Utah National Parks CouncilScout Show How to Sell Tickets

How to Sell Tickets

Selling Scout Saver Cards is easy. Sign out 5 cards to each Scout, having them initial each card. Scouts can then team up in pairs, or go as a group and do a blitz around the neighborhood. Take turns as to who gets the credit for each sale. It’s always a good idea to bring an adult and only visit friends, family and neighbors you know.
Another great way to sell cards is to get permission from grocery stores to let Scouts stand out front and promote the cards to shoppers. Just like Girl Scouts can sell cookies, Boy Scouts can use this method to sell lots of cards quick. 
It’s also important to have Scouts keep track of the names and phones number of the individuals purchasing cards. These individuals can then be approached again next year. As Scouts sell cards and turn in funds, always record their progress on the Scout Tracking Sheet. Sign out more Cards as needed.

You can always go to the Scout office for more cards if you run out.
