Troop 201 Austin TexasWe are Boy Scout Troop 201 in Austin, Texas. Our scouts live in Steiner Ranch, Riverplace, Grandview Hills, Westminster Glen, Long Canyon, Glenlake, Marshall Ford, 4-Points and the Mansfield Dam area but we are open to any BSA-registered youth that wants to be part of an active and exciting troop. Come join us!

Here's the list of merit badges where we do not currently have an approved counselor. Parents, here's a good way to get more involved with the troop and fun helping our scouts earn these badges.

 

Addison Brown became one of the youngest scouts in Troop 201 to earn his eagle scout this week. The momentous event was documented in the local Four Points News. (Click image to enlarge). Congratulations Addison!

In June, Troop 201 hosted its first ever lasagna dinner as a fundraise for scouts going to summer camp (or for other scouting activities). We had total revenue of over a thousand dollars!

We served lasagna, salad, cookies, and tea and everyone seemed very satisfied. Scouts managed check-ins, serving, and also to-go orders. They also helped prepare meals in the kitchen.

Will Roberts served as Senior Patrol Leader over the entire event with Cole Smith and Andrew Hassall each providing support leadership as well. We all had a lot of fun, and look forward to doing another next year!

On Memorial Day in downtown Austin, Troop 201 participated in the CapTex Triathlon as part of the Personal Fitness merit badge. Scouts had been training for roughly 3 whole months before this!

Many scouts participated in relays, where each scout either did swimming, biking, or running. The Sprint distance involved an 800m swim, a 12 mile bike, and a 5k run. Only two scouts, Cole Smith and Garrett Moore did the full event. Mrs. Moore also did the whole event. The Moores did the Super Sprint (400m swim, 6 mile bike, and 5k run) and Cole did the Sprint distance.

For everyone who wasn't racing, they got to help at an aid station, where they gave out water and gatorade to runners at the start of the run course.
