Amarillo-Area Roundtable

Roundtable is this Thursday, November 5thst (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.

Every Scout Deserves a Trained Adult Leader!

To complete Cub Scout Adult Basic Training, Cub Scout adult leaders (all positions) must attend a Cub Scout Leader Specific Training session. Upcoming training sessions are scheduled on Wednesday, November 11 at 6:00 PM and Saturday, December 5 at 9:00 AM; and they will be held at the Scout Office in Amarillo.  In addition, if the adult leaders in your pack can get together for 2-2.5 hours at a time convenient for them, we will come to you!  Just contact Doug Bergman or Hector Baldiviezo, and let us know!!

District Committee & Commissioner Meeting

Both meetings are on Thursday, November 5th. Again, our District Committee meeting is now at 6:00 pm at the Scout Office and the Commissioner meeting is right after.

It’s that time of the year again!! Recharter Time!

The year is coming to an end, and it is time for us to recharter. 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.

Recharter packets are being distributed, starting at the November Roundtable (November 5th, 7:00 pm, St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church).  The most important piece of information in that packet is your unit’s ID number and password to get on-line.  This year we’re aiming to get everything finished up by December 15th!  If your pack has everything turned in (including all applications and recharter papers with proper signatures, fees and Centennial Quality Award forms) by December 15, the Council will pay for your insurance ($1 for each youth and adult member in your unit).  Remember, it’s a lot easier to let Stephen do your data entry, so be sure you have all your scouts and adult leaders registered before you start the on-line process.

Centennial Quality Unit Awards

Remember-units do not have to wait to submit Centennial Quality Unit Award forms with their recharters! Information about the Centennial Quality Unit Award program, and a link to the form, can be found at http://www.goldenspread.org/QualityUnit/QualityUnit.htm.  The application for the award can be forwarded to the Scout Office anytime after October 31st, but must be received by December 31st for consideration.

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

Popcorn Sales

Popcorn sales are over!! Congratulations to all Quanah Parker Units – that includes leaders, parents, all Scouts (of course), and anybody involved. The district had an outstanding turn out, and has reached its goal for Popcorn Sales. Well done everybody, well done.
