2018 October Campout - Big Bend

Posted by tmcsimov on Aug 16 2018 - 9:31pm


The October campout theme will be hiking and exploring Big Bend National Park.  This trip will have a flexible agenda.  They will need to decide if they want to go to see a sunrise or sunset and what they want to see during the day as a group based on the car they are traveling in.  There is a lot to do in Big Bend and distances are great.  

Backpacking Option for High School Scouts.  An option for this trip is the backpacking option.  We will give adults and Scouts that have graduated 8th grade and older the option to backpack the South Rim trail on Sunday and Monday.  This is one of the most majestic hikes in Texas and is on anyone’s list of the top 5 trails in Texas.  It is a hike on lists such as the list of the best 100 miles of trails in the national parks.  In other words, this is a tough hike with a great reward of scenery that is unique.  See the campout flyer for more details and some of the expected scenes you may encounter.

September Campout - Water Skiing/Tubing

Posted by tmcsimov on Aug 16 2018 - 9:30pm


The September campout theme will be water skilling.  Scouts wishing to earn the Water Sports merit badge will work on the requirements for that water skiing. Depending upon participation, those Scouts may also have the chance to go tubing. We will have some TTFC activities for our younger scouts when they are not skiing or tubing. Our goal will be to get the Scouts wanting to do the merit badge completed on all skiing performance requirements..

Our former Committee Chair, John Carney, who lives out at Possum Kingdom Lake has graciously offered to cook dinner for the Troop on Saturday night.

Thanks to Mr. Carney, Mr. Joiner, Mr. Burdette, Mr. Reining, and Mr. Shull for bringing their boats for this campout.  If any other adults have a boat they can bring to the campout, please contact Mr. Wille.
