Popcorn Sales Continue

Weekend #3


The third weekend of Popcorn sales continues.  We have our weekend show and sell at Ace Hardware on Saturday & Sunday.  

Last week we got up to $17,500 in sales.  This total includes show and sell, take home order and online sales.  Our Own Connor Leveling from Den 9 was #2 in the entire Council with almost $2,300 in sales.  Congrats to Connor and keep on going.  The complete list can be found below.  Not bad but we are only 1/2 way there.  If you haven't entered your sales please enter what you have up to this point.  



The video below shows the highlights of the "Pie in the Face" example at the popcorn blitz with Cubmaster Bryan as the victim.  At the end of all the sales the top seller in each Den gets to Pie their leader and the top three will get to Pie Cubmaster Bryan.  If we hit $35K for Pack 35 the Popcorn Queen and King will take pies from a chosen boy from the Pack.  That should be all the incentive you need to keep selling!

Why We Sell Popcorn

Popcorn allows our Scouts to go to camp. 
It pays for the Pack awards. 
It allows us to have more fun without charging dues or asking parents for additional money. 
It also helps the council to provide support and guidance to local units. 
 
Boys also learn a lot.  They learn sales skills, how to speak to adults, money and organizational skills.  Selling popcorn is much more than just raising money and earning prizes, it is about teaching life lessons. They can also earn money for summer camp!

Awesome Grand Prizes

The Pack is offering several cool grand prizes for the top sellers.  The prizes include a gaming system, tents, fishing gear, sleeping bag, bike and maybe a few other surprises.


There are several prizes offered by the Council that boys can earn as they move up the sales levels.  A list can be found here.
 

Selling Online

Selling online to family and friends outside the area is easy.  You can see the step by step instructions here.  There are also instructions on how to post on Facebook.  

The best way to sell online is to ask for Military donations.  These are super simple, helps support your Pack and there is no big delivery charge.  It also takes away the excuses of "I don't need any popcorn" or "It costs too much to ship."  

Also, take a look at this info from the Council.  Good stuff.
