It’s Scout-O-Rama Time!

Scout-O-Rama Ticket Sales @ Ralph’s Grocery Store – Friday March 18, 2011 and Saturday April 2, 2011

Mark your calendars for our pack’s other annual fundraiser, selling ticket /coupon books for the Orange County Council 2011 Scout-O-Rama. Pack 811 will be selling Scout-O-Rama tickets on Friday March 18th from 1:00–5:00 and Saturday April 2 from 10:00-2:00, in front of Ralph’s grocery store on Brea Blvd and Imperial Hwy.

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 over $600 from ticket sales.

We will sell ticket books for two days only. Individual scouts have the option of either working one or more 2-hour shift in front of Ralph’s or buying 6 ticket books to resell on their own. If the scout chooses the 2-hour shift, selling additional ticket books is completely optional.

The shifts on Friday will be from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm and from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The shifts on Saturday will be from 10 am 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.  PLEASE sign up as soon as possible so we can insure adequate coverage.

Scout-O-Rama Individual Ticket Sales

If your son is interested in selling individual tickets, please contact Karyn Reed ( or 714-404-9398) to obtain tickets. There are some nice prizes offered by the Orange County Council for ticket sales. Here is a link to the prize sheet.  Ticket money is due back to me by May 1st.


This year’s Scout-O-Rama will be held at Oak Canyon Park (5305 Santiago Canyon Drive, Silverado, CA 92676) on Saturday, May 14th, between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM. 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 in going, you can purchase your admission ticket (good for entire family) when we sell them at Ralph’s or if you purchase a ticket book, it includes a family pass to the event.

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. Scouts will have the opportunity to earn belt loops and other achievements as well. Website:
