Troop Gear Lookout
We bought new tents for the new scouts that joined the troop last spring as well as replacements for some that had worn out.
I bought them online at, and I feel we got a good deal, but I find myself using up more time than I should looking for the very best deal sometimes.
For purchasing troop gear, it's a good idea to check out different stores for good deals to minimize your impact on the troop's resources, but using hours of time to save pennies can be too hard on the Scoutmaster.
Plan ahead for the gear you expect to need in the next year or 18 months. Then, research to find the general prices for the gear. Then, keep your eye out for sales and such as you shop and surf. When a good price shows up, buy what you need and don't worry about possibly having missed the same gear for $.25 less someplace else.
