2017 Scout Fair - Booth Participation
**There will be one special collectors patch for each unit that participates with a booth in the Scout Fair**
Please complete the registration and submit no later than April 3, 2017. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Each Pack, Troop, Team, Crew, Ship and Post is encouraged to sponsor a booth at the fair!! This is your opportunity to show our community what Scouting is all about and to share your scouting skills with fellow Scouts and Scout Leaders. There will be one special Scout Fair patch for the unit leader of each unit that participates in the 2017 Scout Fair. The Scout Fair Leaders Guide gives many suggestions of booths appropriate to different ages and Scouting levels. Some ideas from the past have included nail-pounding contests (Cubs), rope making (Scouts), orienteering (Venturing) and law enforcement (Exploring). Participation in the Scout Fair can be SIMPLE and FUN for all of your Scouts and parents!
Please consult the Scout Fair Leader's Guide for the NEW Guidelines for 2017.
Because of the location at Qualcomm, NO electricity is available and water is a long distance away!
