Popcorn Season has started!

posted May 15, 2011, 7:26 PM by Unknown user   [ updated Sep 15, 2011, 8:14 PM ]

The popcorn season has begun!  Our cubmaster will provide information about incentives, rewards, goal setting, and getting the pack revved up for the season.  Popcorn is the number one fund raiser for our Pack, bringing in thousands of dollars that the pack uses to charter our pack, pay for camping trips, special scouting trips, pack supplies, derby cars, awards, and more.

You can help by helping your scout sell popcorn in whatever methods are most comfortable for them, at a table at a store (Show and Sell Phase); walking door to door (Take Order Phase); or selling popcorn online (customer place order and product is delivered to them by trails-end).

Work with your scout and have them come up with a sales goal, something from them to strive for and work hard and do their best at achieving.  Have incentives within your family and encourage Den leaders to set goals for Dens and have awards at their level as well.

More information will be posted on the Popcorn Kernel Corner soon.

September Quick Update

A quick message from your popcorn kernel...

Thank you to all the Scouts, parents, Akelas for helping to sell popcorn to help raise money for the pack!

I need to do another quick check on how much popcorn is still out there in people's hands!  Can everyone please send me an email if you have any popcorn in your possession and how much.   Thank you all who have helped bring back popcorn they have not sold so other scouts could take advantage of the selling opportunity!

A quick reminder about selling:

PLEASE do not badger customers!  Always greet the store managers, ask where to setup, and thank the store managers when done! NEVER leave the selling area!  DO NOT WALK into parking lots, up to gas pumps and approach customers! 

This weekend (9/4 -9/6) is Labor Day Weekend, so I am hoping all the Scouts will take advantage of the long weekend and clear out the rest of our inventory.  Scouts could also hop on a computer and send out some invitations to family and friends to ask them to buy popcorn!

All sales (show and sell, take order, online) all count towards awards.  
See you all out there!

Some notes regarding inventory

posted Aug 11, 2010, 5:15 PM by Pack 409 Site Admin   [ updated Sep 13, 2010, 5:38 PM by Unknown user ]

Please DO NOT trade or transfer popcorn inventory between Dens or Families.
We as a pack are ultimately responsible for all product.  To help me keep track of the inventory, and to know what has been sold or not, please make sure to turn all money and unsold product into me.  I am happy to come to you or make it really easy for you to request more product or pick up excess or unsold product.

The inventory that I hold fluctuates and we hope in the end, we sell all of it.  I want to make sure I have enough product to enable all the scouts that want to sell and have the ability to sell in the immediately time frame - the ability to sell.   

So please help me keep track of all the outstanding inventory so we know what has been sold or not.  Please also keep accurate records of all the sales for each scout so each scout gets the appropriate credit for sales.
