hello scouts
disclaimer: the plan may have changed form what it was earlier.

this email is directed to people who have a part in the upcoming meeting. For starters, Jack would you mind doing flag calling? we are in need of a caller. Mr. Blincow could you ask Braden to grab tents form the scout locker. Owen, For the group instruction, would you please come up with a speech about what goes into a good menu. I was thinking about you talking about my plate and maybe throw out some ideas for menu items. Gabriel can you help instuct people on how to set up a tent correctly with guide lines? Matthew are you still able to help teach people how to set up dinning flies. Kai could you please help with alternate shelters?

Court of honor tonight in the time of COVID

Good evening Troop,

We are excited to celebrate our FIRST Court of Honor this year! We will start at 6pm TONIGHT at Vadnais Sucker Lake Regional Park

The Masters of Ceremony have worked hard to design a program that will recognize our scouts' accomplishments in these unprecedented times while keeping us all safe and healthy.

We are modelling this on the Music in the Park that several cities have done and our Campout where we camped by patrol.
The keys are keeping our distance and keeping groups from mingling.

To that end, We as that you observe the following:
1) If you have symptoms or were potentially exposed, Please do NOT attend. We'll miss you but it's the responsible thing to do
2) Masks are Mandatory
3) SeatingBy Patrol in Family groups: Bring a chair, we're spreading out. We ask that each family sit together and that you leave 6 - 10 feet between family groups.
The Patrols Family groups will be seated separately and spread out. This may cause some issues with reading the slides, but you know what they say, listen to the presenter, don't read the slide anyway.
The B-P (1st years) and Cowboy (6+ Years) Patrols and their families will sit Stage Left near the playground.
The Some Scouts (2-3rd years) Patrol and their families will sit in the Middle near the parking lot / sidewalk
The Ball Patrol Scouts (4-5 years) and their families will sit Stage Right
4) Food and Drink (Why wasn't this first, right?)
We are NOT providing drinks. Please bring your own beverage
Snacks Mrs. Higley and Mrs. Arndt have arranged for individually wrapped treats at the end. Please pick them up individually when you pick up your awards.
5) Awards: Awards will be arranged on the tables by patrol. When released, please wait for your patrol's turn to be called and then go up individually and pick up your awards.

THANK you for your incredible Scout Spirit and helping all of us to stay safe

Mr. Blincow

Scouts for Hire opportunity - Loftus Garage cleaning - 09/20 4p

On Sunday September 20 at 4 pm we will be having a a scouts for hire event at Mr. Loftus’s house. Mr. Loftus just had his garage reroofed and he needs help taking everything out of the garage attic fire brigade style, cleaning out the debris, and then putting it back. Scouts for hire is a free will offering donation that gets split evenly amongst the people who work at according to the time they put in. This is a great way to earn money for High adventure trips or to pay for your Scouting.

Keep an eye out for another scouts for hire opportunity coming in early October.

Thanks so much guys,
