Cookie Con Caution Called

GS Wyo

The Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming are warning residents in the two states of a cookie con that is under way in advance of the scheduled cookie sale later this month.  According to Council Spokesperson Anna Paige, there have been reports in parts of Wyoming of callers offering Girl Scout cookies and taking money in advance of the February 11th sale so that those placing orders with them are assured of getting the cookies they want.  Those receiving such calls should hang up and only buy Girl Scout cookies directly from a Girl Scout.  However, Paige says girls do not take money in advance for orders and the people involved in the scam do not represent Girl Scouting.  Paige says the Girl Scout Cookie Program empowers girls to decide how to spend part of the proceeds generated through their business activity, whether it’s for a community service project, trip, or a unique goal designed by the girls. During the 2011 Cookie Program, Girl Scouts throughout Montana and Wyoming earned money to travel with their troops,     paid memberships for the 2012 Girl Scout year and credit toward attending Girl Scout camp.

  • Show me a line, I’ll show you a wind knot - August 26, 2014
    My fly line tippets never last me very long. Early in the season, I’ll put a new wind knot in a tippet on every cast. I’ve actually gotten two knots on a single cast before. I don’t even know how that’s possible, but I’ve done it. I’ve gotten wind knots in my leader, too, and […]
  • I’ll take a full-size truck, please - August 25, 2014
    I mentioned last week that I’ve had the opportunity for an extended test drive of a Nissan Titan, and I compared it to the smaller Nissan Frontier. The Frontier’s smaller size gives it a little better ability to get through tight spots and over rough roads, but I still like a full-size truck for hunting […]
