Scoutmaster-Update
ZOOM meetings
Well, we had a good run this summer and fall, but the state of VA has issued guidelines restricting numbers of in person meetings, so we will have Zoom meetings for the foreseeable future.  I’ll send the Zoom invite out tomorrow.
ELECTIONS
Has 6 Months gone by?  Well yes it has.  Elections will be held November 23 via Zoom.  The SPL will talk about the various roles available in tomorrow’s meeting.  If you are running for SPL, you MUST talk to me first.  Please email me directly.
Dues are Due! 
2021 dues are due.  As a reminder, the troop pays all dues for recharter (we are undergoing right now), which means if you don’t pay your Scout’s dues, then you will have to re-apply next year (which is a HUGE pain). Please see Mr. Van Goethems email from last week.
We never want the ability to pay dues to stand in the way of the Scouting experience.  If you would like a scholarship, please contact me or any Adult Leader directly and we’ll take care of it!
Wreath Sales
THANK YOU EVERYONE!  You all did a tremendous job this year selling wreaths, and this helps support this outstanding Troop into the future!!
Prince William Forest Park – Orienteering – November 13-15
A Great time was had by all!
No Meeting November 30
Take a break after Thanksgiving!
Small Group Camping – December 4-6
Although we don’t do a Troop outing in December, the first years are planning a limited-numbers trip to Gore VA from December 4-6. They would like a couple of older scouts to come with them if you have the weekend free!  It’s a bit farther away – 2.5 hours.  If you are interested please contact Mr. Farmer at requiem_dios@yahoo.com
 
Scouting for Food
Sorry about the cancellation – we are on our own this year.  More to come with the rescheduled date.
