Popcorn Site Sales have Started!

Published on September 28, 2013,

Site SalesIt’s a blustery day outside, however Jonathan and Daniel are warm and dry in the West Seattle QFC! The Manager on Duty, Sean, put the boys right by the elevator to the car park since most people are driving.

First sale happened in minutes!

With such a wonderfully open store and with such a great backdrop, we’ll try and get a few more shifts here.

Let me know what days and times work best for you and we will get some more shifts opened up!

Popcorn Update 9/16

Published on September 16, 2013,

2013Header-website

We have THREE ways that we are selling this year:

1) Show and Sale

A large quantity of popcorn has been pre-ordered and will be arriving at the end of this week. This popcorn will be used for site sales or it can be used by your scouts for door-to-door sales. Please let Brian know via email what you would like for door-to-door sales.

For site sales we have picked a few dates for sale at the West Seattle QFC. The popcorn and set-up will be available so you and your scout just need to show up. The site sales will be evenly divided up between the scouts.

If there are other locations or dates you would like, please let Brian know via email. The current days and times for site sales can be found under the Popcorn menu on the website. We can also sell at West Seattle Thriftway (selected dates and times) and West Seattle Trader Joes but we would need to pick the dates and times.

2) Take Orders

Your scout should have a Trails End popcorn order form. If you do not, send an email to Brian, or stop by 4010 42nd Ave SW and take a form from the back of the Popcorn yard sign. These are the forms your scout can use for door to door sales or you can bring to your work for sign-up.

3) Online Orders

This is great for those friends and relatives that do not live close. The steps are super easy and you can get results fast!

Camp Ensign Camp-Out Polar Bear Crawl

Published on September 16, 2013,

The scouts had a blast with a Polar Bear Crawl down the Yakima River. The fishing pond just looked a bit too green to jump into so luckily we had the Yakima river right behind our campsite! The river was shallow and slow but the scouts still had a wonderful time.

Second Place Community Event at the West Seattle Grand Parade!

Published on July 20, 2013,

A956-2nd-place-trophyCongratulations Everyone, we got 2nd Place!

I just looked on the blog and we were voted the 2nd place Community entry right behind Our Lady of Guadalupe. So we have 364 days to come up with an even bigger plan for next year!

We hope everyone had a great day. Unfortunately we all got dispersed too quickly at the end and we were not able to get the popsicles and parade segments to everyone. We’ll hold them until the next event.

If you took photos, please either send them directly to Brian or use the PICTURE UPLOAD link above.

Your Pack 793 Leaders,
