San Jacinto District Roundtable
March 7, 2019 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Due to spring break in many school districts, roundtable will be held the first Thursday in March.
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of every month (except July) at 7:00 pm at the House of Prayer Lutheran Church (14045 Space Center Blvd, 77062) 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.

Camporee is a weekend campout for troops around the district. Patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. The event is being held at Camp Brosig - 1893 Trenckmann Rd, Sealy, TX 77474. Every troop must send a representative to the December and January roundtable to help plan the camporee. Every troop needs run a part of the camporee (e.g., competition, facilities). This year’s camporee promises to challenge the youth leadership, as well as stretching everyone else’s comfort zones. These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation. The unit leader should RSVP by January 11, 2019.

Packs are encouraged to hold spring recruiting events. For Cub Scouts, there is no better time to personally invite your kid's friends to a meeting! District and pack campouts are coming up as well as day camp, resident camp and summertime pack activities! And don’t forget about all of those potential Scouts, the kindergarteners who can join on June 1! March and April is the time to get talkin’ with the schools and ask if you can invite kids to join Scouting! Sometimes we think we can only recruit in the fall, but spring is a great time to get new Scouts and their families involved early.
Troops, crews and ships: March is the perfect month to have an open house to invite friends and other potential Scouts for the opportunity to see what your troop, crew and ship is made of. Check out some of the cool resources:
If you have questions, please contact your district membership chair or district executive.
Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. The important Scouting position you hold will be easier and more effective once you develop the skills necessary to deliver a quality Scouting program every Scout desires. Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered in the council. For more information, contact Gary Hinners.
