Troop Cookbook Fundraiser
The object of this project would be to create a camp cookbook from recipes
provide by troop 174 and its friends.
Concepts and Methodology
Here are the steps that will need to be taken to get this going:
Form a committee of volunteers to create the cook book.
Email or hand deliver instructions on recipe entry to all scouts and there
Work on Cover artwork and chapter page artwork
Develop introduction page
Present final draft to troop members
Submit for printing
Chairpersons to manage the project.
Committee members to work on;
Choose committee 9/20/06-9/30/06
Distribute login recipe entry information to the troop and its families
Have recipe entry complete by 10/12/06
Have artwork selected 10/9/06
Proof cook book 10/13/06
Send out for printing 10/16/06.
Receive books for delivery 12/16/06
The approximate cost to print the book will be $ 3.30-3.50 per book. I
propose that we keep the book to 150 recipes or less. We should print 200
at a cost of $660.00-700.00. We should sell the books for $10.00 for a
total of $ 2000.00 this would net approximately $ 1,300.00 in profits.
There are 3% extra books printed at no charge which would yield an additional
One nice thing about this once the initial work is done this is easy
to edit and create future cookbooks or simply order more if they sell well.
Payment is due 90 days post delivery for non profits i.e.: BSA
