As the Troop 2413 fundraiser has gotten underway we wanted to provide a few FAQs. Before we go into the FAQs we would like to thank all the parents for your support. As we’ve stated, our goal is to earn enough through the fundraiser to take care of all the local expenses through the year so that none of the families have any burden for the activities, which in some cases could be over $100. That is not only for the Trailmen but also for the Leaders. Some adventures could be costly if we weren’t making this fundraiser a success.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Who should checks be made out to?

OHC Trail Life Troop 2413

Are we collecting money when lights are ordered or when we deliver?

We are officially collecting upon delivery, but some people want to pay upon order and that is OK too.

Why are we selling $35 flashlights?

HybridLight sells these lights in Cabelas, REI, LL Bean and other outdoors stores at the same price. We are not selling $35 lights, we are selling your son’s activity in Trail Life. The lights are a bonus.

Will the troop leaders help the boys?

We are organizing some neighborhood door to door sales that your son can participate in. (please help them with what to say)

Is there a script for the Trailmen?

Absolutely, a sample is included below. The main thing is to tell why the Trailman is doing the fundraiser, then to ask “Will you help me earn my way” and always thank people whether they buy or not.

Sample Script:

Hello, my name is ______________ and I’m with Trail Life Troop 2413. I am trying to earn my way to get some lights for camping and a Henry Rifle. The money we raise will help support our troop activities. I have four really cool solar rechargeable lights to choose from. This is my favorite (point to favorite on the sheet) but you can choose whichever one you like. In fact you can choose them all or as many as you like, we don’t have any limits. Will you help me earn my way?

What is the goal for each boy?

The goal is 48 of a mixture of the $35 lights. This enables your Trailman to earn prizes all the way up to the Henry Rifle or two light kits.

Why have we set goals high?

Many families are not in the position to pay for some of the Hit The Trail activities so their Trailman would not be able to participate if we didn’t have our goals high enough. In addition, we want this to be a program that really means something to the boys which means we want to do some high level adventures as we grow.

When do we turn in orders?

You can turn in orders at the beginning of the meetings on Monday nights. We will have most orders fulfilled before you leave so that they can be delivered.

How long do we get to sell the lights?

Presale ends: October 15, 2018, Final delivery: Week of October 22, 2018, All Money Due: October 29, 2018 (dates subject to change)

Could the kickoff to the fundraiser have been smoother?

Yes, our troop is less than a year old and this is our first significant fundraiser. It is also a pilot program with Trail Life USA and not yet perfected.

Can we get additional order forms?

We have a fillable .pdf on the website for your convenience. You can fill it out on your computer or print it and fill it out by hand.
