The Next Cub Scout Roundtable – October 3rd
AT THE RANDOLPH MIDDLE SCHOOL

The aim of Cub Roundtables is to make your Cub Scout Leader job easier and MORE FUN!  Each month we offer general information on local activities and National BSA news, followed by specific items for the following month’s National BSA Pack Meeting Theme, to help you with your upcoming Pack and Den Meetings.

The October Cub Scout Roundtable will run from 8:00 until 9:30.

  • 8:00-8:30 will be a general session for Cub Scout and Boy Scout Leaders, and will include announcements and other info on the upcoming 2017-18 District and Council Events!  Handouts will be available to take back to your Pack.
  • 8:30-9:30 will be a session for Cub Scout Leaders only. (Boy Scout Leaders have their own session.)
  • Featured will be the National BSA Pack Meeting Theme for November: “Cubs Give Thanks.”  We’ll be offering games, a craft, songs, ceremonies, FUN, and information to use in your Den and Pack Meetings during October and beyond.
  • Additionally, there will be 4 separate (12 minute) breakout sessions
      • Cubmaster and Assistant Cubmasters
      • Den Leaders and Assistant Den Leaders
      • Webelos/AOL Leaders and Assistants
      • Committee Chairs and Members

In all 4 of these breakouts, our discussion topic will be “Parent Participation.”  We’ll have handouts and everyone will have an opportunity to ask questions and offer their suggestions on the topic!

For reference, the 2017-18 Monthly Scout Law Points and Pack Meeting Themes are listed below.  Pack Meeting Plans may be found at the link.  Each month, our Roundtable will provide you with additional FUN materials for the following month’s theme; e.g. in October we’ll present the November theme materials so you have time to include them in your November Den and Pack Meetings.
