Roundtable training is an important asset to any leader or parent!

Come learn and share ideas with your peers in the district.

This is a monthly get-together of all leaders, Assistants, Committee Members, and involved parents. Leaders who want to help their Unit Committee get the best resources, activities, and up to date information on upcoming events in the district and council.

Roundtable also enables and motivates leaders to deliver an outstanding program to their units. The district believes strongly that all of Quanah Parker’s leaders should start participating in roundtable in order to deliver a stronger program for our scouts.

GET YPT TRAINED!

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 online 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!!

Important notice: Please make sure you log on your Scouting ID after taking the on-line training otherwise your training progress might not get registered in the system Logging  on your Scouting ID allows the system to track your training progress.

District Executive Comments          

We count with talented leaders who work hard to build a strong district! I encourage our unit leaders who haven’t participated in our district committee meetings to step up and represent your unit and share ideas that could help us develop a strong district network.

Recruiting time is here! I’m excited to start our September recruitment and will be communicating with all of our units to provide you with the necessary assistance to ensure that your pack or troop reaches a successful number of boys recruited! As a district we want to give the opportunity to every single boy to be part of scouting.

We are going to use different avenues in order to recruit more boys in Moore county where access to schools for recruitment purposes is not possible. Dumas, Sunray and Cactus want more boy scouts! Their present units currently count with great leadership and are always looking for more help.

I would like to also thank the Dumas Lions Club for all their support and hospitality! I was officially inducted as a member of the club on Thursday August 19th. Many Lions have shown a strong desire for boy scouts in their city. (Special Thanks to David Bonner, Bob Brinkman, Milton Pax, Jackie Wiswell, Greg Thompson and Sam Cartwright)
