 School Night for Scouting!

The Quanah Parker District and the Golden Spread Council are almost DONE with our Cub Scout recruiting efforts.  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.

Cubmasters 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. If you still have applications, you need to turn them in ASAP so we can register all the boys and adults. 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

Roundtable is this Thursday, October 1st (1st Thursday of every month) at 7 pm and takes place 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, Dumas, Cactus and Sunray – but to share your Ideas and Positive Experiences in Scouting!  The Roundtable Staff have got an exciting year planned.

District Committee & Commissioner Meeting

Both meetings are on Thursday, October 8th. District Committee meeting is now at 6:00 pm at the Scout Office and the Commissioner meeting is right after.

Each Quanah Parker commissioner has been assigned a number of units, and they should be introducing themselves to every unit. Unit commissioners are here to provide training, help, guidance and support to your unit. Our goal for the end of the year, for all the Quanah Parker Units, is to rechart on time and earn their Quality Unit Award.

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, October 3rd 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.

Spook O Ree!!

Spook-O-Ree is an opportunity for the boys and their families to start the Cub Scout year off with a fun Halloween themed outdoor event, so we encourage all of you to participate. Registration begins at 12:15 PM and activities will start at 1:00PM. Both Haunted Ghost Walk and Spook-House open at dark.

Early Bird registration will close on Thursday, October 1st. Remember, all Pack reservations must be received in the Scout Office by then. There is a limited space available at each location so please register early!
