Initial Order Due by 1 PM on August 19
The Council will be placing the initial order in August for delivery to units on September 10-11.
To meet that distribution schedule, we need Unit Kernels to place the initial order for the unit no later than 1 PM on Wednesday, August 19.
The orders can be placed in one of two ways:
- Online, using the Camp Masters system
- Call in, to the Center for Scouting in Fargo
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we encourage units to be conservative with the amounts of popcorn to order for Door to Door Sales and Store Front Sales. The maximum amount of popcorn for units to order will be 65% of the unit's total sales in 2019.
- District Popcorn Kernels and District Executives will have amounts for your unit's 2019 sale if you need that information
- An "Initial Order Worksheet" is available on the council popcorn page for you to use to determine product quantities. Insert the 2019 total sale amount, the percentage you want to order and the worksheet will calculate suggested amounts of each product to order based on customer purchasing history provided by Camp Masters.
This year, to minimize being stuck with extra inventory, units might want to talk to their Scouts about doing more "Take Orders" or telling potential customers about online ordering and delivery options.
