Mulch Install Saturday (4/20)

Posted on Apr 15 2019 - 9:12pm

We are installing mulch this Saturday at the Goddard Pre-School in Flower Mound.  Address is 4051 Cross timbers R. Flower Mound TX 75028.  Plan to meet there at 9 AM.  RSVP on our web-site.  Bring gloves, refillable water bottle, and (just-in-case) a lunch.  But if we all pull together we should knock this out more quickly.  As a reminder - these funds are going to help pay for our new trailer - so we really need everyone there.  See you there!

Scout Skills Campout - Rescheduled to April 26-28

Posted on Apr 11 2019 - 10:06pm

We are moving our Campout back 2 weeks hoping that better weather will let us teach skills better.

This weekend we're having our annual Scout Skills Campout at Stone Ranch (Honey Grove, TX).  Here are a few things to remember:

- Food Shopping is Thursday night, 7-8 PM, Walmart @ Ohioe & Rt-121 - meet at the front of the store near the Grocery section

- Friday night meet at the Church at 6 PM to load the trailer, eat dinner first, make sure you have a reusable water bottle and a flash light on you in a day pack (not in your bag)

- Attached are the directions and a gear list

- Weather forecast calls for temps in the 60s during the day, 40s at night, and a rainstorm sometime Saturday (hourly forecast not yet available - will update on Friday morning)

Please email spl@troop416.us and scoutmaster@troop416.us with any questions.

This summer our Troop will be sending two crews to Minnesota to canoe in the backcountry of Canada.  There are two open slots for anyone that is interested - Scouts must be 13 by the time we leave (June 23rd).  We could really use one additional adult.  Please see Mr. Grenier for any questions.
