Council Meeting Quick Notes

Our final council meeting of the year was hosted by Anaheim CRC on Thursday, April 30th.  It was a good meeting and we had a great time with our fellow counselors.  Two workshops were held.  Ever wonder what your boys think about your club nights, and Cadets in general?  The first workshop, led by Bernie Gabrielse, was titled “Cadetting from the Cadet’s View”.  Great discussions and insight.  Craig Doty led a special edition of his annual Counselor Certification workshop for men from Emmanuel RC.  Glad to see them!  The 2015-2016 Southern California Council Schedule was set.  Pinewood Derby was discussed and some helpful hints gained to make next year’s event even better!

Our summery council meeting will be hosted by 1st URC of Chino on 27 August 2015. Business meeting will follow two workshops; so plan on attending.  For the map and directions to Chino 1 (1st URC of Chino), click on their club page.

  1. Nice work with the new website Ruben and gang!
    Bethany Bellflower is starting a Jr. Cadet program next year.
    Any suggestions?( from trials and errors you may have made with your Jr. boys)
    Thanks

  2. Jim,

    One thing is to have plenty of “hands on” help for whatever project you are leading the young ones in. Have plenty of supplies and be patient! these little ones are just not as skilled yet and it takes a while to get it right, whatever they are attempting to do. The Jr. Cadet program is pretty good and contains some good stuff to use.

  4. Our GEMS group is also going to start a 1st and 2nd grade program. Some of the “moms” want to make our start time 6:30 rather than 7 considering younger kids and bedtime? Does anyone start earlier than 7? We go from 7 to 8:30 now;leaders usually home by 9.

  5. For the longest time at New Life we did 7-8:30, but as our crowd trends younger, we did get some desire for earlier bedtimes. So our current “schedule” is weird; landmarks at 7, cadet hymn & dismissal at 8:15, but the church is open 6:30-9:00 for cadets that want to be there earlier or later to play dodgeball in our fellowship hall.

  6. Definitely with a younger crowd it is better to start earlier. However at Bayview we begin at 6:45 for two reasons: (1) we only meet twice a month so having a longer meeting time allows us to get activities and BIble lessons in without feeling rushed; and (2) we advertise 6:45pm but that first 15 minutes is really for counselors to get organized and discuss before the main group of boys arrive about 7pm.
