2014 Camp Cards
2014 CAMP CARD CAMPAIGN
Leaders and Volunteers,
The 2014 Camp Card Campaign is getting ready. This is the first of several communications to alert you. The Kroger dates will run the weekends from March 13-15 thru the April 12th weekend. The following weekend is Easter this year. Our sales campaign is March 8th through April 27th with money and card turn in set for May 2nd. Those dates are pretty fixed. The distribution of cards and return of cards will be coordinated through the districts and will be on varying dates.
The Kroger sites will be registered through a website again. It will open January 6th for reserving sites and dates. We did not fill all the available slots last year.
We are working on dates for 'best practice' round-robin discussions so those coaching units (we have Popcorn Kernels and now-Camp Card Coaches) can share ideas.
A sample of what will be on the cards:
North—Kroger, Dick's Sporting Goods, Texas Rangers, Bass Pro, Medieval Times & NEW…. NASCAR racing at Texas Motor Speedway!
Southern--- Wal Mart and Papa John's !!
I'll send a word about finances later to outline the whole…Popcorn, Camp Cards, Friends of Scouting issues related to how much comes in, where it's spent, what is the council's share of all this, and what future plans are. Till then, keep charging ahead.
