"Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?"

Posted on Feb 18 2013 - 9:03pm

BSA is promoting a new TV show called "Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?", which will be aired on the National Geographic channel. The show premieres March 4 at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central. BSA didn't consult with me on this one, so I can't vouch for the quality of the program content. :) Here is a link to the show's promo video.

Winter Camp Announcement

Posted on Aug 29 2012 - 10:12am

Hello everyone.

Its about that time again. Winter Camp. This year it will be Dec 26-31 at Camp Strake located just North of Houston off I45. It is a great time to get 4-5 merit badges. For the younger Scouts, its a great place to learn what an extended camp is all about, without the heat of the summer. The merit badge list should be posted Nov 1st, so keep your eyes open for just the right ones. Ian and I plan to attend and are looking forward to having others join us. As time gets closer, we will have a couple of meeting to discuss what and how we will participate. Please email me and cc the Scout Master and Committee chair if you are going to attend Winter Camp. Our emails are on the Troop web site. Please look at the SHAC web site for more information.
