Update from the SPL 3/22/20

Good Evening Troop 125,

First and foremost, I would like to send my well wishes to all scouts, adults, and families, as we pass the time at home. 

Speaking of passing the time at home, I highly encourage scouts to take advantage of all the time to work on any requirements or merit badges that can be done at home. This will be extremely helpful to not only move up in ranks, but to become eligible for our Mackinaw trip this summer.

Stay tuned for future information and updates from the troop.

Philmont Training Update (Get Hiking)

I hope everyone is adjusting well to the new conditions.  I know that many of us, including me, haven't been getting our stair workouts in.  If you miss a workout, don't worry, just know that you need to put your all in the next workout, next stairs, or next hike.  The mental stamina that is required of you today will benefit you as you climb Tooth of Time or Mt. Baldy.  Keep pressing on and lookng forward.

Tips to help meet your training goals:

Summer Camp Update

Summer Camp Planning and Preparations as still ongoing at this time.  EVERYTHING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

Philmont Training Still On but Optional

Scouts and Parents,

I know that we are reading a lot about the changing events regarding COVID-19.  After reviewing BSA guidelines and recommendations, we will continue to train at the Stairs of Bloomer tonight.  Till further notice, all Philmont training and hikes are optional.  If someone is has been sick they are NOT to attend.  I understand there's a varying level of comfort of the situations we are in.  I also understand what each of our personal situation with families varies.  There is no judgment of a person that decides to climb stairs or does not.
