Troop 563 has sold more than 1000 Camp Cards, their conservative goal is 1500, but they think they can do 2000. They have 200 out with individual Scouts and an additional 200 allocated for a big sale at our Masses on Sunday. They just picked up another 250 to cover our sales push this Saturday, and for anyone who needs more for personal sales. They've had entries in every single drawing so far. One of their Scouts has already paid for his week at summer camp and the APEX week at Musser Scout Reservation. Another Scout has completely paid for his week at camp, and a few others are only a few card sales away. The remainder of the troop is still going strong, and are also very close to their goals.

Pack 100 and Troop 100 in Roosevelt District sold 169 Camp Cards in one weekend. They had approval to sell after the four masses at St. Martin of Tours Church.

Pack 537 of Moffet Elementary in Scoutreach District was doing mock sales presentations to the district committee members. The boys presented the cards so well the committee members bought 10 cards within 2 minutes. One committee member said "The boys presented so well I would hire them as salesmen if they were of age; very pleasant and determined!"
