Roundtable Publication Questions

My questions to my friends on the list are these: Does your Cub Scout
Roundtable give attendees a publication that has ideas for the themes for
the following month? If it does, approximately how many pages is it and
WHO prints it?
If the printing is done outside of council office, who does it and who pays
for the printing?
The reason that I ask these questions is that tonight I was informed that
due to budget cuts our publication, called the Link, will no longer be
printed by our council office. This is a concern to me because my
roundtable is set up with split sessions that have at least 2 pages of
information for each session (Den Leaders, Webelos Leaders, and Pack
Administration) and it also has the opening, icebreaker/skit/or game,
songs, example ceremony, closing, etc...
The Link usually comes out to 12 - 16 pages (6-8 sheets double-sided) and
we feel that it is too valuable of a tool for the leaders to see it just
terminated. I must now seek other resources to find an inexpensive
Any ideas? What does YOUR district Cub Roundtable do? How do they do it?
I understand that due to the strained economy and the reduced funding
(United Way, etc...) that they are responding to the "belt tightening" by
cutting out these things, but I still feel a deep responsibility to the
leaders that attend to give them something that they can take to their
units and use as a valuable resource.
One of the things that I intend doing is to contact soe of the local
photocopying companies and see if they will do at least some of the copying
for advertising credits in the Link itself.
