GDX Overnight Lock-In, Thursday August 20 to Friday August 21

Posted on Jul 25 2015 - 8:36pm

Troop 1001 kicks off the scouting year with an overnight lock-in August 20 - 21 at Group Dynamix, an indoor ropes course and team-building facility in Carrollton. Please sign up here. After bringing scouts to 1215 Trend Drive in Carrollton, parents should stay for a short meeting to learn what exciting activities and campouts are in store for the upcoming year and how you can best support your scout having fun and advancing in the troop.

New this year: Lock-in will be THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, rather than Friday and Saturday as in the past. Also, cost is lowered to $20 per scout.

Group Dynamix  1215 Trend Dr. Carrollton, TX 75006 (972) 416-9646

Thursday, August 20 - 8:00 pm: meet at GDX in Carrollton

Pick-up: Friday, August 23 - 7:30 am sharp or earlier

Fill, print out, sign and bring the GDX consent form and the Troop Permission Form, The cost of the event is $20 per scout with additional money for vending machines. It is preferable to pay $20 cash or online (coming soon).  If you write a check, please make it payable to Troop 1001. Adults are welcome to stay throughout the night and are not charged to participate as chaperones.

All the fun will conclude at 7:30 am sharp on Friday morning.  Parents should arrive promptly to scrape up their scouts and allow the leaders to go home and recover from the night.

Pizza will be served late at night so each scout should have dinner before arriving.  Dress in Activity uniform.  Closed-toe shoes are required.  Scouts who feel they may not stay up all night may plan to crash on a bean bag chair or may bring a sleeping bag. 

To give an idea of the order for the evening: scouts arrive at 8 pm OUTSIDE the venue to form in patrols. Patrol leaders will collect GDX permission slips, troop permission slips and activity fees from scouts outside.  Once we are allowed inside the venue, scouts will sit on the lobby floor until GDX leaders allow them into the activity areas. Parents will head to the meeting area expected to be in the laser tag room. That meeting should conclude around 9:30, after introductions of troop adult volunteer leads, a preview of the scouting year events and other important troop news.

It is important that all parents return to pickup their scout(s) by 7:30 am.

Scouts and Adults Sign Up for Flags for Independence Day

Posted on Jul 9 2015 - 5:16pm

Please sign up here to help place up flags FRIDAY July 3rd or pick up flags SATURDAY July 11th.   


Flags Out July 3rd             http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054baaae2aa20-independence2


Flags In July 11th               http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409054baaae2aa20-independence


The flag program is a major fund raiser for Troop 1001.  The Canyon Creek Home Owners Association Flag Program grew to 470 flags last year and it is still growing.  The troop places flags in the neighborhood north of the church for four patriotic holidays.   The Troop is paid $1 for each flag placed the Saturday before a holiday and another $1 for each flag picked up the following Saturday.  Eight Saturdays a year we need at least 8 drivers and 16 scouts from 8AM to noon.  Typically we are done and eating our scoop of ice cream at 11AM.


The signup may be different than you recall.  The 2014-2015 Patrols are responsible for filling the assigned volunteer spots.  When you sign up, look for your patrol leader or your son’s patrol from last year  Adults can also sign up at the bottom for the Freebird (adult) patrol.  


If you can't sign-up online, please contact Paul Young 972-207-3083.  Scouts cannot use the time for BSA-required volunteer hours, but they do count toward school or community volunteer hours.

2015 Sea Base Recap

Posted on Jul 9 2015 - 5:15pm

The troop's 2015 Sea Base crew is back and had a great time.  The crew completed the Coral Reef Sailing Adventure which included a week of sailing, snorkeling, fishing, (lively card playing) and other fun at Sea Base.  Capt. Spencer even recognized them with the Captain's Award for being such a great crew.  On the way back the crew got to take a air boat ride through the Florida Everglades.  Good times, great memories.  Check out the pictures on the the troop Shutterfly site - troop1001.shutterfly.com.
