Online Merit Badge Signups -- News

The Badgetracker system for online merit badge signups is live and several troops have already signed up scouts. A couple of people have reported difficulty accessing the site. I personally have two computers, both with Windows 7 and the latest version of Internet Explorer. One can connect to Badgetracker with no problem; the other doesn't. Both of them will connect using Google Chrome or Firefox. So if you are having problems I suggest trying a different computer or a different browser. I will get in touch with Badgetracker and let you know what I find out.
IMPORTANT: The correct web address is http://campthreefalls.badgetracker.com. There is no www.

Here's what Al at Badgetracker has to say:

This problem is caused by NOT logging out of BadgeTracker.

The solution is to delete any BadgeTracker cookies from your browser.
