From the Troop 89 Newsletter mailing list:
This is what we need from each patrol for tonight's Court of Honor:
- Quinn's patrol brings salty snacks. If you bring chips, please bring dip, too.
- Alex's patrol brings dessert
- Billy's patrol brings drinks
- Josh's patrol brings vegetables
- Hayden's patrol brings paper plates and plastic cups.
Sorry for the last-minute instructions.
Our webmasters are currently in the process preparing our website for HSTS preload registration. HSTS preloading offers several benefits to the Troop 89 website, including enhanced protection against some attacks and possible SEO improvements.
Registering for HSTS preloading is an effectively permanent security mechanism. As such, our webmasters have been cautiously preparing for this update for some time. Currently, our webmasters plan to finalize the HSTS preloading process at the end of June.
We do not expect this process to interfere with the website in any way. However, if you do encounter any issues with accessing the website over the course of the next month, we ask that you notify our webmasters by commenting on this pull request on GitHub.Read more
From the Troop 89 May Newsletter:
Attention Boy Scout Leaders: Registration opened March 10th for National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). This is for Senior Patrol Leaders, Crew Presidents and other youth leaders. Here’s what the scouts will learn:
- Skills, attitudes and confidence to serve as leaders in many settings and run the troop or crew program.
- Opportunities to share ideas and experiences with scouts from other troops and crews
- A memorable and fun experience in which they’ll experience Scouting at its very best.
There are two options:
- Two weekends, June 30-July 5 at Camp Squanto, and
- August 11 – August 16 at Camp Resolute.
Learn more and register online at http://training.oldcolonycouncil.org/nylt. The cost for these specialty weeks is $425 (there is no early bird discount). If this will be the second week or more of camp this summer for the Scout, then the price is discounted to $325. The same $325 brother or sibling cost is also available.
On Thursday May 23rd 2019, our website experienced a minor HTTP outage for a period of roughly 10 minutes beginning at 4:53 pm.
During this window of time, the main page of our website was inaccessible. However, all other pages and services provided by our website remained functional. Individuals who attempted to load the main page during the outage would have received a server-generated message with an HTTP 500 response code, indicating that a server error had occurred. According to server records, twenty-four HTTP requests from three distinct IP address were received during the outage.
This outage occurred as a result of the deployment of some new software to our website, which included an update to how troop announcements are handled. This update produced a momentary discrepancy in the server's database which caused the server-side failure.
The issue was promptly discovered by our webmasters and a patch was submitted to version control at 5:05 pm.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this incident may have caused.Read more
