Troop 48 Update - 3/22/20

Posted on Sun, Mar 22, 2020

Some Updates:

  • Faith Presbyterian Church said they would make a decision on 3/30 if cancellations would extend past then, so we won’t know the status of the 3/31 troop meeting until 3/30. We’ll send out an email as soon as we hear anything. It’s likely that it will be cancelled.
  • Our leader and spouse who may have been exposed to coronavirus in early March have gone 2 weeks without any symptoms. J
  • The Chickasaw Council office is closed, but they are working from home.
  • The updated Troop Roster file is attached with everyone’s contact information.

 

Keep Working on Scouting Requirements

We would like to encourage Scouts to continue working on rank advancement and merit badges. Our Scoutmasters and merit badge counselors can be contacted by phone to discuss requirements, and some of them may also do video conferencing. Please be respectful of their time and contact them to schedule a time to talk that is convenient.

 

The website below has resources to work on rank advancements for Scout through First Class:

Scouts wishing to work on a merit badge must follow the process as located on our Troop 48 website, under Policy and Procedures at this link:

https://www.troop48.org/f/docs/scoutdocuments/MeritBadgeProcess.pdf

It does start with him calling the Scoutmaster to secure a merit badge counselor. His home number can be found on the troop roster.

 

This website lists merit badges that can be worked on while practicing social distancing:

There are several Merit Badges that have multiple/serial requirements that can be done alone or in a small group:

- Hiking

- Cycling

- Backpacking

 

Some Merit Badges with longer tracking requirements:

- Personal Fitness

- Personal Management

 

Cooking requirement 4 includes multiple at-home meals. 

 

Family Life would also be a great one to work through while everyone is hunkered down. 

 

To help with tracking and documenting progress, download the Merit Badge Worksheets from this website:
