Break Time! What’s a Scout to do over winter break? There’s always merit badge work! Remember – SM Fedina needs to sign a blue card (either a physical blue card or in ScoutBook) to start a merit badge. But if you have lingering ones this is a great time to work on them. For our Life Scouts, completing your Eagle-required merit badges is great activity for this break. For Scouts looking to start a merit badge – check out these Bryan on Scouting articles on merit badges you can complete in a weekend or that can help you prepare for a winter storm. And don’t forget knots! Knots are essential to rank advancement and doing well in the Klondike Derby. For a refresher on how to tie knots check out Animated Knots for easy to follow video instructions.
