Personal Fitness Merit Badge Offered

Posted on Aug 27 2015 - 7:12pm

Mr. Varga will be offering the Personal Fitness MB this fall. This is a minumum of a 12-week program and the scout will be required to attend or make-up 7 in-person sessions every two weeks. The scouts need to have a fitness assessment at the first meeting. This involves taking measurements and performing sit ups, pushups, pull ups, a stretch and a mile run. then every two weeks they need to do the activities. The measurements are taken again at the end. Each scout has to keep a fitness journal for 12 weeks. 

The first MB session will be on Saturday August 29th at 3 pm at the Briarhill Middle School track and then every two weeks.  Each scout needs to bring a water bottle and the MB worksheet (here) with a pen or pencil. They should bring a roll of toilet paper - this is the perfect height to gauge pushups. They need to come to the sessions in athletic clothing and shoes that they want to run a mile in. Register here: http://www.troop265.org/node/5158

Order of The Arrow Centennial Award

Posted on Aug 25 2015 - 7:39pm
The Centennial award can be worn on the sash and there will unlikely be any type of award like it while you are still members. Many of these requirements you have already completed. I have attached both the youth and adult requirements for your reference. Once you are done take it to the lodge to sign off on and you can then get your patch. You will have until the end of the year to complete all requirements.
 
As always if you have any questions feel free to email David Kruger at: Freddie.kruger1@me.com and I will respond as fast as possible.
 
Thank you in advance.
