Hello Families, It is that time of year for all of us to recharter for the upcoming 2021 year of Scouting. I know that 2020 has not been what we signed up for when it comes to Scouting. As we have been keeping up with our meetings through Zoom and have not been able to go on any outings, we are striving to slowly work towards outings and Scouting activities with the help of the safety precautions and mandates given to us through BSA. With that, we are planning for a much more active year.

Thank you all for sticking it out with us.

Camps are reopening, Troops in our District have started hybrid meetings, District and Counsel activities have resumed, and campouts are starting to be approved all with social distancing practices.

We are hoping that everyone will return and that Troop 20 will come back with a bang. Let's all show the other Troops in our District that Troop 20 is stronger than ever.

We are asking that all families please respond to assistantscoutmasters@troop20austin.com by December 18th with your intent to continue on with Troop 20 in 2021.
It is families like yours that keeps Scouting and Troop 20 going, Thank you!

Looking forward to seeing everyone's face again in the new year,
Your Troop 20 Leaders

Great Times on-line

Many of you are really making headway by earning merit badges on-line!!  Some on-line offerings are for partial requirements only.  Be sure to reach out to your ASM's if you need to locate a local counselor to complete some of the in-person requirements.  GOOD WORK!

Adults attend meeting with their SCOUT until the Cyber Chip training is documented! YPT for all!!

Hope you are practicing social-distancing and staying safe!!  Troop 20 is excited about the opportunities to try new ways to keep on scouting !    While it is somewhat easy to follow YPT during our physical meetings, all of the on-line meeting options require the additional step of documenting whether the youth and his family have recently completed the annual cyber chip training.  Until the Troop has a record of this documentation, a parent or family member MUST attend any on-line meetings, training, or other activities TOGETHER WITH their scout.
