Athletics Merit Badge

Special offer of discounted price of $20 for Boy Scouts to attend the Battle of the Piney Wood classic game with Stephen F. Austin vs. Sam Houston State on November 1. Scouts will be able to participate in the pre-game Athletics Merit Badge out on the Houston Texans field, will also meet former Houston Texan JJ Moses and receive commemorative patch per Scout. Contact Cameron Walker at 832-667-2103 or Cameron.Walker@houstontexans.com to secure your seats today! This event will work towards but not complete the goals for the athletics badge. A checklist will be provided at the event of completed requirements.  (I do not have at this time which exact requirements they will be completing but have been told it will a majority of them) There is not an official start time at this moment since they are still getting details worked out with NRG Stadium and the participating teams in the Battle of the Piney Woods.  That information will be relayed to all once finalized.  More than likely will be around 11am-1pm start time. Regards, Vernon

Remember that merit badges are first come first serve. It is in the best
interest of our Scouts to get our names in as quickly as possible.

In addition we need to highlight that if you have completed a merit badge you should not
take the class again. Specifically, Horsmanship, Archery, Rifle and Shotguns that have
limited capacity. These are fun classes but in the spirit of Scouting we should
let everyone have a chance to participate!

Please contact Mr Hamlin or Mrs Duncan with any questions.

This is a great opportunity to earn Merit Badges and have fun with your friends
from troop 464 and accross the Bay Area Council!

I hope to see you all there!

2015 NOAC Information

Arrowmen,
Here is some information about 2015 NOAC.
It runs August 3-8, 2015 at Michigan State University.
The lodge has estimated that NOAC will cost about $1200. This will most likely go down because the lodge has not decided the mode of transportation yet.
