your attendance.  All required work must be done and approved.  (Nothing more, nothing less!)  Scouts will earn credit for those items completed. The completed items will be indicated and signed off on the back of the blue card. 
  4. Scouts will not be permitted to drop off a merit badge worksheet to a counselor for their review, unless they attend the merit badge session for credit.  No exceptions.
  5. If you have started working on the merit badge with another counselor, and wish to complete the badge at this event, you will need to demonstrate to the MBF counselor, to their satisfaction, that you have fulfilled all the requirements, as indicated in this packet.  The merit badge counselors at this event are under no obligation to accept portions of the badge done with another counselor.
