Special Delivery At Winter Park

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 6, 2010 – 6:24 am

Click here to view a video of the event.

Door-to-door sales of items such as girl scout cookies or boy scout popcorn is a regular thing for many Americans, including NFL head coaches. At least it was for Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress last week.

A scout from the Northern Star Council Boy Scouts of America and chaperone visited Childress in his office at Winter Park last week to deliver a box of popcorn, which the head coach had presumably ordered just as so many other Americans do each year when the girl scouts and boy scouts appear knocking at the door.

One aspect of purchasing popcorn from the Boy Scouts of America that likely hits close to home for Childress is that customers have the option of donating product to military men and women; Childress has a son currently serving in the armed forces. I’m guessing Childress checked the box on the bottom of the order form with no hesitation to donate some popcorn to the men and women bravely serving our country.

If you’re interested in purchasing Trail’s End popcorn via the Northern Star Council Boy Scouts of America, click here. Or you can call this number: 651-254-9147.

A few other interesting facts…
– The 1st Boy Scout popcorn sale was in 1980. Evansville, Indiana Scouts sold Trail’s End Popcorn for the first time.
– The Northern Star Council is comprised of scouts in the Twin Cities Metro area, 21 counties in central MN and 4 counties in Western Wisconsin.
– More than 70% of the purchase price goes to fund local Scouting programs.
– In 2010, on average across the Trail’s End line, consumers will get 20% more product than before.

    I will say this much–nice job on the compelling headline given the current rumors swirling about a deal to bring Moss back. This blog is sure to get plenty of hits today. Perhaps this is a filler post?

    Thank you coach Childress for supporting Boy Scouts and the military families! You are awesome and we met you once before and you signed a football for my son’s 12th birthday and we could not beleive how great you are to the Minnesota kids! Way to go, you are an awesome man! We are so proud to have you as a coach a role model to our kids!

    Coach Childress

    Thank you for being the man you are. This sends a tremendously positive message to people. Support the scouts-it molds boys into great Americans and they will shape our nation one day. Support the military- it keeps us free.

    Support the Vikings and Coach Childress -you are the right man for the job.

    I guess there are some people out there that don’t know anything about scouting and how the program helps young boys, It’s not just about popcorn.
    Maybe Moss could make a 3 year contract with Boy Scouts and give them a few bucks then they wouldn’t have to sell popcorn!

    In startling turn of events, Coach Childress has cancelled his popcorn order and claimed there is no reason except it’s in the best interest of the team. He will be trying out pretzels to replace the highly anticipated popcorn

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve
    either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it
    is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help reduce
    content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate

    Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other
    websites? I have a blog based upon on the same
    subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours
    lately, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all
    website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web will likely
    be a lot more helpful than ever before.
