Thank you for all you do to help fund Scouting Adventures!
Order #1 is On Its Way!
Thank you to the 102 units that placed their first order by August 3! There's still time to participate if your unit hasn't signed-up yet or placed an order. Order #2 is due by September 14 and will be available for pick-up on September 29.
Order #1 Pick-Up
The 24 units in the council that sold $10,000+ last year qualify for order #1 to be delivered directly to a location of their choosing. A representative from Read's Moving Systems will be in contact with the unit coordinator next week to arrange delivery for the week of August 20 or earlier.

All other units may pick-up their orders at the Council-Wide Roundtable & Popcorn Kickoff on Saturday, August 25 from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Victory Church in Audubon. In addition to product pick-up, join us for a popcorn seminar, pick-up order forms and a free Show & Sell banner from the popcorn table on the midway, and check out all the other great stuff happening in your council. The event is free to attend and lunch is provided, but please RSVP so we have enough food.
Resources and Training
Wawa "Lottery"
On October 6 or 7, our units will have a great opportunity to sell at a selection of Wawa stores in our area. Wawa has graciously allowed Scouts this opportunity for many years at their available and approved locations, with site coordination through the council. Please do not contact your local Wawa store or the corporate office directly. This will negatively effect our ability to provide this service in the future.

Click the button below for your unit to enter the Wawa location lottery, which will be open throughout August. The results/schedule will be posted on the website during the first week of September. Please note that not all Wawa locations are made available due to safety and logistic concerns or pending Wawa renovations.
New Scout Champions Program
We've got a new program this year to recognize our top-selling Scouts! In order to qualify, Scouts register an account through Trails-End.com. Click the link below and watch the video for more information.
