Personal Fitness Merit Badge Sessions Every Tuesday Night

Posted on Jul 4 2014 - 6:42pm

Meet at 7 pm Tuesdays at the entrance to the track at Richardson North Junior High.  Print out the workbook packet to fill in the fitness log at the end of the packet EVERY DAY you exercise.  Scouts are responsible for filling out the fitness log, workbook packet and blue card (expected to be handed out at the end of the next exercise session).  Exercise sessions should last just under an hour to complete jogging or running a mile or for nine minutes, and a minute each for pullups, situps and pushups. With any extra time, we'll go over remaining questions on the requirements section of the workbook to help you fill that out. 

Blue cards are expected to be handed out June 17. If you are at camp, pick up your blue card at a subsequent session. This list indicates who has been logged in our troop recordkeeping software as starting the merit badge. If your name is not on the list or you have a note next to it, please contact Mr. Hyder.
