Select Your Popcorn Prizes by Nov 15!

posted Nov 10, 2014, 8:25 AM by Pack 841 Webmaster

All scouts that sold any popcorn are entitled to pick either a Patch or a Pin AND a prize according to the sales level reached. 

For example, if your Scout sold $350 in popcorn, then he may select any prize under Level 5 for $250 in sales or any combination of prizes from lower sales levels not to exceed the $250 sales level.  Council Prize levels are determined by Council sales and any direct cash donations considered for Pack prizes should not be included.  Please email Popcorn@Pack 841.com with your prize selection or if you don't know your Scout's final sales total.  This information is due no later than November 15 otherwise prize selection will default to the Surprise Grab Bag for your Scout's prize level. Each Grab Bag will contain 50% more value than the other prizes within that level. Grab Bags for each level will be identical.  Click here to view the Prize Flyer from Denver Area Council

PRIZE SELECTION DEFAULTS - Prize defaults will be given to those scouts that do not send their prize of choice information. A patch will be granted and the following defaults will be assigned, depending on sales levels reached:
Level 2 - Prize #1
Level 3 - Prize #5
Level 4 - Prize #10
Level 5 - Prize #14
Level 6 - Prize # 18
Level 7 - Prize #22
Level 8 - Prize #26
Level 9 - Prize #30

You and your customers can purchase a “military donation” of popcorn. The product is given to U.S. troops, their families, and veterans organizations. Free will donations can also be accepted as a gift to the Pack to support our Scouts and Pack activities. 

Receipts for military donations and gifts are available for you to fill out at the time donation is offered.  Providing a receipts is the responsibility of the scout.  Click on the link above to download receipts.


Please say "Thank you"

posted Aug 31, 2014, 3:35 PM by Pack 841 Webmaster   [ updated Aug 31, 2014, 4:24 PM ]

Please remember to say "Thank you" for every popcorn sale.  Use these Thank You Receipts to include with your popcorn deliveries.  Follow-up cards are also helpful if you need to come back to deliver popcorn. Your customers will be impressed and more likely to help you again next year.  Be sure to keep a copy of your order form before turning it in to the Pack.  These should be the first customers you visit next year! 

Happy Selling!


Character Counts!

Activities like selling popcorn benefit every scout.

Scouts learn about responsibility and accountability; the importance of earning their way to success; and the value of setting goals and achieving them.  Scouts have an opportunity to practice skills-for-life (socially, personally, behaviorally) which helps them become better citizens and they learn how to best represent themselves and the Scouting organization as a whole.
