Hey Scouts (and parents), it’s once again time to get excited and SELL POPCORN!!!!!
Let's make it happen! I can arrange for "show n sell" time slots at the Food center again. We can ask at Gillroys', gas stations etc. Let me know WHERE YOU want to set up a table and sell and/or if you plan to do the door-to-door sales.
Earn money for the scout account! You can use it to pay for dues, scout stuff from the scout store, camp fees, anything scout related!!

Although there are many ways to sell, SHOW AND SELL has proven to be the best sales tool that Scouting has used, 70% of the people you ask will purchase your product if you can deliver immediately. If YOU are planning on participating in SHOW AND SELL this year, PLEASE let me know and we can set up a time for you to pick up your product..
All Show and Sell Product taken and not sold MUST be returned to me with any money by: October 25th meeting... I do ask if you have product and do not feel you will be able to sell it, please give the Kernel a call as we may be able to get it sold by another Scout before the deadline.. If we don’t return by then the Troop must pay for any left over popcorn L
All Take Orders must also be turned in by October 25th at the Troop Meeting.
Popcorn orders for Take Order will be ready for pickup the Kernel's house on November 12th/13th or I will bring it to the meeting on November 15th for you to pick up if you can‘t get to my house.. But please make an effort.
You will have 10 days to deliver and get your final money turned in to Kernel by November 29th.
