Alright, here is the deal: Covid really isn’t going away. We have to deal with it.
BSA rules say (for meetings) we can meet in groups of no more than 10 people, and only from two households. That really doesnt do anything for us or our Scouting format. **We are however, authorized to conduct “unit level outings/activities/events/camping/day activities” limited to 10 people (including adults). This means we can do weekend stuff for small groups-like patrol activites. More on that tonight.
Tonight we are moving to using Discord exclusively. It is free, we can have split off groups for advancement and stuff like that. Video is available and we can mold it however we want.
For future meetings, and “gatherings” we need to come up with some ideas. Right now it is a bit too dark and too cold for outdoor activites on Tuesday nights at our regular meeting times. Maybe we can come up with a schedule where we plan a weekend activity/hike/camp/etc., twice a month? Or have the Patrols plan their own outings-two adults required for each outing (YPT). We can discuss this further tonight.
Anyway, here is the link to discord, if you don’t already have it:
