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.

Troop Elections

Posted on Mar 25 2017 - 4:44pm

As discussed, please find the troop leadership survey attached. Each scout wanting a position other than Patrol Leader or Asst. Patrol Leader needs to pre-register for a position using the attached survey. The results will be used to guide the youth leaders during the elections next Monday.

Each patrol will vote to elect their PL and ASPL after the troop elections.

As a reminder - the SPL position requires previous advanced leadership training at an approved BSA training event. All other positions are required to take ILST, which is taught by our troop at a special training event, typically one or two weeks after the elections.

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.
