MBU7 Lottery Instructions

Due to limited space and high demand, MBU will fill Horsemanship, Metalwork, Robotics, Shotgun and Welding by lottery.  Please read the instructions carefully.

  • By FEBRUARY 13, 5 pm, email the names & unit number of your Scouts interested in Robotics, Shotgun and Welding to Beth Wheeler ( All communication must be through one unit representative.  Individual families may not submit names.
  • On FEBRUARY 13, the names will be drawn to fill the classes. Once 2 participants from the same unit have been drawn, no others from that until will be allowed.  Morning vs afternoon sessions will also be determined by lottery.  A waiting list will also be drawn. In the event that a Scout or adult changes their mind the class slot will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.  It is not transferable to another person within the unit.
  • On FEBRUARY 14, the unit representative will get an email telling them which of their Scouts were chosen for the classes and if they have been assigned a morning or afternoon session (Metalwork and Robotics only). This email will include further registration instructions.  If you do not receive an email, none of your Scouts or adults were selected.
  • On FEBRUARY 16, Registration opens at 8am. Lottery classes will be populated by MBU Admins.  No one else will have the ability to fill these classes.

If your chosen Scout or adult no longer wishes to participate in the chosen class, please contact Beth Wheeler at so the slot can be reassigned to the next person on the waiting list. 

If you have any questions, please contact Beth Wheeler with any questions. 

Good luck!
