Rohan's Eagle Project - Delayed

Posted on Jul 5 2024 - 10:39pm

Need eager scouts who are willing to help with this project. Please let Rohan know if you can help or contact him if you have any questions.  His contact information is at the bottom of this posting.

What:
The project has three key aspects--the first is setting up a trail kiosk at the beginning of the Meodowmere trail, the second is posting directional signs throughout the trail in order to keep people on the trail, the third and final aspect is trail cleanup and enhancement which is especially needed after the recent floods in the area.

When:
Delayed due to flooding around Lake Grapevine.  Stay tuned for new dates. 

Where:
Meadowmere Park
3000 Meadowmere Ln, Grapevine TX, 76051

Why:
This project is much needed because Meadowmere Trail has a big issue with campers and hikers straying from the trail. The project will aim to not only clean up the plethora of clutter on the trail after the heavy rain and flooding a few weeks back, but also solve an issue that Grapevine has been struggling with for a while.

Summit Bechtel 2025

Posted on Dec 17 2023 - 5:43am

The troop is planning to have a crew attend Summit Bechtel Reserve High Adventure in Glen Jean, West Virginia in summer 2025.  Participants must be age 14 by date of departure (June or July 2025).

Summit Bechtel offers a few different trip types:  white water rafting, ATV, or backpacking with one rafting day.  The Scouts attending will decide which of these trips the crew will do.  White water & backpacking trips are ~$1,150 each and ATV is $1,700 each.  This is the cost to Summit Bechtel for the program, travel to/from WV and incidentals are additional participant expenses.

Additional information can be found here:  https://www.summitbsa.org/programs/national-high-adventure-base/high-adventure-overview/

Crew sizes vary by trip type but range from 8 to 12 participants.

High adventure registrations for summer 2025 will open on January 18, 2024 so we need to begin planning for it now.  A financial commitment will be needed to hold your reservation as the first installment payment to Summit Bechtel is due by 3/1/2024.

I am told that Troop 928 has never attended Summit Bechtel, so this will be the troop’s inaugural crew to attend Summit Bechtel!

Please contact Kevin O’Donnell if interested (or with questions). kevinodonnell@troop928.org

You can work directly with the troop as an Assistant Scout Master or Merit Badge Counselor or help direct the Troop’s future on the Troop Committee. Don’t worry. We’ll find you a job. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact the Troop Committee Chair or Scoutmaster.

The committee also has the responsibility to provide adults for Boards of Review.
