If the committee in charge of this Scout show sees nothing wrong with a
change in policy for their major fundraiser that results in a large net loss
in revenue -- assuming that Scott is not exaggerating -- then it is time for
the Council President, or the appropriate Vice President, to find some new
volunteers for this committee.
My council also charges for tickets for their Scout show and has a similar
amount of coupons. The exception was that Scouts *in uniform* got in free.
