  1. From Term 2, 2020, we will be using Zoom for on line meetings. Your Scout Leader, Richie, will send you a Zoom invitation each week to join the meeting.  6th Melbourne has purchased a Professional Edition of Zoom with increased safety and encryption as well as a password needed to join the meeting. As we learn to use this new format we will be trying a slightly altered schedule- see below.
