Does this seem fair to you? Have you heard of this happening in your area?
Not only do three or four troops (out of 100-200 in our county - which is only part of our council) get to have a non stop cookie booth. those troops have been singled out for local news coverage.
I understand that any troop could probably go out and do the same thing, but to me it just seems like well-off troops with connections becoming more well-off. It doesn't seem like a level playing ground in a county that is over run with GS troops and not enough booths to go around to begin with, with losing CVS and most Winn-Dixies this year.
Personally as a daisy troop we did most of our own sales in pre-orders and only doing one booth for experience. But I know troops that could really be hurt by this.
I see this exploding next year once everyone here gets wind of it, which will only encourage me further to push pre-order, something our county just started this year.
