Ethan Rice's eagle scout project will take place on the 9th of February at Briarwood Retreat Center from 8:00 am to 10:00 am and from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The project will involve painting, as it is a worship site renovation, so scouts are advised to wear something they don't mind getting dirty. Scouts are also advised to bring sunscreen and bug spray.

Personal Fitness Merit Badge Beginning in March

Posted on Feb 14 2019 - 10:10pm

Hello Scout families.
There are a number of you that need to complete the Personal Fitness Merit Badge. READ ALL if interested before responding: times, requirements, expectations included.

This is a merit badge that requires check-ins every 2 weeks and work outside of our times together. Anticipate an hour or more for each check-in. The first one will probably be 1 1/2 hours to get all the basics recorded. We will also cover one topic from the worksheet each check-in.
We will measure BMI, Aerobic fitness (running a mile), muscular strength (sit ups, push ups, pull ups), and flexibility (stretching distance)

Here are the dates: All are Sunday at 2 pm at the Briarhill Middle School Track.
3/3/19 1st meeting, very important: setting the measurement goals for the rest of the check-ins.
5/26/19 Final meeting

*There will be makeup dates as necessary, to be determined each check-in date.
*Once we know who all will be participating, I will give you more info about what we will cover each time.
*In the interim, if your scout has not had a physical in the last year or you question their physical ability to handle this Merit Badge, please do so.
Requirement 1 covers this as well as a dental appointment.
*Last but certainly not least, this process is involved. I will need parental help at the check-ins.

You can sign up for the merit badge here.

Yours in Scouting,
Tammy Kidwell
