Sporting Clays Thank You Note  NEW

On behalf of the 2013 Sporting Clays Committee I want to say a Heartfelt Thank You to all 225+Scouts and Scouters, Parents and all others who most graciously volunteered their time on August 23 and 24 in order to make the 2013 Golden Spread Council Sporting Clays Classic a huge success.  By all measures this was the best tournament ever!  All 262 shooters who participated in this year’s event had a safe and fun time in large part because of YOU!  Please know that all proceeds from this event are used to benefit all the scout programs that the Council provides.

From: Bob Altman- Staff Advisor

Camp Don Dining Hall Blog 

As you all know, we are building a new Dining Hall.  To keep you abreast on what’s going on, we have created a “Blog” for you to visit periodically.  We will update you on construction and have pictures so you can see the progress being made.  Take a look at the blog today.

Injury Reporting 

Unit-level volunteers must report to the council any incident that requires treatment beyond Scout rendered first aid.  If, say, a cut finger or a twisted ankle is treated on site, no report is needed.  If a cut finger requires a visit to the doctor and stitches, the report must be submitted along with any relevent photographs, doctors’ forms etc.  The incident form is located at the link below or on our web site in the forms (safety) section.

Membership Fee Increase   NEW

At the Program Preview’s, we mentioned that there was a rumor that the membership fee may increase on Janaury 1, 2014 and that you should prepare for this possibility.  We wanted to be upfront with you as we thought it may happen as well.

At a meeting of top Scouting executives in Washington D.C. it was announced that the National registration fee will be increased to $24 annually starting 1/1/2014. This fee impacts all units rechartering 1/1/2014With the additional $1.00 Insurance fee, the total cost will be $25.00 and that must be collected from each rechartering member.

With this information, you should adjust your unit’s budget accordingly.

  • The Golden Spread Council passes 100% of the registration fee to the National Council, Boy Scouts of America.

We wanted to share this news as soon as we received it so you can plan accordingly.

Eagle Scout Scholarships  NEW

Being an Eagle Scout pays off, in some cases literally. The National Eagle Scout Association offers scholarships for Eagles entering college, a big help for families as tuitions continue to rise at
universities nationwide. Graduating high schoolers can apply for 2014 NESA Scholarship beginning Oct. 1, 2013, with a submission deadline of Dec. 31, 2013.

Scholarship Information

Troop Leader Guidebook to replace Scoutmaster Handbook   NEW

Photo: Goodbye Scoutmaster Handbook, hello Troop Leader Guidebook! Vol. 1 is for new troop leaders, while Vol. 2 has fresh ideas for veterans. Get a sneak peek here: http://bit.ly/16oSxzU

If you judge the Scoutmaster Handbook by its cover, you might
assume it’s solely meant for, well, Scoutmasters. Assistant Scoutmasters, it
seemed, were to look elsewhere for Scouting wisdom. That’s about to
change. Later this year, the two-volume Troop Leader Guidebook will
debut, replacing the Scoutmaster Handbook and offering
helpful checklists, quick tips and fresh ideas for both new troop leaders and
veteran Scouters.

The new school year is upon us and it’s time for lots of great meetings in Quanah Parker Units and also District Committee and Roundtable. Thanks to everyone that helped and attended all of the meetings last year. All participants left with lots of great ideas to spawn into action. The number one thing to remember as a Volunteer Scout Leader—Kids vote with their feet… If they are enjoying a great program they will be more active. If attendance drops it’s important to re-evaluate your program. Kids want to have fun and advance in rank.

See you at Roundtable and lets have a GREAT year!

Your next steps is to sign up for a Popcorn Kickoff. Visit www.goldenspread.org and click the “2013 Popcorn Kickoff and Training” online registration link. Choice dates for the Amarillo are…

1) September 7, 2013–10am St Thomas Catholic Church and

2) September 12, 2013–7pm Scout Service Center.

Note: Only 1 kickoff need be attended.

In order to maximize your unit’s commission, be prepared by bringing a copy of your Calendar and Annual Budget to the Popcorn Kickoff. Even the simplest documents will help earn your unit 2% more commission!

In order to deliver an AWESOME program that keeps ‘em coming back for more, you need to have $$ in the bank so all the activities that the kiddo’s love can be included on your calendar.

Popcorn is an excellent way to provide that awesome program. Trails End Popcorn has revamped their flavor selection for the 2013 year and the new choices ROCK!! Featuring Buffalo, Bacon Cheddar and Jalepeno Cheddar!! YUM!!   Not only is the Popcorn really tasty, it helps PAY FOR YOUR SCOUTING YEAR!!  …That’s right! If the sale is executed correctly, you can easily fund your pack/troop’s “Ideal Year of Scouting”. In order to be overwhelming successful, your unit NEEDS TO ATTEND A POPCORN KICKOFF!  Don’t wait, sign up today!

Friends of Scouting

            2014 is around the corner and as proactive Scouts we are already looking and planning into the 2014 year. While 2013 has been very successful pertaining to fundraising it only helps us one year at a time. In order to provide awesome summer program and other Council activities we need to start securing the funds to continue operations for the 2014 year. Your Unit (pack/troop) plays a vital role in the success of our council. Through Family Enrollment presentations conducted your Blue&Gold’s and Courts of Honor, our council is able to allocate those desperately needed resources which are critical to our council’s survival. We can’t do it without your help. As you complete your annual planning and Unit Annual Calendar, be sure to include when you will hold these recognition events and share those dates with your District Executive so that presentations can be scheduled. The Family Enrollment presentation is quick, less than 5minutes long and will not take away from magic that our youth experience through the joy of recognition for their accomplishments.

In order to keep Scouting alive and well, your help is needed to get your units (pack/troop) Family Friends of Scouting presentation scheduled and completed. Thank you in advance for your attention to this very important aspect of Scouting.

September Calendar:

September 10 – POP CORN KICK OFF (PAMPA)

Popcorn Kickoff 2013

September 10 is the popcorn kick off meeting, and we are excited about it this year.  It will be at the Pampa Chamber of Commerce.  I hope all units will commit to popcorn and give each boy the chance to earn money for the unit even if others in your unit do not wish to participate.  Popcorn is the best fundraiser we have and can provide your unit with 100% of its financial support for the upcoming year.  Each unit will need their calendar and budget to turn in at the kickoff for commission credit.

Monthly Newsletter Submissions

As you may know, each month we put out a newsletter to help keep everyone informed of the happening around the Adobe Walls District.  If anyone wishes to have something put in this newsletter please email me.  The entry needs to be a paragraph and the content needs to be scouting related and info you want to get to Adobe Walls readers.  I must have your submission 10 days prior to the beginning of the month.

Fall Recruitments

On August 27, we rolled out the 2013 Fall Recruitment in our district.  I will be contacting each unit to schedule the round-up events. Let’s all work together and grow scouting this fall!
