2015 Fall Fundraiser Sign Up

Hello Everyone!

I hope this post/email finds you all well! It is nearing that time of year again where we get to salt pretzels and squeeze lemons to earn money for our scout troop.

As you may know, this money helps the troop buy equipment, helps pay for scout camps and also helps make our normal camping trips (fees, travel, food, etc) less expensive for parents and youth.

If you have not worked with us before at one of these fundraisers, here is the gist of it all…

Adults and youth (16 or older) work concession stands for a company that we have worked with for many years selling pretzels and lemonade. At the end of the event, we make 10% of all sales made. In the past, we normally walk out with between $1,200 and $1,800 depending on the race and how many stands we run (normally between 3 and 4 stands).

We work both days of the race (Friday and Saturday) starting from around 10 or 11 in the morning until the race is over (normally around 11 or midnight). If you wish to help, you can work all day or part of a day. Please be aware that if you only work part of a day that traffic and parking is very difficult. We normally need the most help right before and during the race (4PM to Midnight).

There are 2 major changes that have happened if you did not help at the last event.

  1. Credentials are MUCH easier to get now. I pick up ALL of the credentials for our group before the event. This means you do not need to visit the credential office the day/week of the race.
  2. Youth get to help now! The minimum age has changed from 18 to 16 meaning that some of our youth can help now! YAY!

The more people we have, the more stands we can run. We normally like to put 2 people on a stand and have one or more people who “float” around relieving people at stands so they can take breaks.

If you are willing and able, please sign up early so we know how many people we have and when they can work. The company we work with normally likes to lock down rosters 3 to 4 weeks before the race so they know how many stands we need.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to serve and help raise money for our youth! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (804-496-1680).

Yours in W.W.W, Scouting and the Gospel,

John Oliver
