2009-2010 Program Kick-off meeting

Mark your calendars.  We have planned the 2009-2010 Golden Spread Council Program Preview and Kick-Off and we would like to have ALL adult leaders attend.  At a minimum, you should have one leader from your unit in attendance.  You will receive information on all of the upcoming district and council Programs, Fall Recruiting, Popcorn, Trainings, Camps, etc. and you will participate in a time saving and very useful calendar planning session.  When you leave, you will have planned your unit’s activities for the next year!

We will have a drawing for those units in attendance and one unit from each district. In addition there will be 5 random drawings and winners will receive $100 credit to their unit account. That’s a total of $1,000 we will be giving away.

Also, every unit in attendance will receive rank advancements (cloth patches) for your Scouts FREE for a year!

Please plan on attending – it will get your Scouting year off to a great start!

Unit Popcorn Kernels for 2009

Summer will be over before we know it and this year’s Popcorn sales are right around the corner!  Linda Cummings is our District Kernel, again this year.  Has your unit recruited its 2009 Popcorn Kernel?  Please let Steve know who will be representing your unit for this year’s sale.

The Council wide Popcorn kick off meeting is scheduled for Saturday, September 12th.  Please see the Council section of this newsletter for details on times and location.

 Dalhart Cub Scout Day Camp was a Blast

The Dalhart Cub Day Camp was, once again, a great activity for our kids.  All of the Cubs in attendance had a blast!  Thank you to Amy Gonzalez, Kipper Turpin and all the other adult volunteers for putting on a great camp!  You guys do amazing things for your kids in Dalhart!

2009 Woodbadge Course

I strongly encourage all Pack, Troop & Crew leaders to take the Woodbadge training being offered by our Council, this fall.  The first of two training sessions begins in September.  This training will make you a better leader now and help to give you the big picture, on how all of our programs work together, to make our kids the best they can be.  Please contact Scott Kilian, at 580-358-6500, for details on cost and sign up.
