3 A. Map B. Example of Scout Registration Confirmation C. How to Fill Out Blue Card for MBF I. Blue Cards No Changes from Last Year IMPORTANT: Blue Cards will not be issued electronically!!! A Scout must bring a signed Blue Card with them for each class they have enrolled in. Without a signed Blue Card, a scout will NOT be given credit for the class. II. General Description A. What is the Merit Badge Fair? Merit Badge Fair is a Boy Scout advancement opportunity open to any registered Boy Scout. A Scout has, under most cases, the opportunity to earn up to TWO merit badges at MBF. These are not "give-away" merit badges; and MBF is not a "merit badge factory." Each Scout is expected to fulfill ALL the requirements by attending classes and doing prerequisites. Scouts are expected to participate fully in order to receive full credit for their Merit Badges. B. Merit Badge Fair (MBF) The Texas Skies District Merit Badge Fair (MBF) is an educational and advancement opportunity open to any active registered Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, or Venturer under the age of 18. The event is hosted by the Texas Skies District of the Sam Houston Area Council (SHAC), Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Questions by parents should first go to Scoutmasters. Scoutmasters having questions should contact or the event organizers below: MBF Chairman Philip Cox For additional information, visit the Texas Skies District website or log into the MBF registration website: 3 P age

4 C. Adult Volunteers (Required) for all Troops sending scouts to MBF Event Staff Successful Scouts have the support and guidance of parents. The parents are a treasure trove of information that can benefit every young man in our leadership program. Your encouragement and occasional refocusing of purpose that boys your son s age require will be invaluable. The successful leader in Scouts learns quickly to be successful in everything they attempt. Adults are needed to set up the facilities before the fair starts, handle registration, act as "roamers" to look out for issues that need to be resolved, assist the merit badge counselors, and to help clean-up after the event is over. Volunteers who work directly with the boys must have current Youth Protection Training. YPT can be taken at All adult volunteers are contact: Philip Cox D. Location The location for MBF will be at Holy Covenant United Methodist Church, Morton Road, Katy, TX (See map at end of this document) Please do not call the church about MBF questions. 4 P age
