Cub Scout Pack 266 (out of Dunwoody United Methodist Church) has monthly pack meetings, camping trips, Pinewood Derby races, and much, much more.

Popcorn Update: Keep the sales momentum going! Sales orders due October 25! Prize & incentive reminders!

Posted on Sep 30 2014 - 9:00pm

Congratulations to Daniel Lanier (Den 10), this week’s $200 sales drawing winner! Those selling $200 this week (Sept 29 thru Oct 5) will be eligible for next week’s drawing.  Email your den’s popcorn coordinator when you reach $200.

We set 3 goals at our Popcorn Kickoff meeting on Sept 9.  With 3 ½ weeks to go, here’s how we’re doing against them (as of Sept 28):

  1. 100% participation (58%; 50 scouts reported $200 weekly sales and/or attended a Show N Sell)
  2. $22,000 in total sales ($17,000; based on Show N Sells and other sales reported by you)
  3. $300 sales per scout (20 scouts have already reported sales of at least $300)

Would you like a chance to win an iPad mini?  Once we reach our $22,000 goal, we will hold a raffle for an iPad mini.  Scouts receive one entry for each $200 sold (traditional, Show N Sell, online sales all count).

Over the next 3 ½ weeks, keep selling to help us reach our goals.  Focus on both traditional sales to your neighbors and other local friends & family, and also online sales by emailing your out-of-town contacts via the Trails End web site.  Online sales instructions are on the Pack web site: http://pack266.org/taxonomy/term/1142

Prizes, prizes, prizes!  Below is recap of the sales and incentives offered by the Pack and the Atlanta Area Council.

  • iPad mini raffle once we reach our sales goal of $22,000!  A second iPad mini raffle if we reach $25,000!

SALES REMINDER: When selling door-to-door, any checks should be written to the adult, NOT Pack 266.  Adults will write the Pack a single check for all orders at order pickup in November.  Show N Sell checks should be written to Pack 266.

Thank you to the 34 scouts (and their Akelas) who participated in our four Show N Sells last weekend.  Between Show N Sells and individual sales reported by you, we have reached 47%+ of our sales goal!  Great job!

Congratulations to Jackson Maddox (Den 12 – Bear) – this week’s $200+ sales drawing winner!

Those selling $200 this week (9/15 – 9/21) will be eligible for next week’s drawing.  Email your den’s popcorn coordinator when you reach $200.  SHOW N SELL SALES COUNT TOWARD THE $200 TOTAL.

We have three Show N Sells this Saturday and our final two on September 27.  We have a few openings for scouts and adults.  Please click on the links below and sign up.  Though individual dens are leading each Show N Sell, open slots are available to all scouts.
