Troops will be cooking their own meals in site. It was a bit much logistically to plan the MB and the meals MB Booklets ARE NOT required for those working on the badge. Individual scout masters may require books for each scout or just have one with the troop as a reference. We would recommend that each troop have at least one copy of the book as a reference. At this time there is no cost per scout but we ask that each troop donate $45 to help offset event cost. Camping is included with a troop registration. For any provisional/solo scouts the $45 donation will not be expected. We will fold you into a troop to participate in meal planning and troop cost. Any solo scout that wants to attend contact me. If a troop is willing to accept a solo scout also contact me. At this time we are not planning on selling pamphlets or MB emblems. and we may add it if there are numerous troops that want that feature, otherwise troops will be on their own for that material.
