Well this is just great! I signon to the list, make one comment about
computers and communication and cause as avalanche of comment. Here's
another query, may there be more comments please:
I am part of our council's Jamboree committee specializing on promotion. We
are right now using the lodge camping promotions committee (boys mainly) to
units with the video from national, some pictures, and (since many of these
boys went in '89) some personal anecdotes & experiences. We are trying to
hit all the troops at Courts of Honor or other nights when parents may be
there, but can't always do this. We plan on a demonstration patrol setup at
our fall camporee (staffed by boys from '89) as well as campfire skits and
So far, we are building some enthusiasm among the potential Scouts and we
have some applications in hand. But we want to do more. Also, we need to
be able to get the word out to parents, since they will be footing much of
the cost per boy. This is harder to do, both to reach these parents and to
generate some enthusiasm in them as well. We are planning a parents 'Rally'
meeting, with maybe some testimonials from previous boys parents about how
great it was for their son.
Basically, I am looking for ANY promotion ideas that you may know of that
will help us build either or both the boy and parent sides. Thanks for your
