The event-wide game is a great way to experience as much of the Momentum Launch event as possible, while earning points and competing with friends. There are badges for all sorts of things, from attending a training or watching the Chef’d Cookoff to running a 5k at home or even sharing a video of you rocking out to your favorite tune. Each of these badges earns you a certain number of points, anywhere from 50 to 600! Registered delegates who earn 15,000 points and complete the 8 core requirements explained at the bottom of this page by 11:59 p.m. EDT on August 9th will receive a special participation patch. Each night, the top 10 scorers will be featured on the event-wide game leaderboard. Registered delegates can self-report the badges they earn in NOAERS from August 4th-9th. Remember: a Scout is Trustworthy! Not a registered delegate but want to get in on the fun? Sign up today at registration.oa-bsa.org.
When completing activities to earn badges, remember to stay safe and healthy. Always wear a mask when in public or group settings. Practice social distancing and follow all state and local guidelines. Additionally, some activities involve physical exercise. It’s important to stay hydrated and to not overexert yourself. Take regular breaks and drink plenty of water. Always remember to use common sense.
Have fun and earn as many points as you can!
