Take note of the weather on November 5th; we will be outside (regardless of the weather) looking for Geocaches; be prepared and dress appropriately! Lastly, you will be unable to complete the Geocaching Merit Badge during this class session as requirements 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d (whichever you choose) and 9 will need to be completed on your own.

 

Parents – you are welcome to stay for the class.  FYI – I will have other adults helping with the class; therefore, the meeting will have adequate “2 deep” leadership.
