We had a very successful Merit Badge Session and 12 Scouts completed their Cooking Merit Badge requriements, three Scouts just started the badge at this sessions and will complete the remaining requirements after a little more work...


Saturday 22 January 2011 at Assistant Scoutmaster Jim Brent's Home from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.... (Corrected Date)

We will be finishing the Cooking Merit Badge Requirements for anyone who has been working towards them and wishes to attend. We will be preparing a meal with dessert for all to eat for lunch . We'll calculate the costs once everyone is signed up... (Cost is based on the number of participants and the amount of food we need to purchase.) You will need to email to Mr. Brent by 15 January 2011 if you wish to participate.

The main thrusts of the session is 
  1. Food Safety review and utensil maintenance, (the easy way...) 
  2. The US FDA Food pyramid and calculating the nutritional value of the meals from your patrol's last camp out -
     - along with how to calculate portions and costs...
  3.  Some Campfire cooking and baking tips, (baking will be on the Dutch Oven Cooking.)
