Merit Badge University

he Piedmont Council Advancement Committee would like to cordially invite your troop to participate in the 2018 Merit Badge University to be held on Saturday, February 17, 2018.  The 2018 location for MBU will be at Gaston College in Dallas, NC.  

Check-in will begin at 8:00 a.m.; classes will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.

The cost for the one-day event is $14.00 for Scouts and those adults taking classes.

The fee is the same as last year and includes lunch, teaching materials for the day, and a patch.

Sign up begins January 25, at 6:00 p.m. You can check your roster now and make sure everyone is listed that will be attending MBU to save you time on the 25.  


NEW-You can now reserve slots ahead of time and pay now if you wish. No mandatory money will be due up front.  You can register for classes Thursday night without having to pay for anything up front.

Money will be due by February 2.  You can pay online, mail or check or call the Council Office with a card number. If you pay online an additional 2% will be added to your total bill.


ONLINE REGISTRATION HINT-  For those of you that have not signed up for classes before, please pay attention to this registration hint.

You can checkout at any time; however, it is recommended that you checkout as often as possible as class seats are only finalized and reserved once you've checked out. This means that if one seat is available in a class, whichever group finalizes their registration first will get the seat. If you try to checkout and the seat is no longer available, a report will be shown listing which participants are in which classes that are now full. The system will then require that you change the affected schedules before checking out.

Please email me if you have any questions.
