Eagle Scout Zander Rafferty

Congratulations to Troop 3's newest Eagle Scout, Zander Rafferty of the Lion patrol. Zander successfully completed his Eagle Board of Review on July 29, 2021. Zander's project was to install a slab for an upcoming shed at Doss Elementary.  Congratulations, Zander!

Techlab

Posted on May 19 2021 - 10:49pm

This summer, the Capitol Area Council will offer Techlab, a week-long day camp at Anderson High School.  It is open to Scouts and non-Scouts alike, but for our Scouts it's a great way to pick up some merit badges.  There are a lot of choices, including Welding, Robotics, Woodworking, and Engineering, as well as the Eagle required Communications and Environmental Science.  

Mask Policy

Posted on May 15 2021 - 6:38pm

I just want to update our troop mask policy in light of the recent CDC announcement about vaccinated people not needing to wear masks much of the time.  The short form here is - 

Wear a mask at scout events.  There is no change in the policy.  
 
Please get yourself vaccinated, and your kids vaccinated, as soon as you are able.  Shots are readily available now, you can get an appointment with just a few days notice at drug stores, and there are some walk-in clinics being run by the big vaccinators like Austin Public Health and UT Health.

Troop 3 CoVid-19 Activities Guide

Posted on Mar 15 2021 - 12:38pm

As of March 13, 2021, Austin is down to Stage 3.  This allows us to have small group campouts, as well as day activities.  Be careful to keep total numbers under 10 by using signup limits and staggered shifts on activities.  Please continue wearing masks at all events.  See chart below. 

The grid below reflects how we as a troop are applying the guidance of Austin Public Health to the activities we do regularly.  This guidance reflects the numbers from the Austin Public Health guidance, as well as the increased infection risk associated with indoor activities and longer-term activities.  To learn more about the APH Covid Stages, see https://www.austintexas.gov/page/covid-19-risk-based-guidelines
