The Pine Nut District of Boy Scouts of America’s Northern Nevada Council has reason to celebrate.

He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 16 of Carson City. According to his father, Dan Bowler, in the prior year, Luke was No. 5 seller in the nation as well as No. 1 in the council with sales of more than $17,000. He set an all-time Council Record at $18,432 four years ago. This is a family tradition. Luke’s brother Nick has been the No. 1 popcorn seller twice and Luke has accomplished that feat three times as each brother finishing second or third for three times in  the last 6 years. Together, Nick and Luke Bowler have had more than $80,000 in popcorn sales.
