posted Feb 22, 2016, 9:55 AM by David Martin   [ updated Mar 15, 2016, 6:19 AM ]
Supplies (from Peter Johnson)
  • 25 lbs pancake mix
  • 20 lbs sausage (donated)
  • 1 box of butter pads
  • 2 1/2 gal of syrup
  • 4 gal milk (not sure how much was used)
  • 4 gal OJ (not sure how much was used)
  • 1 pkg gluten free pancake mix
  • 1/2 dz eggs
  • 1/2 gal almond milk
Staffing
  • SHIFT 1    7:30-9:15: Matt Maruggi with Marshall Kadlec, 3 other adults, 8 scouts
  • SHIFT 2    9:00-11:15  Matt Maruggi with Marshall Kadlec, 1 other adult, 7 scouts
  • Chief Cook Adult: Matt Maruggi
  • Menu and food purchasing: Peter Johnson

Financials (from Brad Neuhauser)
  • Income: $615 ($435 cash, $100 checks, $80 square)
  • Expenses: $63.72 ($13.33 Cub, $48.18 Restaurant Depot, $2.21 square fees)

Suggestions for next time (from Corey Needleman):
  • Sandwich board advertisement on the corner "pancake breakfast today" 
  • More lead time with advertising:
    • get a specific volunteer to post something in the southside pride the Nokomis edition.
    • get a specific volunteer to flyers in local businesses.
    • ticket pre-sales seemed to work well. Sell more.
  • If we can get a committee member - or "to-be" committee member - to take on the promo for the event, and we can some  build in lead time for things like an ad in Southside Pride: Nokomis edition, and during a troop meeting have the scouts get some flyers out in the neighborhood. Get some Placemat made, etc.
  • I felt like this snuck up on us a little. Having more time for maybe another adult(s) to work on resource allocation, perhaps soliciting some donations of materials from the local Cub foods, or Targets, perhaps even Oxendale's, or Bergen's (though smaller businesses 'feel' that donation in a different way), etc
  • Another idea I like to see also, is for the troop to have a couple P-cake breakfasts at MUMC,  One in fall and one in Spring. Then for scouts attending High Adventure, if scouts want to run one - at their own, presumably different, place of worship - the troop has a system for doing this and will help out. Just an idea.
