Karen   October 17, 2017   Comments Off on All Popcorn Orders are due this week !!! You need to read this if you have sold ANY popcorn…

Popcorn Order sheets and money for popcorn are due this week.  Due to the number of scouts, we are asking that if your scout is done with door-to-door sales then you bring your popcorn sheets and money to the Den meeting tomorrow night.  We will be at the front desk collecting and entering popcorn sales and collecting money. 

If your scout is still selling, please complete your sales and bring the sales sheets to the October Pack meeting (FALL PICNIC) on Sunday, October 22, 2017. 

At time of collection you will need:

  1. Popcorn sales sheet (with totals at the bottom filled in),
  2. One check (if possible) or cash – total which matches the popcorn sales
  3. Prizes selected.

We ask that you have that you turn in just one check for the total amount of your sons sales. If you have multiple checks, please make sure that you have your sons name and den number in the memo section. If you have cash, please have the cash in an envelope with your son’s first and last name, den number and $ amount written on the outside of the envelope. All checks must be made payable to: PACK 843.

Prize selections: The turn-in process will go faster if your son already has his prizes listed. If you have an envelope with your order, write your prize selection on the envelope.

If you participated in the Show-n-Sell opportunities this fall then you should receive an email giving you your son’s hours and an estimated amount earned from the show-n-sells.  You will need to add the sales amount provided in the email to your door-to-door sales and any online sales in order to get your total sale amount.

Reminder:

  • If your sales (show-n-sell, door-to-door sales, and online sales) total at least $350, then your dues are covered for next year. If you sold over $350.00, the scout  profit amount from sales over $350 will go into your son’s scout account.
  • If your sales total sale is $700 or more then he will be able to throw a pie at our Cubmaster.
  • If your sales are $750 you will receive an invite to a private showing of the new Star Wars movie.
  • As an added bonus, we have a DRONE to give away at the Fall Picnic.  There are several ways to earn a ticket for the drawing:
    • Each hour your Scout worked a show-n-sell, he will earn 1 ticket
    • Each Penguin tin sold from door-to-door sales, he will earn 1 ticket
    • Each Steeler tin sold from door-to-door sales, he will earn 1 ticket
    • If the sold any item from online sales, they will earn 1 ticket.
  • Popcorn PICK-UP for door-to-door sales is Saturday, November 17th (time and location will be given in early November).  You MUST pick-up you popcorn during the pick-up time or make arrangements for someone to pick-up your popcorn for you.

If you will not be at the Pack meeting on Sunday, October 22, you MUST bring your Popcorn sales sheets, payment check made out to Pack 843, and prize selections to the Next Den Meeting (Wednesday, October 18, 2017).

Several people have asked us how to calculate sales and dues.  We have put together 2 examples to explain how the calculation works. Click on this link to see examples:   popcorn-sales-examples

Only 5 Show-n-Sell dates left – Sign up now!

Karen   October 3, 2017   Comments Off on Only 5 Show-n-Sell dates left – Sign up now!

You only have 5 more Show-N-Sell dates to earn sales and $$ for your scout account.  DON’T MISS OUT!!!

This weekend we will be our last weekend at Walmart in Robinson.  We need 4 scouts every hour so we can cover both Walmart doors.  Our donations this year are close to our amount from last year and we still have 5 show-n-sell days left!  Which means that the scouts that are working the shows are earning some nice $ for their scout account as well as popcorn sales to add to their door-to-door sales amount.

Also, the last 3 Show-N-Sells will only have 2 boys per hour since we will be at Lowes in Washington so those will be filling up fast. 

All the show-n-sell sign-ups are now posted.  Click here to sign up

Reminder, it is Wednesday which means you can sign up for more than 2 hours for this weekend.

We need Scouts for Show-N-Sells this weekend

Caterina   September 25, 2017   Comments Off on We need Scouts for Show-N-Sells this weekend

We have posted Show-N-Sell opportunities for Walmart in Robinson this weekend but do not have all the time slots filled.  Last weekend we were at Lowes and had all our slots filled.  The Scouts did a great job selling popcorn and collecting donations.  But our hours at Walmart are really where we make great sales and very nice donations.  However, we need 4 boys each hour to cover the two doors.  If we do not have enough boys signed up then we may have to reduce down to 1 door or reduce our hours – we would prefer to not to do that.  So, PLEASE sign up even if you can only sell for an hour.  Every hour helps!

Remember, when your Scout works the show-n-sell hours he earns two ways…  The show-n-sell sales count toward your son’s sales (and prize level) AND half of the donations collected at the show-n-sells is split among the boys that work the show-n-sell hours.  Donation money earned goes directly into their scout account at the end of our popcorn fundraiser.  Every hour helps the pack and your son’s account.

WE NEED ALL THE TIME SLOTS FILLED. Click here to get to sign up sheets.

As an added bonus, we have a DRONE to give away at the Fall picnic in October.  There are several ways to earn a tickets for the give-away:

  1. Each hour your Scout works a show-n-sell he will earn 1 ticket for the drawing
  2. Each Penguin tin sold from door-to-door sales he will earn 1 ticket for the drawing
  3. Each Steeler tin sold from door-to-door sales he will earn 1 ticket for the drawing
  4. If your son makes any online sale they will earn 1 ticket for the drawing

If you are new to scouts and are interested but not sure how to sign-up, please send me at text message (412-498-5540).

Thanks,
