It constantly amazes me that with the resources available to district
scouters that so many of them are not familiar with them.
Page 51 of "Leadership Training, Plans, Procedures, Materials" Supply
#34169, 1993 printing, shows a pocket card for Roundtable/Staff. This is
a Progress Record fot the Scouter's Training Award/Arrowhead Honor. To

2. Conduct a preopening activity and an opening ceremony.
3. Conduct or be responsible fo a major project, presentation, or
demonstration at one roundtable or huddle.
4. Participate in six roundtable/huddle staff meetings.
5. Activly assist in six roundtables/huddles.
6. Conduct a successful roundtable/huddle attendance promotion project.
To earn the Training Award the following is required:
1. Earn the Arrowhead Honor.
2. Review with the RT Commissioner orientation material in the current RT
planning guide applicable to your RT (CS, BS, EXP)
3. Rewiew all material in the current CS Program Helps, Woods Wisdom, or

For those who choose to continue to cite my lack of appropriat rescoure
names and numbers, I usually don't carry my scouting resources to work,
nor do I try to memorize all the names and numbers that are associated
withsuch resources. I apologize for not waiting for a day or two until I
could get all that information together and present it in a more organized
manner. I have now given page number, BSA number and name of my source.
