Troop 216 Scouts and Parents,
Troop 216 has partnered this year with Pack 34 to sell St. Louis Cardinal tickets. Tickets are for the Friday, September 14th game vs. LA Dodgers which is also 1929 replica Jersey giveaway night. We have a total of 400 tickets in sections 168-169. The retail value of these tickets are $61.
See below for more details:
– Scouts are selling the tickets for $35/each. Scouts will earn $12/ticket that will be credited towards scout accounts.
– The Cardinals have very favorable rules in the selling of these tickets, however, *please obey the following*:
1. Tickets can NOT be sold on secondary markets like Stub Hub, Craiglist, Razorgatorm, etc. 2. Tickets can NOT be sold at a higher price than the face value of the ticket. 3. Tickets can NOT be sold within the vicinity of Busch Stadium in a scalp-type situation.
– We as a troop did not have to front any money for these tickets and we can turn back up to 100 of them with no penalty. Bottom line, the Troop and Pack is on the hook for at least 300 tickets.
– Ticket distribution is underway and available from Mr. O’Koniewski.
– Payment for tickets is either cash or check made payable to Troop 216.
– *Due date for all ticket sales – September 10th*
– I will be at all scout meetings from now until the deadline. Please turn money into me as you sell tickets and let me know if you need more.
This is a golden opportunity for the scouts to earn some serious cash to plus up their scout accounts for future campouts or high adventure-type events. So ask your friends and neighbors if they want to go to a Cards game and at the same time support the boy scouts. This should be fairly easy.
This is an optional fundraising activity. Please email me if your scout would like to participate. Also, if you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
Good Luck!

Good evening,
After reviewing the weather forecast and consultation with Camping POCs (point of contacts), it was decided to cancel this weekend’s camping activity at Silver Lake for the safety of our participants. Payments will be returned or credit will be given to scout accounts. Our next activity is the first weekend of October – Rendezvous at Camp Warren Levis.
