I'm a Cubmaster in the FSK District of the National Capital Area Council
(Frederick County, MD) and for the last three years have also been a member
of the Cub Scout Roundtable Staff. We try to limit our meetings to 60
minutes, 90 minutes max. We start each meeting with a jointly with the Boy
Scout Roundtable group and pass on any announcements of interest to both
groups. We then split into seperate meetings fro the remainder of the
evening. Aproximately one third of each meeting is taken up by the joint
and CS-specific annoucements. Most of the announcements deal with District
and Council activities; not just fund raisers, but Camporees, Webelos Woods,
Pow Wow, etc. Except for when there is a major policy change (or
clarification), it is rare that we have any announcements on the national
level. Our only sources of national information are our DE, Scouting
Magazine, Boy's Life, and Internet.
For the remainder of the evening, we concentrate on ideas and hands-on
activities related to the themes for the upcoming month. Quite often, we
have seperate break-out sessions for Den Leaders, Cubmasters, and Committee
memners, so that we can concentrate of subjects of particular interest to
We do the best we can, with what we have.
