Win Cash Prizes on Facebook for Your Troop

Wouldn't it be great to win extra money for your troop.  Follow the link and win! Imagine what you can do.  I think  I would use the money for our upcoming camping trip.  It would make the cost to the girls a little less and everyone could go.  It is fun to dream!

Girl Scout Cookie Rally at the Chicago Wolves Game

We attended the Chicago Wolves hockey game and rally last night.  The snow storm made it very difficult to get there but we made it.  There were thousands of other girl scouts in attendance.  Before the game there were activities for the girls. Speakers were on hand to encourage the girls to sell their cookies.  They gave an award to a scout that sold 3,000 boxes of cookies last year.  That is a pretty amazing feat.  During the game there were girls scouts everywhere in the stand waving green pom-poms.  The hockey players even came on the jumbo screens and were eating girl scout cookies.  What a great way to get excited about cookie time.  The wolves won the game 2-1, a great way to end the night.  Check out a rally night in your area, it is really fun!

I-pads for Girl Scouts

We are bringing our I-pads to the meeting on Friday so we can start the World Thinking Day project. Our country is Polynesia and there are a lot of Islands we can choose from. I think we ended up with a great country this year! This is the first time we will try working on I-pads for a meeting, even the girl scouts have to keep up with technology.

World Thinking Day-Polynesia

Our troop wanted Australia but we didn't get it, we ended up getting Polynesia instead. This week we are having a meeting to start preparing.  I did a little research and e-mailed a few countries tourism bureaus. So far I heard from Hawaii, they are supplying the troop with pencils, magnets and bracelets.  The New Zealand convention bureau had a nice map that we can order.
  The Tahitian tourist information contact is going to send us posters and 200 pens.  I think this is a great start.  The girls will be so excited when they find out.
