Popcorn 2014 Unit Leader’s Guide

Click the 2014 Popcorn Kernel’s Book – REVISED quick link at right to download your copy! This is the REVISED version with a few minor changes made. From Scott Johnson:

First, there was an overlooked mention of a fishing pole prize that has been deleted.  This was an over sight as the fishing pole was a prize from last year that has been replaced with a sleeping bag.

Second, The original Popcorn Kernel’s book (that many of you may have), listed the price of the 20 pack 94% Fat Free Microwave Butter  as being $22.  However, due to a printing error all the Take Order Forms list the item at $25. We will be using $25 as the price point for this item simply to not confuse anyone.  The only thing the public will see or know about is what is printed on the Take Order Form so with it listed at $25 as the price, we will simply accept that as the retail price for that item this year.
