How's it Poppin'?

Only 2 weekends left.  Don't hold onto your Show & Sell because you might need it for Take Order.  Contact your District Kernel today if you haven't sold over 75% or if you need more product to help your Scout reach or exceed their goals.  

Weekly Drawings 

Click here to enter the Week 5 drawing.   Look below to see previous winners.


Did you transfer product to another Unit?  Submit the Unit to Unit Product Transfer Form as soon as possible to keep your Unit's financial liability correct and up to date.  Once submitted, the submitter will receive a confirmation email.  Within three business days both Units will receive a request for approval.  Please respond quickly so that the transfer can take place in the Trail's End system.

ZERO Returns

Our goal this year is zero returns.  How can you help make that happen?
  1. Check with your Scouts weekly to maintain a Unit inventory - know where your Unit stands
  2. Each week motivate the Scouts.  Tell them how your Unit sale is going and remind them of the reward
    • Celebrate prize club qualifiers
    • Announce Weekly Drawing winners
    • Let the Scouts share good sale stories
  3. Make sure each Show & Sell booth has plenty of product
  4. If you haven't sold 75% of your inventory by 10/9, rethink what is possible
  5. Check in with your District Kernel weekly to let them know how your sale is going.

Week 5 Entry Form open - Click here
