Phoenix District Roundtable
December 6, 2018 | 7:00 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month at Klein LDS Center (16535 Kleinwood Dr, Spring, 77379) 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 upcoming events and trainings, 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 our Facebook page.

Webelos Woods is a campout designed to introduce 4th and 5th grade Webelos to the many outdoor adventures of Boy Scouting. This awesome weekend event includes patrol-method camping and Scout activities. Webelos will have an opportunity to:
- Work with Boy Scout troops in a number of skills, activities, and games.
- Experience a Boy Scout campfire program and Scout’s Own Service (non-denominational)
- Have fun and get a taste of Boy Scout camping.
On Saturday morning, Webelos patrols compete in Webelos skills (first aid, fire building, camping skills, games, knots) and during the afternoon local Boy Scout troops teach basic Boy Scout skills. The patrols are judged on patrol flag and yell, resources, leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. The evening will finish off with an entertaining campfire program. After the campfire troops, crews and ships will host a cracker barrel where Webelos and their parent/guardian can tour their campsites and ask questions. The event is being held at Spring Creek Park (15012 Brown Road, Tomball, TX 77375). Pre-registered Webelos Scouts will receive an event patch and water bottle; registration includes activities supplies. Late registration is $21.50 and begins 12/5/18; patches and water bottles are not guaranteed. Onsite registration is $26.50. Registration is typically completed by the den or unit leader.

Every year, all units (packs, troops, crews, ships) are required to renew their affiliation with Scouting. The BSA issues charters to community organizations to enable them to use the Scouting program under their own leadership as a service to their children, youth, and families. Re-chartering is the process of renewing the charter agreement between the BSA and the organization and renewing the registration of youth and adult members.
Rechartering on time is critical. It is required for Journey to Excellence. It is required for units to continue registration without interruption. It is required to ensure Scouts are registered, critical for receiving rank advancement and other awards, and for insurance coverage.
Recharter Turn-in Opportunities:
- 12/6 Thursday; Roundtable Breakout at Kleinwood LDS; 7:15 – 8:30
- 12/12 Wednesday; Recharter Turn-in at Zaxby’s (8103 Louetta) - 6:30 – 8:00

Pushmobile is a relay race using simple, homemade, Cub Scout-powered cars. Cub Scout dens make their own pushmobile. Four to eight youth work together as a team to push their pushmobile through the course to the finish line. The purpose of this event is to have fun, promote participation in a team effort, and to provide an activity where "doing your best" is most important. Trophies are presented to the top three teams per rank and to the top three packs. The event is being held at Lone Star College (30555 Tomball Pkwy, Tomball, TX 77375). Teams are formed by Scout rank (1st - 5th grade), often organized by dens. Teams need to be a minimum of four Scouts. The ideal team size is eight Scouts. Teams with less than eight Scouts may add Scouts from other ranks (as long as they are a lower grade) or packs. Every Scout will receive a patch. Registration is $8 per Scout. Late registration is $10 per Scout beginning 2/7/2019. Onsite registration is $10.
