I absolutely love this idea! Thank you!

Whoops, resurrected again.

Resurrected, indeed.   Our three local Districts last month held our joint "Program Launch", again.  This time, at least 75 vendors, first aid demos,  Coast Guard Auxiliary demos,  our "program" program listed over 100 possibilities for the Scout Unit (not everybody could attend, but we collected their info).  Campgrounds, museums, High Adventure places, Jamborees,  fun stuff,  official Scout stuff,  and a chance to pick up your units new program year info packet and press the flesh of fellow Scouters.  It was in a smaller indoor venue than we had last year, but it had a large outdoor court to spill into.  

The hard part is finding a venue half way central to our county, and FREE, because we ain't got no budget.  It was fairly easy to work the three District honchos together after everyone realized the benefits of not having three separate P/L's . 

Once again,  proof of our maxim that "The Work Is Done By Who ever Shows Up."
