The Council-wide Popcorn Sale represents a money-earning opportunity that benefits the Scout, the unit, and the Baltimore Area Council alike.  While units can fund all or part of their yearly programs with a single popcorn sale, some units empower Scouts with the ability to earn their way to outdoor adventures.  These Scouts accomplish personal goals to fully fund their summer camping experience.  To officially sign up for the 2016 sale, please complete the form below!  Join us in making 2016 a great Popcorn Sale!

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

 

 

Units can earn up to 39% of their total sales

Base Commission = 25%

+3% BONUS Commission for Attending a Popcorn Tradeshow/Training 

+2% BONUS Commission for Attending a Michael Beck Seminar ***

+5% BONUS Commission for submitting your final payment on time

+4% BONUS Commission for declining use of Prize Incentive Program

***Units that sold in 2015 and had an increase in total unit sales from 2014 to 2015 will automatically earn the 2% bonus commission. However all units are still encouraged to attend.  

  • Set a sales goal for your unit and for each den or patrol. Most important step a unit can do. Base the goal on your actual budget needs.
  • Communicate the units plan to assist leaders and committee members and together, determine a sales goal or each Scout, based on the unit’s goal.
  • Conduct a “fun-filled’ kick-off event for Scouts and their parents.
  • Emphasize what the Scouts will receive for hitting their goal.
  • Provide a letter to the parents that clearly spells out:
    • the purpose of the sale.
    • How the money raised will be used.
    • And what the “per-Scout goal” is
  • Consider using some of the unit’s commission to offer additional incentives that your Scouts really want.
  • Encourage ALL your Scouts to go out and sell! 67% of people will buy when asked and less than 30% of the public is asked.
  • Sell to friends, family members, neighbors, etc.
  • Take the “Take order form” to work.
  • Have a victory celebration!
