Troop 505 has scheduled a professional fitness instructor to counsel any Scout interested in earning the Personal Fitness Merit Badge or complete the Tenderfoot Fitness Requirements. The counselor is planning to attend the June 11th Troop meeting from 7-8pm to review progress on requirements.
From 8-8:30pm the Troop will be planning Backpacking Meals for the upcoming Mount Mitchell Backpacking Trek on June 13th-15th. If you are a Scout planning to attend the Mount Mitchell Trek you MUST attend this Troop meeting.
PLEASE WEAR YOUR CLASS B TO THIS TROOP MEETING and come prepared to exercise.
Any Scout interested in working with the Personal Fitness counselor must read the BSA Personal Fitness Merit Badge Pamphlet, have a complete BSA Health Form B signed by their physician and complete requirements 1-5 (in preparation for a discussion with the counselor), prior to our Troop meeting.
If the counselor feels the Scouts has successfully completed the requirements 1-5 for the Personal Fitness Merit Badge, we will begin working on requirements 6-7. The Personal Fitness Merit Badge Workbook can be found at http://meritbadge.org
We will complete the first section of the Tenderfoot Fitness Requirements by recording your best in the following tests:
