Volunteers Needed for Roundtable:  To We need a volunteer who would be willing to put together and demonstrate the Gathering Activity and Audience Participation Activity for the PM roundtables.   The routine is that Jennie will email you with the ideas two weeks before the roundtables to give you time to put them together and then you would explain the activities during the main meeting at the roundtables.  (This would be a great Wood Badge ticket item!!)

What does this mean to you as Pack Leaders?  It means that the Districts in the Grand Canyon Council are being realigned to better meet everyone's needs.  So for the next 2 - 3 months they have a lot of paper work to do at Council transferring the records of all the Cub Scout and Boy Scout getting them in the right districts. They ask for you patience in this matter. 
What about roundtable?  The San Tan Cub Scout Roundtable will continue through May. Everyone is encouraged to come like normal.  When we know, we will let you know how each new district will go forward with their roundtables and where they will be.

Rules of the Competition

Scout Law Memorization Technique - This was shared at Roundtable and I thought it was worth posting on the blog even though I do not remember all the actions that were taught us.
A Scout is:
Trustworthy - Salute (I am not sure on this one)
Loyal - Hand over Heart (I am not sure on this one)
Helpful - pretend to wash some dishes
Friendly - Wave hand
Courteous - Pretend to open a door for someone
Kind - Pretend to pet a cat
Obedient - March like a soldier
Cheerful - Smile and wave
Thrifty - Pretend you are working with money
Brave - Put your hand up to forehead to shade your eyes, like you are scouting ahead for something, bravely going into the unknown.

Clean - Pretend to wash your hands
Reverent - Fold your arms
