Guidance for Scout Events

Posted on Mar 26 2020 - 12:06pm

March 18, 2020

Dear Longhorn Council Scouting Family,

The Longhorn Council cares deeply about the health and safety of all our Scouts and every member of their families. Based on guidance from our public health leaders, the Council is updating our calendars and recommendations to units.

Through the end of April all district and council events and camporees, trainings, meetings and weekend camping are cancelled or postponed, with the exception of meetings that can be conducted electronically by conference call or online meeting or other means following accepted public health guidelines.

Also, through April 30, units should postpone or cancel all in-person meetings that will not follow the CDC guidelines for social distancing or cannot be held remotely using technology. While this public health measure presents challenges, Scouting can continue. Advancement can still happen. Small den or patrol meetings might be possible (in person or via remote communication). We all have to be creative.

Please know that Scouting does not need to stop during this time. Encourage your Scouts to work on their advancements at home or virtually with their merit badge counselor. Leaders may go online and take a training course. Find a way to conduct a virtual Roundtable.

Congratulations to all the scouts that graduated Twin Arrows today!  One dedicated week learning the art of Leadership.

Catt and Sydney represented troop 1928 well! 

A big CONGRATULATIONS to Sydney as she was awarded "Honor Scout" for the entire week!!

This week’s Sunday meeting is cancelled

Posted on Mar 15 2020 - 12:38pm

The next two troop meetings have been cancelled.  We will evaluate further meetings week by week as the COVID19 situation evolves.  Our Scouts, Parents, and Volunteers’ health & safety is our top priority!  Be safe.  Wash your hands and practice good behaviors when interacting with others to keep yourself healthy. 

During your extended Spring Break, pick out a merit badge or two or three and get going on them.  It is a great way to beat the boredom and to get a jump on your next rank!
