Everyone knows it is important to have a kickoff to your popcorn sale. Kickoffs are great when they have a theme and well-scripted. Fortunately, many Units have decided to record their kickoff and post them online. Here are a few examples from Units around the country.
Pack 95 – Tuscarora Council – 2013
They used a superheroes theme and interviewed many of their favorite superheroes.
Pack 137 – Monmouth Council – 2011
While no actual video, it does have a slide show of their Mad Science theme popcorn kickoff.
Pack 81 – Valley Forge Council – 2009
This not only includes the presentation, but a commentary on how they set up the room prior to the kickoff.
Pack 184 – Great Smoky Mountain Council – 2009
Great demonstration of games centered around popcorn
Troop 367 – Heart of America Council – 2009
Popcorn Man helps Boy Scouts learn how to sell popcorn. Videos like this can be used toward Moviemaking Merit Madge.
Pack 961 – National Capital Area Council – 2008
Very well scripted program which kept all the Cub Scouts interested.
Pack 439 – Inland Empire Council – 2007
This is one of my all-time favorites. It is a Mission Impossible Theme.
In 2008, they had an Indiana Jones Theme.
Have fun with your kickoffs and good luck on the popcorn sale!
