Albemarle News

The Annual Albemarle District Merit Badge Weekend hosted by U.S. Coast Guard Base Elizabeth City, NC was November 11-13 and as always was a huge success.  In attendance were 155 Scouts and 69 Adults, numerous other volunteers from the Coast Guard Base and Merit Badge councilors from the community. This year the Scouts were offered a selection of 28 different merit badges to choose from as well as a weekend long new scout program for those who recently joined. The venue is perfect for this event; the Aviation Technical Training Center allows the use of its school house to teach merit badges, this in-turn allows for a climate controlled environment to maximize youth involvement and a class room setting with a selection of teaching aids.  The Air Station hosted the Aviation Merit Badge which arguably is one of the best hands on real life opportunities to earn this merit badge in the area and the Coast Guard Airport Fire Department again provided outstanding Fire Safety and First Aid merit badge training.  Many fun and popular events were offered to keep the scouts occupied in the evenings such as tours of the Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer training facility and a three on three basket ball tournament in the gym. Of course what is a scouting event without good food, Friday and Saturday night we provided cracker-barrels for everyone and for regular meals the participants ate in the Coast Guard Dining Hall facility.  No Scouting event is successful without a good program, I and of course all the Scouts are greatly appreciative and send out a big thank you to the staff and the Merit Badge Councilors that stepped up and volunteered their time.

In closing, those of you who might consider having your troop attend this fabulous event next year, it will be held November 10-12 so go ahead and put it on your troop calendar. Next August when the solicitation for help is sent out please consider stepping up yourself or reach out to councilors that you know encouraging them to sign up and teach a merit badge. The sooner we have a program developed the sooner we can open registration.  I am looking forward to seeing many of you again next year and hopefully meeting some of you for the first time.
