Crosswinds District Roundtable Meetings:
Crosswinds District Roundtables are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month, with the exception of July (summer vacation). Roundtables start at 6:30 pm with a gathering and visiting with each other for one-half hour. The actual Roundtable starts at 7:00 pm with a general information session for all attendees.

Christ the King is located next to Cary High School at the corner of Walnut Street and Tanglewood Drive. The parking lot entrance is off of Tanglewood Drive. Luther Café is on the western end of the building (left side as you come down from the parking lot). Enter through the glass doors on your left as you enter the covered walkway marked “Christ the King Pre-School”

What are the Roundtable Meetings?
The Roundtable meeting is held to disseminate information to Scout leaders and to help train Scout leaders. There is a 1/2 hour common information and announcement session at the beginning of the Roundtable for ALL Scout leaders. Then the Roundtable breaks into two or more sessions for about 1 more hour. One session is for Tiger and Cub Scout leaders and the other session is for Boy Scout, Crew, Exploring and Varsity leaders. We sometimes have special sessions for adult training, Eagle Board of Review training, Health and Safety training, etc.. We set these sessions up when we think there is a need for them or they are requested by our Scouting units.
Who should attend the Roundtable Meetings?
The Roundtable meeting is held for ALL Scouters or for any adult that is interested in becoming involved in Scouting. The sessions are sometimes attended by youth who are in OA, Senior Patrol Leaders and Patrol Leaders.
