If you are an adult member of the troop, please verify you can access the Troop Roster on this website and see the addresses and phone numbers of other adult members.  Over the Labor Day weekend, we've worked to correct a permissions issue in Scoutbook; some of you may have received an update notice from Scoutbook as part of this process.  If you cannot see the detailed roster information or if you are experiencing any issues related to the website or Scoutbook, please contact me at bryan.c.smith@live.com and I'll work with you to get it resolved.

Follow Up on Summer Camp Parent Meeting - June 25

Posted on Jun 25 2020 - 7:46pm

Thank you, everyone, who was able to attend tonight’s Parent Meeting regarding COVID and Summer Camp.  I appreciate everyone sharing their thoughts and concerns on how best to proceed with this event.  Even where we may fall on different sides of the go/no-go line, we are all trying to navigate a complex, uncertain set of concerns for our children and our families.

June 25 - Parent Meeting for Summer Camp

Posted on Jun 21 2020 - 10:34am

Parents with Scouts planning to join us at Summer Camp the week of July 5th, we'd like to have a discussion about the COVID numbers here in the state of Texas and make a final decision about Summer Camp prior to entering into a critical financial window. I apologize for having to revisit the Summer Camp conversation, but we recognize that conditions here in Texas are dynamic and that all of us are trying to determine what's best course of action for our children.
