Virtual Scout Meeting Instructions

posted May 21, 2020, 6:51 AM by Webmaster Troop433   [ updated May 28, 2020, 5:17 AM ]

A quick lesson on how to attend our Troop 433 Virtual Scout Meetings. Look at the troop calendar on the right-hand side of the home page. On this calendar will be all of our virtual meetings.

To access a meeting, at the appropriate meeting time, click the event on the calendar and look for the meeting link in the description. When you click the meeting link, you should be taken to the page where you can join the meeting.

As always, parents are encouraged to join the meetings also. Please note, that if more than one person in a household joins the meeting from separate devices, there can be unwanted echos and feedback. It is recommended that if two people are in the same room, they should share one device to connect to the meeting. If you must use two devices, please turn off the mic and speaker on all but one device. This should prevent echos and feedback and make the meeting enjoyable for everyone.

Flag Ceremony

posted May 6, 2020, 5:05 PM by Webmaster Troop433

Commands for a Standard Flag Ceremony 

Said by the Color Guard Commander:

1.     "Please stand for the presentation (or retiring) of Colors." 
Note: Said before flags enter the room or begin motion.

2.     "Scouts, Attention."
Note: All Scouts stand at attention.

3.     "Color Guard, Attention."

4.     "Color Guard, Advance." 
Note: Color Guard advances to stage or flag pole, U.S. Flag is first in line.

5.     "Scouts, salute." 
Note: The Color Guard stays at attention. Color Guard Commander and Scouts Salute.
Scouts salute the flag any time it is in motion.

6.     "Color Guard, Halt."

7.     "Will the audience please join me in the Pledge of Allegiance."
Note: Color Guard does not salute or recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Nor do they sing the National Anthem. They stand at attention and guard the flags.

8.    "Two" 
Note: After completion of the Pledge, Color Guard Commander gives the Command "Two." Upon this command, scouts lower their arm smartly to their side from the salute. Meaning-- A salute has 2 steps: the first step is the gesture, the second step is the release of the gesture.

9.     "Color Guard, Post the Colors." 
Note: Once the flags are posted into the flag stands, the color guard salutes the flag and then stands at attention.  When retrieving the colors, the color guard first salute the flags before removing them from their posts.

10.  "Color Guard, reform. Forward."

11.   "Color Guard, halt."

12.  "Color Guard, at ease." (or "Scouts, dismissed" if this is the closing)
Note: The Color Guard Commander may direct the Scouts to be at-ease or to be seated.

Cyber Chip

posted Apr 24, 2020, 8:28 AM by Scott Lovell

Scouts need to renew their Cyber Chip each year. Here are the steps to making it happen.

Fill out the Cyber Chip Workbook section for your grade in school. Parts of it require your parents, so plan a time to do this together. You will also watch at least three Cyber Chip training videos for your grade level. Links are in the workbook or you can find them directly from the NetSmartz website (click Watch Now from the main page). Finally, you will teach what you have learned about internet safety using the EDGE method to another scout. This can be done in our breakout sessions during our weekly meetings.

Email the completed form to your advancement chair.

Here is a link with information about the STEM NOVA program.  There are also links to the requirements for the awards.  I thought you might want to forward this if there were some boys interested.
