COOKIE UPDATE

New this year:  as a Troop we have to order our cookies BEFORE taking customer orders.  They are calling this the debut of "Cookies Now!" in which girls have cookies in their hands on Cookie Go Day.  


Important Dates
January 10th:  Need to enter our Initial Troop Order -- this is for individual girls to sell - not necessarily counting what they will see during Cookie Booths.  
January 24:  Cookie Booth Scheduler Opens -- we will try to get 2 Cookie Booths again this year - more if people want it.
February 3rd:  Pick up initial cookie order (I will be getting these and then asking parents to p/u their daughters cookies at my house asap)
February 5:  COOKIE GO DAY -- girls will have cookies with them in order to bring out when they go sell.  Or simply take orders and arrange to deliver later.  
February 18 - March 20:  Cookie Booths -- our specific days & locations to be determined 


We will hand-out Order Forms, Prize info, etc. at January's meeting; however, this date is after the date that initial order is due  SO...............please advise what you prefer: 

1)  Hold a specific Cookie Meeting at my house on Sunday, January 9th/2:00 - 3:00.  I would facilitate individual girl cookie goal setting; brainstorming techniques for selling; talking about girls perhaps selling in groups; review of prizes; deciding if girls want to set troop goal with an event s/a water-park  or similar if they meet their goal, etc - OR 

2)  I will place order based on last year's averages and assume a goal of 100 boxes per girl -- or will order a specific amount for your daughter per your request.  I can send you individualized emails with your daughter's info from last year.  If a girl sells more, we'll have to re-order; if a girl can't sell 100, we'll have on-hand for cookie booth and/or shuffle amongst troop.  


Please advise

Thanks
