2019 Fall MBU!

Hello Scoutmasters!

This year we are excited to offer a small opportunity to scouts from further distances with a stay on Friday, November 15th at Camp Patiya. This, however, is limited to 100 Scouts and Scoutmasters, the cost will be $7 per Scout. Food will NOT be provided, and tents are a requirement to camp, this is a great opportunity for those Scouts coming from a distance.

For this MBU we will have to require scouts to print out their materials and bring them to their classes, as unfortunately, we are no longer able to fund the printing process.

Registering a Troop and Entering Scout Preferences

We have a new website for registering scouts. To do so, please go to www.mbu.online. In order to register your scouts, you must first register as a scoutmaster. To do so, follow the “Sign up” link on the home page.

In order to sign up for an account, you must fill in all of the fields (we will never share your contact information with anybody unless you give us permission. Your email address will be used for communication, and to login to your account)

On the new site you will get a warning like the one below about your profile needing to be approved by an administrator. You will not be able to add scouts to your profile until we approve you.null

Once you have been approved, you will see the following page. Click on Manage troop to get started. This will take you to a page that can answer more of your questions. If any of your questions can’t be answered on that page, please let us know and we will do our best to answer them.

And that’s it! While we believe that the new website should be fully functional, this is our second semester using it so you may experience some problems that we haven’t anticipated. If you do have any problems, please contact us at: crew492@colorado.edu. We will do our best to resolve the issue you are having as quickly as possible.
