Our Scouts did such an amazing job selling popcorn that Scouts got to throw a pie for each $300 of popcorn sold. He could throw it at his choice of Cubmaster Woody or Assistant Cubmaster Charlie. The Scouts love this night, and look forward to it each year. Luckily we have some good sports who volunteer to be in the hot seat.
