Dates to Remember!!!
2014 Popcorn Ball Dates are announced!!

We are offering two Popcorn Ball dates this year for our $1000 sellers.  Omaha Popcorn Ball with the Creighton Blue Jays is Sunday, November 23, 2014.  The times are still to be determined.  The Sioux City Popcorn Ball with the Sioux City Musketeers will be on Saturday, December 13, 2014.  The times will be announced at a later date.
An important date to mark down is the registration deadline – Thursday, November 6th by Noon.  Since our Creighton game is early this year we need all registrations completed by this date to ensure we have shirts and medals ordered in time for these events.
If you have any questions, you can email your popcorn team at
