Texas Skies District Roundtable
September 13, 2018 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at the LDS Church-Katy Stake Center (1603 Norwalk Dr, Katy, 77450) at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on events and training opportunities, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts. Follow us on Facebook.
October 19-21, 2018
Cuboree is a fun, exciting weekend event for Cub Scouts (kindergarten through 5th grade) and their families to kick off the Scouting year. This includes Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos Scouts. Scouts and their families can camp on Friday and Saturday nights with their pack or just attend the Saturday activities.
This year’s theme is Wild West Days, and each den will travel to different towns to try their skill at frontier activities. Events include Water Brigade, Gold Nugget Tossing, Paul Bunyan Hammer Relay, Taos Corn Cob Toss and many others.
Dens will compete in Scout skills and games. Dens will be graded on their Scout skills, spirit, gamesmanship and on the items to be brought. The event is being held at Long Acres Ranch (101-107 Cir 7 Dr, Richmond, TX 77469). The registration fee is $20 per Scout and includes program supplies, camping fees, and a patch. Registration closes October 12, 2018. Registration is limited to 300 Cub Scouts.

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional training courses offered around the council. For more information, contact James Yaklin. The trainings will be held at Holy Covenant Methodist Church (22111 Morton Ranch Rd., Katy, Texas 77449).

Annual Planning: A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders.
