Order of The Arrow Centennial Award

Posted on Jul 2 2015 - 5:05pm
The Centennial award can be worn on the sash and there will unlikely be any type of award like it while you are still members. Many of these requirements you have already completed. I have attached both the youth and adult requirements for your reference. Once you are done take it to the lodge to sign off on and you can then get your patch. You will have until the end of the year to complete all requirements.
As always if you have any questions feel free to email David Kruger at: Freddie.kruger1@me.com and I will respond as fast as possible.
Thank you in advance.


New Troop Trailer!

Posted on Jul 2 2015 - 5:04pm

On Monday, Mar-Properties donated and delivered a new Lark V-Nose trailer. It is a tandem axle 7 x 16 foot trailer with electric brakes and a five year warranty. Troop 265 heartily thanks Mar-Properties and all their gracious owners for this HUGE blessing and look forward to using it soon as we move our growing Troop to scouting adventures across the country. Scouts - look for an announcement soon on an opportunity to design the graphics for the outside of this trailer!

Thank You from Troop 265....

Here is a picture of the trailer with Cody G. and his mom who is an owner of Mar-Properties.

NOAC 2015

Posted on Jul 2 2015 - 5:03pm


The lodge has just released the following info about NOAC 2015:
NOAC, the National Order of the Arrow Conference, will take place August 3-8, 2015 (August 2-9 with travel), at Michigan State University. It is a time where Arrowmen from all around the United States gather to participate in many activities including high adventure skills, leadership classes, Native American crafts, sports, patch trading, and various special events and competitions. This NOAC will be a very unique experience as 2015 is the 100 th Anniversary of the OA. Due to the significance of this event, all those attending will receive a special edition red sash not available to anyone except those attending NOAC. However, space is extremely limited as there is a record number of people attending. The Lodge has 93 contingent slots available so anyone who wishes to attend must submit an application. The youth and adults will be selected from among the applicants, giving priority to youth as there is a limit of one adult per three youth. The applications are available on the Lodge webpageor by clicking here for the Youth Applicationor clicking here for the Adult Application. The application with a deposit of $100 is due by November 31, 2014, and can be mailed to or turned in at the Longhorn Council Office. The total cost will be between $600 and $700 depending on the final price of included transportation.
I would like you all to consider to go to this once in a lifetime event. I know that there are fundraisers the troop is doing in the following months that could also help offset this cost (that includes everything). If you have any questions feel free to contact me at Freddie.kruger1@icloud.com or you can contact the OA officers on the website. This is the perfect opportunity to experience an Order of the arrow event on the national level and gain new relationships and experiences.

Philmont Trek 2016

Posted on Jul 2 2015 - 5:03pm

Our Troop has secured 3 Treks at the Philmont Scout Ranch for the Summer of 2016.  We have our dates!  June 28th- July 10th- 2016.

Those that have signed up, please verify that these dates will work for you.  We will begin to form the crews, so that they may begin hiking together to prepare for the trek.  If you need to be removed from the list, please contact Mr. Kidwell by email.

This is a High Aventure Camp, and requires that the Scouts be at least 14 years of age before departure.  It is a 12 day event, and a trip that will be remembered for rest of your life.

We need to gauge the interest, and begin to develop a list of boys that want to go.  Signing up at this time is only a preliminary committment, and will get you on the list.

The fees for this trek are $870 per person.  We have some time before all the money is due, but the Troop does have to send a deposit this month to secure our spots. 

This is a fee that can be paid over time, but must be paid in full before the event.

Sign up here if you are interested.
