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 recharter. When you are trained it makes it alot 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, 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 with your Scouting ID allows the system to track your training progress.

District Executive

Our district leaders are excited to create the foundation for a quality district!

In order to have a quality district we need to continue developing quality programs for our boys within our units. During this recruitment time, we put a great effort in reaching as many boys as possible within our district with hopes of getting them involved in Scouting. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is for our unit leaders to attend and help develop our District Roundtable, as well as the other training being provided. We all agree that training will contribute to improve our program.  One of the areas we can control is our programs, and we believe it always makes a difference!

I would like to thank all the units who attended the Quanah Parker Family Campout.  The Quanah Parker Family Campout was a success thanks to Tyger Mitchell and the committee he organized for this event & ensured that all units would enjoy a great camping experience. Special thanks to Katie and James Loyall, Gemma Mitchell, Jared Read, Ray Lafferty, Joni Mickna and Scott Drdul.  It is important to recognize the great effort and time our Committee Chair members as well as Unit Commissioners are putting into helping achieve our goals as a district.  They are taking the initiative of going to different units to provide YPT training and they are encouraging our units to prosper. Thanks to our membership chairman Gemma Mitchell for putting a great amount of time and effort to help our district during this recruitment time.

Many Thanks,

Pablo Rueda
