I Made My Goal!

I had another big goal this year and with your help, I was able to achieve it!  I reached just over $10,000 in Cub Scout popcorn sales for the 2012 Fall Sale.  This is my 4th year as being #1 in Gamehaven Council.  This year the Council started a $10,000 VIP Club and I earned my way in.  I got some pretty cool rewards t00 – a club jacket, a club hat, a special trophy, and best of all…A ROBOTICS LEGO SET!!!  It was a surprise and I was SO excited when I saw it.

Gamehaven Council had a special party for all the boys in the Council that sold over $1,000 at Chuck E. Cheese’s.  It was fun to celebrate and hang out with my Cub Scout Friends.

Thanks again for all your support and stay tuned for other updates to come.


Selling at Walmart With My Den

Selling at Walmart With My Den


Each year Pack 498 sells popcorn at the doors of Walmart north in Rochester, MN.  We have a great time together working to meet the big goal for the Pack so we can earn the Popcorn Pa-3-Za party!  This is a super fun event that my parents organize to reward the Pack for doing such and awesome job at popcorn sales.  The top sellers get treated like rock stars!  I am going to do my part to help us earn this awesome party once again.  And with my Den’s help, we can do it!  Thank you Walmart north for your support of Scouting!!

Thanks From the Ronald McDonald House

Thank You Front

Thank You Inside

The Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, MN sent me a thank you for donating the gift cards on April 27th.  I’m sure they will put them to good use.

Donating Gift Cards to Ronald McDonald House

When I received my Top Sales award from Gamehaven Council, they also gave me two $50 gift cards to donate to a non-profit organization in the 7-county area that Gamehaven serves.  It had to be an organization that helps kids.  I wanted the money to help kids who have cancer so I chose the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester.

The Popcorn Pa-2-Za Party is finally here! Our Pack had to sell at least $50,000 as a team to earn a super cool party and we did it!!  We had lunch from CiCi’s pizza and then a fun awards ceremony.  Afterwards a PARTY BUS picked us up to take us to The Waterpark Of America!!!!!!!!! We had soooo much fun!

#1 Popcorn Salesman in Gamehaven Council

I got invited to the 2012 Gamehaven Council Annual Banquet to receive my 3rd #1 Salesman in the Council award!  It was a fun night and I love being in the spotlight.  I got to help with the flag ceremony and give out top sales awards for the three Districts in the Council and the #1 Pack in the Council.  The #1 Pack was a fun award to give out because it was to my dad and for my Pack – #498!  Our Pack was actually #6 in the entire nation!  I even had fun meeting a new friend and playing music on water glasses.

I’m #16!

Number 16!

Click HERE to see the listing of the top sellers of Trail’s End popcorn in 2010.  I just found out I am #5 in the Central Region and #16 in the entire country and I’m so excited!  That is out of approximately two and a half million Scouts!  Not only that, but because I was a Regional finisher, I earned an additional 6% of my sales from Trail’s End to be put in my college scholarship account.  Thanks, Trail’s End!
