Are your Show and Sells going great? Need more product to continue your success? There are two quick and easy ways to get additional popcorn for your unit’s sales.
1.Additional Product from the BAC Warehouse
a. Request product from the Baltimore Area Council stock – The BAC has a limited amount of extra product on hand to distribute to units who request more. To request this product:
i.Contact your District Popcorn Kernel and/or your District Executive to request needed items. They will inform you of the date/time (within the week) they will be able to schedule with you distribution of the product.
ii.A “2016 Popcorn Sale Transfer Sheet” must be used to record the additional product signed out to your unit.
iii.Additional product from the BAC should be in full cases not individual items.
2.Unit to Unit Transfers
a. Local other area units might have product on hand that they would be willing to transfer to your inventory for continued success of your sale.
i.Your District Kernel can help you identify other units who could help fulfill your product needs. They may also be able to assist you with an arranged, organized swap meet for units to transfer product before the Return Date.
ii.Contact any unit that might be able to fulfill your need and arrange a time/place/location for the item transfer.
iii.Transfers must be recorded using the “2016 Popcorn Sale Transfer Sheet”. A council copy should be submitted to the Baltimore Area Council within 48 hours of the completed transfer for accurate/timely record keeping.
iv.Both units must sign the transfer sheet validating the product transfer.
v.Be sure to distinguish between cases/partial cases/items.
vi.The final deadline for all transfer forms to be submitted to the Baltimore Area Council will be October 24, 2016.
3. Unit to Unit Swap Meets
We are happy to announce several great opportunities for units to transfer popcorn to other units either to get
more product to sell or to help ensure they are not caught with more than their returnable amount. Below is a list
of Unit to Unit Swap Meets held regionally. Please reach out to your District Executive to let them know if you will
be participating in any or all of these Swap Meets so we can have adequate space. During the meets; it will be the
responsibility of the units to manage the transfer of their product and to submit signed transfer forms to BAC Staff
