Greeting

Hello Quanah Parker District and beyond,

After a short and busy summer of MKB Summer Camp, Cub Scout Residence Camp, Sporting Clays, and on, and on, and on, we leap into Fall Recruitment.  All traditional unit Boytalks are scheduled within the month of September. Last year the talks were spread out through October, but this year I was able to fit them all into September. This makes for a crazy hectic month, but it also gets more boys into your units before the Spook-O-Ree. Why is that important? The Spook-O-Ree provides the boys that we promise in recruiting—BB Guns, Archery, etc. That’s important for keeping all the new recruits.

Quanah Parker Roundtable

The District Committee is very excited about Roundtable this year. With high attendance numbers last year we sat down and have spent a couple of months planning for an even bigger year with even more information to help your unit succeed. We have discontinued the Cub Scout, and Boy Scout Program trainer positions to have more group interaction items provided by Unit Leaders. Who better to inform each other on BEST PRACTICES than unit leaders themselves. So, on September 6th, at 7:00PM we will have our first QP Roundtable. This meeting will better explain how Roundtable will function this year, and also have signups to give presentations though out the year. Every unit has something they do really well, and that information can help other units to be the best they can. We look forward to seeing you there, and please bring your thinking caps.  

Spook-O-Ree

We are having 3 weeks (October 13, 20, 27) of Spook-O-Ree this year. This is a great opportunity for Boy Scout Troops to be visible among Cub Scouts, and also get some service hours for the boys. Boy Scout leaders contact Scott to find an area to help with (806.358.6500). As for Cub Scout Leaders this is the event to help keep your boys active, and having fun. We always promise fun, and adventure, and that’s what they expect. This is the perfect time to give them the opportunity to do what most kids never have a chance to do—BB Guns, Bows and Arrows, Relay Races, Spook Houses, and tons more Fun Stuff.

For more details on any of the above items please take a look at goldenspread.org or contact myself, Joni, or Steve, directly with the info listed above. We look forward to hearing from you.
