Late September update

Posted on Sep 27 2023 - 10:15pm

Timely information to be aware of:

  • Thanks to everyone who helped with the Rise Against Hunger event last Sunday.  Don't forget to fill out a service hours report.

  • On Monday (10/2), the theme is "advancement".  That means it's OK to find an ASM, merit badge counselor, or Board of Review and work on requirements.  First, as a group, we will walk through advancement resources on the website. Then we break into patrols to verify information like "who needs a neckerchief?", plan the menu for the October campout, and work on advancement in small groups. Come prepared to be tested on things that are relevant for you.

  • The deadline to register for the Oct 13-15 campout is this Monday (10/2).  If you are already signed up, fill out the carpool survey on the page.

  • You can still add your opinions to the annual survey to influence spring events: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc00Gv-BWPIVE8iWpU1JWq1FFyL-p4XXWa4hpYl0fpBxScchw/viewform?usp=sf_link. This is how the December campout appeared...

  • We added a nearby campout the first weekend of December, primarily to provide more opportunities for advancement.  Register here.

  • Adults: merit badge counselor training is Thursday (9/28) in the Youth Center. We will cover the online course (but in person), discuss the tools we use to track progress, and review a few key Eagle required badges.

Calendar website is back!

Posted on Aug 19 2023 - 7:32pm

It's been a while, but our simple calendar/email/announcement website (troop3austin.org) is back!  Troopmaster is still important and used: it is our source for roster information (exported to this calendar site), advancement, and recorded attendance at events.

Eagle Scout Sebastian Hill

Congratulations to Sebastian who completed his Eagle Boad of Review way back on March 31, 2023. His project was a shed for the tennis team at LASA.  Great job!  And thank you to Sebastian for the guidance he provided on his second Current River trip in June.
