****  UPDATE ****

Thank you to all the popcorn kernels! Your many hours of service have been greatly appreciated. In order to receive the Amazon gift cards for popcorn sales of $350 or more, you must enter the Scout's sales in the Trail's End app.  The gift cards are ordered through the app. (Note: The Scout will be emailed an Amazon Card code 7 days after the rewards are submitted.) 

Congratulations to all the Scouts who sold.   The annual Spin to Win Event will be February 7, 2020 at the Mantua United Methodist Church, 201 Mantua Blvd, Mantua, NJ 08051 at 7PM.  All Scouts who sold $1000 or more will be invited.  Here is the link to register for the event: http://dk.gardenstatescouting.org/event/2019-spin-to-win-popcorn/2600918

*** This year there is no opting out of prizes.  We are using the Trail's End prize system which are Amazon gift cards managed by Trail's End.  ***

_______________________________________________________________________________

NEW THIS YEAR:  There are 2 different commission structures depending on your past sales history.   Also, online sales are a flat 35% commission this year but online sales DO count towards prizes and there is always FREE shipping on all online orders.

  (FOR NON-TOP SELLERS)

Base Commission

    2%

For units that sell a lot of popcorn each year, it is more difficult to sell 15% or 30% more than the previous year.  We have decided to form a "Top Sellers Club" to thank our continual top sellers.

Wawa Show and Sells (10:00am to 2:00pm)

October 12 and 13, 2019  

Always check with your local Wawa store manager to confirm the time you can sell and where he/she would like you to set up.  Each unit will receive a GSCBSA Wawa confirmation letter and a certificate of insurance that they must take with them to their assigned Wawa location(s).  Each District Executive will work with their units to assign Wawa locations.  Wawa does not consult us on their construction plans so please verify that the location you are assigned is not under construction.  Also, if you are assigned a Wawa, you must attend and we expect you to be at the assigned location until 2:00pm.

Kickoffs:

We had 2 kickoffs already - one at the Cape May Zoo on April 27th and the Popcorn and a Movie on May 3rd.

Here are more Popcorn Kickoff opportunities at the District Program Launches:

May 29th at the Riggins Scout Resource Center - Baysea District - 7pm

Order forms will be available at the June kickoffs along with "Prize Sheets" explaining the new prize program which really benefits the needs and wants of most scouts and families.

In August we will have Mobile App Information Nights.  These "App Kickoffs" will be August 13th at the Pine Hill Scout Reservation and August 14th at the Rowan Office. More information will be provided in the near future.
