Greeting

Hello, I’m Chase Roach the District Executive for the Quanah Parker District. 2011 was a great year for Scouting, and 2012 is shaping up to be even better. For more details on any of the about items please take a look at goldenspread.org or contact me directly with the info listed above. I look forward to hearing from you.  

BB Gun Shoot Out!!

January marked the first annual BB Gun shoot out. We had several hundred Cub Scouts that participated. It was great! What a great response and already shopping for new locations to host an even larger event. Fun was had by all with training seminars and then shooting in the standing position, prone position, and sitting or kneeling position.

Now we need to send out a Big Ol’ “WAY TO GO”, for one of Quanah Parkers own, Kagen M. from Pack 39 in Dumas. He won 3rd Place over-all. WOW!! Keep up the good shooting Pack 39!!

FOS

Great job to all who participate in funding local scouting with Friends of Scouting Campaigns. Funding for Scoutreach programs, and camps is needed more than ever this year. Please contact me directly to setup an FOS Presentation at your Blue and Gold Banquet or Court of Honor. Thank you again!

Quanah Parker District Awards Banquet

On January 20th at ChristianHeritage Church in Amarillo, we had a grand time fellowshipping, giving awards, being entertained by Wayne Benson with Cowboy Poetry, and recognizing some young men for Life Rank and Eagle rank!

We want to send out a special thanks to Andy Price and Bob Altman for being present at our banquet. The turn out was more than double the attendance from last year, and we’re planning on doubling again next year.

Thanks to ALL of you that were able to attend the banquet! The food was good! Thanks to Rosa’s!
