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

As it becomes a busy time of the year for all of our Packs in Quanah Parker.  Everyone starts planning their Blue and Gold Banquets as well as their Pinewood Derby events. I encourage all leaders to prepare a calendar of events for your unit, whether you lead a pack or a troop.  It definitely gives you an advantage to plan with a calendar letting your boys know when the different unit activities are going to take place. This allows the boys to look forward to the different activities your unit offers throughout the year, and encourages them to continue attending your meetings.

We are currently offering all units the opportunity for a new fundraiser!  We call this fundraiser “The Camp Card” which will give all units the opportunity to sell cards with different business promotions from businesses council wide. This fundraiser will allow your boys to earn much needed moneys for camp or other activities. We will be contacting you to give you the opportunity to participate in the fundraiser. Please contact Pablo Rueda at the council office for more information.

We would like to welcome Jason Dunham as our District Activity and Program Chairman.  Jason is an experienced Boy Scout Leader eager to put his experience and enthusiasm on the table in order to plan and promote different activities and programs for our district.

Thanks to all the volunteers who support our cause, and have stepped up to help our district committee continue to be functional. Special thanks to; Joni Mickna and Doris Williams.
