If I read your tag-line correct, you're from the Dallas area. Have you
considered asking if a member of the Dallas Cowboys was or is involved in
scouting? When I was in the Washington, DC area, we had a player from the
Washington Redskins (name withheld per his request) address our pack on the
virtues of scouting. Another year (and pack) we had "Big John Stud" of WWF
fame visit with us. Autographed pictures, etc. always get the little guys
excited. Most of these "community services" are free (unlike most
magicians, clowns, etc.). You might consider a local political big shot.
Heck, why not try for ROSS PEROT? Who knows, he may give away autographed
$100 bills <chuckle>.
