Scout-O-Rama is the annual “trade show” of Scouting in Orange County that is attended by over 20,000 participants. Scouts, their families and friends interested in learning about Scouting enjoy a fun-filled day of exhibits, competitions and displays. Some popular events from recent years include dutch-oven cooking demonstrations, climbing towers, obstacle courses, Bubble Rollers, Medieval Times and the Vans Skate Team shows.   Based on our success from last year, Troop 99 is hosting a booth again at this year's Scout-O-Rama.     Scouts needed to assist with the booth throughout the day - the Scouts work in rotations so they can assist with our booth, but also experience all the fun of Scout-O-Rama!     Transportation to and from Scout-O-Rama available.    Sign up here

Camp Cards/Adventure Cards

Posted on Mar 28 2017 - 5:38pm
At the last troop meeting the Scouts were given 15 Adventure Cards worth $150.  Each card sold can earn your Scout up to $4 in commission which goes into his Troop 99 Scout account which helps him pay his way through Scouting.   By selling just 15 cards, your Scout can earn a minimum of $45 to pay for Troop 99 activities.  Based on sales from last year this should only take about 2 hours, which pays him over $20 per hour.  Last year, Troop 99 had one Scout who sold 150 cards, and he was able to pay his own way to summer camp and had money left over in his account to pay for other Scouting activities. 
The cards have a few differences this year which is a good thing:
·         The cards are not cards at all.  It is an app that you are selling access to.  Once the buyer creates their account and downloads the app for the Apple or Google Play Store, they have their discounts with them at all times.
·         You can use the app in any city (just update your location on the app)
·         Discounts in the app are constantly being added (and removed)
·         On the back of every card is an access code which allows the buyer of the card to download the app on their phone.
Where to sell the cards
·         In Front of Stater Bros. Market: Reservation Needed - Yorba Linda and Placentia stores, time has been reserved for Troop 99 (reach out to Mr. Mies for open times)
·         In Front of Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions: No Reservations Needed -  $5.00 off coupon with purchase of $50 or more
·         Door to door: Start with your neighbors 
·         At Work: take your cards to your work, your co-workers want to help support your Scout
How to sell the cards:
·         Go out with an Adult.
·         Wear Class A uniform. You are representing yourself, Troop 99 and the BSA.
·         Practice your sales presentation before you go.
·         Have change ready.
How many cards your Scout sells is up to you and your Scout.  All we ask is for a minimum of 15 cards be sold.  If you want more cards reach out to Assistant Scout Master, Mr. Paul Mies (714-609-1314) and he will keep your Scout supplied with cards (request 24hr notice).
If you have any questions about the cards don’t hesitate to reach out to Mr. Mies.
