Popcorn Mystery Houses

By Devin Hartley

Good afternoon. I wanted to send out a quick reminder that the 5 Mystery Houses are identified and ready to go. They are located in the following general areas:
Black Eagle – North side of the river and east of 9th St.
South of Sunny Side – bordered by 19th Ave. S. to 33rd Ave. S. and 19th St. S. to 14th St. S.
West Side – north of Hickory Swing Golf course, west of 3rd St SW, south of NW Bypass and east of Vaughn Rd.
North East Great Falls – bordered by 57th St. N. to 38th St. N. and 2nd Ave. N. to 10th Ave. N.
Central Great Falls – bordered by 10th Ave. S. to 8th Ave. N. and 38th St. to 15th St.

I still need a few units to report week 2 sales, but I will get out the spreadsheet as soon as I have the data collected. So far sales seem a little light for week two so let’s encourage our scouts to “Knock it out of the park” in week three.
