Court of Honor and Lock-In
With Boone County in the Red for COVID Status, the Dan Beard Council has recommended that no in-person events take place. This unfortunately includes both the Court of Honor and the traditional December Lock-In. We will not be able to have these events at this time. When Boone County is back out of the red the Youth Leadership would like to try to hold a socially distanced Court of Honor as soon as possible. This may take the form of a drive-in Court of Honor as we had back in the summer.
We are seeing a lot of community spread in Boone County currently. If the level of spread can come down, we have the potential to be able to get back together for in-person events that follow the COVID guidelines, and those types of events include camping and meeting (albeit with some changes to them). Please practice social distancing and wear masks while around others who are not in your household. Anything we can do to help reduce the spread can help our community.
Digital Game Night – December 19th
The Scouts are planning a Digital Game Night on Saturday, December 19th from 6 PM to 9 PM. This will be a great way for scouts to unwind after the school year (and finals) all wrap up. The PLC is looking into several options for games, so if you have ideas about scout appropriate online games that are fun, please send them to your Patrol Leader or the SPL.
Rank Advancement Meetings in Dec
There will be two more Rank Advancement meetings in December. One this week, and one on Dec 10th. These are for scouts wanting to work on Rank Advancement online while we can’t meet in person. There are slots open on both nights as of right now. You can sign up using the Sign up genius form. If for some reason you can’t make a Thursday night slot, please reach out to Mr. Wood and arrangements could be made for another time.
Scout Scholarships for College
It’s that time of year again where Seniors who are moving on to college are looking at Scholarships. The National Eagle Scout Association just opened up their scholarship applications for 2021. You can find out more at https://nesa.org/for-eagle-scouts/scholarships/. NESA also maintains a list of other scholarships that are open to Eagle Scouts from both religious and civic organizations.
