August Kayaking Campout!

Posted by pharris on Aug 9 2020 - 8:36pm

We will meet on Friday August 21st at CBF near the Troop trailers at 5:30 and leave at 6:00.

The troop will be camping at Wild Goose Kayak near Broken Bow Oklahoma about 3 hour drive from Coppell. We will be following all BSA, Troop 845, State and Local guidelines at the time of the campout in regard to COVID 19.

Our Kayaking trip begins Saturday morning around 9:30 AM, we will be Kayaking 8 miles down river on the lower Mountain Fork River through some great class 2 rapids and beautiful scenery. We will stop for lunch about mid way and arrive back at Wild Goose sometime in the late afternoon. I highly recommend that our first year scouts (Coyotes & Sharks) have a parent accompany them in the tandem kayak, older scouts will be allowed to use single man kayaks. 

Cost is $60.00 per person, this cost is based on food, fuel to pull trailers, Kayak rental etc.


Swamp Base High Adventure

Posted by dgieselman on Jul 25 2020 - 2:37pm

Thank you to all who have signed up for the 2021 Swamp Base High Adventure Trek next June.  Our crew is full at this time, however our interest level exceeded capacity and we need to determine if we can field another crew.  We need a minimum of seven scouts to finish out a second crew.  Whether you're looking to find a replacement trip for National Jamboree or missed the initial Swamp Base sign-up, if you have interest in this paddling adventure you should sign-up today on the troop calendar (link below) to be added to the wait list.   Questions can be directed to Mr. Gieselman at gieselman@hotmail.com. 

2021 National Scout Jamboree - Postponed

Posted by mivisentine on Jul 14 2020 - 9:24pm

The 2021 National Jamboree has postponed

It takes years of planning to create the amazing Jamboree experience. COVID-19 has interrupted the planning beyond the ability to provide the high quality experience that comes with the Jamboree on the original date. The Jamboree will be rescheduled and the Council will do its part to make it a trip of a lifetime.

All monies paid will be refunded.

Information about the jamboree postponement can be found at https://jamboree.scouting.org/ and on their FAQ's page: https://jamboree.scouting.org/nsj21_postponement_faq_final-003/
