Pinewood Derby!!!

Posted on Apr 23 2021 - 11:53pm

Scouts,

Pack 928 is having their Pinewood Derby May 22nd.  Most of you have not participated in this Cub Scout event because you were never Cub Scouts.  Well, it is a fantastic experience!  Therefore, we have arranged for our troop to use their track.

 

Come to the troop meeting this Sunday and pick up a Pinewood Derby kit to start creating your masterpiece.

Swim Test

Posted on Apr 23 2021 - 11:47pm
Troop 1928,
 
You need a swim test!  Yes, if you (adults and youth) are going to summer camp or want to participate in any aquatics activity with the troop you need a swim test.
 
Fortunately Troop 928 has arranged for two opportunities and are allowing us to participate! 
 
The swim test will be offered at the The Marq Southlake in Bicentennial Park; the two dates are:
 
Saturday, April 24th (9-11am)
Thursday, April 29 (4-6pm)
 
Please get tested on one of these dates.  We are not planning on arranging another opportunity.
 
 
To sign-up, parents should follow the below link. The $5 fee is payable at the time of sign-up.  Non-members will need to create a free guest account.
Swimmers will be permitted to warm up in the Activity Pool which is right next to the lap lane (separated by a float rope).  Marq staff will conduct the swim test in Lane 1, closest to the slides. 
 
It’s important for parents to understand they may not present their Scouts to the Marq outside these times and expect the swim test to be administered.  The Marq aquatics staff has specifically arranged swim lanes and lifeguard staff for this event.
 
The BSA swim test is as follows: 
 
Swimmers pass this test: Jump feet first into water over the head in depth. Level off and swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be completed in one swim without stops and must include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating.
