COBS: Booth Sales by GSEM
Council Organized Booths Sales (COBS) include sale locations such as MBTA stations, malls and other high-traffic venues. Troops can select up to 30 COBS choices with a maximum award of three spots... and this year, we've uncovered some additional opportunities that are available through the COBS lottery system. There's also a list of town booth coordinators so you can network with others and share tips about specific locations -- feel free to contact Derek Bennett with questions.
Don't forget to send us your scheduled booth sales so that we can upload them to SNAP -- we want customers to know where you're selling cookies!
