Popcorn Tips #1

Scouts (and Parents):Popcorn selling is really easy - and the boys have fun.  Here are Key Tips for making it work:

1) Start early (September, not November!)

2) Get your paper sheet and keep it handy in the Kitchen

3) Walk up and down your street in your Scout Uniform (75% of homes will buy!)

4) Set up and Keep an eye on your Personal Incentive Target (for the monthly prizes!)
- Figure an average sale at $15
- Targets:  Super Hero: $1000+; Top 10 Scouts: $500+; Awesome Scout: $300

5) Ask friends and family to buy on-line - or you can do it for them!

6) Attend the A&P and Shop Rite days - sell with your den, in uniforms!

Intrepid Air and Space Musuem Overnight- Sat. Nov.12, 2011

Spend the night on an aircraft carrier docked in the Hudson River! On Saturday night November 12th we will be doing an overnight on the Intrepid. We will have dinner on the ship, followed by guided tours, a scavenger hunt on the flight deck, rides on a 3D simulator, snacks, and a movie. We will sleep on cots on the hangar deck among the aircraft and exhibits. In the morning we will have breakfast on board and then depart around 8am. Cost is $99.00 per person and each scout will get a goodie bag which includes a t-shirt and a patch. Space is limited so we are limiting it to scouts and their parent or guardian for now. The trip is filling up fast so if you are interested in joining us please sign up and make payment as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the trip or how to submit payment, please contact John Gerraughty at johngerraughty@gmail.com or at 914-725-3277.

What is the Thunderbird Games?  It's when packs and their families from all over Westchester and Putnam Counties converge on Croton Point Park to enjoy an afternoon of fun games, activities and demonstrations.  Last year, the boys got to climb a rope bridge, use a flint to light steel wool (under supervision, of course!), race toy boats using lung power, race boy-powered chariots, use stilts, and shoot balloons with slingshots, among many other things!  There will be vendors selling food/drinks and Scout stuff.

When:  Saturday, October 15th
Opening ceremony:  11:30 a.m.
Games open:  12 noon until 4 p.m.
Cost:  $12/person (kids under 6 free); if you prepay you get a cool patch!
Location:  Croton Point Park (click on Thunderbird Games Guide for Units for directions and more info)

Scouts, please wear your uniform.  It will be breezy so everyone should have a light jacket.

Juan Roman
6 Thomas Lane.
Scarsdale, NY  10583

Any questions?  Please contact your den leader.
