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.


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 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 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

Let’s have fun with our boys.  I encourage our leaders to create exciting programs for their boys! We face a lot of competition, and we are limited in time to make an impact on the life of the boys in our community. All of our district leaders agree that program is the key that would allow you to engage the boys and keep them involved in scouting. We will plan something exciting for our Cub Scouts this December, and we would like to have all of our packs participate! Take advantage of the training our leaders are providing! Many of us had asked for proper training opportunities and now they are here every month (remember that training is also available online). If you want to get trained, now you have the opportunity, there are no excuses.  Special Thanks to our District Committee leaders that helped to organize our meet and greet for Andy Price (Scout Executive). Also, let us thank Charles Ritchie for allowing us to meet at the Kiva. We appreciate our volunteers and different troops that volunteered to help at Spookore. Thanks to Kent and Trina Simnacher, Lynn and Diane Gross and Michael Wright for helping the Quanah Parker District with the United Way Campaign in Moore County.  Thanks to them, we were able to successfully help the United Way of Moore County with their fundraising goal.

Many Thanks,

Pablo Rueda
