As our Popcorn Queen Jennifer Rodrique mentioned in a Pack email recently, we’re almost halfway through our Popcorn Sales period! Hopefully every single one of our boys is having a great time getting out and meeting new people. Remember, people look forward to seeing our Scouts this time of year, and it’s really terrific seeing the boys develop confidence and presentation skills!
In addition to the door prizes at the October Pack Meeting for boys who’ve sold 10, 20, or 30 units of popcorn, we’re adding a fun new event this year. Boys who sell at least 20 units will be entered into a special raffle to mash a pie into the face of their Den Leader. Scouts who sell 30 units or more will get the chance at “creaming” Jennifer Rodrique. And every boy who sells 50 or more units automatically gets to shove a pie in my face! Believe me, I’ll sit there all night long if we get enough boys selling some good numbers!
Also, Jennifer mentioned that there’s a special contest going on right now in the Council. The Pack that fills the most sheets from Wednesday, October 11th to Friday, October 21st, will get a Pack-only BB-Gun and Archery Training event, including lunch, at Treasure Valley! This is a really cool event that I’d love to have our boys win. If you’re close to filling those sheets, now’s the time to do it – and make sure you get them to Alison Specter by 3pm on the 21st! You can email an image to her at alison firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to her at (508)-752-3047.
Here’s where we stack up against other units in the Council on sales – the boys are doing an OUTSTANDING job! Let’s keep the pressure on, and win that contest!!
We enjoyed a great hike today at Upton State Park. The Whistling Cave Trail was nice and steep and even though there were parts of the trail that were pretty soggy, it was fun finding our way over the streams without getting our boots wet!
The boys were credited with 3 miles today. The Hike Log page has been updated with this information.
