  1. As this is a posting for Camp Benjamin Hawkins, I will stay on thread and say, Yes I have been there too. It is a great camp and the Camp Program Director does a great job providing an outdoors scouting adventure for the scouts and leaders. Yes the roads are sandy and not always passible but then the Camp is well designed and Auto Traffic shouldn't be necessary except to bring the scouts in and take them out. They have a handicap campsite available and have the facilities centered around the main activity area and the waterfront. Areas like COPE and the rifle ranges are back far enough that th
  2. To all you new CSP patch Collectors KoreaScouter was wondering how to store and Display the CSPs. I highly encourage you to spend a little extra money and buy the CSP Display sheet that are available through your various Scout shops. I don't have the catalogue number on hand but can get it if people want it. You can store up to six patches per page and they fit nicely. The pages are normal 81/2 x 11 so they will fit with the MB card pages as well. To KoreaScouter, I too am interested in a Far East Council and will trade you a Transatlantic Council (Europe & North Africa) if you don't
  3. I have aquired an old Cub Scout shirt that has the metal buttons that are held on by metal rings. It also has blue and gold Pack numbers. I don't have a clue what period the shirt is from but I know it predate the early 70's because it had a red felt wolf or bear patch. The shirt is not in the best condition, and the patch was out of place. Could this help? Sorry, I only have a shirt. you can reply to me off line at caberney@yahoo.com.
  4. No, And I will tell you why. For the boys, the CSPs that are currently available if each council has only one. Makes it a worth while endeavor as is. I understand and even support the need for special event patches as well. National & World Jamborees, etc. But to have several patches from one area just because that area has numerous things to show some how defeats the purpose of the Uniform. In fact, I would rather see District Patches than several different CSPs for the same caouncil. The only people who benefit from this are the Collectors and Patchmakers. I support the counci
  5. I am very interested in Trading Patches with anyone. You can contact me via Email caberney@yahoo.com with your address and I will contact you about where to send patches. I got really interested in the International scout aspect when I was in England for three years. So far I have patches from 6 countries and have a Cubbie, cub scout mascot, that I send to units all over the world. This fall he will be crossing Canada to learn about their Wolf Cub Scout program. You can find out more about Ted by visiting his website at http://host.scouter.com/ny/caberney. Yours in Scouting Chris Fau
