What’s Next

Mon, Mar 18: Troop Meet­ing, Scout Hut (7:00pm)

Wel­come to your new Troop web­site! The old web­site served us well for many years but it is time to move on. I hope you find every­thing you need here and if not, just let me know and I will see what I can do to make t140​den​ton​.com the infor­ma­tion trea­sure trove that helps our unit run as slick as snot on a pump handle.

You will notice that the most of the infor­ma­tion you grew accus­tomed to with the old site can also be found here. The “What’s Up” sec­tion keeps you informed of near-​term events as well as events hap­pen­ing far­ther out. You can also find all of the doc­u­ments and forms in this section.

The “Sign Me Up” sec­tion is where you will be able to sign up for upcom­ing cam­pouts and other events. This sec­tion also con­tains the pack­ing lists and a way to pay your account.

The “About Us” sec­tion pro­vides much of the infor­ma­tion that prospec­tive and new scouts and par­ents are look­ing for. At the bot­tom of this sec­tion is a way to sub­scribe to the var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ca­tions that Troop 140 uses. If you received an email announc­ing the launch of this new web­site, you are already sub­scribed to all com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Please note that within these com­mu­ni­ca­tions will be options for UNsub­scrib­ing as well.

I would love your feed­back on the new web­site as well as receive your input for other ways we can use this resource to help our Troop run smoothly.

Thank you for your patience dur­ing the con­struc­tion project!

–Mr. Moody

Merit Badge Mania will be held on Sep­tem­ber 6th and 20th in Bridge­port, Texas at the Wise County cam­pus of Weath­er­ford col­lege from 1-​6pm. Scouts MUST attend both days. Scouts have the oppor­tu­nity to earn up to 3 merit badges with a total of 65 merit badges to choose from. The fee for the Merit Badge Mania is $20 per Scout. A few of the merit badges have an addi­tional charge. The merit badges that require an addi­tional fee have the fee printed on the Merit Badge Selec­tion Sheet. The for­mat for the classes will be three 80 –minute time slots. Scouts need to select 8 desired merit badges in order of pref­er­ence. Some of the classes require more than one ses­sion. Scouts need to have read their merit badge books in advance of class. Scouts need to wear their Class A uni­form and bring their own pen/​pencil, paper and merit badge books. Home­work may be required between classes and may require addi­tional work after the sec­ond class to suc­cess­fully com­plete the merit badge require­ments. Please also see the Release of Lia­bil­ity that Weath­er­ford Col­lege requires. If your Scout is inter­ested in attend­ing Merit Badge Mania please con­tact Mr. Garneaux.

Please bring money for Sat­ur­day lunch.
