Scout-O-Rama (SOR) will be held on May 13, 2017 (10:00am - 4:00pm) at the History Park, San Jose. Please note that the SOR coupon card is your admission ticket to the Scout-O-Rama event.
SOR Coupon is $10 per card and comes with multi-use offers to local retailers, including Togo’s sandwich, San Francisco Giants, Goodwill Store, Scout shop, and more. Activity card also includes four one-time coupons offers to retailers in the community, including $10 Off Orchard Supply, $10 Off BIG 5, $10 Off Dick’s Sporting Goods, and $30 Off Great America.
Troop 457 requires (mandatory) that each family buy, at least, one coupon card. For every card sold, Troop 457 will keep $3. This helps our troop when paying for camp or other Scouting activities. If you buy at the gate, on the day of the SOR event, you still pay $10 but the troop does not benefit.
We will be doing the "Lumberjack Sawing" activity at the Troop 457 Booth at the Scout-O-Rama 2017 event.
We need Scouts and Parents to sign up for 2 hour shifts, to coordinate the Troop 457 Booth ?Lumberjack Sawing? activity. Please sign up on the google doc: https://goo.gl/xckCO4
