Chess Merit Badge – May 1st & 15th

Sessions are being planned for scouts wishing to earn the Chess merit badge.
Requirements for this merit badge can be found at http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Chess

  • Session 1 – Thursday 1 May, 6pm-8:30pm, Worthington United Methodist Church, room 317 – Scouts may bring their own chess set if they wish, but this is not necessary. We will work on requirements 1 through 5.
  • Session 2 – Thursday 15 May, 6pm-9pm, Old Worthington Library meeting room – participating scouts will organize a tournament to fulfill requirement 6.

In advance of the first session, please review the Chess merit badge book or equivalent reference(s) and come prepared to discuss the topics described in requirements 1, 2, 4b, 4c, 5a, and 5b.
At the 21 April troop meeting I will have a limited number of books that scouts can borrow if need be.

For the second session, note that parking space is limited at the library so carpooling/ridesharing is encouraged.

For both sessions, scouts may bring their own chess set if they wish, but they are not required to do so.

Reminder – scouts must obtain a signed blue card.
