A.  Rank of First Class or Higher
B.  Have completed the National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) OR at least one of your Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders has completed NYLT.
C.  Identify two Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders in advance; to prevent undue influence over the election and casting of ballots the identity of your chosen Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders may not be advertised, marketed or otherwise known

E.  Complete and submit to Scoutmaster the Required Senior Patrol Leader Candidate Registration Affidavit during or prior to the Campaign Speech (can be submitted during the December 7th Troop Meeting);  Affidavit attached to this announcement.
 
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!
 
In addition to Senior Patrol Leader below is a list of Positions of Responsibility that count toward Rank Advancement:
Assistant Senior Patrol Leader

Quartermaster
Scribe

Luke Alvarado Eagle Project Day 1

Posted on Nov 14 2020 - 9:35pm

On Saturday, November 14, many Scouts and Scouters of Troop 1922 got together to work under the direction of Luke Felix Alvarado on his Eagle Scout Project.  We were at the Calvary Baptist Church on Uvalde Road in Houston. 

  

The Church had a garden area that needed to be refreshed, so we cleaned up the flower beds. 

After that, we shoveled and shoveled sand to level a big area of bare earth.  Then we laid down sod so the area could be a lawn.

    

The Scouts then cleaned up some big chunks of asphalt in the parking lot.  We also filled in some low spots with the extra sand and did some power washing.  There are still some chores to do at the church to get it in tip-top shape, so Luke is planning the second phase of his Eagle Project.  Stay tuned for additional service opportunities with Luke at Calvary Baptist Church.

2020 Court of Honor

Posted on Nov 8 2020 - 7:12am

On Monday, November 2, Troop 1922 celebrated its 2020 Court of Honor at the Phillip Cezeaux Recreation Building in Humble.  Senior Patrol Leader Conley Carter presided over the ceremony honoring the accomplishments of the troop and individual scouts as well as the guidance and service of our adult leaders and volunteers.  After the opening prayer and presentation of colors, SPL Carter reviewed our troop activities since the last Court of Honor, including leadership and rank training (NYLT-National Youth Leadership Training), service projects (bike assembly for HAAM-Humble Area Assistance Ministries and Eagle service projects for C. Carter, W. Cordova, LT Vaughn and B. Colon), merit badge classes offered by the troop, and several camping trips (Lone Star Trail, Guadalupe Peak/Carlsbad Caverns/Alamo, Camp Urland canoeing & mountain biking).   

Next, scouts were individually recognized for the merit badges they earned since the last Court of Honor.  In all, twenty-six scouts were recognized for earning over 120 badges in the aggregate!  This represents building of skills and experience in numerous, diverse areas such as camping and other outdoor activities, business, the arts, technology, various trades, sports, and other specialized areas.  

Next came the rank advancement ceremony, recognizing the following scouts for their rank advancements:

Scout:  Zachary Bowen, Owen Brawn, Andrew West

Tenderfoot:  Jacob Numan, Jacob Ortiz, Neil Robison

Second Class:  Jonathan Acevedo, Nate Briggs

First Class:  Jonathan Acevedo, Dillon Auguste, Nate Briggs, Alex Glowacki, Logan Sileo, Colby Vaughn

Star:  Diego Civallero, Alex Glowacki, Elijah Pisklak

Life:  Benito Colon, Jack Garcia, Arthur Lopez

Eagle:  Terry Eugene Vaughn III, R. Athan Lejarza III, Kenneth Richard Schoel

Troop Committee Chairman Brett Sileo then gave an update on the activities of the Committee and recognized numerous adult leaders and volunteers for the great time and effort they put in to make our troop activities possible.  Scoutmaster Chris Carter then wrapped up with the Scoutmaster’s Minute reminding us how our scouting experiences will help us succeed in life and updating us on upcoming troop activities like Turkey Camp and HAAM service projects.  After the closing prayer and flag ceremony, the troop, leaders and guests enjoyed refreshments together.  It was a successful Court of Honor program, and the fellowship was enjoyed by all. 

The scouts of Troop 1922 owe a special thank you to the many leaders and parents who coordinated the venue and refreshments, especially Mrs. Sonia Garcia, Mrs. Carlye Glowacki, Ms. Nancy Numan, and Mrs. Maricela Auguste

Camp Urland Canoeing & Mountain Biking Adventure

Posted on Nov 1 2020 - 9:27am

On Friday, October 9, 18 Scouts and Scouters from Troop 1922 ventured to Camp Urland in the Three Rivers Council  DEEEEEEEEEP in the East Texas Piney Woods of Woodville, Texas for a weekend of camping, canoeing, and mountain biking.  When we arrived midday Friday, it was raining, so we headed out on our first canoe trip rather than setting up camp. Hurricane Delta was hitting Louisiana to our east, but it had a far enough reach to make our canoeing more exciting with some pelting rain and windswept choppy water. The rain let up Friday night and we were able to set up camp and enjoy the evening with a campfire and a nice hot taco dinner.  Saturday, we awoke to Mr. Carter’s bullhorn reveille reverberating through the formerly halcyon morning air. We headed out on an awesome mountain biking trail riding about 4 miles through the forest.We arrived back at camp in time for lunch sandwiches and a whole lot of work on rank advancements.  By early afternoon, we were ready for more adventures on the lake so we headed out on our second canoe trip. The water was calm but the canoe rides were rocky as we had a lot of fun practicing how to handle tipped and flipped canoes. Many scouts also worked on rank requirements for water rescue skills.  Everyone had their life jackets on so we were in good shape. We finally headed back to camp for campfire building practice (including campfire boiled eggs) followed by another delicious hot taco dinner. Sunday morning, there was a dense fog but Mr. Carter’s bullhorn reveille cut through it like a hot knife through butter. After a Pop Tart breakfast (forget Wheaties, Pop Tarts are the breakfast of Troop 1922 champions!), we headed out on our second mountain bike ride.  On this trip, we visited the historic Anderson family cemetery from the 1880s and saw many very old gravestones. We returned to camp, packed up and headed back home. We look forward to more Camp Urland adventures one of these days, maybe even during the next hurricane season!
