Our district is a smaller one, about 15 packs, 9 troops, and 5 crews. A
large part of our area is poor to lower middle class. I would be interested
in hearing some of your solutions for success in having scout-o-rama type
events within your district. How did you involve the community, how did you
publicize it, what were the main draws?
Did you use it as a recruiting tool, or just PR?
We have had 2 SOR's in the last 2 years and neither has gone well. A large
part of the blame is the lack of actually planning and including the unit
leaders from the get-go...but we are already starting to plan next year's and
want to make some big improvements. I thank you for any comments you can
send privately, or via the list.
