Scoutmaster's Corner

(The latest message from the Scoutmaster.)

On 3/23/20, the Troop Committee, ASMs and SPL/ASPLs met to review the current status of activities. Here is a quick summary of the discussion:

Advancement

- Scouts close to Eagle & those working on merit badges w/Mr. Shepard, Mr. St. Hilaire should contact them directly to continue with their completion and to set up a time to meet by phone/video call.

- Family Life MB: Need a Counselor and then need to invite Scouts to sign up for the class

- Scouts First Class and below can continue to work on advancements with their parent; completion entries should be made online through Scoutbook by parent

- Additional info can be found at https://www.mayflowerbsa.org/rank-advancement-and-covid-19-coronavirus/

Virtual Patrol/Troop meetings - SPL Nathan will investigate with PLC & patrol leaders

Trips - March (Cachelot--cancelled) Checks will be destroyed/cash returned; Nathan will find out who shopped and then who needs reimbursement, if any (if the Scout shopper consumed the food, then there should not be a reimbursement)

April (Holt's Ledge) - Canceled/postponed for now; was not reserved or paid for.

April (Scout-O) - Will likely need to be cancelled/postponed, given curr

May (Greenough) - Is reserved and paid for; TBD if Troop is going or not

June (Nantucket) - Ferry tickets already purchased by Sean; will check on refundability; perhaps best to reschedule to late August or Sept.
