New Eagle Palm Requirements

The requirements for Eagle Palms changed on August 1 this year.

If you earned Eagle before August 1, then you must follow THESE requirements to earn future palms. 

If you earn Eagle after August 1, then you will be automatically awarded with the number of palms applicable to the number of Merit Badges that you have earned, when you are awarded your Eagle rank.

For further explanation, see THIS article.

Dallas Scout Shop

Posted on Aug 13 2017 - 4:34pm

Parents: Can you help out by making a trip to the Dallas Scout Shop before each Court of Honor?

With the closing of the Scout Shop at the National Scouting Museum, the nearest Circle Ten Scout Shop is 8605 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas.  This adds to the already busy workload of the Advancement Team, and we could use your help. 

If you are able to make a trip to the Dallas Scout Shop to pick up supplies for each Court of Honor, four times a year, please contact advancements@troop842.com

If you can’t help in this way, but are interested in being involved, we have plenty of other ways help the troop – big and small!
