To All
Two months and we are still social distancing, at least some of us are, and it looks like it will be a while before we will be able to get together in large groups and go camping.  Summer camp has been closed so we don't have that to look forward to.  Scouting is too great a program to let go inactive so we are using the technologies available to us to keep moving ahead.  We will continue with the weekly Zoom Troop meetings, conduct rank advancement opportunities, hold Patrol meetings, SMCs  and ceremonies.  We will get back to camping eventually, when it is safe.  There is more to come with this Virus.
Camp refunds The NCAC Council has stated that they will refund the fees paid for camp if it is closed because of the Virus,  IT has been closed.  To get a refund yo…

To All Just after we finished our E troop meeting last night I got an e-mail from Nicholas. You can earn service hours for helping with this drive. Contact your friends and neighbors, tell them what you want to collect and arrange for delivery to you or you pick up the donations, then contact Nick.  Be careful, social distancing, facemasks, sanitizers are all in play. Keep track of the time you spent and report it to me. Contact Nick if you have any questions.

To All,
Last night's E-Troop meeting was very successful and went smoother as we got the hang of it.  Thomas P., our new Knots Instructor, did an excellent job with his presentation.  The Patrol Corners in the breakout rooms started slowly but once the Scouts got a feel for it, it went well.  We will continue to make refinements and adjustments and plan to include more presentations and games.  The next E-Troop meeting will take place Monday 4/27 at 7 PM.  We will continue the meetings until BSA gives us the all clear to meet again in person.
We are continuing to evolve our processes to replicate as much of Scouting in the electronic mode as we can.  All of our regular methods of teaching, Campouts, Camporee, Troop meetings, Service Projects and special sessions have been postponed or cance…

Hope everyone is well and keeping up good spirits as we meet the challenges of a new daily life cycle.  Scout neckerchiefs are good for face masks, stay home so you wouldn't have to need them.
