Scouting Icons
These assorted icon files can be utilized to replace the icon shortcut on your desktop or utilize them on your web site. Ever wonder how sites like ours get the icon to appear when you save our site to your favorites? Grab the icon you want to utilize, rename it as favicon.ico and put that file in your root directory (i.e. www.yoursite.com/favicon.ico). Then when someone puts your site in their favorites or creates a shortcut to your site on their desktop, the standard icon will be replaced with your special one. Contents is a .zip format file and includes all the above icons.

This script is simple and Java based. Just change two attributes to reflect your email address and paste into any page.

 

2012 Popcorn Tracker
Scout Popcorn Spreadsheet Version 1.0 - (8/15/2012)

This Microsoft Excel based Scout Popcorn Tracking spreadsheet was developed to help Troops and Packs organize and track their popcorn fundraising. By inputting the sales by product and by scout it will give you a breakdown of cases/containers needed at the distribution center, cases/containers for each den, total sales, total profit and a report of the top sellers.

One of the biggest problems we've seen with Scout Popcorn sales is problems with the math at the various stages of ordering and distribution, this sheet will take the human element out of the arithmetic.

  • Tracks sales for up to 120 Scouts
  • Tracks traditional Take Order sales as well as support for Take-N-Sell sales and Show and Sell sales for each Scout
  • Tracks up to 17 popcorn products your Council may offer.
  • Customizable products, pricing and profit margin depending on your particular Council's program.
  • This solution is not sanctioned or authorized by the BSA or Trails End Popcorn, we just think it's very handy.
  • Requires Microsoft ExcelŽ - Version 2007 or higher
  • Download is compressed in .zip format, utilize your favorite unzip utility to extract the file.
  • Please note there are a couple of Macros in this spreadsheet. These are there to make some recalculations easier on the user. You must allow these Macros to execute for the spreadsheet to be fully functional. There is nothing "evil" embedded in the spreadsheet . . . Scouts Honor!
  • This sheet is free to use as you see fit. Please report any issues with the sheet. We present this sheet "as is" and do not make custom modifications for your specific needs. You can choose to use it or not.
