Warning!!! You have until Mar 1 2020 to get yourself registered with BSA and complete YPT training.

Our progress with BSA is going well. We are hoping to be in beta testing by mid-February. Once this is activated, here is what to expect:

Adults must enter their BSA Number, DOB, First and Last name. We will poll BSA and get back an answer. At this point one of three things can happen:
1) Your registration is verified - you can continue using normally
2) You are not registered or your registration has lapsed - your prior rights are revoked and you get the same screens that you see before your login
3) You are registered but your YPT has expired - your prior rights are revoked and you get the same screens that you see before your login

You have about a month to get yourself registered and complete YPT training. After that, your access will be revoked.

We are making some changes.   Starting March 01,  2020, every user must have a valid BSA ID to manage events, register scouts, and update counselor pages.   BSA does background checks on all registered adults and we will follow their lead before granting access.   

Why are we doing this?
1. To provide higher security and validation of all adult users.
2. To clean up the mess we've accumulated via 15 years of poor user data entry.  

How will we do this? 
When you update your profile, you will be required to provide: Last name, first name, BSA ID, and your Date of Birth.   The website will submit this to BSA to validate your account.  BSA will return your Council, District, Unit, and the date you completed Youth Protection training.  We will periodically validate this access level with BSA and update your registration status based on the data returned.

What should you do? 
Login to and copy your BSA ID Number then update your profile on  Let others in your unit know they should do the same.  We are giving you 2.5 months advanced notice to make this work.

Sponsor Information
This event is sponsored by Troop 26 in the Eagle Trail District of the Circle Ten Council located in Melissa, TX.  This is an LDS Church Chartered Unit.  The primary purpose of the event is to reach out and provide opportunity for scouts and adult scout leaders living outside the North Dallas Urban areas.  The communities this event is intended to serve include Sherman, Durant, Bonham, Anna, Van Alstyne, Princeton, Farmersville, Celina and the Melissa areas.  This is the first annual event at this location.  This event is set up on a first come first served basis.
This Merit Badge Pow Wow and adult training event is a two weekend event.  Most all adult training classes will be completed in one class meeting.  All Merit Badge classes will require two classroom meetings for each session unless otherwise indicated.  The first class meets on November 7th.  The second class meets on November 21st.  Most classes are two hours long.  Blue cards will not be issued but a report will be distributed (via e-mail) to each registered student.

The first class sessions begins at 8:00 AM and the last class sessions end at 12:00 noon.  Because some classes are only one hour long there is the potential to register for 4 classes.  However, most young men will only be able to sign up for two or three classes. Please make sure you do not overlap classes or sign up for more than one class occurring at the same time.
Counselor Information
Merit Badge work sheets will be provided for each student registered in your class.  Please distribute these to each student and return these work sheets to the event sponsors at the end of your classes.  If a student wishes to take the worksheets home to keep working on the requirements, have them take photos of their worksheets with their cell phones or write down what they need to be complete.  Also, turn in the Merit Badge Requirement Summary & Attendance sheet after each class.

You will need to provide your own projectors and multi media presentation equipment.  You will also need a multi outlet extension cord if you use this type of equipment.  We will provide chalk and erasiers for you to use on the chalkboards located in each classroom.  Also, please bring all displays and tools you may need.  Please call or write if you have other questions or needs.

Please note that except for bottled water, no food or drink is allowed inside the building. 
Unit Sign-up Instructions
Sign-ups are on an individual basis.  Unfortunately group sign ups can not be accomodated.  If you have questions please e-mail Mark Williams.
