During our last Troop meeting this past Monday, Blake McMiller successfully completed his Board of Review and has achieved the much-coveted rank of Eagle Scout!

On the board were members of our Troop's Advancement Committee, and a representative from the Sam Houston Area Council (pictured with Blake).

With this rank advancement, Blake now becomes the 4th Eagle Scout of Troop 1922!

Further details of Blake's Illustrious career as a Scout of our Troop will be in a forthcoming issue of the Troop 1922 Times.

7 Ways To Determine Direction Without A Compass

determine direction without a compass

1. Find the North Star

A little astronomy goes a long way. Find the Big Dipper, which is one of the clearest constellations in the northern night sky; it looks rather like a ladle.

The two stars that make up the “pouring” side of the ladle line up to point directly at the bright North Star.

2. Moss on trees and rocks

The idea that moss tends to grow on the Pole-side of trees and rocks, away from the equator and therefore the sun, is a misnomer.

The idea probably started in a region where this was the case, but internationally, it doesn’t hold true.

Specific regions may have types of moss and lichen that do grow this selectively, but there’s too much variation to rely on this as a rule unless one intimately knows the flora and region in question.

3. Tracking the sun’s shadow

When the sun is approximately in the middle of the sky, plant a stick in the ground and mark the tip of the shadow. Wait half an hour or so and mark the tip again. A line between the two points is approximately east-west.

4. Using the crescent moon

When the moon is at its highest, draw an imaginary line through the tips of the crescent and trace it down to the horizon. That point lies approximately south of your position in the northern hemisphere, vise versa in the southern hemisphere.

5. Drier hillsides face north/south

Look for flora that appreciates drier microclimates, such as cacti. In the northern hemisphere, cacti and other dry-loving plants will be more numerous on the south facing slopes. Vise versa for the southern hemisphere.

6. The wristwatch method

This works on old time analogue wristwatches, not so much with digital ones. You can get round this by quickly drawing a clock face of the current time on a piece of paper and orientating it appropriately.

Hold the watch face flat and, in the northern hemisphere, point the hour hand at the sun. Bisect the angle between the hour hand and the 12 o’clock mark, and that’s your north-south line.

In the southern hemisphere, point the 12 o’clock mark at the sun, and bisect the angle with the hour hand.

7. Improvised compass

Magnetize a needle by stroking it extensively (in one direction only) on natural fibers, put it on a floating leaf or piece of wood on still water and it should orientate north-south.

2018 Show & Sell is On!

Posted on Sep 8 2018 - 11:02pm

This weekend, several of our Scouts are out in front of our local Walgreen's selling the Boy Scouts' famous Trails-End popcorn. Did you know BSA's partnership with Trails-end began way back in 1980?!

Hopefully the sunshine will continue for another day. It's great to watch our Scouts get excited about promoting BSA and offer delicious popcorn to our neighbors, many of whom look forward to buying it year after year! It's always fun to listen to Eagle Scouts in our area share their stories, and tell our Scouts how being an Eagle Scout has so positively impacted their lives, and encourage them to keep it up!

All Troop 1922 Scouts should plan to help out with our Show & Sell this year and to support our activities. We will be selling at Walgreen's again later this month as well.  Here are a few shots of our troop's Salesmen in action! (sa)

Scouts Cheerfully Demonstrate Scout Spirit on 1st Day of School Year!

Posted on Aug 25 2018 - 11:08am

These 7 esteemed and distinguished Scouts of Troop 1922 showed their Scout Spirit on the first day of the 2018-2019 School year this past Monday!

If they're asked how they demonstrate Scout Spirit in their daily lives at their next Board of Review they'll be able to show some evidence!

You might also notice how some of the Scouts demonstrate "A Scout is Cheerful" a little differently from one to the next!

 

Popcorn Sales - Show & Sell

Posted on Aug 18 2018 - 8:04pm


Show & Sell Popcorn has arrived!

Please sign up on the website for a few shifts to sell popcorn, over the weekends of Sept 7-9, and 28-30, at the Walgreen's on FM 1960 @ West Lake Houston Parkway.  We'd like 2 Scouts and at least 1 adult leader at each 2 hour shift.

Take Order forms (for sales door to door, to family, friends, etc.) will be handed out at Monday's Troop meeting. 

Popcorn sales are an important way Scouts of Troop 1922 help support all of the great activities we do all year and all benefit from. The more we sell, the more we can do!  And the earlier you get started, the more you can sell!

Prizes will be awarded to Top Sellers. This will also count towards your Salesmanship Merit Badge!
