TP Street Festival

Pack Family, 

A pack that works together stays together & we did just that! Thank you so much for all that showed up & helped in one of our most successful festivals! 

A HUGE thank you to Matt Rhoads who spearheaded this & did a great job -- See his email below. 

Thanks to all 31+ pack 33 families who contributed to the Scout Carnival at the Takoma Park Street Festival.  The event was a resounding success, bringing in over $2098 (minus cost of the booth & prizes) in revenue to the pack.  In particular, we'd like to thank those who got up early on a Sunday to help set up--Luke Peterson and Teddy, Eli Koppel, Kevin Allison, and Sharena Payne, as well as those who stayed on late to disassemble games and the rope bridge, load out and haul back to the church, up the steps to the scout closet, including Jonathan Peterson and Grayson, David McCabe and Timothy, Paul Killebrew and Elmer, and Victoria Eisenberg and Avi and Kai.  Also big thanks to Colin Sellar, and all the scouts from troop 33 who helped assemble and run the rope bridge.  Really most proud of our scouts, who were excellent hosts of the games and who drew many guests back repeatedly to play again and again.  Thanks again so much to all.  It was awesome to see such a great turnout and show the community what a great group of kids we have!

Matt Rhoads, Festival Coordinator & Webelos leader

SIGN UP: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0c4ea8ad2da0f94-takoma

Sign up to work a shift with your scout at the Scout Carnival at the Takoma Street Festival on October 3rd.  We need all available scouts to sign up, participate, and have parental support.  This is an all hands on deck event and is our one major fundraiser for the year.  We need volunteers for this event to be successful and represent the pack well in the community.   

For the carnival set up and tear down, we are seeking 4 adults.  Scouts may participate in set up and tear down as well, but only in addition to (and not instead of) 4 adults.  If signing up for these slots, please sign up with the adult's name.

We will need a minimum of two adults running the ticket booth with their scouts for each 2-hour shift.  For these slots, too, please indicate the adult's name.  

Each available game host slot represents a single scout with adult support.  Fill in your scout's name in the sign-up for game slots.  We are seeking to have 8 scouts on site to run the games for each 2-hour shift, with a minimum of 4 parents overseeing each group of 8 scouts.  Adults with scouts running games should plan to attend for the full duration of their scout's shift unless they arrive and are able to ensure a 1 adult per 2 scouts ratio for the the group that is running the games, not including parents that are running the ticket booth or doing set-up/tear-down. 

Email Matt Rhoads at mattrhoads9@gmail.com if you have questions about the carnival prior to signing up.
