Greetings

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. 

Camp Card Pass Out

On March 17th, 10:00AM at the Scout Service Center (401 Tascosa Rd) we will be passing out Camp Cards. You can begin selling immediately—-so, don’t wait!! This is a great fundraiser and has the potential to be one of the biggest yet. I am proud to say that we doubled the number of QP Units that are participating this year. Wow!! The balance due for all sold cards will be due at the Council Camporee on April 28th. Have a great time, and remember to follow up each week at your meetings to celebrate the number of cards sold, and to remind them to sell even more.

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 Pinewood Derby

On March 24th, 12:00PM-4:00PM at the Kwahadi Kiva we will be having the annual Quanah Parker Pinewood Derby. Race Entrance Fee’s are $1 plus a can of food. The High Plains Food Bank will be on hand to celebrate Scouting for Food day, and receive all of the cans donated at the race. Car weigh-in will begin at 12:00PM, and races will begin at 1:00PM. We will have a Cub Scout only division, a family division, and a Scout Leader Division. There will also be lots of ribbons for coolest car, craziest car, etc. This is a day not to miss. Not only do we have a great time with racing fellowship, but we get to help out the less fortunate with the High Plains Food Bank. See you there!!

HERE’S TO A GREAT YEAR!!
