Guidance for Scout Events

Posted on Mar 21 2020 - 10:25pm

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.

Cancelled March Backpacking Campout

Posted on Mar 21 2020 - 10:25pm

Cancelled

Where: Lake Mineral Wells State Park
Start: 
Return: 
Cost: $20

For March we are going to go on a Backpacking campout. All supplies will be carried in our backpacks, and we will pitch our tents at a primitive campsite. We will hike at least five miles to the campsite to satisfy either 2nd class rank requirement 3a OR part of Camping Merit Badge requirement 9b. Sunday morning we will hike 2.5 miles back to the parking lot. We’ll have lots of fun and complete other requirements by cooking with lightweight stoves and using a map and compass. Scouts will need to bring their own food to cook on a lightweight stove for lunch and dinner Saturday, and pack for a cold breakfast for Sunday.

Scout Meetings for March 16th and 23rd are cancelled

Posted on Mar 14 2020 - 1:43pm

To all Scouts,

Troop 928 Scout Meetings for March 16th and 23rd are cancelled. This cancellation is in direct response to Coronavirus protocol deemed necessary by state and local health officials. In addition, our charter organization has cancelled all on-campus activities.

At this time, we have not cancelled the hiking campout. Since this is a fluid situation, the campout will be evaluated as we get closer to the departure date. If you plan on attending, please register so we know who would like to participate. We will make the go/no-go decision by the 23rd.

As always, the health and safety of our scouts is our top priority. We feel these cancellations are our best and only options at this time. Please continue to monitor our troop website for information. We will update it as needed.

During your extended School 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 advancement!

Yours in Scouting,

Michael Sidener
