Patriot Crucible

From August 7 to August 20, 2022, Camp Edwards on Joint Base Cape Cod is hosting Patriot Crucible, a combined training exercise. Since 2017 the MAARNG has hosted and has conducted a multi-echelon, multi-domain, combined training exercise with joint elements at Camp Edwards.  During this exercise the public can expect increased activities in the training area to include range firing, training simulator use, and Solider maneuvers in the Northern Training Area of Camp Edwards.

Patriot Crucible is an intense, two-week field exercise focused on preparing Army logistics and support units from across the northeast to participate in major combat operations against a near-peer enemy equipped with artillery, helicopters and trained troops. In previous years, more than 800 Soldiers from the Massachusetts and New Jersey Army National Guard have participated in the event. They include truck drivers, firefighters, chemical experts and military police.

Cotuit Loop Beach
Per Town of Barnstable Director of Recreation, DPW rakes the beach to the high tide mark once a week.  The rake will scoop up trash and seaweed to the high tide mark.  Anything below that mark gets left behind for mother nature to take care of.  Staff picks up trash on the beach every morning but doesn’t have the capability of doing the seaweed.
The last day of lifeguards at Loop Beach will be
August 6th.  On August 7th, there will still be a Gate Attendant to check stickers and open the bathroom.  Loop will be staffed in that capacity for as long as they can.
