I am the chairman for my district's scout-o-rama next May and am looking for
ideas concerning program, displays, ticket enhancements and ??. Our SOR has
come quite far in the last several years (we went from 900 tickets sold in
1994 and no one coming to 13,500 tickets sold and 5,000 people attending in
If anyone on the list has any thoughts or ideas from their own scout shows
or expos please send them to me. Our show is held at a fairground facility
with outdoor camping (scouts) and indoor booths (cubs). We have a
memorabilia trade-o-ree with it and a number of outside group displays
including a model plane club, train club, woodcarvers club, 3 scout museums,
live buffalo and burro, logsawing/branding station, endangered species
shows, Indian arts & crafts show, Norman Rockwell art gallery display and a
few other things. We would like to continue to improve our event (68 years
old) and so would like to know what other districts/councils include in
their shows. Thanks to all in advance!
