Thunder Wolf District Roundtable
December 13, 2018 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm (except June and July) at the First United Methodist Church of Missouri City (3900 Lexington Blvd, Missouri City, TX 77459 ) 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. Follow us on our new Facebook page.
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.
The Internet Recharter (IR) site is open, but there's a lot units can be working on right now to make the recharter process go smooth.
1. Prepare and plan ahead to get recharter done early, as this time of the year is typically very busy. It takes time to gather information and collect fees and signatures.
- Review recharter resources
- Contact your unit commissioner or district commissioner for assistance. Norma Gonzales will be the turn-in point for recharters.

February 15-17, 2019
Camporee is a weekend campout designed to give new Scouts in troops as well as seasoned Scouts an opportunity to experience the traditional values of scouting as well as enjoy a challenge. Patrols compete in various competitions all based on Leave No Trace principles and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. They will complete the Leave No Trace 101 course. The evening program on Saturday will be a callout for Scouts elected into the Order of the Arrow, as well as a Brotherhood ceremony for those Brotherhood eligible Arrowmen. The event is being held at Camp Mauritz (4665 County Road 256, Ganando, TX, 77957).
Every troop must send a representative to the 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.
Registration is completed by the troop leadership. The troop leadership needs to RSVP with an approximate head count for planning purposes by January roundtable. Please let us know if this number changes significantly before the event as campsite assignments are made based on registration numbers. Every troop is expected to help at the camporee (e.g., run an activity or demonstration, emcee the campfire, Scouts Own Service, logistics, administration, registration).

Life to Eagle Scout
After a Boy Scout has completed the requirements for any rank, they appear before a board of review. Its purpose is to determine the quality of their experience and decide whether he has fulfilled the requirements for the rank.
Eagle Scout Boards of Review: At least one district or council representative must serve as a member of an Eagle Scout board of review. Find out more about how to request a district representative for an Eagle Scout Board of Review on our advancement page.
Eagle Scout Service Project: While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community.
