I am new to Scouting and have stepped into a treasure role with my son as a new Wolf. This year is the beginning of our first year together and we are just about to wrap up Popcorn sales next week. Part of what was agreed upon was that a percentage of the sales commission would be used for Pack expenses/events and the remained held for scouts to use for Scouting expenses (Uniform, Scout Handbook, or events). We already have a family that is looking to use those earned funds towards the purchase of a uniform. Writing someone a check is out of the question, so how can we make sure that the funds that are being used are only for said item, ie. uniform? How are others doing this. Also, right now we are keeping track of all the Scouts “credits” per-say in a spreadsheet ledger. How is everyone keeping track of what credits are “consumed” by the scout? Another ledger or transaction sheet?
Sorry for all the questions. This is all very new to me.
