Skyline District Roundtable
November 2, 2017 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at the Cockrell Scout Center (2225 North Loop West, Houston, 77008) 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.

Date: To Be Determined (Rescheduled due to Hurricane Harvey)
Webelos Woods is a special weekend designed for Webelos (4th and 5th graders) and their parents to experience what awaits them in Boy Scouts. Webelos Scouts will have an opportunity to visit with Boy Scouts and the troop adult leaders. Packs are hosted by area troops. The registration fee is $7 per person.
Registration is a two-step process and is completed by the leader. The Webelos Scout den leader or troop leader need to RSVP by August 15th so the event staff can plan the event. The event is being held at Camp Brosig (1893 Trenckman Road, Sealy, TX 77474). If you need information on host units, contact Frank Parent.
More Information and Registration
Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Sam Houston Area Council as a result of the annual popcorn sale. 70% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are three options to sell popcorn: traditional take order sales, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-n-sell. New for this year, units that sell over $12,000 will receive free home popcorn delivery. For more information, contact the district popcorn kernel, David Williames.
