Popcorn Prizes!

Published on October 29, 2015,

Your Scouts Prize Selection is Due November 2nd!

Popcorn Sales are over and the totals are in! Everyone did an AMAZING job this year!

Now the next steps are to pick your prize based on your total sales and let me know by November 2nd. If you lost your Prize sheet, you can find it HERE online.

Find your scouts total below. Your scout can pick one or more prizes that total up to your total below.

So as an example, Finnegan was a BIG seller with $1010. He can pick one of the prizes in Level 7 ($1000), or he may pick prizes from other levels that add up to his total. As an example, he could instead pick one item from Prize level 5 ($650) and one item from Prize level 3 ($350) for a total of $1000 in prizes.

Those scouts that sold over $600 will automatically receive a remote control car!

and EVERYONE that sold popcorn will be invited to a Pizza party in December (TBD) for the prize hand-out.

Thank you!

Popcorn Tip: Ask for the Sale!

Published on September 21, 2015,

OliverPopcornPopcorn Tip from Oliver!

Oliver and his mom were picking up popcorn from the popcorn kernel in a garage on an alley. He had just been practicing his popcorn selling skills when a car came down the alley and was trying to go past his mom’s parked car. Oliver spoke with the driver and told him he was selling popcorn for Cub Scouts and the driver bought a Sweet and Savory! Oliver got 10% of his quota by just asking for the sale!

Remember that people want to help Cub Scouts. Ask potential customers if they want to help Cub Scouts before asking if they want to buy popcorn.

Great Job Oliver!!
