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.

ASM/PLC Meetings - Monday May 18 (SCHEDULE CHANGE!)

Posted on May 18 2015 - 5:22pm

SCHEDULE CHANGE.  There will be an ASM Meeting starting at 7:00pm followed by a PLC meeting at 8:00pm.   NO REGULAR MEETING ON MONDAY MAY 18.  THIS IS THE LAST TIME BEFORE SUMMER TO HAVE THESE MEETINGS SO IT IS CRITICAL FOR ALL THE NEW LEADERSHIP TO BE THERE.

COMMITTEE MEETING - May 18

Posted on May 18 2015 - 5:22pm

There will be a Troop 993 Committtee Meeting on May 18 starting at 7:30pm. This has been on the Calendar for a while - so even though the ASM and PLC meetings are now rescheduled for the same time - we will still meet.  Certain ASMs can make part of the ASM meeting then join us late.  

Note - there is not a Regular Meeting going on so this is a bit unusual.  We have a lot of planning prior to summer too.

New parents interesting in learning more about how the Troop is run are welcome to  join the meeting (be ready to volunteer!!)
