School Night for Scouting!

The Golden Eagle District and the Golden Spread Council had a great Cub Scout recruiting effort.  A lot of boys and their parents attended School Night presentations last month.  We now need to get them registered and fully plugged-in to your Pack’s program.  Cubmaster and Committee Chairs – take a minute and contact all the boys on your School Night rosters and make sure they are involved in their Den.  Also, get new leaders to training and Roundtable.  We will have time set aside at each Roundtable for new leaders to meet with experienced Cub Scouters to answer questions and help guide them in their roles as leaders in your pack.  Let’s not let all our effort in recruiting be wasted by not being sure each new Cub Scout is getting what we promised.

Amarillo-Area Roundtable

We encourage all new leaders to come to Roundtable.  It meets the 1st Thursday of each month 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.  Eagle Project Reviews are conducted on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm in conjunction with Roundtable at St. Thomas Catholic Church.  Eagle Boards of Review are conducted on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm at the Scout Office.

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.  The next time this training will be offered for Cub Scout leaders and Boy Scout leaders is Saturday, October 3 at the Scout Office.  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.

Veterans Day Parade

Mark your calendar for November 7!  Line up starts at 9:00 a.m. and the parade starts at 10:00 a.m.  The parade begins at 11th and Polk Street and ends at 5th and Pierce in downtown Amarillo.  Check-out information and register at Welcome to the Amarillo Texas Veterans Day Parade.
