Welcome to Troop 928

Monthly Outings: Troop 928 has a year-round outings program, with an overnight outing every month planned by the Scouts themselves. In addition, the Troop or any of the patrols may plan day hikes or other activities during the year. See the list of outings and dates in our troop calendar. The Troop outings program is designed to provide the Scouts with fun, new skills, and advancement. In addition to meeting requirements for advancing in rank, outings provide opportunities for earning merit badges, including Camping, Hiking, Cooking, Backpacking, Orienteering, Wilderness Survival, and many others.

Weekly Meetings: Troop 928 holds weekly meetings at the White's Chapel United Methodist Church in Southlake, TX. Meetings are every Monday evening from 7:00pm until 8:30pm except during the summer and any special occurrences. Please refer to the Upcoming Events list to the right for more information.

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Apr 8 2017 - 6:58pm

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.

Thank you,

Annual Swim Test

Posted on Mar 21 2017 - 7:57pm

Location: Southlake Aquatics Center, 1501 W Southlake Blvd

Event Details: Annual Swim Test

All Troop 928 members (both adults and scouts),

It is a BSA requirement that all Scouts and Adults wishing to participate in water related activities complete a swim test annually, specifically within the past 12 months before they participate in any activities regarding water, whether boating or swimming. Water related activities include summer camp, lake boating weekends, canoeing / kayaking trips, river rafting excursions, etc.

As we have done in the past, Troop 928 will conduct 2 testing sessions, so that scouts and adults planning to attend summer camp and subsequent troop events in late-Summer or Fall will be eligible.

If you have already taken the swim test within the past few months for a merit badge or at another event, please make sure the troop leaders listed below are informed about it, so they can verify your test results and date, and also add you to the troop record of test results. Even if you have completed the swim test for a merit badge or at another event, consider taking it again at this time, so as to avoid complications in the future, should a water related event be scheduled beyond your renewal date and our annual test next year.

The two upcoming tests are scheduled as follows:

Saturday, April 29th from 1:30 - 3:00 PM

Sunday, May 7th from 3:00 - 4:30 PM.

Wilderness Survival Campout

Posted on Mar 1 2017 - 2:37pm

Start: Mar 24, 2017 - 6:00pm Muster at WCUMC Scout Shed
End: Mar 26, 2017 - 1:30pm Return to WCUMC Scout Shed

Campout Location – Glen Rose Ranch

Event Details:

This campout is a dual activity campout that will concentrate on the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge for those scouts that have yet to earn it. Scouts that have earned the WS MB will camp separately in a Red Dawn environment geared towards scouting activities. All Scouts will watch the 1984 movie “Red Dawn” in an outdoor theater on the property. If you do not wish to participate in the PG13 movie, please let your SPL and PL know.

For those scouts taking the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge, the “Wilderness Survival – Troop 928” presentation is attached for reference. This reference should be used as you build your daypack. You should be able to SURVIVE with the contents in your Daypack (e.g. Water, First Aid kit, Fire Starting, Signal panel, Compass). Alternatively, your backpack is intended to serve as a means by which you carry your “comfort items” (e.g. tent, sleeping bag, change of clothes, personal hygiene kit, etc.)
