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.

GET TRAINED!

Every Scout Deserves a Trained Adult Leader!

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 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 Pablo Rueda at 806-655-5800 and let him know.

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 welcome 2011 as we are looking forward to a great year in scouting with our Quanah Parker District Packs and Troops.

I would like to communicate that KC Hamill has stepped down from the Quanah Parker District Chairman position as he moves on to becoming a Vice President of Program for the Golden Spread Council. We would like to thank him for all of his help and efforts while being a District Chairman and also wish him the best of luck in his upcoming responsibilities with our Council as he continues to make a difference with our boys.

Katie Loyall, our District Commissioner has stepped down from her position during the month of December. Katie was a great asset for our district! We have all being helped by her and the unit commissioners she lead at some point. We wish Katie good luck in her future ventures and we also let her know we truly appreciate all of her efforts. She has made a difference in our boys not only in our district but in the council as a whole. Her position is vacant at the moment and will be filled when the right candidate is recruited.

I would like to thank Robert Mitchell for all of his efforts as a unit commissioner, and district activity chairman as he stepped down from his position, we wish him the best of luck and let him know that we truly appreciate him and his efforts as a district committee member in the past few years.

Moving forward,

I would like to take the opportunity to welcome our new District Committee Chairman Joni Mickna, who was already a member of our District committee as well as a commissioner during 2010. Joni is a highly trained Scout Leader, with a great commitment to lead our district to continue improving and become highly functional.

We are experiencing some change in our district committee which would always be an opportunity for improvement. We hope to have our leader collaboration on this upcoming year and look forward to continue working as a team.

We ask our leaders to take advantage of trainings as much as possible and become fully engaged in our scouting activities. A very important goal for our leaders this 2011 is to have very active packs and troops, and participate in more events. This is the reason why our boys join scouting! We want to have an impact in these boy’s lives. The more active our units become the higher the chances that we as Boy Scout leaders get to make a difference.

Many Thanks,

Pablo Rueda
