Popcorn Show and Sells

Greetings Troop 68 Scouts and Families!

 

Based on some calls I made today, we have some Show and Sell locations available for our popcorn vending this weekend, beginning Friday night (9/14), through Sunday (9/16).

 

  • Chips Restaurant – Route 111, across from Home Depot.  We are welcome to sell outside the restaurant by the front door, Saturday and Sunday 8-12 noon.
  • Trumbull Center Mobile – corner of White Plains Road and Daniels Farm Road.  In front of the convenience store, Saturday and Sunday.  We pick the time.
  • Denali Trumbull – an outdoor clothing, footware, hiking, and camping store in the mall.   The manager is a local guy, big supporter of Scouts.  We can set up in his store Friday night 6-9, or at different times over the weekend.  He has a table we can use.

 

Send me an email of interest for your preferred time and place, and I’ll build a schedule and confirm everything with the store managers.   Once you’ve booked a time slot, I’ll put together a package of merchandise, sales sheets, and handy cash envelopes.  We can arrange to meet at the location or you can pick up the items at my house.  I'll be out of town most of Saturday, so we'll need to work around that.

 

There should be at least 1 adult and 1 scout at each sales session.  I would recommend 2 hours maximum sales time per scout per day.  If you’ve got a portable table and some scout-related banners, etc, that would be great.

 

Don’t feel limited by the locations I’ve offered.  If you’ve got one in mind, run it by me and I’ll help arrange it. 

 

Thanks.

September Campout

For our September camp out we will be camping at Sequassen on September 21-23 and spending Saturday afternoon at Catamount Aerial Adventure Park.  Since we don’t know at this time if we will have enough people participating at Catamount to make the group rate, are collecting a $25 deposit from everyone planning to participate.  I need to get everyone’s deposit by our September 14th meeting.  Bill Mayeran will be collecting deposits at tonight’s meeting.

 

The rates below include the fee’s for catamount plus the cost of our campsite and lunch which will be provided for scouts and adults at Catamount.  Scouts will still need to pay the regular $15.00 for grub to their patrol.  The adult fees below include adult grub and the camp fees. 

 

We will need adults to help drive scouts from Sequassen to Catamount.  For adults who would like to camp with us but who do not wish to participate at Catamount, the cost is $25.00 per person for grub and camping fees.

 

                                                WITHOUT DISCOUT         WITH DISCOUNT

Scouts Age 12 & older     $63.00/person                   $48.00/person

Scouts Age 10-11               $57.00/person                   $42.00/person

Adults                                   $73.00/person                  $58.00/person
