Merit Badge Adventure 2014 Updates:

Pre-ordered FOOD -- For Scouts, Parents and Leaders at additional $5.00 per person. Found in drop down menus of sessions & badges.  Please choose either Cheese or Pepperoni. 
Add your adults, noting them AS ADULTS.  
(ADULTS will not be charged an event fee.)  Parents and Leaders will find one less thing to worry about on the morning of MBA day.  
NO name = NO Ticket regardless if added to payment form. NO exceptions!


Online Registration: 
Registration for Merit Badge Adventure is CLOSED as of midnight, November 1st.  PLEASE do NOT ask for switcheroo, nor switch Scouts in your troop.  EVERYTHING is in the Scout's name: Check In, the Scout's MBA gift and Counselor rosters.  If things are not in the Scout's name and you've done a 'switcheroo' within your Troop, the scout will end up at MBA only to be viewed as a "walk in."  NO walk-ins allowed at MBA as it defeats the BSA motto of 'Be Prepared'.

Check In area is in the printing stage so NO changes as of midnight, November 1st.  PLEASE do NOT email the MBA Registrar asking for exceptions as they is only one person against MANY requests.  No exceptions will be granted please!

Refunds are NOT issued.

Remember -- A Scout IS Courteous!  A Scout IS Kind! A Scout IS Helpful!!  YOUR HELP is needed to make an enjoyable experience for all in these last few moments of many tasks that MUST be completed before the day of 
Merit Badge Adventure.

Common question asked:  
Can Troops' early birders be registered first and procrastinating Scouts added later in the Online Registration System?  YES!  
Designated Adult Mentor can do Troop registration weekly after the SPL gives them the weekly sign ups updates.

Can pre-ordered food be done at a later date?  YES as long as the information is entered into MeritBadge.info BEFORE November 1st.  Get your registrations of merit badge session in first before classes closed for you Scouts.  Again remember to enter adults pre-ordered lunch.
