Nuts for Scouting

Help your Scouts earn their way to camp this summer by participating in the 2018 Spring Nut Sale.  Once again, we are offering Scouts across our Council the opportunity to earn their way to one or more of our various summer camping opportunities in the West Virginia by selling nuts from Virginia Diner. 

This year we are sending sales packets to all units in the Buckskin Council to help their Scouts earn their way to camp this summer.  Selling nuts has been a successful way scouts across the Council have earned enough money to pay their way to camp.  It is a proven fact that scouts who attend camp will stay in Scouting longer, so why not give the Scouts in your unit the chance to attend one of our many camping opportunities this summer. 

Camping and all the activities available at our summer camps are why many families make the decision to join Scouting.  While in Scouting they learn valuable skills and participate in many activities only available at organized Scout Summer Camps, like earning the Shooting Sports activities badges and pins for Cub Scouts. 

Selling Nuts is easy.  They are an excellent value to the consumer.  Units will earn 32% for the sale that can help pay for the Scouts to attend camp.  Units need to collect orders and submit them to the Scout Service Center by April 9th and the orders will arrive for distribution to the Scout Service Center April 20th

Please make a commitment to help your Scouts attend Summer Camp and earn their way by selling Nuts this spring.  Fill out the Commitment form and return them to the Buckskin Council by March 5, 2018. 

 

Key Dates for the sale are:

March 5, 2018             Sale Begins

April 6, 2018                Sale Ends

April 9, 2018                Unit Nut and Patch Order Due to Council Service Center by Noon

April 20 & 21, 2018      Distribution of Orders

 

If you have questions or need more information, please feel free to contact us at the Buckskin Council, H.B. Wehrle Scout Service Center at 304-340-3663.  Thank you and we look forward to your Scouts having a wonderful experience this summer.

Please place your orders by sending the Unit Master Tally Form enclosed to [Click for member's page] or by fax at 304-925-0533 or to the H.B. Wehrle Scout Service Center in Charleston.

Information to Help Plan for Popcorn Pick-Up Day

Before you can deliver your Popcorn, you’ve got to pick it up. At the warehouse, we can accommodate all types of vehicles including trucks. In fact, we encourage units with large orders (anything over 100 cases) to rent or borrow trucks to pick up the popcorn. Many of the rental agencies extend discounts to Scout groups. Please make sure you have enough vehicles to handle your order.  Deduct 4-5 cases from the numbers shown for each passenger (child, dog, etc.) that comes with a driver. The warehouse is busy and potentially dangerous. Please try to avoid bringing young children and pets if at all possible.  The process of picking up popcorn will be as quick and painless as possible. If your unit will be moving product with several vehicles make sure the other drivers know the name and number of your unit to prevent confusion. We always appreciate your patience.
