Endorsed by Curators:
It is YOUR responsibility to do the preparation work. Remember the Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared" and for Scoutmaster Bucky events that is not a request, that is an expectation.
One requirement that is often neglected is the reading of the merit badge pamphlet (which contains most of the answers). Scouts MUST read the merit badge pamphlet AND bring the pamphlet with them to the class.
It is suggested that Scouts consider using a workbook found on the internet (MeritBadge.org has the best selection and most current workbooks)in conjunction with the Scoutmaster Bucky Class Preparation Page (found as a link near the listing on the home page where you aregistered for this class). These have been put together to aid you in successfully making the most out of this opportunity. Utilizing these resources will make a significant impact on the timeliness, ease, and effort required to complete this merit badge. Failure to prepare properly and/or use these resources will result in a lower effectiveness and completion amount at the class. In cases where there is no workbook or Class Preparation Page, Scouts should still review the requirements and prepare as best they can for the class.
Please go to ScoutmasterBucky.com for any additional questions or clarifications. Class Preparation Pages as well as Scoutmaster Bucky Workbooks (if available)and Class Preparation Pages can be found on the individual Merit Badge pages listed on the Merit Badge Index page (found in the menu on the left hand side of the web site) Also check the registration box on the main page for the upcoming class for links to these items if available.
Class ending time is approximate and may vary slightly based on the dynamics of the Scouts and the counselor.Scoutmaster Bucky Refund Policy states that there will be no refundsanytime after one week prior to the class.
