Kernel Toolkit

We’ve assembled all the tools you need for a successful Popcorn Sale.

Transition from Trail’s End System to Popcorn Manager

This year we are transitioning from Popcorn Manager to the Trail’s End Popcorn Management System. Units will initially sign up in Popcorn Manager and then be transferred over to the Trail’s End System. This way you will still have access to previous year’s sale information for placing your popcorn order in the Trail’s End System. The Trail’s End System allows you to trade popcorn but won’t debut the ability to communicate with other units until next year.  In the interim, we have created a Facebook Group with a Trade Board.  Please request to join the Northeast Illinois Council Popcorn Kernel Trade and Support Group for trading popcorn.
