  • 18. Table Top Sales Information
  • 19. Remember the Girl Scout Law <ul><li>I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout. </li></ul><ul><li>When selling cookies, we expect that members and representatives of Troop 2702 will honor the Law in ALL ways. </li></ul>
  • 20. TABLE TOP SALES 1 <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cookies NOW! (January 7, 2011) offers Scouts the opportunity to pick up cookies early and get a head start. Individual Scouts may arrange their own direct to customer sales following their Cookies NOW! pick up. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  • 21. TABLE TOP SALES 2 <ul><ul><ul><li>Table Top Sales are organized by the Troop </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Table Top Sales require a minimum of two (2) Scouts to be held. If there are not two (2) Scouts registered at least 72 hours prior to the table top, it will be cancelled and any registered Scout may check out cookies from the cupboard and arrive at the location to host an individual sale. All cookies will be the responsibility of the Scout and will be included in her cookie count. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 22. TABLE TOP SALES 3 <ul><ul><ul><li>Table Top Sales are posted on the Troop’s Facebook events calendar due to last year’s “raiding” of our Troop calendar. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Troop leadership may add additional dates. All Table Top Sales sign ups are first come/first reserved. Please check the Troop Facebook page about the most up-to-date times &amp; locations. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Scouts who make initial contact for a Table Top will be given FIRST PRIORITY and CHOICE for time slot. (In other words, if you bring the contact to Troop leadership, you earn the right to choose your time slot.) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 23. TABLE TOP SALES 4 <ul><ul><ul><li>Cookie/money discrepancies will be the responsibility of the Scout(s) and her parent or guardian. The Troop does not cover cookie/money discrepancies. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>There will be NO cookie sign outs or returns at Table Tops. (Nothing that requires an M-3 will occur at a Table Top sale!) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Scouts MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian AT ALL TIMES. (If you leave the table top, your Scout leaves with you.) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Siblings are NOT allowed at Table Top sales. Please make alternate child care arrangements. </li></ul></ul></ul>

They will also be responsible for COUNTING all table top funds before they will be excused. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>At change of shift, inventory count MUST be taken and recorded. Any shift with a discrepancy will be the shift held responsible for the discrepancy. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 25. Table Top Tips
  • 26. TABLE TOP SALES TIPS <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Successful table top (direct to customer) sales include: </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Scouts who have eaten before they arrive or who have a light snack to eat during the table top </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Scouts who are well rested and ready to promote cookie sales </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Scouts who are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions (hats, mittens, layers of clothing, double socks, boots or other weather appropriate footwear, windbreaker, rain gear, etc.) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Scouts who are energetic and enthusiastic Note: Scouts who are not actively participating in cookie sales will be asked to leave and will be replaced by other Scouts. Our previous years’ sales tracking proves that Scouts who are sitting DO NOT sell cookies…this lowers your Scout’s opportunities to earn Cookie Bucks for camp and recognitions. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 27. TABLE TOP SALES TIPS 2 <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Successful table top (direct to customer) sales include: (continued…) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Tracking cookie sales as they occur. Attempting to match money with cookies or “back counting” throws off the cookie to money count. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Breaking down case boxes and save them if that flavor’s case is emptied . These are used to cross check total sales. Please do not throw away empty cases. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Separating cookie money and Troop to Troop donations. All “keep the change” requests should be placed in the Troop to Troop donations can. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 28. What Else Haven’t I Asked? (aka Other Important Information)
  • 29. STORAGE <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Store cookies where they aren’t exposed to: </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High heat (NO garages or cars!) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Direct sunlight </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dampness (use cardboard under cookies if stored on concrete) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Potential water exposure – heavy rain, freezing pipes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strong odors – moth balls, cedar chips, gasoline </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ants – it won’t take them long to find the cookies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dogs and young siblings who love cookies! </li></ul></ul>
  • 30. TROOP CUPBOARDS <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For respecting the Troop Leadership’s time with their families </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For understanding that the Troop Leadership also has Scouts who are participating in cookie sales </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For calling ahead to make sure that the Troop cupboard is available </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For making an appointment to pick up cookies from the Troop cupboard </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For calling to let the Troop cupboard know if you are running late or will not make your appointment </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>THANK YOU
