COVID-19 -- Handle with Care (Still)

Posted by rhetrick on Aug 29 2021 - 8:41pm

We expect everyone in Scouting to follow the measures listed below, which are based on CDC guidance. Members, staff, and volunteers must also follow all federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. In addition, we have instructed local councils to consult with their local and state health departments, as well as local chartered partners, in order to implement appropriate protocols to help keep members, volunteers, and employees safe.

  • Isolate if you are sick, and do not attend any activity/meeting/event if you, anyone you live with, or anyone you have recently been around feels unwell.
  • Do not attend any activity/meeting/event if you or anyone you live with has been tested for COVID-19 or another illness and does not have the results back yet.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, wear a face covering or mask that covers your nose and mouth and stay at least 6 feet apart from people you don’t live with.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • As always, please exhibit the Scout Oath and Law as we continue to navigate a safe return to the activities we enjoy.

We have been offering access to our meetings by Zoom for some time, but no one seems to be using this feature.  We plan to discontinue this, unless anyone interested in attending this way tells us otherwise.  Contact Bob Hetrick at rjhetrick@gmail.com if you want us to still offer a Zoom feed and will take advantage of it.

And we're back!! Our Troop meetings  resumed on August 23 at Congregational Church of Sun City and our next meeting is on Monday August 30!. We look forward to seeing everyone at the meetings. Our PLC met earlier in August and has produced a draft of the calendar that was formalized at a Troop Leader meeting on Saturday August 28.  You can find Version 1 at the link on the left side of this website as you see it here:

We expect to have version 1  ready for handout at this coming Monday August 30 meeting.

One thing to think about is that we have a big Court of Honor on Monday, September 27.  We'll celebrate the accomplishments and advancements from our Summer activities at Camp Geronimo and the Philmont Scout Ranch and much more.  All Scouts and their families are invited.  Be sure to put it in your plans!

Uniform Patch Placement

Posted by rhetrick on May 26 2021 - 6:53pm

I just had a question from the parent of one of our new Scouts crossing over on patch placement.  Here is an illustration that can help.  Note that the Arrow of Light patch goes centered below the left pocket.  The right pocket is a choice.  Over your time in Scouting -- as soon as at Summer Camp! -- you will get a number of patches that can go there.  When you end up with a lot more patches to show off than you uniform can hold, that's what vests are for.
