Additional Scout-O-Rama Info

Good evening,

Saturday, November 7th is Scout-O-Rama at Tempe Kiwanis Park.  We have been having multiple practices of our booth theme of ‘Fire-by-Friction’, which culminated in many fires at yesterday’s final Halloween morning practice.  A number of the boys are adept both at causing and teaching fire starting – we will once again have one of the most unique and popular booths at the event.

The boys have begun doing patrol posters and signing up for shifts in the booth on Saturday.  We would ask that each boy take a 2 hour shift to host at the booth and/or demonstrate the techniques with visitors outside the booth.  Our kind friends with connections at Council helped us obtain the primo spot at S-O-R for our fire starting – SouthEast #1 right behind third base on the SouthEast baseball field.  Alex D. is coordinating with the patrol leaders to get each of the shifts staffed.  Last year, we needed upwards of 5-6 boys during the prime shifts due to the interest other scouts had in trying to learn the skills.

Additionally, we would be grateful for adult leader support during the event.  If we have enough boy coverage, it will be mostly providing support, and ensuring that the equipment stays functional (making more bird’s nest material, fixing bows, etc).  However, during the busiest times last year, some of us found ourselves assisting cub scouts and boy scouts in fire making.  If you could take a 2 hour shift some time during the day, it would be much appreciated.

Mr. Finnegan, Mr. Dahlmann and myself will be there with our boys early to set up tents, easels and tables, and to arrange the materials.  The first shift should get going by 10AM, and the shifts will continue until about 4PM.  This is one of the most amazing scout events of the year – please don’t miss it.

I’ll have specifics in handouts on Tuesday night.  I’ll put more details on the website later in the week.  Thanks for your support of Scouting.

Mr. Cole
