Hmm. $50.00 seems cheap to me. Our families were asked for $158.00!
However, the way they explained that figure was a bit confusing.
Apparently our Council spends $158.00 per Scout. But when they
explained the sources of income, only 21% of that amount comes from
FOS. So why are they asking for the full amount in donation?
