that we are hosting to raise money for our trip to Savannah in June
2015. Attached you will find the informational flyer along with troop
registration form. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come Zumba. Girl
Scouts, siblings, friends and families. I've secured insurance to cover
the non-registered folks that attend. So the more the merrier.
The girl scouts that attend can earn the following patches (we will hand
out the Dancer badge at the event but leaders should bring the red daisy
Daisies --their courageous and strong (red) petal
Brownies - Dancer badge
Juniors - complete one of the requirements for the Practice with a
Cadette, Seniors and Ambassadors - I didn't have access to these badge
requirements, but I'm sure you can find badge requirements that this
event will satisfy.

Fall Product Training
Attention all troops!
Please make sure to sign up for Fall Product Training. All troops that plan to participate in the program this year must have an adult take this training.
There are three locations in Brevard. However, your Service Unit chair, Elizabeth Swanke, will be at Ascension Catholic. Please let her know your troop number and number of girls so that she can have the paperwork ready beforehand. If you are not attending the training at Ascension, then let Elizabeth know this so that you can make other arrangements.
Please note that you will need to have a CORS account in order to register for this training. You will also need to be registered for the upcoming school year and have a current background check in order to be the troop chair. If you cannot register for whatever reason, please let Elizabeth know.
Fall Product sales are not mandatory* but are a great way to get some money into the troop treasury at the beginning of the year. Products are purchased individually so you never have to worry about selling the extras needed to fill a case. Online QSP sales are also available for those who prefer emailing friends and family.
*Troops must participate in Fall Products and Cookie sales in order to do additional troop fundraising.

Got Cookies? Additional Cookie Booths Available
Do you still have more cookies than you can handle?
Do you wish that cookie season would go on forever and forever?
Good news: Your wishes have come true!
What this means is that our Service Unit has secured the second weekend of April to host cookie booths at Menchie's at 1270 N. Wickham Rd. (on the corner of Wickham and Sarno).
This is your chance to get rid of any extra cookies you have left!
What if you're all out of cookies, but still wish that you could keep selling? Council has cookies left and is willing to fullfill your reorder needs. You can put in a request for cookies by the case or even box!
The best part is that you will still get profit and recognitions for these sales!
So if Susie just missed getting her stuffed Red Panda, or your troop needs $50 more for all the exciting end-pf-the-year activities, this is a great opportunity to make it happen!
Don't miss out on your chance, go to the Booth Scheduler and reserve your slot ASAP!
Cookie Transfers Among Troops
Transferring Cookies Between Troops
Are you left with a few cookies too many or a few cookies too little? That's where Troop to Troop Transfers come into play.
Already Know Whom You Want to Trade With?
BOTH troops need to fill out this Google Form. Once both troops have completed this form, Katie will make the trade occur in SNAP. Please allow 24-48 hours for SNAP to reflect this change.
The troops will also need to complete a Troop Transfer Form. This form needs to be signed by both troops and cut in half. Each troop will turn in their copy with the Final Paperwork. Your Final Paperwork will be considered incomplete if you do not have a paper Troop Transfer Form for every trade you made.
Once you have completed both the electronic and paper forms, then you are all set.
What If You Need More Cookies or Want to Get Rid of Some?
You can use this Google document to let people know what extra cookies you have. (Make sure that you fill in the contact information correctly or you might miss out when people can't reach you!) Looking for cookies? Check out the form to see what troops are trying to get rid of, then contact them to let them know what you need. Make sure to be clear about whether you would like to make a trade or buy them from the other troop.
Once you have the deals of the trade all figured out, arrange a time to meet and make the trade. Check out the steps under the previous section to ensure that you fill out all of the required forms (the Online Google Form and the Paper Troop Transfer Form.) There's just one extra step: go back into the Extra Cookies Google document and change your numbers! You don't want to misinform people that you still have 12 Thin Mints if you just traded them with another troop!
