Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 993!

Boy Scout Troop 993 is part of the Sam Houston Area Council, Mustang District, in West Houston sponsored by Ashford United Methodist Church. Troop 993 is a boy-led troop that is mentored and supervised by adult volunteer leaders. Parents are a very integral part of our troop program. It is through their participation as ASMs and Troop Committee members that we can provide a safe, interesting and varied program. Boys ages 11 - 17 are invited to join our troop. We meet every Monday evening at 7:30 PM at the Scout building behind the Church located at 2201 S. Dairy Ashford Rd, between Westheimer & Whitington.

November Campout - Quintana Beach - Nov. 7 - 9

Posted on Oct 19 2014 - 1:42pm

Our November campout to Quintana Beach is scheduled for November 7 - 9.  We really need a couple ASMs to step up to coordinate this event.  It is the same weekend as a Wreath Accross America sale event at Ace Hardware - but other weekends in November will not work.  This will be discussed at the ASM meeting on Monday - but please consider if you can help.

Committee Meeting - October 13

Posted on Oct 19 2014 - 1:42pm

During the Committee Meeting last week - we filled some key positions.  An important philosophy discussed was teaming positions to distribute the load and get more adults involved.  With that in mind - Mike Culligan and Dereck Smith have steppaped up to handle Committee Chair. Mike will continue as Webmaster for now as that role is key to troop communications.  For the role of Health and Safety Chair, we have three Glatiator moms have stepped up - Missy LaBorde, Pam Dove, and Michiko Matsunaga have already been through the records and had books updated for the Webelos campout!!  Way to go!!  Please respond promptly to their requests to get all forms up to date.  Also we discussed recharter - Marci Collier will coordinate this with support from Chris Huff and Amanda Shoemaker.  They will be asking for adult applications for a few new leaders and getting all the new scouts registered with our Troop.   We will be posting Committee Committee minutes after every meeting - please take a look to see what was discussed.
