2012 Popcorn Sales – Starts This Weekend at Safeway!

Popcorn Sales begin this Saturday & Sunday at the following Safeway stores:

New den leaders, please sign up at the Sign-up-Genius invite from Popcorn Chair Mette Spears.  If we run out of slots, we can add additional shifts.

Please contact your den leader if you have not signed up for this exciting event!

Remember, sales earned at the stores count toward your Trails End Prizes!  These prizes are listed on the Face-to-Face Take Order forms that were handed out at the last Pack Meeting.  These sales and the individual sales you make selling to friends, neighbors, relatives and parents co-workers will count towards your Trails End Prize.

As an additional incentive announced at the Pack Meeting, to drive individual Face-to-Face Take Order sales, we've added more prizes to help motivate our boys.

  • $100 Take Order Popcorn sales - 1 Skylander game figure or $10 Target Gift Card
  • $150 Take Order Popcorn sales - Pie in Face
  • $200 Take Order Popcorn sales  - 2 Skylander game figures or $20 Target Gift Card (Please note that the prizes are not cumulative, meaning that earning the $200 prize mean they only get the 2 Skylanders or $20 Gift Card, and not the $100 prize of $1 Skylander and $10 Gift Card)
  • $300 Take Order Popcorn sales  - 3 Skylander game figures or $30 Target Gift Card (Please note that the prizes are not cumulative, meaning that earning the $300 prize mean they only get the 3 Skylanders or $30 Gift Card)
  • $400 Take Order Popcorn sales  - 4 Skylander game figures or $40 Target Gift Card (Please note that the prizes are not cumulative, meaning that earning the $400 prize mean they only get the 4 Skylanders or $40 Gift Card)
  • $500 Take Order Popcorn sales - 1 Skylander Giants Portal Owners Pack Game or $50 Target Gift Card (Please note that the prizes are not cumulative, meaning that earning the $500 prize mean they only get the game or $50 Gift Card)

Though, everyone can get a prize and the Pie in Face.

Also, the Den that sells most on an average per cub basis gets an ice cream party prize!

With the Product flyer and Take Order form, you can start selling today.

Please take some time to view the training video, so that you can see how easy it is to go out there and get people to support cub scouting!

Belt Loop and Pin for Video Games

Over 10 belt loops and pins have been added to the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program this year. Among them, video gaming is one of the most controversial to be added. Contrary to the traditional image of a scout, video gaming doesn't seem to belong. If you are puzzled like most people, this video may help answer a question or two.
