2016 POPCORN SALE starts now!

by Amber Sizer, August 16, 2016

The time is now to register for our 2016 POPCORN SALE. Popcorn sales for your Unit and our Council provide for so many outdoor adventures, fun programs, camping events, training opportunities, and more. Remember, 73% stays right here in the Alamo Area with your Unit earning up to 40%. In 2015, Units earned a total of over $500,000 for their programs. You can be one of them this year! Not to mention this is a GREAT opportunity for your Scouts to "EARN THEIR OWN WAY" and allow you to "CLOSE YOUR CHECKBOOK OR PUT YOUR CREDIT CARD AWAY!!!"

Even if your Unit is not interested in Show & Sells, PLEASE consider the options of doing just Take Orders or Online Sales. The commissions are GREAT and there's less to manage without having product on hand.

Attend training or contact your District Popcorn Kernel (listed online) for more details. For registration, important dates, sales coaching videos, great resources, and more, visit our Popcorn Homepage: http://www.alamoareabsa.org/popcorn More resources will be uploaded over the next few days as well. I am also still working diligently to upload all Unit Kernel's into the new Trail's End Database. All logins for last year's popcorn system and online sales are no longer valid.

Bass Pro Lottery registration will be available later this week. Thank you for your patience!

PLEASE NOTE: Unit Kernel's Training for tonight has been cancelled. So sorry for the inconvenience.
