     The Commission Rates for 2011:
     30%      Base – unchanged from 2010 but the council is also paying 3% for the Trail’s End prize program
              this year for all units! No need to invent your own incentive program – we do it for you! National and
              Mount Baker Council sales research shows that this tool will increase unit sales with individual in-
              centives for Scouts.
     6%        Average unit sales of $350 (was $300) per Scout, includes Show & Sell, Take-Order and Online
               sales. NOTE: Our Scouts sold an average of $348 in 2010.
              (Unit membership is initially based on the charter renewal youth membership number. Because 2nd
               year Webelos should be transitioned into a Troop, Pack numbers will not include 5th graders. Webe-
               los who cross over after charter renewal will not show up on troop rosters either.
     3%       Bonus for on-time orders and on-time closeout. This is especially important in order to qualify for
              the $600 Club Silvertips’ tickets.

The 2011 Incentive Plan:
$600                    Earn a Mariner’s game ticket voucher and a Zyclone launcher.
$1,000                  Mount Baker Council $1,000 club earns 2 Silvertips tickets (NEW) and a custom council
                        shoulder patch (CSP). The hockey game will be in December so we will need units to close
                        out on time to be eligible. It is important that all Scouts individual sales MUST be entered into
                        the popcorn system in order to qualify for the tickets.
$1,500                  Qualify for the Trail’s End $1,500 prize level - get a $50 Walmart or Amazon gift card
$2,000                  The Mount Baker Council $2,000 Club member will earn a $50 WalMart gift card and a custom
                        CSP.
$2,500                  Qualify for the Trail’s End scholarship program. After selling at this level once, a Scout’s an-
                        nual sale thereafter may be at a different level.

                                   The Beginning Of Scouting’s Second Century
      The annual Mount Baker Council Auction is coming this Fall and you can be a part of it. Here are three ways to
      help make the Auction successful:
     1. Help procure Live or Silent Auction items
      Auction Chair Gary Baker says that we are looking for donations of live and silent auction items. Live items tend to
      be valued at $500 to $5,000 while silent items are usually in the $100 to $400 range. Join us in seeking out great
      live and silent items from people in the community who want to support our Scouting programs.
       To donate or to volunteer, contact Gary at garybaker@grovestreetlaw.com. You may also contact Mike or Susan
       at the Everett Scout Service Center at auction@mountbakerbsa.org or at 425-338-0380. You may also fill out an
       eProcurement form at:
       http://www.mountbakerbsa.org/giving/auction/Scout%20Auction%20Procurement%20Online%20Form.pdf.
       2. Host a table, come as a couple or attend individually
       You and nine friends and/or associates can attend the auction and support the Mount Baker Council financially.
       You or your company or organization can sponsor a table of ten for $1,250 (Corporate Sponsorship) or $1,000 for
       a Table Patron sponsorship. Individuals may attend for $100 per person. Seating is limited to 300 people so indi-
       viduals or couples will want to get their seating preferences to us early. Otherwise, we’ll need to seat individuals
       and couples at tables with available space.
       3. Advertise in our auction program
       Color or black and white ads run $300 in our catalog for a full color page. Send us your camera ready copy or let
       us design your ad.

                                 Boeing Enhancements to Employee Gift and Volunteer Match Program
                                             Applies to: All U.S.-based Boeing employees
       Enhancements to Global Corporate Citizenship’s Employee Gift and Volunteer Match program as of July 1, 2011 will make it eas-
       ier to recognize employee contributions to the organizations they value most. The enhancements include lowering the gift-match
       minimum number of volunteer hours per calendar year from 50 to 25 hours in order to apply for a $250 gift match for the non-
       profit. This should allow those who volunteer fewer hours to still participate. This might include Unit Committee Chairs, Merit
       Badge Counselors and other Scouting leaders.

