OLYMPICS — November 22-24, 2019

Troop 890 has been camping at Mr. Noble’s farm near Desert, Texas (between Anna and Bonham on Hwy. 121) for over 45 years the weekend before Thanksgiving. This is our annual recruiting campout where we invite Cub Scout Webelos IIs to visit our Troop and see what we are about. We continue this tradition in 2019 with something new: Girls’ Troop 890. For information and details on Troop 890 — Boys, please contact incoming First Year Scoutmaster Brian Ferrell, fysm2020@boys.troop890.org, will be leading the group of boys who are joining our Troop and starting their Scouting journey early in 2020. For information and details for Girls’ Troop 890, please contact the incoming First Year Scoutmaster, Lindsay Anthony at fysm2020@girls.troop890.org. There is no cost for visitors but we ask that you let us know who will be coming. You are welcome to stay the day AND night. The Quartermaster staff will serve a pre-Thanksgiving feast around 2 pm for all adults and visitors.

After record rainfalls in September and October 2018, we needed to do a service project for Mr. Noble to make sure we were able to enter his property without getting stuck and/or tearing up his land. We had 27 tons of crushed stone delivered in advance of Olympics. Thanks to Jeff Clemmons for bringing his front loader, and to Dru, Clint, Bruce, and Dave for shoveling and raking!!
