SET UP CHAIRS—This assignment would involve setting up about 120-150 chairs in the cultural hall. We would need these set up by about 6:30-6:40, before people arrive.
OPENING CEREMONY AND PRAYER
Opening prayer: May be done according to person’s own beliefs. A Scout is reverent and respects all manner of prayer and belief in God.
Opening Ceremony (could be a flag ceremony; reciting promises, oath, law; or creating another type of inspirational opening ceremony.) The Roundtable Planning Guide says: “Opening includes the welcome, flag ceremony, introductions, and recognitions, with a brief ceremony that a leader can use at a Pack, Troop, team, or Venturing meeting.
SONG OR SPARKLER DURING OPENING CEREMONY: We would need people to provide the following:
Provide a Song/Skit/Run-on or similar. The Roundtable Planning Guide says the following: “Song/Skit/Run-on. This is a fast break in programming that a leader can use around the campfire or on a troop outing. These meeting sparklers add zip to the trail and lift everyone’s morale.”
VENTURE BREAKOUT HELP: Under the direction of the Venture Forum commissioner, these people would present part of the program feature for the Venture leaders.
VARSITY BREAKOUT HELP: Under the direction of the Varsity Roundtable Commissioner, these people would present part of the program feature for the Varsity leaders.
SCOUT BREAKOUT HELP: Under the direction of the Boy Scout Roundtable Commissioner, these people would present part of the program feature for the Scout leaders and Committees .
SONG AND PRAYER FOR CUB SCOUT CLOSING: Under the direction of the Cub Scout Roundtable commissioner, these people would provide a CLOSING song and a PRAYER for the Cub Scout Closing ceremony (last 15 minutes of roundtable). It would be great to involve your stake primary in making this assignment!
PROVIDE CRACKER BARREL: This is an opportunity for leaders attending to ask questions, visit, and share ideas. This could be something very simple, such as cheese/crackers, fruit, cookies, cake, nuts, vegetable trays, chips, etc. It would need to serve about 125 people. Bring it to the Cultural Hall where announcement tables are set, and the Roundtable staff will divide it and take it to the various break out sessions.
