Best Cookie Dad contest: Why my dad is the best cookie dad

Submitted by Maddie G.

Our dad has four Girl Scouts this year: a Cadette, Junior, Brownie, and Daisy. He helped us walk through the neighborhood with our cookie powered wagon. He helped us at cookie booths, too. When we needed to make change for customers, he was patient while we did our math. Most dads can’t say they are the best cookie dad, but our dad is!

We have nicknamed him “Cookie Man” and he is the best. He is our troop’s biggest cheerleader! He isn’t afraid to be silly and show us that it’s okay to do the same. He gives really good advice and is always trying to help us reach our goals, not just at cookie time, but always.

He gives a lot of his time and energy to our troop and Girl Scouts. He volunteers to help with cookie pick-up day at the cupboard getting other troops their cookies and then makes sure each of us is set up too. When we did our Powder Puff Derby, he helped us with our car designs and supported us while we ran the show. At our drive-thru cookie booth, he got all of us energized (the sign twirling he’s got down, but we’re helping him with his high kick).

We wanted to share how much we appreciate him because he genuinely wants all of us to succeed. It’s good to have someone like that in your corner.

Skyla’s Awesome Dad

My dad is always helping me out. For cookie season, my dad is helping me sell cookies left and right. After school, we might go set up a booth or we might go door to door. He is really good at helping me selling cookies and he is not afraid of the competition– I have to remind him sometimes it’s for our troop. Although its my first year in Girl Scouts, I think I’m doing pretty good (mostly because my dad). I love being in Girl Scouts. Today after school he took me to go sell cookies and I sold about 60 packages of cookies. He has so many friends who like Girl Scout Cookies, which is really helpful. When it comes to helping me sell cookies, my dad is the best at it. This is my awesome dad and I’m so glad I have him.

This is our TCM and cookie dad watching one of our troop girls sell cookies at a booth. He helps at every booth possible. He also helps with outings after cookie season is over and the girls get to go to fun events like ice skating, hikes, and teaching self defense classes. This great dad went to all the cookie booths for his daughter this year so mom could recover from an surgery she was had with the plastic surgeon tampa fl.

Our best is the best! He works full time, runs a cookie cupboard, takes care of our brother, and has helped us at a cookie booth almost every day to help us reach our cookie goals.  Between the 2 of us we have sold over 3000 packages of cookies and we aren’t done yet!  Thank you to our dad for always helping us and being a great support to helping us, our troop, and the many other troops of Colorado Springs meet their goals by having cookies in stock!  We love you!

Rypster the rock star Cookie Dad

Submitted by Laura Walters

Ryp Walters is the best cookie dad ever.  He attends EVERY booth whether his daughter is working or not to support and encourage the girls (as well as set up and break down the booth).  The booth is amazing and awesome and was built by Paul Neiman, another dad in our troop, and his girls.  It WON the Bling Your Booth contest because of it’s awesomeness and creativity.  

Ryp not only supports Troop 4233 as the Cookie Leader but he also supports his other daughter and her Cadette troop in lots of ways.  

For this month of the year, Ryp’s garage and van are filled with not only love and family…but cookies and more cookies.  His commitment to excellence, to reaching goals and to having fun are what makes him the rock star that he is.
