Popcorn Kernel Needed

Posted by admin on Aug 14 2019 - 8:34am
We need someone with good organizational skills and the ability to manage big spreadsheets to pull this off.  Popcorn is already on order for our first delivery in late August.
 
For more information, please refer to the popcorn sales page on the website.
 
We sell popcorn to raise money for things that we do not include normally in our camping and high adventure fees.  This includes, but not limited to:
  • all the bling (awards, badges) given to Scouts at courts of honor
  • repair and replacement of tents which we loan to Scouts.  Each costs nearly $500.  Instead we could easily charge that as a one time thing and they'd have to buy a tent, so borrowing is a big plus, and our tents are pretty nice -- and everyone having the same tent promotes consistency and projects to the world that Troop 755 is a top notch unit
  • Trailer maintenance and repair:  We have three trailers that require wheels, tires, brakes, lights, and other routine maintenance.
  • miscellaneous things at camps
  • fuel for drivers.  We are going to be more fair to drivers of scouts, and those who pull trailers as the fuel costs are high when you tow.

This is a great opportunity to get involved and support your troop.  You will be busy from late August until mid-November ... but the rest of the year, this position is a breeze!
