2017 POPCORN KICKOFF
If you have attended the popcorn kickoff in the past get ready for some big changes. In the past our kickoff has focused on the unit Kernels. This year we will be trying something different. Our sales force, our Scouts, will be invited to attend a training on August 2nd. All registered families have been sent an email asking if they would like to attend. The kickoff will be held at one of our sponsors, Sky Zone. To accommodate the greatest number of Scouts we will be offering 3 sessions, 5-7, 6-8 and 7-9. Spaces are limited and will filled on a first come first served basis. The first hour will be a round robin training. The training will cover Safety Rules, How to make a Sales Pitch, How to Create your Own Personal Trails End Site, What Prizes we are offering and how to earn them and samples from our new Vender as you learn about our new products. Scouts must be accompanied by an adult to participate. If you have multiple youth one parent may be with both.
Once a family has signed up they will receive an email back with their assigned time. Families should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their assigned time to check in.
At check-in each Scout will be given a passport. At each station they will be acknowledged that they were there and then when the passport is filled the Scouts will have an hour in the park. Sky Zone will generously be offering a special deal for families. Any sibling of a Scout will be able to bounce at a reduced fee of $12.00, plus $2.00 for socks for the full 2 hours.
Also, there will be an additional training for new Kernels and those who just want to increase their knowledge of the sale. We will be having that training Wednesday August 9th at the Scout Office in the Blair room. All registered kernels will be sent an invitation to the event. Packets will be available for pickup after August 2nd at the Council Service Center if you would just like to get your materials and start selling.
