Good day scouts and parents

I hope you all had a wonderful time at Fort Hancock in Sandy Hook working on the Oceanography merit badge. Several of the scouts have started to complete their packets and I would like to make sure that you do not leave out any requirements when turning in your packets. Requirement number 8 gives several choices however the one I would like you to complete is
 8b which states:visit one of the following 1. Oceangraphic research ship, Or 2. Oceanographic institute, marine laboratory or marine aquarium. write a 500 word report about your visit.
   Our trip to Sandy hook with the lab work that you did covers choice 2.  So all you now have to do is write a report about your visit and what was done. Please note  I will not be counting the amount of words in your report however I do expect that you will write it as if the person reading it did not go on the trip so it should be informative. If you are not able to get it to me by next week you can also email it to me. If you have completed the packets you can give them Mr. Weldon tonight night. I look forward to reading your reports.

Yours in scouting 
Mrs. Worrell
