Remember, to get started on a merit badge, you must acquire a "blue card" with the Scoutmaster's signature.Note: It is a good idea to make periodic photocopies of both sides of the partially completed blue card. These cards are the only record the Scout or the Troop has of the work the Scout has done toward the merit badge. Any lost requirement records will have to be done again!
