    • NM seems to be implementing some extreme restrictions while other states are in the process of opening things up.  A week or so ago ABC News reported that states that began opening before May 4 saw no increase in deaths or infections. I disagree with what NM is doing, but that doesn't really matter.  Sad news.
    • Here, swimming pools are open. ('Round Pittsburgh, kids will swim, and we got a lot of rivers that reap as well as any virus would.) Seven Ranges in OH (which was our plan B) announced that it's closed. I'd grumble, but the per-capita mortality in Sweden -- which set up no substantial precautions --- has been excessive.
    • Not surprised given the rules in New Mexico.  Two crews were going from our Troop.  Probably mixed feelings as several were worried about travel.  
    • The next few weeks will be interesting. Our area (probably state) is almost back to normal. Little League Baseball at the nearby park is in full swing and businesses are almost back to normal. I don't know what Council is doing yet, but I can't see why meetings would be discouraged. Barry
    • Sadly Philmont has cancelled for 2020 It is with great disappointment that Philmont Scout Ranch announces the cancelation of all remaining programs for the 2020 summer season.  Due to the Governor’s COVID-19 guidelines, and the State of New Mexico Health Department’s restrictions regarding travel, our efforts to secure a portion of the summer season were denied. The safety of our participants, staff and community has been and will remain our top priority. The Philmont staff were relentless in pursuing all options and will continue to assist participants as they navigate their options. Key Points: The Reservation Contact and Lead Advisor for each crew were emailed a survey to complete after consulting with their crew.   Philmont will waive the adult to youth ratio (if YPT guidelines are met) to accommodate Scouts who will “age out” by the time they are rescheduled through 2022.  Philmont Training Center, Family Adventure Camp Participants, and NAYLE participants will receive a call next week (June 8-12) to discuss rescheduling options or refunds. Individual Trek Participants were emailed a survey to complete. Staff have received communication from the Seasonal Personnel office.
