I’ll have links at the bottom of the issue to all these infamous hoaxes but first up let’s see what the webmaster at OAimages.com has for us this year. The title for Pannell’s post reads, “BSA To Award Finisher Medals At Camp” Some of you may follow him on Facebook and know that he has taken up running later in life and getting those well earned medals is a passion of his.

A bit more sophisticated hoax has been posted on the official blog of Scouting Magazine authored by Bryan Wendell. The title is “Fur real: Boy Scouts of America to introduce Puppy Scouts program”. Among the cute ideas is that instead of patrols the groupings will be called kennels. For advancement these little guys will earn collar loops such as Dry As A Bone which is awarded for demonstrating for two weeks that you are completely house trained.

The final April Fools prank that I’ll share is from Scouts Canada and was posted on their Facebook page. It announced that from now on using traditional campfires will be banned. Instead Scouts will have screens playing a recording of a fire instead because let’s face it kids prefer screens.

There is still time to catch my weekly sales running in my eBay store. You can get any of my over 1,500 council activity patches for 50% off through the weekend. I’d love to find several hundred of these issues new homes to ring in the new month.
