This event is SOLD OUT.

Due to the limited space available, an email was sent via troop blast requesting a ‘show of hands’ and ‘firm interest’.

Ken Gedgaud and Mark Haasser are going to be your Scout leaders for the day and they need you to do the following:

We are going to depart from Christ Lutheran Church at 7 a.m. on Saturday April 25th.

Please be on time since this is a long drive and we can’t be late.

The program runs until 4 p.m. and you all are going to stop at a fast food place to grab dinner on the way home. It’s a 2.5 hour drive so expect to arrive back at the Church around 7 p.m.

We will call when we are 20 minutes out from the Church to come and pick up the Scouts that night.

Homework.  There is an online questionnaire the Scouts need to fill out as pre-requisite work for the Merit Badge. They ask to have it all submitted 3 days prior to the workshop. You can see the homework link here – . If you have any questions on the homework or are having problems filling it out, please let Ken Gedgaud know for help. You can reach him at
Program Fees. The program fee is $15 payable to Troop 188, that covers the UW event fees AND gas for the drivers. Please make sure to turn in your Workshop fees at the desk as soon as you can. 
Food. Scouts need to bring a sack lunch to be eaten during the program. There is no cafeteria close to the labs, so please bring lunch. In addition, you are going to stop at a fast food restaurant on the way home so Scouts, please bring some spending money ($5-$10) to cover dinner. The Workshop coordinators did say that they are going to do an illustrative exercise with Skittles that the Scouts can then eat as a snack during the program. If your Scout has a dietary restriction or allergy where they can’t eat or be around the candy, please let me know. 
If you have any questions about this Workshop, please let either myself or Ken G. know. Thank you!
