Popcorn Sales/ Trail’s End Pack Fundraiser Begins

Welcome to the Pack 414, 2012 Trails End Popcorn Season!  This year’s popcorn kickoff started on Tuesday, August 7.  Each scout is required to sell a minimum of $100 in popcorn. If you have more than one scout the second scout will be required to sell $50 in popcorn and if there is a third he will be required to sell $25 in popcorn.

New this year! Each scout that meets his minimum required sales will be able to attend all three 2012-2013 Pack Campouts FREE!

What better reason to sell popcorn than the opportunity to attend camp for free? We will need at least one parent in attendance for campouts; however parents and siblings will still be required to pay their own registration fees. We are encouraging all scouts to sell the very most they possibly can.  The pack receives only 28% of what each scouts sells and this money goes toward the purchase of all awards earned, as well as our Pinewood Derby, Blue & Gold Banquet, Rocket Launch, special guest speakers, and many other yearly expenses.  If it was not for the popcorn fundraiser families would have to out of pocket these expenses themselves, which at times can run quite costly.

Be sure to collect all money upfront; we are only placing orders to council that have been pre-paid.  Please don’t forget to have your prizes clearly marked on your form for your den leaders. All scouts are required to turn in your completed popcorn order forms to your den leaders at a date in which they set with you prior to the October 4 pack committee meeting.

Each scout is required to sell a minimum of $100 in popcorn. If you have more than one scout the second scout will be required to sell $50 in popcorn and if there is a third he will be required to sell $25 in popcorn.  If you have any questions or need more forms please feel free to contact Crystal Elliott (979) 943-4294 or e-mail crystalelliott06@gmail.com.

P.S. Webelos 2- You also earn 28% of your total sales which goes with you (payable to the Boy Scout troop you join) if you continue on the scout trail into Boy Scouts. Be sure to check out the council incentive if you want your Boy Scout summer camp for FREE.
