Thems is ugly!
Scout Spirit or no, they should shoot the idiot who came up with these. Hope your Troops and Packs have a supply of old ones.
I was at the Scout Shop this morning and the new patches are available now. I'm not sure how I feel about them, but they really don't look too bad in person.
The subject of the new rank patches was broached at our troop committee last night and the consensus of opinion was that we will try to avoid using them if possible.
Hey Bklyn, That statement is a little rough isn't it? I think it was very inappropriate. Please review the 5th and 6th points of the Scout Law.
Count me as a "dislike".
Did no one else notice that the scout rank was not included? I don't like the new ranks and think if they wanted to do something special they should have added the something like the100 year ring that you can put around the World Crest instead of the wording. My Troop is new and does not have any extra rank so if the boys don't like the new rank they will have to earn a rank as soon as it turns 2011.
I think this is some plan to drive collectors to buy a lot of patches.
Eagle 92 as Eagle 90 stated above me they are in the stores now. Mine haven't arrived yet, but are on the way. I reccommend that you get to your nearest Scout shop ASAP to avoid the "gems". It won't be long before they take over the country. Initial orders were limited but large reorders were made immediately once the news came down from upon high about shelving the regular ones.
My pack committee said yuck to the idea too. I'm still reserving judgement on the AoL badge. Seeing will be believing.
Well I talked to the pack folks last not and they think the patches are UGLY, stressing the UGLY. Also some folks are a little peeved that teh Webelos who crossed over in Nov. missed out while their buddies still in the pack will get the annivserary AOLs (yep they think it's ugly but folks willg et them b/c they will be collector's items.)
this sounds like the old joke about food on a Sea Cruise Buffet, it tastes terrible and there is so little of it.
The badges are either good or bad, they can't be both
I showed an actual picture of the Eagle patch to my son. He liked it and says he's determined to finish his Eagle project in time to get one. The actual pictures do look better than the concept drawings.
Count me as underwhelmed.
The Eagle Rank patch looks good, since the regular one already has wording around it.
I think you'll see more and more of this for 2010. It was announced by Tico Perez in the Fall/Winter "Commissioner" that he recieved permission to have special "2010" commissioner office patches for all commissioner posistions.
As a commissioner, I think it's kind of cool, they have used the older FC badge and wreath for the center.
I'm kind of in a "take it or leave it" kind of opinion about them. But really, the only ones that make a lot of sense are the AOL and Eagle. I mean, other than those it's taken off for the next one.
But since my son is crossing over and earning AOL this year, it is kind of cool. Let's just not try to add it to the leader knots when they get older. (Wait, did I say that out loud? Uh-oh).
