There will  be 1 drawing a week starting August 25th.  Scouts drawn will come in the  scout office to pick up their prize. The final draw will be for an Xbox game system at the private screening of The Last Jedi.

New Popcorn Company This Year

We have switched to selling popcorn with Camp Masters Popcorn Company. We held a district kernel meeting and did a taste test and decided it was time for a change. They have similar products as well as new ones and they all taste delicious!! We will have plenty of samples to try at the kickoff. Their website address is campmasters.org and you will receive your login and password at the kickoff.

Best Ways to Sell Popcorn!

Show & Sell— Scouts can set up at a store front to sell popcorn; they could also set up at a craft show or festival.  Show and sells are set up by the district popcorn kernals and units sign up for these locations.  You can also approach local businesses unique to you community for setting up to sell popcorn as well.

Show & Deliver– Scouts go door to door selling popcorn, but instead of ordering the popcorn and coming back later to deliver they have the popcorn with them at the time. They collect the money and give the customer the popcorn immediately—no second trip!

Take Order—  Scouts go door to door or call people on the phone and ask them to buy popcorn.  You could also take order forms to work, family events, etc.  The order is then placed with the unit’s popcorn kernal and product is delivered on or after the October 28th distribution date.

Online— Scouts set up an online account and send emails to friends and family members to buy popcorn through the online site and the Scout receives credit for the sale.  This would be especially convenient for out of state friends and Family.

Goal Setting is the Key to Success

Hopefully someone from your unit came to the budget meeting so that you can plan to sell enough popcorn to fund your entire year of scouting, camping and awards. Under the Leaders tab on the website click on the sales tools for ideas to help plans your sale.
