Because of the overwhelming response from our popcorn kernels and leaders, we are beginning our popcorn sale earlier this year. For 2019, the sale begins Thursday, Aug. 8, with unit orders for Show and Sell due to the council on Friday, Aug. 9. We know this is before the Old Sycamore Roundtable (Aug. 13) and therefore not all districts will have the information, but in order to have product in hand before Labor Day, we must do this. We hope all districts will understand.

It's time for Popcorn and we are so excited to be able to help simplify the sale this year with the popcorn app, online tutorials, Facebook page and more. Be sure to keep an eye on this web page for updates and information.


Show & Sell orders can now be placed online through your unit account with Trail's End. Order for Show & Sell are due by Aug. 9!

PLEASE NOTE - in order to have Show & Sell product in hands of units, your unit's Show & Sell order is due by Aug. 9, the day after the August Roundtable Kickoffs in 3 districts. For our Scouts in Old Sycamore this date is before your kickoff, so please connect and order your popcorn before kickoff. The unit leader who registered the unit to sell will have access to order the Show & Sell product via the Trail's End site. This date was established to be able to have popcorn product in hands of units before the Labor Day holiday weekend.
