  • The Product is shipped directly from Trail’s End to the customer and the Scout and Unit receive credit for the Sale.
Show and Sells
  • Show and Sells make up a big part of our popcorn program. We've obtained permission from local businesses to set up a sales table.  Show and Sells have plenty of products on-hand for people to buy.  Different Scouts work at the table in shifts.  Always have adult supervision.  
  • Check the calendar for show and sell times and other important details.
Scouts can also create their own Show and Sell 
  • by reaching out to local businesses and getting permission to set up a table for sales.  If you do, be sure to let us know.  We're happy to help you help us by coordinating other Scout's participation and providing the popcorn!
Signing up for Show and Sells
  • Invitations are sent out by email in advance of the scheduled Show and Sell.
  • Scouts should participate in as many Show and Sells as possible
