After a fun day of bowling and pizza on Saturday, Scouts return to regular meetings this week.
Thursday, January 27: Rank Advancement First Aid: ASPL Evan W. will be leading this meeting and reviewing first aid for rank advancement. Scouts should review the instructions given to them by our EMT Guest Speaker on various first aid scenarios in preparation for this meeting.
Reducing Waste: Scouts who want to help the Troop reduce their waste during meetings, outings, and campouts should check out this Bryan on Scouting article on how to be a zero-waste Scout troop. The key? Small steps. If you have an idea for a small step to improve the Troop’s environmental stewardship, let SPL Kristian M. know. Always mean to read Bryan on Scouting and then don’t? Well here’s a quick recap of the Top 21 columns read in 2021.
BSA & COVID 19: BSA has announced the end of COVID-19 modifications for rank advancement and merit badge requirements:
As always, the BSA’s top priority is the health and safety of all youth participating in BSA programs. In 2020, the BSA instituted several modifications to rank requirements and merit badge requirements (“advancement modifications”) to accommodate activity restrictions necessitated by COVID-19. Effective March 01, 2022, those modifications will be removed, and the standard rules for advancement and merit badges will again become effective.
