New Merit Badge Available

Written by

Some time ago we introduced Merit Badges on the forum for members who wanted to share parts of their collection or what they'd accomplished with them.  Since they were introduced we have almost doubled the number of available badges, including a number of Challenge Badges.  Now, we introduce another Challenge Badge, but this one has a little twist.

This is the EDC Pocket Dump Challenge Merit Badge, and unlike previous Challenge Badges, which require a member to achieve a task on their own, the EDC Pocket Dump Challenge Badge requires aid from two other members.  Simply put:

When Challenged, Member A must post a photo of their pocket dump and describe the contents within 24 hours of receiving the challenge.  Member A now has to choose two other members to challenge.  If both of those challenged members post their pocket dump photos within 24 hours of being challenged then Member A can request the coveted EDC Pocket Dump C20160822 114243 resized by AVG Image Shrinkerhallenge Badge, which will then appear in his or her signature line.

If the challenged members do not post their pocket dump photos within 24 hours then Member A doesn't recieve the badge, and will be unable to try again until the next time they are challenged by someone else, so Member A is encouraged to do whatever is necessary to ensure that the members they challenge know they have been challenged!

What qualifies as EDC items?  Simple- anything you carry every day since EDC means Every Day Carry, and that includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Keys and keychains
  • Knives
  • Multitools
  • Wallets
  • Watches
  • Flashlights
  • Jewelry
  • Bags, packs, sheaths, holsters etc 
  • Phones
  • Pens/pencils
  • Notebooks

And of course, anything else you may carry with you every day to be prepared in general or have for specific purposes that may relate to health, profession or any other specific needs.
