We still have Scout Shows, usually quite large and fill up our civic center.
Last year we went from $1.00 tickets to $2.00 tickets. Many of us were very
upset with the $1.00 increase. We would like to keep the tickets affordable
for families to attend together. $4.00 seems out of sight and not affordable
as a family outing. This, IMOHO, would prevent a lot of boys being exposed
to scouting because the family didn't want to spend, or couldn't afford to
spend $4.00 a ticket.
Our $2.00 tickets are filled with coupons to local business such as putt
putt golf and subway sandwiches. If the ticket is not used for the scout
show, the coupons are worth in excess of the $2.00 spent.
