Are you ready to Party?
2014 Kick off Party – there are prizes!     

We want to remind everyone of the extra commission opportunities through Camp Masters.  First prize in each category is $1000 in bonus commission!  Second prize in each category is $500 in bonus commission!  Plus, every selling Scout in the winning units will win a $25 Walmart Gift Card!

Kick up your popcorn sales and get your Scouts excited!  And possibly win extra commission and gift cards!  How does that sound?  Camp Masters is having 3 different contests this year the Scouts can enter with their Troops or Packs.

  • Kick up the Event – Show off your well prepared room!
  • Kick up the Training – Show off how you prepare your Scouts for sales!
  • Kick up the Fun – Show off how fun your party is!
You can click on UNIT KICK OFF CONTEST to get the rules for the contest.  You can also see how to get the app.  Good Luck! As of this week only 10 entries nationwide have been submitted!  Go for it!  All entries need to be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. November 1, 2014.

A few more opportunities to keep in mind…

Fill It-Up Contest

During the popcorn sale Scouts will have the chance to enter a weekly drawing for great prizes!  To enter, make a copy of the Scout’s completely filled order form and either email a copy to 326popcorn@scouting.org, fax it (402-431-0444) or drop it off at the Scout Center (12401 West Maple Road).  The previous weeks order forms must be in the office by 9:00 a.m. Monday to qualify for that week’s drawing.

 

Online Order Contest

Scouts who sell $50 or more each week online will be entered into a weekly drawing.  To enter all a Scout needs to do is sell $50 or more in popcorn online.  For every additional $50 sold online, the Scout will get an additional name in the drawing.

 

Popcorn Ball

If a Scout sells $1000 or more of popcorn, he and a parent will be able to attend one of the two popcorn balls.  Creighton Bluejays Basketball game on November 23rd or Sioux City Musketeers on December 13th.  Registration deadline on both of these events is November 6th so be sure to register right after sales are over!

 

Nebraska Experience

If a Scout sells $1500 or more of popcorn, he and a parent will be able to attend the Nebraska Experience.  Game date and time TBA.
