Update, we will be meeting here for our September meetings as well. September 13, 20, 27 will be at the same location as the August meetings listed below


We will be conducting our troop meeting at 
Irvington Community Center

Fremont, CA 94538

The conference room is reserved for Troop meetings planned for August 23 & 30th. We will extend the reservation for additional months if it works out for us.
We are still working with FUSD to avail Mission Valley Multi-purpose room and will keep you posted. It has become cost-prohibitive to meet at Mission Valley School anymore since FUSD is quoting $6K plus for the school year 2021/2022.
Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Hiller Aviation Merit Badge Opportunities

Posted by agandhi1 on Jul 24 2021 - 9:19am

Hi Scouts,

The Hiller Aviation Museum currently offers three merit badges, Aviation, Astronomy, and Weather

Our troop was initially planning to do Merit Badges at the Hiller Aviation Museum as a troop like we usually do, but due to certain circumstances, scouts will need to take them individually

Merit Badges and Blue Card process reminder

Posted by rhertel on Jul 19 2021 - 1:42am

It has come to the leadership's attention that many Scouts are not paying close attention to the process for earning Merit Badges. In particular, a lot of items related to the filling out and completion of the signatures on the Application for Merit Badge, aka the Blue Card, have come up over the past months. Please be reminded that the only real difference between the pre-Covid and current situation is the signatures or approvals are done electronically rather than physically. The rest of the process is the same. See below for more information that will help you get your Merit Badge completed and avoid delays or additional work by you or the adult volunteers.
