Iron Horse District Roundtable
November 14, 2019
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at the Bammel Church of Christ (2700 Cypress Creek Pkwy, Houston, TX 77068) 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 policy, events, and training opportunities; 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.

Webelos Woods is a camp out designed to introduce Webelos Scouts to the many outdoor adventures of Scouting. This awesome weekend event includes patrol-method camping and Scout activities. On Saturday morning, Webelos dens compete in Webelos Scout skills (first aid, fire building, camping skills, archery, BB guns, catapult building, games, knots) and during the afternoon local troops teach basic Scouting skills. The Webelos dens are judged on den flag and yell, resources, leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. The event is being held at Tellepsen Scout Camp (3450 County Road 317, Navasota, TX 77868).

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional training classes offered around the council. For more information, contact Randy Bell.
