Roundtable is the first Thursday of every month. There is a separate session for the Cub Scout Leaders and the Boy Scout Leaders. On the Cub Scout side, there is information for all leaders, including break out sessions for Committee Chairs, Cubmasters, Den Leaders and Tiger Coaches. For the Boy Scout leaders, bring your Troop committee members, Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters. The aim at Boy Scout Roundtable is to provide the will and skill "to do" in the form of training, inspiration, enthusiasm and vision. Fellowship with other Scout Leaders is a vital part of the Roundtable experience so come prepared to mix with other dedicated Scouting Volunteers. Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month at Peace Lutheran Church  and start at 7:00 PM. Peace Lutheran Church is at the corner of University Avenue and Northdale Blvd in Coon Rapids.

The Boy Scout Roundtable

WHAT is roundtable?
The aim of the Scout roundtable is to provide the will and the skill to do. If troop leaders have these two things, they can succeed, and they can continue succeeding. The will to do in the form of morale, inspiration, enthusiasm, and vision is distributed regularly (for the will to do is perishable). The skill to do in the form of skills, program ideas, techniques, and information is taught a piece at a time (for there is much to learn.) A roundtable is fun, practical, inspiring full of skills loaded with techniques brimming with program ideas.

WHO Should Attend Roundtables?
Roundtables are designed for all troop leaders, i.e., Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and troop committee members, interested parents, Webelos den leaders, and all commissioners. So welcome! Don't worry about asking questions that's what we are here for and don't forget the most important thing.....have fun.

WHEN and WHERE is Roundtable?
Roundtable meets the first Thursday of each month at Peace Lutheran Church located at Northdale Blvd. and University Ave. in Blaine, MN.  Fellowship starts at 6:30 p.m. and Roundtable itself at 7 p.m.

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different, because I was important in the life of a boy. E. Witcraft (1894 - 1967)

Unit commissioners attend the roundtables in which their leaders are involved. This may mean dividing their time between roundtables for Cub Scout and Boy Scout leaders.
