Positions of Responsibility:
Although the Senior Patrol Leader position is a very challenging and rewarding position there are many other "Positions of Responsibility" available which can also be very rewarding for any Scout who wants to learn various skills and are a requirement for Rank Advancement for the Ranks of Star, Life and Eagle.  If you would like a "Position of Responsibility" you're required to get your name and desired position(s) on the Form to be made available during Turkey Camp and during the December 7th and December 14th Troop meetings.  It is highly suggested that you indicate more than one Position of Responsibility as we can't have 7 Scribes and no Quartermaster, etc.  The form will be available again at the upcoming Troop Meetings and you can email or text message Mr. Carter anytime your preference(s) and he will gladly get your name and preferences on the required Form.  It is the full intention of the Scoutmasters and Committee and the responsibility of the new SPL that if your name is on the form by the SPL Election you will have a Position of Responsibility during the upcoming SPL Cycle which will endure until sometime in August or September.  Whichever Position you choose "Be Prepared" to do it fully and to the best of your ability;  know and understand what your position entails and if any questions ask your SPL or a Scoutmaster!  Scouting is a safe place to learn from your experiences and these positions, while you may not think you'll be the best at it, you can "Do your best" and learn new skills, improve yourself and gain positive experience from a new challenge!

Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long-term resident camping, developing leaders, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich, support, and help to extend Scouting to America's youth.

 If you are interested in being elected to The Order of the Arrow please see or speak with Mr. Carter

If you are ready to commit to the adventure of a lifetime please see attached High Adventure Agreement, sign and return to Mr. Brett Sileo, T1922 Committee Chairman.

Turkey Camp 2020 - Camp Pirtle

Posted on Nov 28 2020 - 7:42pm

On Saturday, November 21 through Tuesday, November 24, Troop 1922 attended Turkey Camp at Camp Pirtle deeeeeeeep in Panola County in the East Texas Area Council.  On the drive to camp, we stopped for a picnic lunch at Pioneer Park in Nacogdoches where there is a real Cold War era tank. When we arrived at camp, they did a temperature check and then we set up our camp.  Our campsite was huge and private but far from the dining hall which was the hub of camp activities.  Soon it was time for dinner, then evening classes started on the first night.  After Saturday evening classes, we had a Cracker Barrel with Frito pie and ice cream, and they showed the movie, “Million Dollar Arm”.  

On Sunday, we started full day merit badge classes.  Camp Pirtle offered numerous Eagle and other badge classes, and our troop was represented in most of them.  Our troop leaders were involved in classes too.  Mr. Sileo taught 4 sections of Citizenship in the World, Mr. Abercia taught a music class, and L.T. Vaughn assisted teaching Cooking classes.  On Sunday evening, the troop held the first flag retirement ceremony.  Then there was another Cracker Barrel with hamburgers and the “Lego Batman Movie”.  

On Monday, we had another full day of merit badge classes, and we helped the Search and Rescue class find Panda Emick, their stuffed panda that had a bad habit of getting lost in the woods.  In the evening, there was another flag retirement ceremony, then a camp-wide chess tournament.  Justin Impelman and Ammon Gutke represented our troop well by making it into the final 4 (out of 40 total competitors).  The Cracker Barrel that night included a snack of cheese, sausage and grapes along with showing “Raiders of the Lost Ark”.  

On Tuesday, we had a shortened merit badge schedule to finish up requirements, and Troop 1922 presented its signature white glove flag ceremony.  We finished up our classes (earning a lot of merit badges!) and packed up the camp to head home.  On the drive home, we stopped at Chik-Fil-A in Lufkin for a luxurious parking lot dinner and troop discussion of "roses, buds and thorns" for Turkey Camp.  This was our first time attending Turkey Camp at Camp Pirtle.  The woods and the lake were a beautiful setting, everyone had a great time, and we enjoyed a lot of fun, learning and fellowship.  There are more photos in the Photo Album "2020 Turkey Camp - Camp Pirtle".
