Thanks to those that came out to our January Roundtable meeting. We had a great presentation on unit retention, and talked about participation in the upcoming “Report To State” Parade.
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.
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):
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.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our March Roundtable meeting. We had a diverse set of topics, and several good discussions. As promised, here are the materials presented at the meeting:

Thanks to all who joined us for the January 2016 Roundtable meeting! We enjoyed an evening of fun, and lots of information.

December’s Thunderbird Roundtable was full of great information – both from the presentations, as well as the shared experiences of Scouting leaders across the District. We talked about how NOT to cancel a campout, due to weather. We discovered how easy it is to introduce your unit to the Cyberchip Badge. We talked about the upcoming changes to the Boy Scout program requirements for 2016, and we found out how to run a great Pinewood Derby.
As promised, here are all the presentations and hand-outs from the meeting:
