Relay for Life

Posted on Apr 13 2014 - 10:31pm

Help in the fight against cancer!  As in years past, we have been asked to support the Relay for Life . This year it will be a little different. Instead of going all night long, we have been asked to be there from 3pm to midnight. The event is on Saturday, April 26 at the Texas School for the Deaf.   They would love to have some scouts come out from around 3-midnight to help with parking, unloading and managing trash if possible.  please sign up as soon as you can for this event.

District Adventure Weekend - Red Dawn

Posted on Mar 16 2014 - 9:40am

Be Prepared for the Red Dawn!

This year the theme of the Thunderbird District Adventure Weekend will be Red Dawn (yes, the old ’80’s movie starring Patrick Swayze, not the recent remake). Troops from around the District will be setting up areas to teach different survival skills. We will be focusing on shelter building ( we can totally rock that). As our older Scouts teach the skills, our young guys will go from station to station learning and competing with other Troops. In the after noon there will be big group games and more competition. The Saturday night campfire, aside from being tons of fun, will feature the Order of the Arrow call out ceremony. For boys that were elected in the February election (it’s a secret) this will be the first opportunity to get called out.
