Recruiting Tool & Pack/Troop Activity: Benedictine University Football

It’s that time of year… Fall is just around the corner with crisp nights just begging for camping – or football!

Benedictine University* has partnered with the Thunderbird District again this year for an annual Scout Night at its September 20th football game. All Scouts (Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts) in uniform and their families will be admitted to the game FREE. We will meet before the game at 6:30 p.m., so we can all march on the field, sing the Star Spangled Banner, and recite the Scout Oath. Please extend an invitation to your entire Pack or Troop.


Benedictine will admit any prospective scout and his family if they bring the attached flyer. Why not challenge each of your scouts to invite a friend to come to the game, too? Perhaps you can all tailgate before the game for added fun. Keep in mind that any Scout recruits someone is also eligible to earn the Recruiter patch – an added bonus and incentive!

If you do recruit Scouts during this event and they join your Pack / Troop, would you please drop me an email? I'd like to track our "ROI" on events like this and report them back to the District Committee. Thanks for your help!

* Benedictine University is located at the intersection of Maple Ave. and College Rd. in Lisle.
