Score-O

Posted on Sep 12 2021 - 1:36am

Who: Scouts who register before Oct. 1st.

Note:  This event may have more demand than campsites available.  If we are unable to get a campsite, we may have to change to a day trip to Sid.  The registration deadline is set early to try to insure we get a spot and give the Troop plenty of advance notice if we need to make a change. 

When: Friday 10-15-2021 6:00 PM CT to Sunday 10-17-2021 10:00 AM CT

Cost:  $35

What: For 20 years the Longhorn Council’s largest Scout event and one of the most popular orienteering events held in the USA.  Orienteering is an international sport that consists of finding control markers in the field from locations marked on a map.  This year’s competition will start in the main camp area by the dining hall.

Each team gets a 5-color map for each participant 5 minutes before their race starting time.  There are 75-85 flags/markers shown on the map and you must find all you can in 3.5 hours. Some are easy to find & some are hard.  Each flag is worth 5, 10, 15, 20, or 30 points, depending on how hard it is to find.

Plan your strategy to find the most flags and maximize your score!!  The Orange & White markers in the field are identified with a number to let you know if you have found the control flag. To prove you found the marker you write down the marker's code number (attached to each marker) on the score card. No hole punches to touch in 2021!.

Orienteering is a team event, so be sure to register by teams of 4-6 Scouts, Venturers, Explorers, Webelos, or Adults.  At least TWO registered adults must accompany each Webelos team.  Your team needs a compass and a watch or stopwatch so you’ll finish on time.

Participants should bring at least 2 or 3 full canteens or water bottles. NO WATER STOPS in 2021. The sections of camp we use for orienteering have some areas of thick vegetation and can be very rocky.  Wear long pants and good trail shoes or boots.

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Jan 21 2021 - 9:19am

We made a large number of Merit Badge counselor updates. I encourage all Scouts to click on the Merit Badge Resources link to review the current Merit Badge Counselor list in order to determine the current counselor for your area of interest.

Parents we are always looking for volunteers. We would love to add you to the list of Merit Badge Counselors if your vocation or hobby matches a Merit Badge. Our biggest needs are Camping, Hiking, Environmental Science, Orienteering, and then any Merit Badge for which we have either one or no counselors.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the Merit Badge counselor updates. (click on "read more" to see name and email FF )
