Wood badge 125!

Posted by cstewart on Oct 15 2017 - 12:22am

Hard to believe that T1776 has another leader serving as a Wood Badge course director, but that is exactly what will happen next April. This will be Randy Konkel's 8th Wood Badge course, and it will be a great one!

Troop 1776 places a high priority on Wood badge and the training it provides for adult leaders in the troop.

Reflecting the best of nearly a century of Scouting experience, the course draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor organizations throughout the country. It builds on the best traditions and experiences of Wood Badge and also draws from a wide range of sources within and beyond the bounds of Scouting to present the latest in leadership theory and team development.

Wood badge 125 is a golden opportunity to take this training with one of our own! If you would like more information about the course, please feel free to contact Mr Konkel directly for more information at (214) 676-1809.

Andrew G's Eagle Project, November 4th, 8AM

Posted by cstewart on Oct 15 2017 - 12:22am

Andrew's Eagle project will be painting games such as hopscotch, leap frog, four square and an alphabet caterpillar on to the basketball court at Hickey Elementary School in Plano.  The date of my project is Saturday, November 4, 2017. 

I will need several volunteers to help me with this project.  We will probably get started around 8:00 am.  This project will take several hours so I will also need volunteers who can show up around lunch time and stay for the afternoon.  Any amount of time you can help will be appreciated.  Food will be provided.  Because there will be open cans of paint and wet paint on the concrete, please do not bring young children to the project site. 

You can send me an email at Andrew.c.guerra.01@gmail.com if you are able to help or for more information.  Thank you for your support of my project.
