2005 FALL POPCORN SALE
Are you ready for the excitement that the Popcorn Sales brings to your unit?
We will again offer our same product mix as we did in 2004, plus back by popular demand, we are adding a 2.5 lb Popping Tin to this years order form.
Trail’s End has greatly expanded their prize offerings for 2005. Scouts can now choose from 100’s of great prizes. In addition, Scouts can choose from Coleman or Wal-Mart gift cards!
SALES SUPPORT LOCAL SCOUTING
In 2005, more than $173,000 was given back to Packs and Troops within Southwest Michigan. Was your unit one? Attend your District Kickoff to receive all the information to make this year’s sale the best ever.
Does all of this – great products, great prizes, and funds to support your unit – sound good to you and your unit? What a better way for your unit to raise funds. In a recent survey, (1) 83% of households have never been asked to buy popcorn from a Scout, (2) those who did made their decision based on the child at the door or the youth organization, and (3) they believe that Scouting is one of the top youth organizations to support in fundraising.
BONUS COMMISSION IS BACK
Back again for 2005! Your unit has the potential to earn a 4% bonus commission again in 2005. The requirements for earning the bonus commission are as follows:
When a unit sales increase by at least 25% over the 2004 results, then the 4% bonus is paid on the 25% increase only, not on the total amount sold.
