Texas Skies District Roundtable
December 8, 2022 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at Holy Covenant United Methodist Church (22111 Morton Ranch Rd, Katy, TX 77449) 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.

Outdoor Leader Training
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 Aaron Sobel.

Fourth-grade Webelos Scouts will have the opportunity to visit the archery range and work on various Webelos Scout and Arrow of Light Adventures. Fifth-grade Webelos Scouts will have the opportunity to visit the BB gun range and work on various Scouting skills directly from the Scouts BSA Handbook.
There will be Arrow of Light Ceremony teams on-hand Saturday to conduct crossover ceremonies for the 5th grade Webelos Scouts who have earned the Arrow of Light rank. Packs and troops may camp the entire weekend and arrive Friday night and depart Saturday morning. All activities are led by Texas Skies District troops. The event is being held at Bovay Scout Ranch (3450 County Road 317, Navasota, TX 77868).
