d) The committee has arranged for four slots with Roche Bros and Shaws to handout flyers and tickets. Scouts are expected to participate to help get the word out. We will look for an adult to be with them too. Jake Ryan will also be coordinating shift signups.
e) There will be a committee meeting September 22nd, and if necessary follow up meetings October 6th, and October 20th as we finalize the work to be completed. We will be looking for help on the Friday night before and of course lots jobs to fill on the big day.
f) This Monday, Scouts will be handed 10 tickets with which to sell. The Scouts have voted to award the Scout who sells the most with a $25 gift card to Bass Pro Shop, and most importantly a Camping-Duty-Roster-Immunity-Idol. Don't worry - we've got more tickets to sell. Please do what you can to encourage sales, as without this.. there is no fundraiser! Tell your friends, neighbors, family members, etc.
g) For your information, when selling a ticket please circle the $5 per Person or $20 per Family (up to 6) depending on which the buyer selected.
