Halloween Party 2017

Overall debrief and improvements for next year:

* Scouts participated in two shifts, one from 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM that involved setup, one from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM that involved cleanup.
* Jeanette purchased food--pizza, hot dogs, chips, buns, soda--and dropped it off in the church kitchen the day before the party.
* Michael got $30 seed cash and put out the price sign and cash box by the food the day of the party.
* First shift crew started the ovens and cooked the pizzas and hot dogs
* During the party, we ran out of pizza, and Hillary went out to get more
* The net profit for the night was about $300

To avoid running out of supplies, Jeanette and Hillary recommend the following quantities:

18 thin crust frozen pizzas, NEED 25
64 hot dogs and buns, NEED 90
94 cans of soda, NEED 120
