How do we find out who our district popcorn manager is?
Matthew Hilley
35:59
The Popcorn Sales guide lists District Kernel contact info and it is available to download at ncacbsa.org/popcorn. In the case of a District Kernel vacancy you should reach out directly to your District Executive
Amy Mccurdy

Nice Batman mug!

Where can the District Executive Info be found?
Matthew Hilley
39:41
At the ncacbsa.org homepage select the dropdown menu in the top right corner -> select your district -> your district leadership contact info should be listed there

Where can order forms be found for wagon sales?
Matthew Hilley
40:05
If all else fails you can reach out to Jonathan and I. Our contact info will be shared at the end
Colleen Rucker
40:31
Are physical order forms available at the council office or is all ordering on the app?
Matthew Hilley
40:38
Your District Executive has access to the forms
Martha Martin
41:04
Is this microwave popcorn or pre popped?

Please save product questions for that section of the presentation

Elizabeth Michalik

thank you
huma hakim

Will there be free shipping offered again for over $30?
Bradley Landis
47:11
I skipped ahead to the Popcorn Planning Guide and it doesn't list the location for replenishment pick ups. In addition, it lists the dates to place the replenishment orders but it doesn't indicate the dates to pick up these orders. Please advise.

Where can we find allergen information ?
Dianna Price
48:14
Where can we get the prize list

Matthew Hilley

We'll get to the training assets found in the trails end portal that has product info as well as other resources including the rewards flyer
huma hakim
52:03
Are online direct prices more expensive than product lineup prices?
Michelle Winters
54:27
do time limits only apply to the in person sales and not the online?
Rick Bloss
54:39
The vast majority of traditional products will mirror what your take order forms say. Prices are set for traditional products by the local council so Trails End follows a standard pricing online. Also testing a .99 cent model as most online retailers do that.
Bradley Landis
56:44
I also had some concerns last year about messages that were sent directly to people who purchased previously that seemed to conflict with the individual messages my son was drafting and sending to his previous customers. Is there a way to turn off the automated messages so he can control the messaging and his "pitch"?
huma hakim
58:08
What about points for military donations?
Rick Bloss
58:28
We will no longer include any Scouts name in communication to prior consumers. We also created that auto share feature so ideally Trails End will not be sending any of those emails and thy will come directly from your Scout.
Bradley Landis
59:14
Thank you. That was very awkward last year.
Rick Bloss
59:19
Military acts just like a product. Online or CC for military is 1.5 points, cash is 1 point
Bradley Landis
01:02:07
Are there storefronts already selected by NCAC, or is this totally to be handled by the Troop individually?
huma hakim
01:02:16
I don’t see any storefronts added at this time - will they be added in future with hybrid model mentioned?
Bradley Landis
01:02:47
Where would we look to see if storefronts are subsequently added?
Amy Mccurdy
01:06:36
So scouts have a choice between Amazon gift card or choosing from prize page?
Amy Mccurdy
01:07:29
Thank you!
Dianna Price
01:07:51
What is the start and ending date for store front and wagon sales?
Bradley Landis
01:09:28
Thank you.
Caitlin Serotkin
01:10:13
Will be able to watch the recording of this? Missed the first half
Rick Bloss
01:11:20
Yes the recording will be available after the call.
Caitlin Serotkin
01:11:34
Thank you!
Dianna Price

Our new Pack Leader signed up our unit to sell popcorn, but designated me as the popcorn kernel. Are you saying she can add me on as the unit team member vs me having to sign in her trails end account to oversee how the pack is doing in sales? I hope I asked this question correctly.
Matthew Hilley
01:16:26
Yes, she can add you as a unit team member
Sara Shone
01:18:35
I apologize if this is a dumb question but should our pack leader have access to this site already?
Rick Bloss
01:19:37
If the kernel has registered to sell popcorn, then yes they have a login to the site.
Bradley Landis
01:19:41
Can you elaborate on the timeline between the date you place a replenishment order and what the pick up date will be?
Lea Pickett
01:20:11
Is Old Dominion one of the regions that doesn't have a warehouse? I got a message stating I can't order for August with a supplier identified
Rick Bloss
01:20:16
https://www.trails-end.com/leader for unknit registration
Sara Shone
01:20:41
Thank you, how do I as the kernel get access or register?
Sara Shone
01:20:47
Thank you!
Tom Scott
01:22:20
If my unit just wants to sell online, do we still need a unit leader to register ? Or can each scout sign up on the app ?
Matthew Hilley
01:22:34
Registration site -> https://www.trails-end.com/unit-registration
Sara Shone
01:22:59
Thank you!
Rick Bloss
01:23:28
The unit still needs an account because the commission is owned by the unit, not the Scout.
Caitlin Serotkin
01:28:34
I just jumped in to run popcorn for our troop. How do I get in the system to get started ?
Rick Bloss
01:31:25
Caitlin, Register your unit here and you will get a username and password into the system. https://www.trails-end.com/unit-registratio
Dianna Price
01:32:33
I am sorry, where do we bring you the check?
Matthew Hilley
01:32:59
To the last distribution on Nov. 23
Sara Shone
01:33:33
I’m sorry if this has been said already, where is the distribution spot?
Matthew Hilley
01:34:52
There are several distribution locations throughout our council. The location for you district is listed in the Sales Guide on the ncacbsa.org/popcorn webpage
Sara Shone
01:35:07
Thank you
