Chris...

The go kart. Is that your Group's? Cos we have one that I think is the same.

Looks good. Good use of stills in a presentation.

You need to let us know if it works!

BTW is your Group necker the orange one? If it is this is getting almost spooky!

go karts are the groups, yup. we have 2 - very old but they still go round and round a field

our scarf is brown and blue, the orange one was a tolmers summer camp scarf that participants had to wear... (@doughboy - 11 tolmers pics are in there)

so far i have contacted likely parents and some off the waiting list for scouts...

we have a recruitment web page (ttp://www.thefifth.org.uk/index.php/scouts/new-troop) that we are sending people to

we are working outwards...

1) current parents - targeted
2) parents from the waiting list
3) current parents - all
4) sponsoring church
5) we'll see... i'd like to do it by 4... but we have a long list of places we can target

Looks really good. I've just done something similar for our AGM trying to encourage parents to help out. We've had some success with recruiting (not sure if it was down to the vid tho!), but the kids and parents enjoyed watching it. The scouts liked it and I've dared them to do something better for next year which they're up for.

Hi there,

music is

Battle Without Honor or Humanity
Tomoyasu Hotei
Kill Bill, Vol. 1 Soundtrack

I don't expect to recruit with just a video, but it all adds to a professional appearance... am hunting down potentials as i type

@Dr Stu, getting the kids is easy... we just need one or two adults to step forward to make a weekly commitment (I don't think i can get my head around flexible volunteering for the scout leader role)

Chris, that's awesome. You clearly have a fantastically active Group and I'm not surprised you are recruiting new adults!

The photos really show the great time your kids are having and the production and branding puts the professional edge on it.

(perhaps I will show it to my District and explain to them that running a pyrography stall and handing out a few inkjet printed A5 comic sans flyers is NOT the way to do it...)
