Scoutbook - New Login Address Effective over Thanksgiving Break

Posted on Dec 5 2020 - 11:28am

Received from the Scoutbook User Advisory Council:

Scoutbook moved to a new domain name - scoutbook.scouting.org last week. Please update your bookmarks accordingly if you use them to access Scoutbook. Users who installed the Scoutbook Feature Assistant Extension will need to manually update the extension or accept new permissions due to this domain change. 

Note: It MAY be necessary to clear your browser cache/history to remove old links in order to access Scoutbook via the new login site.

Known workarounds to access Scoutbook, on either a computer or mobile device, are either:
1. Clear your cache. See How to Clear Cache for All Major Browsers and clear cookies for the scoutbook.com domain. See How to Clear Cookies for a Specific Site.
2. Use an incognito or private window to access Scoutbook at https://scoutbook.scouting.org/mobile. See Finding Your Browser's Private Browsing Mode for instructions

Calendar is now on TeamSnap

Posted on Dec 5 2020 - 11:27am

We will keep posting announcements here for our Sunday eBlast, but all Calendar and meeting details, like locations or zoom links will be updated on TeamSnap.  Please make sure you are checking regularly and have downloaded the app.  It will be worth your time to link the TeamSnap calendar to your personal digital calendar if you use one - do this for each patrol if you have more than one scout. You may also want to hide the t444.org calendar if you had previously synced to it in order to avoid confusion as we are not updating the website calendar right now. 

Contact Mr. Melson, [email protected], if you have any questions or need help getting onto the tool. See you there!

Leaders: How to add content to the 444 websites

Posted on Dec 5 2020 - 11:27am

Leaders:  Please view this instructional video (Thank you, Steve Sweeney!) for the steps to add an announcement to the T444.org or T444G.org websites: https://t444.smugmug.com/Other/Website-videos/i-KjdQxs9/A

Please keep in mind:

1. You must use the leader username & login (included in video) to have access to add content. The leader login is the same for the Girls' Troop - be sure to add the same content to their site if the information also applies to them.

2. New content will be included in the Sunday morning e-blast if you add it by Saturday night. Any announcements added after the e-blast goes out on Sunday will be in the following Sunday's e-blast.

3. We can minimize the number of emails the troop sends and help our troop scouts and parents have all the information they need when we provide the information in the weekly e-blasts. Please try to communicate using the website newsletter as much as possible

4. To update the troop calendar, we are not using the website any longer. Please add event details to TeamSnap only and try to have updates submitted more than 3 days in advance so that the reminder messages from TeamSnap include all the information the troop needs (links to meetings, locations, what to expect).

Winter Camp is coming! 12/27 through 12/31, contact Rolf Gatlin by Nov 29 to secure your spot!!

Scouts & Parents,

We’re excited to announce that both troops are registered for Winter Camp at Trevor Rees-Jones from Sunday, Dec. 27 through Thursday, Dec. 31. Winter Camp is a jamboree-style event that offers merit badges, but also a wealth of centers of activities beyond merit badges.

Webelo 2 Visit

Posted on Nov 20 2020 - 4:23pm

Thank you to all scouts and adults who assisted with our Webelo 2 visit night last week! It went very well! We had 27 Webelo boys and girls attend from 5 different area packs.  

If you know of other friends or contacts who are interested in learning about joining our troop, please connect them with Katrina Gray, our membership chair. ([email protected]) She will find a time to host them at one of our future meetings. 

We also have a Virtual Information session planned for Tuesday, December 8th at 7:00 pm.  Contact Katrina to get the link if you know of someone interested in attending.  Keep sharing with your cub scout friends how much you enjoy being a part of our Troop!
