  • Last nights cake auction

    Well its over. Lol. Out of 68 Scouts and 10 Dens we had 30 Scouts and 7 Dens attend the cake auction/pack meeting. The 3 Dens that didnt attend oddly enough didnt have any awards for this month. The turn out was disappointing but we raised $1650 with 26 cakes! Last year we raised $1025. So I am very happy with how it all turned out. Looks like we can get new Pack T-Shirts and flat top camp griddle now. We are also selling camp cards. Of 68 kids 8 are selling them. 2 of which are my boys. How do I get people involved? We even offered to refund any dues paid if they sold that amount in camp cards. Does anyone have any tips?

    Well, you may only have 4 dens. Call those three DL's and ask them what's happening with them.

      No tips. The only thing I can suggest is to do everything with a smile and a friendly hand shake. People get weird once money is on the table. Build up your positive relationship reserve so that when you discuss money everyone stays happy.
