No in person T230 Troop meeting 18 Mar 20. Stay tuned. Likely Virtual Parent meeting at meeting time.

Posted on Mar 15 2020 - 5:29pm

Everyone, 

Due to the COVID-19 challenges and related school closing we are SUSPENDING ALLT230 in person Troop Mtgs and Events.  Last week before the escallation of the COVID-19 challenges, our Patrol Leaders Council led by Sr Patrol Leader Conner Mitrano discussed and voted to postpone our April trip. Our Scirbe has the notes of the good discussion.  Good decision by the Scouts.

Our Troop Committee and Scoutmasters are meeting virtually on Monday 16 MAR in the evening to discuss our course of action going forwad given we do not know how long this will last.  Our standard is that "when there is no school there is no Scouts".  It's a good rule. At the same time, if this is an extended event we want to enable the Scouts to learn and advance as they can, and want to ensure it can be done safely.

Please hold 7:00 PM on Wednesday, 18 MAR for a potential virtual parent's meeting but there will not an in-person meeting at the church.  Where we will share some thoughts and solicit feedback from all of you.  The meeting will be confirmed after Monday's meeting by additional email to the group.

Stay safe.  Be prepared.

Regards,

Mike Furst, Scoutmaster
