Beginning on January 1, 2016, H.B. 910 will allow a person with a current concealed handgun license, or a person who obtains the new “license to carry a handgun,” to carry a handgun in a concealed manner or openly in a belt or shoulder holster. The rules related to where and when a license holder may openly carry are essentially identical to where and when a concealed handgun license holder can carry under current law. Of course, those rules remain complicated.

Last year Trophy Club participated in the ‘blue light movement' and many residents turned their front porch light blue in support of law enforcement. ‘Turn Trophy Club Blue’ lets every First Responder know that they are supported, no matter what uniform they wear.
Keep a blue light (porch light or flameless candle in the window) burning through the night from December 31, 2015 to January 31, 2016 to show your support for Public Safety.

The 5K route is the same as the July 4th 5K (see graphic below). The 1 Mile Run route goes around BNHS and should not impact traffic. The Reindeer Romp benefits Northwest ISD PE Departments.
Please prepare for…
