Tutorial Videos & Online Sales
Please view the Pecatonica River tutorial videos for additional help. They have several videos explaining how to create Online Seller ID’s, the MY PR popcorn tools, as well as a number of other tools to help the unit and the Scouts have the most successful sale possible.
1K Club Update
We are excited to announce that our 1K Club will take place at the AMF West Lanes in Milwaukee. To be eligible to participate in this event, Scouts must sell $1,000 or more in either Council sponsored popcorn or wreath sale, not a combination of the two. One parent/guardian will be eligible to attend the event with their Scout. Additional family members will be able to attend at a cost. The event will include 2 hours of bowling, food and soft drinks, as well as a 10-credit arcade card for each child attendee.
Bucks Ticket Bonus Prize
The Bucks are bringing back their prize offer of a Buy One Get One Bucks Basketball game ticket. Scouts who sell $750 or more worth of popcorn are eligible to receive this Milwaukee Bucks Ticket Offer.
Show and Sell Returns
Preliminary show and sell returns (any product your unit does not need for take orders) are due in PRP by 11:59 p.m. on October 15. Show and sell returns will be Friday October 22 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday October 23 from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Milwaukee Service Center. Final returns will be entered in PRP by Council staff after product is received. We will e-mail out a link to show and sell units to sign-up for a return time. We will have one unit every 15 minutes to allow for social distancing. You can return less than your preliminary return in PRP but not more. We will not accept Double Butter or Caramel w/Sea Salt in Bears tins as a return. Reminder that after initial show and sell distribution, Three Harbors Council will not accept any damaged or opened containers for return or product from previous popcorn sales. Absolutely no returns will be accepted after October 24. There will be no exceptions to this deadline.
Update on Popcorn Supplies
At the August training events, we had not yet received the take to work tents. Those are now available at the office. Additionally, if you need other supplies, such as door hangers, more take to work tents, extra order forms, etc., those can be picked up at the Milwaukee and Kenosha Scout Offices.
As a reminder, the Council no longer carries any extra product. However, if you want additional product and you know of other units that would sell their product to you, you can do a unit-to-unit transfer. If you do a unit-to-unit transfer, you MUST email firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us of the unit-to-unit transfer so we can enter the transfer in your unit profile so that units are properly invoiced at the end of the sale. We would ask that the unit RECEIVING the popcorn send the email to email@example.com indicating the name of the product(s) and how many individual container(s) of each product the unit is receiving and the unit from which you are receiving the product. In addition to emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, you should carbon copy the unit kernel of the unit you received popcorn from so they can track the transfer for their records. The council will reply when the transfer is processed; you should check your account after the transfer is complete to verify that the information the council input is correct.
Take orders are due in PRP by 11:59 p.m. on October 21. Please be sure to allow for enough time to collect any take orders from your Scouts as we will not be placing a late order.
