  1. "But, burnt pancakes aren't a failure!" For sure Mr. iScouter. Adult leaders must learn not to do but to be alert for safety, etc. I also agree with the 1993 eagle that scouts should be in troops with their friends if that is new or existing one.
  2. Thanks to both of you for "squaring me away." I will proceed with patch and ribbon and not feel that I am acting like a foreign war general.
  3. New here so this may well have been asked. OA has a small arrow on a ribbon for a uniform shirt pocket button. I assume this indicates OA membership. If I wear a lodge patch, should I also wear the ribbon or should it be one or the other? Anything more about the ribbon as you move to brotherhood, etc.?
  4. Goodness, you can have so much fun! Many good ideas above: getting help from many sources. Remember get the training for your scouts since they lead. Perhaps use the field book - chapter by chapter. Get ideas from round table and ask your unit commissioner. enjoy
  5. Again thank! Please check this - What I believe that you told me: 1) Select a clear, thought out date and promote the heck out of the coming event 2) Consider combining with another regular scouting event 3) Strive for fun & fellowship; short and simple. Involve the families or whole units 4) Speaker, if any, relevant, focused, inspiring and engaging 5) Presentations – short, meaningful with pictures. “You did something notable!” Other considerations: We work for smiles. Good food, competing program, slideshow and other visuals. Breakfast? A p
  6. Wow, thank you very much for all the feed back. I will now spend the next few days studying your various ideas. It is great to have so many helpful scouters out there!
  7. How could a district make their event interesting, a must attend event which all would want to attend?
  8. Can you help me identify the signature on the right? I believe these three men were the leaders for the Jamboree Jamboree service troops.pdf
  9. Sextant - the only sights they probably would want to learn would be a noon sight and taking the altitude of the north star. Neither need much calculation.
  10. I was thinking that there were 5 different 1960 event patches. Attached are some (3) of them
  11. It would seem that you could only wear it on the pocket as a temporary patch; however, using a plastic protector over the button above that pocket would work or on a jacket or vest. In 1960 they had a bunch of jubilee patches
  12. I'm quite late to respond but I thought that it was logistics. 50,000+ in and out of one spot was no easy task.
  13. I have a lot of information of his from this Jamboree trip but have not seen the actual metal...will look again.
  14. My dad and some others got hiking metal during the voyage. Pack and all the hiked from stem to Hiking metal.pdfstern for the required distance! Attached letter from James E West
  15. Have any of you seen these? The are posters found with my dad's 1924 world jamboree gear. Posters are about 11X17 on glossy paper. The notes attached are what I figured out but would love additional information.1924 Posters.pdf1924 Posters.pdf1924 Posters.pdf
