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.  This training will help 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 be participating in roundtable in order to deliver a stronger program for our scouts.


Every Scout Deserves a Trained Adult Leader! It is re-charter time, and if your unit has adult leaders who have not being YPT trained, they need to get trained as soon as possible in order to re-charter! Make sure you give the Golden Spread Council a call if you need help with YPT training. Time is of the essence to get all of our adults trained, so please don’t wait until the last minute. It is a small requirement to have; nevertheless, we all benefit from tips provided to us by this training.

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. 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. You can’t wait any longer so let’s get TRAINED NOW!!

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.
