Brand-New Recruiting Materials

Last fall, Chisholm Trail District set a Fall recruitment record, using some new methods and strategies. At this month’s Thunderbird Roundtable, Bob Rauner came and shared everything they did. The material is quite good, and should provide us with a foundation for renewed success in recruitment:

April Roundtable Materials

We had a truly unique meeting at the monthly Thunderbird Roundtable this month.  I presented an update to online training, and Mike made sure everyone was up-to-speed on the cancellation of the BSA Tour Permit process.

We kicked-off our “Duty To God” series by inviting clergy from a variety of faiths in the community, to come and talk about their beliefs and the connection to Scouting.  Tonight we heard about the Sikh faith from Christ-Singh Khalsa.

We also had Bob Rauner from Chisholm Trail District, give us a fantastic overview of their successful recruiting techniques (There will be a separate post with links to all of the amazing materials he presented):

November 2016 Roundtable Materials

Our 3rd Annual Dutch Oven Tasting event was held at the Thunderbird Roundtable.  Big “thanks” to Troop 93 who graciously provided some of the tastiest Dutch Oven dishes (and recipes) for everyone there.  We also had a presentation on handling Scouts with unique dietary requirements, and food safety issues. Thanks to all for making this another fantastic Roundtable meeting.

Sept 2016 Roundtable Materials

Thanks to everyone who attended our September Roundtable meeting.  We had a great break-out session on Rechartering, and a fantastic discussion on creating a Den Chief program for your Pack and Troop.  In addition, we talked about staffing opportunities for next year’s National Jamboree.

As promised, here are the materials presented last night (PDF format):




April 2016 Roundtable Materials

Thanks to everyone who came to our April Roundtable meeting.  We had a really fun discussion of great places to camp, in Texas – for all of the Scouting programs.  We also enjoyed some interactive games for Boy Scouts.  For Cub Scouts, we built some terrific styrofoam paper plate airplanes (see instructions, below) – these can also be used for the Aviation Merit Badge.  We also talked about the District Pinewood Derby proposal.
