At 7:30 in the morning, over sixty Scouts and Scouters showed up on to run the ice cream, churros and pretzel booths at the California Capital Air Show, September 12 and 13, 2009. We had eleven booths to run. The Venturing crew ran two booths selling t-shirts, hats and novelties. We learned how to run the booths in the early morning and how to clean them for the following day. While rain or the threat of it kept many people away on Saturday, the crowds came out to watch on Sunday. We were very productive and everyone had a good time selling ice cream and pretzels. A big bonus was having perfect positions to watch the air show performances.
