                                DEADLINE November 6,2009
The purpose of the Merit Badge Saturday is not to have a Merit Badge Factory, but to motivate Scouts
to achieve rank advancement by introducing them to the process of earning merit badges in pursuit of
Eagle rank. Our secondary goal is to improve the quality of the Scouting program and to give boys the
   opportunity to earn badges and be exposed to some extra ordinary things. As with anything, the
                           effort you put in is reflected by what you obtain.

        READ and STUDY THE MERIT BADGE BOOK IN ADVANCE AND
           BRING IT WITH YOU,AS YOU WILL REFER TO IT OFTEN
           DURING CLASS.
        Bring Worksheets.
        The First Aid merit badge is an Eagle required badge. At the Merit Badge
           Saturday we provide you with an intense, full day course that enables you to
           meet the requirements, if you are properly prepared.

Before the Merit Badge Saturday we expect you to do the following:

   1) This is an all day course. You must be present for the entire day. If you take the
      First Aid merit badge you will not be able to take any other merit badge.
   2) You must know all the Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class requirements
      from your Scout Handbook. These are: to explain and demonstrate any of the
      Tenderfoot Requirement 12, Second Class Requirement 6 and First Class
      (Requirement 8). You will be tested on these requirements. Bring your signed
      Scout Handbook as proof.
   3) You should read and have studied a current version of the First Aid Merit Badge
      book. Pay particular attention to the requirements. Bring to class.
   4) Bring a household first aid kit to the Merit Badge Saturday. This must be a kit
      you made yourself (you can buy materials at the store, but please do NOT just go
      out and buy a complete kit). The First Aid merit badge book has some good ideas
      on what should be in the kit. Alternatively, you may make a “patrol” first aid kit
      to carry on back packing and camping trips. This should be larger and more
      complete than the personal first aid kit that you always carry with you. In either
      case, be prepared to discuss the reason and use of every item in your kit.
