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!

Site Sales Posted!

Published on September 21, 2015,


We have a handful of Site Sales posted coming up for selling popcorn at the QFC at 42nd. This is a great location because it is indoor and both of the main entrances to the store go right past where the scouts set-up!

Please sign up soon and pick a spot. If we end up with free spots we will open them up to other Cub Scout Packs. If we need more, I’ll fight for more.



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!!


Popcorn Pick-up!

Published on September 19, 2015,

AskMeAbout PopcornThe First two Popcorn Pick-up times are this weekend. The location is the garage on the backside of the popcorn kernel home at 4010 42nd Ave SW. It is best to go south on the alley between 41st and 42nd from Andover. This would minimize congestion due to Westfest.

  • Saturday 9/19 2 PM – 4 PM
  • Sunday 9/20 11 AM – 1 PM

We also have limited quantities of “Ask Me about Cub Scout Popcorn” buttons available. This is a great way to generate additional interest while at Westfest!
