  • Jambo 2013 badge size

    I noticed that the 2013 jamboree has a very tall badge. Has anyone seen one to know the dimensions? Seems like it could be a challenge on smaller shirts.

    3" x 1-3/4"

      Thanks, so its just a skinny badge and not a tall badge.

        It looks comparatively smaller than the 3" diameter round patch of the past. And the embroidery is somehow different, I can't really say how; it just is a really small stitch, very smooth and sharp edged. And rather dark, it reminds me of the silohuette of the BSA postal stamp.

            Just got it in the mail. it's a whole different type of patch with what feels like a separate backing only held together at the edges. I need to take a pic when I get back to the house. Small but well designed.

              I tried doing this with an iPhone photo but decided it needed to be a scan.

                Oh, ma goo'ness...

                http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=2013%20national%20jamboree%20patch&clk _rvr_id=375452032840&adpos=1t2&MT_ID=70&crlp=13281 054852_2416792&tt_encode=raw&keyword=2013+national +jamboree+patch&geo_id=9232&adgroup_id=4028198172

                all on ebay, and none of which look like what they sent me to "welcome me".

                This is what they sent me: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://lfcjambo.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/2013-NSJ-Patch-on-Venturing-Uniform-FB-2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://lfcjambo.org/&h=517&w=460&sz=70&tbnid=9lmI7tTMBVCuKM:&tbnh=84&t bnw=75&prev=/search%3Fq%3D2013%2Bnational%2Bjamboree%2Bpatch%26 tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=2013+national+jambor ee+patch&usg=__jrdl7lXTFGUcf428UyCmEwgBP_U=&docid= dlFZGbrrVUfB5M&hl=en&sa=X&ei=pewqUPDsJ4bW6wHT34CoC A&ved=0CG8Q9QEwCg&dur=1128

                Wow.

                  I have received 2. Both look like Cito's with the orange border. I wonder what yellow means (participant?) I know that mine is from being staff. I have not seen any for the Council's contingent leaders.

                    I want to say it's a "woven sew on" typical of European patches.

                      It does appear to be a woven. I've had mine for months and haven't sewn it on yet. I'm not sure that the woven can take the repeated washings over the next 11 months. I'm on OA staff.

                        dfolson, there is not a Council Contingent Leader position anymore. They need to register as unit leaders or as staff in order to attend the Jamboree.

                          I've had mine for months too. I really should get around to sewing it on a uniform.
