Welcome Troop 23 Scouts and Parents!

This web site exists to serve the Scouts and parents of Troop 23. It contains information about upcoming events and is also used for event sign-ups. We also provide links to other Scouting-related sites and use it as a repository for useful documents such as packing lists, camping recipes, and campfire songs.

A weekly Scout Blast email will continue to go out, although it will now be generated automatically from the contents of this site. You can still expect some out-of-band emails from Troop leadership as we continue to get used to this new format.

If this is the first time you've logged in, please take a few minutes to update your profile by clicking on the "My Profile" link in the upper left-hand corner of the page. Please provide at least a home phone and cell phone. Only Troop leadership will have access to this information.

If you have any questions or suggestions from improving this website, please Contact Us.

Yours in Scouting!

Joe McInvale Eagle Court of Honor

Posted on Nov 12 2017 - 7:54pm

Dear Scouts, Families, and Friends,

My Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony will be held on Friday, November 24th at 3 PM on West Point, and I would be honored if you could come. The specific location will be finalized in the coming days and I will send a note to confirm. I am excited to share this important milestone in my 7-year journey in scouting with family, friends, fellow scouts, leaders and new scouts of Troop 23. At the ceremony, you can expect there to be heartwarming speeches, scouting traditions, and of course, food to celebrate the occasion. I appreciate all of your support of me as a Boy Scout in my Merit Badges, Camps, Projects, Leadership positions and I learned a ton. I hope you can attend my ceremony so I can thank you in person.

BLUF: Use the Troop Roster Menu item to see the new patrol rosters.
- The patrols had unbalanced numbers (on multiple dimensions)
So this is how the adult leadership went about adjusting the rosters

November Events

Posted on Oct 29 2017 - 3:16pm

Lots of stuff going on for November!

- Scouting for Food. This is Scouting's official food drive that takes place once per year. Troop 23 is supporting it through collections here on West Point. Our troop has been assigned Lusk, Lee, and Thayer and Wilson Road housing areas. Patrols will be given housing area assignments and bags during the 1 NOV meeting. The intent is to distribute the bags on the weekend of 4-5 NOV and pick up the following week.
