Calling all Scouts! Popcorn sales time is upon us. Check out the Popcorn page under Activities to get the latest info!
What a great weekend to start the Mountain Valley District Popcorn Fundraiser! I have had two new Tigers and a new Bear come to my house and have seen several Boy Scouts out and about town! The first Tiger to the door mentioned this exciting prize and even asked me to “fund his adventure”! Way to go leaders for getting them excited!
Last weekend, I conducted the Sellers Academy at the Tri-District Fall Camporee for 57 scouts to tell them about the fundraiser and get them fired up! They were most excited about the prizes they will receive for $1,200 in sales so that was a pretty common goal that was set. We broke the numbers down to sell 10 items a day with the average item of $25 would only require selling 5 nights during the three-week sale! They thought they could find five days to sell and make their goal!
Scouts who sell $1,200 will receive scout bucks, a LifeStraw, hydration pack, Drybag, first aid kit, survival bracelet and a flashlight or Leatherman! WOW! What really got them excited was they get to go to a waterpark adventure in Great Falls including camping, dinner, entertainment and breakfast! Last Wednesday, Boy Scout Andrew and Venture Sandy joined me at the XL Country studio to talk about the popcorn sale! They made sure to mention the activities that scouting funds and also the new Trail Mix that is in the mix for those that don’t like popcorn. Most importantly, the scouts can accept donations for purchasing popcorn to send to the Troops overseas. One scout I talked to said a lady donated $400 last year to purchase popcorn to go overseas. What a wonderful treat from home for our Troops!
We will offer the ACME School of Business at the Cub Scout Rocket Academy on October 1st! Scouts who attend will receive tips on how to increase their sales, make their own selling clipboard, practice their sales script and even receive a graduation photo for completing all the stations! The ACME School of Business is open to all scouts in the MVD so come join us for some great tips and tricks!
I just heard from one of the Mystery Houses in Belgrade that Blake from Troop 649 found the Mystery House! Mystery House winners turn in their certificate to their Popcorn Chair to win a prize from our District Office. There are Mystery Houses in each of our communities – Livingston, Gardiner, Big Sky, Three Forks, Belgrade (2 houses) and Bozeman (2 houses).
I can’t wait to see who will win our District and Council Fill ‘er Up drawings by turning in their filled up sales sheets! Don’t forget to send the sheets to BOTH Council and District! The prizes are AWESOME!
Reminder that the sale is from September 24-October 16 and the popcorn will be delivered the week of November 5th. Thank you to all of the Popcorn Chairs for getting our scouts fired up to “Fund their Adventure”! GO POPCORN!!!!
