2019 Popcorn Selling Rules

posted Aug 17, 2019, 2:05 PM by Shane Patterson   [ updated Aug 17, 2019, 2:05 PM ]
-NEW THIS YEAR-ALL chocolate products taken from the council for "Show and Sell" are not returnable. What this means is if you fill out your order and it includes a chocolate product you are responsible to sell it or pay for it in your final popcorn return. You can certainly take the order of it from the customer and then request it from the pack for us to get as well.
-For the first order of the 2019 popcorn season (Due by August 30) you will be allowed to order 50% of your total sales from the previous year, or $300 minimum.  All orders after that please only order what you think you are going to sell.
-The order form does not have the capabilities of keeping a running total of $ amount but prices are listed so families will have to calculate as you fill out the order form.  If dollar amount is gone over the pack will contact to see where you would like to reduce your order.
-Popcorn can only be received by filling out the order forms online.  If order form is not filled out the pack will assume that you are choosing not to sell in 2019 / do not need any more that week. You can still sell off of the card and then get your order filled at later order dates.
-All new scouts will receive a standard $300 starter pack.
-All final money MUST be turned in in the form of a check.  Absolutely NO cash will be accepted.  Reasoning behind this is it takes too long to count the many thousands of dollars we would receive and more chances for a mistake to be made in counting.  This will also streamline things for families as well when dropping off your end of year sales.
-The pack will accept personal checks made out to "Pack 4363".  Do NOT have them write the check out to you.
-When picking up / dropping off popcorn absolutely no one but authorized persons are allowed in the popcorn kernels garage \ behind line set not to cross.
-All parents will be provided an extra order form to keep track of all there individual popcorn containers sold.  This must be turned in with your final drop off of popcorn / money.  This is being done so if totals are not coming out according to our records we have secondary document to look at and compare.
-Payment ahead of time is not necessary to receive popcorn.
-Each scout will have 33% of their total sales placed into a "Cub Bucks" account to use towards anything and everything scouting related. If your scout sells $300 in popcorn that will give them about enough cub bucks to pay for their $75 yearly dues and a $25 pack camp out.
-The sale starts September 7th and runs till October 20. Absolutely no selling popcorn of any kind will be allowed before or after these dates. This includes posting the take order card to social media sites (i.e Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). We need to respect the councils start date to ensure a fair sale for all scouts.
-Per council guidelines all Classic Trio, Cheese Lovers, and Chocolate Lovers tins must be returned in the box. It is perfectly ok to take them out of the box but do not throw the box out. These must be returned to the pack in a taped box or scout family will have to pay for the item.
