I don’t know if this has ever happened to you but while I was at the Yorktown I couldn’t help but notice interesting stuff on folk’s Scout uniforms. Its like I was scoping out their patches! One guy from the mountains of North Carolina was wearing a 1985 Diamond Jubilee lodge flap from Tsali #134 with a green border. That’s a pretty tough one! I also noticed a kid from Atlanta wearing a Heroism Award Medal.
In my latest video published Friday night I wanted to share a moral lesson about buying patches and dealing with people in this hobby. You’ll have to watch the video to see that story but suffice to say it explains how the prized jewel of my Girl Scout collection arrived in Charlotte late this week almost 2 years late.
While on the trip we did some more brain storming about the Charlotte TOR (sponsored by the Cub Pack). We are working on having pizza as the main course for concessions Friday night and Hot Dogs as the main lunch choice on Saturday. I will personally have cases of Girl Scout cookies at my table available for purchase. Sophia will be there to sell those and get some volunteer hours helping with the concessions.
All next week I’m going to stay behind the computer and grind out a bunch of Jamboree flaps, JSPs, and other items from my California consignment. I need to push as many of those onto eBay as possible so expect to see 100+ auctions launching every night. I have 4+ priority mail boxes to get through this week so that’s a pretty lofty goal.
