The East Trinity Trails District is one of 25 districts that comprise BSA Circle 10 Council and serves Scouting Units from Rockwall, Wylie, Royse City, Fate, Heath and the towns served by Community ISD. Here you will find the information and resources you need to locate the right Troop, Pack, Crew or Team to join scouting and/or become a trained servant leader. But most importantly, HAVE FUN!
Memo from ETTD Chair, Robert Phillips
We are sad to report that Ryan Kinkade has tendered his resignation to Circle Ten Council, BSA. Ryan will be starting at Texas A&M University Law School, Fort Worth in the fall.
East Trinity Trails Dist. is better for the hard work that Ryan has put in over the past year. This was Ryan’s first job after graduation from Texas A&M in May, 2014. It has been a pleasure to watch him grow in both his scouting knowledge and interpersonal skills as he has worked with the volunteers at ETT and the professional staff at Circle Ten.
We wish him well in his future endeavors and know that he will make an excellent attorney.
