World Conservation award project

Posted by fsaenz on Mar 7 2023 - 8:01pm

The World Conservation is an award that both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts can earn. After you earn the prerequisite merit badges, all it takes is a conservation project that helps tackle a global issue. For our project, I have the support and permission of U.S Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Flower Mound to carry out a short 5 to 7 mile hike in which we pick up litter on the Northshore Trail.

The following are some more details on our project

1. Where? North Shore Trail, entering from Murrell Park

2. When? 15th of April. @ TBD

3. Fees? None. we have a permit that allows us access for free

Cycling Merit Badge

Posted by khoffman on Feb 20 2023 - 12:31pm

There will be an upcoming Cycling MB, in which our troop requested to join in.  It will be hosted by T841, along with their MB counselor, other cycling-enthusiast scouters and bike technicians.

 Start date is 11th-Mar and runs through 3rd-Jun (Every Saturday early morning). It will focus on Option A for requirement 6, and will hit the streets of Belt Line, Moore, Parkway Blvd, Sandy Lake and Freeport Pkwy.  Start-up practice will be at Campion Trail.  This is a progressive ride starting off with 15 miles by March and ending at 50 miles in early June. 

 It is imperative that scouts wanting to join will commit to the weekly schedule (missing 1 or 2 rides is acceptable) as it will be a team-ride, so lack of practice will slow the entire pack in the progression ride.


  • 15 years old and above
  • road bike (with gears)
  • helmet

 Please reach out to Mr. Alvar if interested and for other questions and details.

Thank you.

In-Search-Of: Treasurer

Posted by fsaenz on Feb 17 2023 - 8:27pm
A particular and very critical role in the Troop's Committee is that of the Treasurer. The Treasurer is the custodian of all the Troop funds, pays bills on behalf of the Troop, keeps adequate records of expenses, maintains checking and savings accounts, prepares the annual budget, and oversees pretty much any activity that involves money transactions (which we have a lot of).

We are reaching out to the adults and requesting to seriously consider volunteering for the Treasurer role to help the Troop (and Diane!).  We would like to take this opportunity to split the responsibilities of the role among two or three individuals to reduce the amount of work and time required.  The more of you that raise your hand the easier it will be for everyone.  So, if you are interested or want to find out more details just send an email to Diane and I and we'll be more than happy to sit down and discuss it further.  Thank you!

Popcorn Results

Posted by fsaenz on Feb 17 2023 - 3:18am

This year Troop 845 scouts sold over $6000 in popcorn and scouts netted $2217.70 in earnings! 

Barry Woodward did a great job serving as our Popcorn Kernel and even helped scouts stretch their earnings by adding storefront sales options!  Thank you for your hard work and commitment to making this event so successful and enabling our scouts to pocket some pretty significant $$!

We had 10 scouts participate.  

Our top salesman was Tobin Woodward earning $745.57 in commissions.  Other top earners were:

  • Blaine Margaitis - $523
  • Ethan He - $380.59
  • Turner Billingsley - $372.30

Very Well Done Tobin, Blaine, Ethan, & Turner!!  Great job to all of the Scouts who participated and many thanks again to Barry for leading this important endeavor!

Parting pop:  If you have anyone who is interested they can buy popcorn from your Scout anytime of the year using the online ordering and the commission will go towards your scout's account.  So don't feel like you missed out.
