We post flags on 6 holidays:
Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day.
Begin posting the flag the first holiday after you have collected subscription fees. Collect renewal fees the following year before that flag holiday (which you originally posted).
After renewal or new subscription is received:
Please return Flag money and cancelled subscription forms to the advancement window at Troop meetings as soon as possible. Please write the Scout�s last name in the memo line of the customer's check and paper-clip the check to the subscription form
If you have any questions regarding new flag subscriptions, renewals or transfers, please contact Greg Conklin (email@example.com).
If you need new flags, pounders, sleeves, or caps or have any unused flags at home, please contact Brent Broadrick (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Return torn or damaged flags to Scout House for proper retirement of flag. Please inform Brent Broadrick (email@example.com ) that you are returning a damaged/torn flag.
PRINTING RENEWAL LETTERS
Each scout is responsible for printing their own renewal letters.
You may print your flag renewal letters and new flag subscriptions from our troop website.

HOW FLAG MONEY IS DISTRIBUTED
New Flag or Renewal:
We split the $30 at sale or renewal between the Troop and the Scout in the following way: $13 goes to our troop and $17 to the scout.
The $17 that goes into the Scout�s account includes:
$5 credit for the sale or renewal AND
$12 credit for the postings for the coming year ($2 per holiday, 6 times a year).
The posting funds go into the scout account before they are technically earned (they are collected but unearned at that point).
Postings by other than the selling scout:
If another scout posts your flags for a particular holiday, please send the Flag Administrator an e-mail indicating who posted your flags, how many flags, and for what holiday so that the proper amount of funds are transferred from one scout account to another.
We handle postings that are done by other than the selling Scout on an exception basis. This is fairly easy to do because the selling Scout has the funds in his account and can transfer these to the Scout handling the postings for that particular holiday. If another scout posts your flags, that scout earns $2 per flag posted for that holiday. For example, if you have 20 flags, the other scout would earn $40 for posting your flags for that one holiday.
For flag transfers, we pro-rate the posting credits based on the renewal dates in the system for the customers being transferred. If the flags being transferred still have future holiday postings, then $2 per posting per flag will be transferred to the new scout receiving your flag route. Remember, those funds were placed in your account prior to all 6 postings.
Flag Transfer example:
If at the end of June, you transfer 3 of your flags to another scout; 1 flag that renews Independence Day, 1 flag renews Labor Day and 1 flag renews Presidents Day. Here is how the money would be transferred:
