District Roundtable

Roundtable is this Thursday, May 6th at 7 pm at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church at 4100 S Coulter. Roundtable is for all adult leaders!  If you are a new adult leader, we really encourage you to come. 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; and share your experiences.

District Committee & Commissioner Meeting

Both meetings are on Thursday, May 13th at the Scout Office. The District Committee Meeting is at 6:00 pm, and the Commissioner meeting is right after. It is very exciting to see that the Quanah Parker District Committee keeps growing, and it is ready to work and serve the youth in our community.

Every Scout Deserves a Trained Adult Leader!

Very soon any unit that does not have trained adult leaders will not be able to rechart. When you are trained it makes it a lot easier for you to get involved and do things right; and the boys get a better program and a better experience. Therefore this 2010, the Golden Spread Council’s goal is to have 100% leaders trained in all districts. If your unit has changed Cubmaster or Scoutmaster, or has new parents involved in it; they should get training right away. All the necessary training is on-line at https://myscouting.scouting.org/. If you need your Scouting ID in order to log in, please feel free to contact the Scout Office at (806) 358-6500 and ask any of the staff. Also, there will be additional training during the year so pay attention for dates and sign up. If for some reason you and your leaders cannot come to training, call Katie Loyall at 806-220-9693 and let her know. Katie along with the QP Unit Commissioners will come to you and train everybody. Don’t let this drag for too long, get TRAINED!!

Fishing Derby

Family fishing opportunity for Cub Scouts! Enjoy fishing, food and fun contests.  This information will be sent to Cubmasters and Den Leaders, and flyers will be passed around at Roundtable.  Please share this information with the parents in your Pack. There will be prizes awarded for 1st Fish, Longest Fish, Heaviest Fish, Smallest Fish, etc.  Lunch is served before awards ceremony!
