Amarillo-Area Roundtable

This fall’s Roundtable kicks off on Thursday, September 3rd at 7 pm at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church at 4100 S Coulter. The church is located on the west side of Coulter between 34th and 45th.  Roundtable is for all adult leaders!  Come and get to know your fellow Tiger Cub Den Leaders, Cub Scout Den Leaders, Webelos Den Leaders, Cubmasters, Assistant Cubmasters, Pack Committee members, Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Troop Committee members, etc.  Come to not only learn about what’s going on in Scouting in Amarillo – but to share your Ideas!  The Roundtable Staff have got an exciting year planned.

Eagle Project Reviews & Eagle Boards of Review

Adult troop leaders of Boy Scouts needing either Eagle Project Reviews or Eagle Boards of Review should contact Golden Eagle Advancement Chairman Gary Ries at 358-0552 to schedule them.  Our regular schedule of Eagle Project Reviews on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm in conjunction with Roundtable at St. Thomas Catholic Church and Eagle Boards of Review on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm at the Scout Office will resume in September.

It’s time to get outdoors!

Cub Scout Trailblazer Day on Saturday, September 26th, is a fun event for Cub Scouts, especially Tigers, Wolves and Bears.  It starts at 9 am on Saturday and finishes by 4:00 pm.  Scouts will learn about America’s great outdoor heritage with demonstrations of shooting sports, wild game calling, hunting dog training, bows and arrows, fishing, trapping and much more. Make plans now for your scouts to attend.  On the weekend of October 9-11, there will be an Adobe Walls District Camporee at Camp MKBrown.  All Council Webelos Dens and Boy Scout Troops are invited to participate.  The Golden Eagle/Quanah Parker District Camporee scheduled for the same weekend has been moved to coincide with Spring Camp on April 16-18 at Camp Don Harrington.

Every scout deserves a trained adult leader!

To complete Adult Basic Training, Cub Scout adult leaders (all positions) attend Cub Scout Leader Specific Training and Boy Scout Scoutmasters or Assistant Scoutmasters attend Boy Scout SM & ASM Training.  These training sessions will be offered at the Council Office on Saturday, August 29.  Cub Scout Leader Specific Training starts at 9 am and is finished by noon.  Boy Scout SM & ASM Training starts at 9 am and is finished by 4 pm.

BALOO Training for Cub Scout leaders will be offered in conjunction with the Cub Scout Trailblazer Day at Camp Don Harrington on September 26 (9:00 am-4:00 pm).  For more information and registration forms, click on links above.
