Hello Scouts, Scouters, and Parents:
Duck parking is only 3 weeks away!
If you will turn 12 before December 1, you may be eligible for some Duck Parking jobs. This year, there are several jobs that 12 & 13 year old Scouts can do with their parents accompanying them (guard duty & curb duty). All jobs are available for Scouts 14 years and over. As in previous years, we try our best to accommodate everyone’s top choices for games and jobs they want most to work.
Please read through the enclosed document and sign the page saying that you have read and agree to it. We must have a signed agreement from everyone who works at Duck Parking jobs. (That includes parents — who also need to have a current Registration and Youth Protection certificate too.)
Just as last year, Parents and Scouters will not be paid for their work. As adults, we help our Scouts to fundraise for their ability to pay for their trip to summer camp and Seabase next year! However, by working at least 3 Duck Parking jobs and 20 hours, you become a Scouter in good standing and will have your campouts and BSA Registration paid for by the Troop.
This year, we will not be picking up cans and bottles. It simply was not very profitable and the risks associated with it were not worth it for the Troop.
So here are the dates for working. There are 6 home games. Please rank (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) the jobs that you would like to do with 1 being your top choice and 7 being one that you could still work but you would rather not. Also, put a 0 (zero) next to those games/jobs that you know you cannot work. If it doesn’t matter to you, put ANY.

Please reply to this email by Friday, August 19. I do my best to make sure that everyone gets their top choices if they are eligible. I hope to let you know next week which dates you will be working. Remember that once you have been given dates to work, you are committed to work those dates and if you are unable to work any of your assigned dates, contact me. You may not swap games with others without coordinating with me. So please rank only those games that you are sure that you can work. If you are still waiting for your sports or band schedules from school and cannot commit right now, please tell me this and the dates you best think you will be available.
Thank you. This will be an exciting season and a great opportunity to earn money for going to summer camp next year!
