I just got back from speaking with Cory McKee at the Scout Office and she
informed of something that the Troops in Denver are not taking advantage of and
wanted me to spread the word!!!!
Bass Pro Shop in Denver (at the old Stapleton) is VERY pro SCOUTS!!!!
He has offered to us the opportunity to sell just about anything in front
of the store. They also have opportunities that they supply all the equipment
and sometimes even the hot dogs, and have a troop out there selling hot dogs and
such on the weekends and the Troop keeps the profit!!! This includes, popcorn,
scout show tickets, any other fundraising item you may have etc. He WANTS scouts
in front of the store, often, to help them with fundraising as well as keep them
in the public eye.
If your troop sells anything unique or wants to take him up on his offer
and sell hot dogs or snacks or whatever, give Bob a call.
The contact is Bob Hix-Bass Pro Shop, Denver
His cell number is 720-385-3600.
I realize this is a hike for us, but just so you are aware, apparently a
girls softball league went ONE Saturday and made $2000!!!
Please pass this on Commissioners, I just did!!!
For my units, you are the FIRST to hear of this!!!! (hint hint) Let's start
to help you make some money before CAMP this summer!!!!
Yours In Scouting,
Assistant District Commissioner
