Commissions from this sale go to support the activities, advancements and programs of local units and the Orange County Council, BSA. Our pack proceeds from the ticket sales (25%) help fund our pack program in general. Last year, the pack made $517 from ticket sales.
We will sell ticket books for two days only. Individual scout ticket sales are completely optional.
Each scout will need to support one 2-hour shift selling tickets in front of Ralph’s. The shifts on both Saturdays will be from 10am to 12 noon, and from 12 to 2 pm. Each shift needs to be covered by at least 8 scouts and two adults, so we will need some parent volunteers also. At the Blue & Gold banquet, I will have a sign up sheet and start reserving time slots for sales.
Scout-O-Rama Individual Ticket Sales
If your son is interested in selling individual tickets, please contact Mike Glasgow to obtain tickets. There are some nice prizes offered by the Orange County Council for ticket sales. Your son will receive a flyer in the mail detailing the prizes. Contact me for more information. Ticket money is due back to me by May 1st.
Scout-O-Rama – May15th
This year’s Scout-O-Rama will be held at Oak Canyon Park on Saturday, May 15th, between the hours of 9 AM and 4PM. This is a very fun event that everyone in the family can enjoy and participate in. I strongly recommend going to Scout-O-Rama with either your den, or as a family. If you are interested ingoing, you can purchase your admission ticket (good for entire family) when we sell them at Ralph’s.
What is Scout-O-Rama you may ask? Scout-O-Rama is the annual trade show of Scouting in Orange County that is attended by over 30,000 people. Scouts and their families enjoy a fun-filled day of exhibits, competitions, skits and displays. Some popular events from recent years include Dutch-oven cooking demonstrations, canoe races, water rocket launches and bicycle shows. Local packs, troops, teams and crews participate in the Scout-O-Rama event displaying a booth or giving service hours. Website: http://www.ocbsa.org/site/c.khKQIWPBIoE/b.3986105/k.1BA6/ScoutORama.htm
