Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter March 21, 2017

I got a very helpful PowerPoint from Tripp Clark for a class that he created with input from others. However, whereas his was a little more of the “how” to collect patches my talk leaned towards the “why”. Facing an audience of Generation Z (did you you know that’s what anyone born since 1996 is called) I tried to spark an interest there.

Soon after publishing today’s newsletter I’m going to polish up and launch a Facebook Ad campaign to get folks living within 100 miles of Charlotte to come to the show. All the serious collectors have heard about the event but I’m hoping that through some targeted Facebook ads I can reach the regular Scouters that don’t know.

My son Patrick sat in on the class. During the early part I rolled out my personal campfire blanket that has all the patches I’ve earned and events attended. Instead of being impressed with the badges he blurts out “is that blanket soft?”. Patrick has a thing about blankets so his interest was in whether it would be good for sleeping.

With 10 days to go before the TOR I’m still launching new auctions up on eBay. I’m going to be burning the candle late into the night for the next several days trying to get everything ready.
