Thunder Wolf District Roundtable
July 13, 2017 | 7:30 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable will be held in July.
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) 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.
Merit Badge Day
August 12, 2017
The Merit Badge Day is an opportunity for Boy Scouts or Venturers, of any rank, to work on merit badge requirements. These are not giveaway merit badges, and this is not a merit badge factory. Each Scout is expected to prepare ahead of time (by reading the merit badge book and completing prerequisites), and to participate fully during the course in order to receive credit for the requirements completed. All Scouts are required to bring signed blue cards in order to work on merit badges. A Life to Eagle Scout presentation will be held at lunch for interested Life Star Scouts and their parents. There is no cost to attend this presentation. Adult participation is required to offer this event. Every unit is expected to provide at least one volunteer for every six Scouts attending. The event is going to be held at Christ Church (3300 Austin Parkway, Sugar Land 77479) from 8:00 - 5:00 pm. The cost to register is $11.50 for the first Scout and $10 for each additional Scout. Lunch is included.

The district committee meeting is an opportunity to be informed and help out with providing the Scouting program to the youth in our district.

The committee is entirely volunteer-based. At least one member from each unit (pack, troop, team, crew) is invited to attend. The committee meets the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at the First United Methodist Church of Missouri City (3900 Lexington Blvd).

District calendar for June 2017 to July 2018
A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders.

After a Boy Scout has completed the requirements for any rank, he appears before a board of review. Its purpose is to determine the quality of his experience and decide whether he has fulfilled the requirements for the rank.
