2018 Popcorn Show & Sell

Does your scout need to practice his public speaking, good manners, or accepting rejections gracefully? Selling popcorn is a great way to practice all these skills!  This year we booked opportunities at different locations; try them all! Please sign up on SignUpGenius! Sales earned at the store, along with your individual sales to friends and neighbors, all count toward your scout's Trails End Prizes! In addition, every scout that sells $125 or more will receive a Survival Tool Prize! And - back by popular demand - the top two individual sellers will receive a bow and arrow or drone! The top selling Den will receive a Ice Cream Party!  Furthermore, every scout that sells $125 or more will have their winter camping fee discounted (we are looking towards participating in an overnight at the Monterey Bay Aquarium).

For credit card payment, please send email to slannus@yahoo.com our Pack Treasurer Shawna, with your name, email, den number, and your scout's name. Shawna will send you an email invitation to create a Square account and the instructions on how to set it up. Please also download the free Square app to your smart phone:
 .

Be sure to read PACK 1776 Popcorn Sales Station Instructions (2018) If you’re the first or last shift, you must pick up or return the popcorn and cash box at Govind's home.

Alternatively, you can also:

1) Show and Deliver: go to Govind's home on Saturdays and Sundays between 9:00 am and 10:00 am and pick up popcorn. Sell as much as you can. Bring back the cash and remaining popcorn by October 14.

2) Take Order: take your popcorn order form (ask your Den Leader if you need one) and let your customers choose all the flavors; collect the advance payment. Bring your form and payment to Govind. Popcorn will be available for you to pick up and distribute in mid-November.

3) Online: Set up an account at trails-end.com and sell online.

When selling door to door, please follow these safety rules:

  • Never enter someone’s home.
  • Don’t carry large amounts of cash with you.
  • Always walk on the sidewalk and driveway.
  • Always sell with another scout or adult.

Remember to wear your Class A uniform, be respectful and have fun!

First time selling? Here's a video on what this is all about!

Hike at Las Trampas Regional Wilderness

September Hike At Las Trampas

Date: Saturday, September 29, 2018
Time: 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 pm
Location: Las Trampas Regional Wilderness
Meeting Point: Parking lot at the end of Bollinger Canyon Road, San Ramon, CA

Attire: Class B
RSVP: Evite
Contact: Hiking Chair - Siddharth Bhatia 408.431.8037

Directions: From Highway 680: Take the Crow Canyon Road exit. Drive west on Crow Canyon for about 1 mile, then turn right (north) onto Bollinger Canyon Road. Continue about 4.5 miles to the trailhead at the end of the road. Alternatively, drive west on Bollinger until it ends at the park. It is about 10 miles from school on Bollinger Canyon Road. Meet at the parking lot at the end of the road inside the park.

Trail: Bollinger Creek Loop trail. It is a very nice nearly flat 1.2 Mile trail. It should take less than 1 hour to complete. Is is an easy hike for our younger scouts and a nice hike to start off the new year in scouting. Since this is a short hike, we can start later when it is slightly warmer.

What to Bring:
Plenty of water and snacks
Layers of clothing appropriate for the weather
Binoculars, camera (optional)

Overview:
Las Trampas (Spanish for the traps) has two distinct areas, each with its own personality. Rocky Ridge, on the west side of the valley, is known for views in all directions, unusual rocks and green rolling hills lightly forested with California bays, oaks and maples. The wildflower display on the hills just off the ridgeline is an east bay favorite. The Las Trampas Ridge, to the east, is quite different, featuring a plant community dominated by chamise with other chaparral plants such as manzanitas and coyote brush.