Participation in Boeing’s Volunteer Matching Program raises Scouting funds and is recognized by the Mount
Baker Council with Camp Coupons or REI gift cards!
Council President Scott Suchan and Council Camping Chair Dave Edenfield announce a special set of incentives and
recognitions for Boeing employees who go to the company website and report hours volunteered in Scouting in the second
half of 2011. For each 50 hours reported, you can earn an REI gift card OR $50 discount coupons for our 2012 Scout
Camps, Cub Day Camps, Cub Resident Camps and/or Venture Palooza.
The Boeing Company’s Employee Volunteer Gift Match Program
In June of 2010, Boeing introduced a new volunteer gift match program that focuses on the One Boeing Volunteer Cam-
paign. The matching plan was revised on July 1 of 2011 and Boeing now awards monetary contributions to nonprofit or-
ganizations where employees volunteer at least 25 hours in one year. The volunteered hours match is $250 for every 25
hours up to an average monthly maximum of $500 and an annual maximum of $6,000. The annual maximum of $6,000
per employee includes any gift matches to other organizations and Cause-Related Walk matches.
Where the matching dollars will go:
After consultation with Boeing managers and Executive Board members, it has been determined that the split for every
$500 in matching dollars from the Boeing Company will go to the long-term uses shown below:
* $167 toward the Council’s Endowment Campaign to fund Scouting in perpetuity. By request, these
      Dollars may apply to an individual’s James E. West Fellowship.
* $167 toward the Council’s Capital Campaign for improvements to our Scout Camps.
* $166 toward retiring the mortgage on the Everett Council Service Center. When paid off, this
      portion will be added to the capital campaign to improve our camp properties.
How do you report matching gifts and/or volunteered hours?
Requesting a Gift Match of $250 for 25 Volunteer Hours
When you have completed 25 hours of volunteering with the Mount Baker Council (or other qualified nonprofit), you can
request a $250 Boeing match by following these instructions:
     Access My Community Giving and then from the Employee Program home page, select the Volunteer Home.
        Then select the Record Volunteer Hours link.
     Click the Edit link next to the Volunteer Hour Journal with 25 hours logged.
     Click Match, complete the certification question and designate a specific program.
     Click the Save and Proceed button and then Submit. Then begin on the next 25 hours.
     Matching Volunteer Hours is for increments of 25 hours to one agency at a time and are totaled twice a year –
        from January 1 to June 30 and from July 1 to December 31. Hours do not roll over.
     On the website, select Mount Baker Council using the tax ID number of 91-1622046. Do not submit under the
        “Mount Baker Foundation” (our endowment fund) with the tax ID number 91-1129532 because although listed, this
        fund does not qualify for Boeing’s matching plan.

                  Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders
                                 (Hosted by Puget Sound District)

Camping is a cornerstone of the Webelos Scout program. Boys are eager to camp with their den in the great
outdoors. This places a great obligation on the Webelos den leader to make this experience exciting, uplifting,
fun, and memorable. Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders training is designed to help leaders learn
how to provide a memorable camping experience for their Webelos Scouts and parents or guardians.
This course is not required training for Webelos Leaders. However, the value of the Webelos Scout program
is a link between Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting. The participants will learn that the type of outdoor program
a boy receives as a Webelos Scout will determine, to a large degree, his interest in moving into a Boy Scout
troop. It is our challenge to provide him with exciting and interesting outdoor activities that meet the purposes
of Cub Scouting and the aims of the Boy Scouts of America.

                                                Camp Report
                                                “Frontier Days” Cub Scout Day Camp for 2011 in-
                                                volved about 1,650 boys attending 14 different
                                                camps from Everett to Snohomish to Bellingham
                                                and in neighborhoods in between.

                                                The boys are busy for about 6 hours a day learning
                                                BB gun skills, wood working, mastering archery and


many other games and activities.
A variety of theme-related stations
are also available. This year many
boys panned for gold, learned how
to make and/or use a slingshot,
and learned about how individuals
in the old west or pioneer times ex-
perienced living during that time
period. There were also camps
that took the Frontier theme to the
‘Final Frontier’ and discussed
space related topics.

The council offers twilight camps
that start during the dinner hour
and run for about 3 hours each
night. Many parents appreciate
this option which allows them to volunteer without having to take time off of work.

                                            In spite of inclement weather for a good number of the
                                            camps [interpreted as ‘rain’] our camps were enjoyed
                                            by all and can be considered as having finished an-
                                            other successful year of day camp in the Mount Baker
                                            Council.

                                            Council Day Camp Coordinator Tonya Reynolds ex-
                                            presses her heartfelt thanks to the Camp Directors,
                                            Program Directors, Camp Secretaries, Craft Directors,
                                            Tag Along Directors, Den Leaders and others who
                                            made our camps so successful.
