|HOW DO WE RAISE THE MONEY?
All bowlers should ask their families, friends and neighbors to sponsor their total score for three games. A minimum of 5 cents per pin bowled is the recommended pledge but any amount is acceptable. Pledges per pin times score equals the amount to be collected. As an example: If a bowler bowls a total of 250 pins and a sponsor has pledged 5 cents per pin, a total of $12.50 would be collected from the sponsor. The more sponsors a bowler has the more money they can raise for Scouting. If your Scouts are given a donation, please record it in the flat donation column and the “Total Due” column and leave the “Pledge per Pin” block blank. Scouts should request pledges rather than donations.
1. Enclosed is a sponsor sign-up sheet, which should be used in recording sponsors. Each Scout must bring this sheet with them when they bowl so the score can be recorded and they can collect their pledges. Extra sponsor sheets are available from your District Executive and at the Council Service Center.
2. After your unit bowls, each Scout should go back to his sponsors and collect their pledges. When all pledges have been received, the unit leader should complete Column Seven (7), “Total Dollars Collected”, of the “Control/Prize Order Sheet” and forward it to the Council Service Center with the payment. The unit retains their share.
WHAT PRIZES CAN BE EARNED?
Once again the “Top District Fund-raiser” and “Top District Sponsor-collector” prizes are being offered as well as prizes for individual bowlers. It is hoped that as the bowlers strive to earn larger prizes, the commissions for all units will increase substantially.
Prizes are awarded only after all monies are turned into the Council.
Cub Scouts may also qualify for the Bowling Belt Loop, which would be provided by their pack.
WHAT: “BOWL-A-THON” is a fun activity for all Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Leaders, Parents, and Friends of Scouting. Youth Members will receive prizes based on the number of sponsors that they secure. This is an official Council activity, so uniforms may be worn.
WHY: To raise monies to be used exclusively to sustain the program of Scouting in the Transatlantic Council, which serves over 10,000 young people and over 3,500 adult volunteers. This event increases the awareness of Scouting throughout your community and it is a proven, successful fundraiser.

|Encourage each scout to raise money by flat fee rather than by pin count. We need to try to collect flat fee money by the 13th of April 01. This will help us pay for bowling up front and prevent incurring too much cost to the Pack. The Den Leaders/Coordinators need to get a head-count to the committee no later than the 13th of April so lane assignments can be made in advance.
