2017 Popcorn Sale: It is time to get the popcorn kernels popping!
Rather than do a Council-wide Popcorn Kickoff, we are trying a district kickoff approach. Each unit is asked to have a representative attend their District Program Launch where the 2017 popcorn sale will be discussed. You will be able to earn an extra 1% commission by attending a district kickoff at the District Program Launch.
We are encouraging everyone to contact their District Executives and District Kernels for any popcorn needs. Also, all Wawa assignments will occur at the District-level. We are trying to honor (and promote) local scouts selling at their local Wawas. Come to the kickoff to reserve your Wawa location asap.
We are going through National for our prizes like we did last year. Units can opt-out of the prizes and earn 2% more in commission. We need to know by August 15, 2017 if a unit is opting-out of prizes so please discuss this with your units now.

If you pay early you will receive an extra 1% in commission. This will already be reflected in the system. The 1% will be removed and you will have a higher balance due after November 6, 2017.
Final payment is due by November 18, 2017.
All prize orders are due by November 30, 2017.
If you are opting out of prizes, you can still receive participation patches but the total number of patches must be submitted no later than November 30th. If you opt out of prizes, you submit the quantity of patches needed to your district executive and the patches will be ordered by the council. Patches will be distributed by your district executive.
|Attend a Kickoff||1%|
|Sell 15% more than the previous year||2%|
|Sell 30% more than the previous year||2%|
|Opt out of Prizes||2%|
|Total Possible Commission||38%|
Online sales have a 50% commission rate, but they do not count towards prize totals. Online sales do qualify for participation patches. Online sale commissions are distributed by Trails End to the council on a quarterly basis. The council will then distribute the funds to the units approximately two weeks after they are received.
If you have any questions, please contact your District Executive and District Kernel!
