New Patch: Centennial Ring Emblem

There is a new patch available to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Scouting.

It is not a temporary patch and gets sewn around the World Crest emblem (the purple one on your chest). It is optional though.

[Rumor has it that Rose has ordered 60 of them for the council store! Contact her to get them!]

They are $1.49 apiece.

For fun: Anyone who leaves a comment below will be entered into a drawing for a free Centennial Ring Emblem. What do you think of the new emblem? Good idea, bad idea? Will you be wearing one? Drawing on 01 SEP 2009.

Video--History at Camp Rock Enon

Take a few minutes to watch this news story from TV3 in Winchester.

Scout Warren Drummond climbed his way into CRE history last week with a little help from his friends...and CRE's great climbing staff.

Congratulations to all involved, especially Warren.
