Order #2 Deadline is Approaching!
The Popcorn System should now be open for units to place Order #2.

All items will be available in this order, including Chocolatey Caramel Crunch and the Chocolate Lover's Collection Tin.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the inability to check the melted condition of the Chocolate Lover's Tin, this item is NOT returnable at the end of the sale. Unit orders for this item should be reserved for Take Orders or situations where the customer has already been identified. All other items can be returned (if undamaged) at the Rebalance Day in October.

Place Order #2 for your unit if you:
  • are starting your sales and have not received any popcorn yet.
  • wish to order chocolate items.
  • previously received popcorn, but need to replenish certain items.

Popcorn will be available for pickup the morning of Saturday, September 29 at locations around the council. Confirmed locations will be published once the window to place Order #2 has closed.
Wawa "Lottery" Results
We had a great response to the Wawa lottery this year! Thank you to all of the units that entered. We tried our best to get everyone their preferred location.

If your unit is listed for a location/day that you cannot or prefer not to attend, please email popcorn@colbsa.org to have your unit removed from the location/day so it is available for other units.

Based on what was indicated through the lottery survey, units will be contacted to fill empty slots.

Please review Wawa selling guidelines at colbsa.org/popcorn > click the Wawa & SEPTA tab under Info & Resources.
Show & Sells at SEPTA Stations
Through a partnership with SEPTA, our Scouts are able to sell at a select number of SEPTA stations in our area through October 21. The list of stations is available at colbsa.org/popcorn > click the Wawa & SEPTA tab under Info & Resources.

If your unit would like to sell popcorn at one of these locations, please email your request to  popcorn@colbsa.org with the date(s) and station(s) you are requesting. If approved (the date/location is not already spoken for) you will receive a copy of the SEPTA permit that must be displayed while Scouts are selling. Check out the website for more info.

Scout Take Order & Prize Forms are also available from your district professional, district kernel or at the Firestone Scouting Resource Center.
