All of the popcorn has been received from Camp Masters now. The council has a small amount extra and our units also have extra available (see the 12/23/20 email below).
If you are a Unit Popcorn Kernel and still need to get popcorn, here is the information you need:
Prairie Fire - contact Brenda Thomson. She will have the popcorn next week.
Northern Sky - popcorn is available to pick up at the Center for Scouting.
Lake Agassiz - contact Lane Schirado or Kira Krueger. They will have the popcorn next week.
Roughrider - contact Rob Gilkerson. He has the popcorn now.
Tomahawk & Great Plains - contact Carleton Borden. He has the popcorn now.

Camp Masters is working on filling our request for more popcorn. They believe that they will be able to deliver the items to Fargo on Wednesday, December 23. Our council will then need to get the items to the appropriate districts.
Camp Masters will not be able to get us any additional product after this final shipment. So if your unit needs additional items, the only way we will be able to help is to get you in touch with one of our units that has the product you need.
We are unable to fill some of the unit's additional orders at this time. If we have items available, your district executive will reach out to you to let you know when and where they can be picked up.
The other items that we don’t have were ordered from Camp Masters this morning.
When I placed the order, they explained that there is a shortage in their warehouse for some of the items (mainly the ones containing chocolate), but they are 100% committed to getting what we need shipped out. However, there may be a delay with them getting the items to us due to their production schedule and shipping before the upcoming holidays.
Right now the council has small quantities of extra popcorn in all but one of the districts. We have received 56 requests from units for additional popcorn. We have also been notified by 24 units that they have extra popcorn. Some of the items that units need will have to be ordered from Camp Masters as the council and units do not have those items available.
I spent most of the day on Friday matching who needed popcorn and where we have available products. I will continue working on this Monday and Tuesday.
When Unit Kernels send an email, most of the time they forget to indicate which unit they are with. If they do indicate the unit, they forget to mention which district they are in. Terri Schultz, our popcorn staff leader who retired earlier this year, had been working with popcorn for 30+ years and knew which district each unit was in from memory. I have not yet memorized the 170+ units participating in the sale. So to speed up the process of identifying units that need popcorn and sources of popcorn, please use one of the links below to communicate with me.
In summary - please have patience. We will get the popcorn you need, but it may take a few days to get the items moved from one part of the council to another and then into your hands.
