My council has held Scout shows for years and my troop has always (until
recently) participated, both in the ticket sales and the event. It is
usually held at a public park, mall, or at the fairgrounds. My question
has always been,'How do you charge attendance at a public place?'
Tickets cost $1-2 dollars and include a candy bar w/coupon for a burger,
etc. This year after much soul searching and threats from the
volunteers, we sold (name deleted ) popcorn, made a mint, held the Scout
show for free and will do the same next year. The popcorn sold like crazy
and I'm getting calls from my customers wanting to know when they can
order popcorn for next year. BTW, if anyone out there wants to order
some, just email me at the address below. (Crass commercial message -- in
jest . I will not sell over the net.)
