Sign Up for the Skating Merit Badge at the Dr. Pepper/Stars' Ice Rink in Euless

Posted on Nov 20 2014 - 8:35pm

Scouts, got some time off next week during the Thanksgiving Break?   Troop 730 has reserved a registered merit badge counselor to teach the skating merit badge for next Wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving) at the Dr. Pepper/Stars Ice Rink in Euless.  Skating is one of the most fun merit badges to earn.  SIgn-up on the right side of this website and we can see if we can get some car pools going.   There will be a $10 fee for the skating rentals and ice time, and bring some money for lunch - the concession stand will be open for the boys to buy lunch and snacks.   What a fun way to spend a few hours earning a merit badge!   The ice session begins at 11:30 am, and the counselor has asked us to arrive at the Euless ice center no later than 11 am and be laced up and 100% ready by 11:30 am.   We should be finished by 1:30 pm.  We can coordinate the exact details of departure time once we know who is going - so please sign-up on the website.  We'll also need some parent volunteers to ensure that we always have two deep leadership.  Bring your warm jacket and have some fun earning the skating merit badge!
