It costs money to keep our Pack active, roughly $100 a year per Scout. Nearly all of Pack 32's income comes from our annual popcorn sale.
Changes from previous years
The Council has switched providers from Camp Masters to Trail's End. This brings the following changes:
Sales will be handled primarily through the Trail's End app. Register and get started at trails-end.com.
All Scouts must register with Trail's End to sell. You will need to know that you are with the Blue Grass Council, Elkhorn District, Pack 32.
If you have multiple Scouts, you may use the same parent email for each. Parents are able to switch between Scouts in the app.
Scouts earn points toward an Amazon gift card, instead of individual prizes.
Our catalog includes only one microwaveable popcorn option and one popping kernels option. The rest of the popcorn is pre-popped.
Scouts earn points toward an Amazon gift card (points scale).
Pack 32 offers additional prizes.
When do I start selling?
You may begin selling as soon as you receive or print the catalog and order sheet; or register and install the app. You should let customers know that the product won't be available until October, at the earliest.
Do I need to take payment when the order is placed?
Yes, you should try to collect payment with orders and may do so in the app. Sometimes, this isn't possible. However, not collecting the payment can ultimately make you or the Pack liable for the loss.
To whom should checks be written?
For popcorn sales, checks should be written directly to "Pack 32".
Does my Scout need to wear his uniform?
Yes. Scouts should be in uniform when selling door-to-door or at a booth.
