Philmont’s turning 75! So what’s in it for you?

It’s OK to stare.

Feast your eyes on Philmont Scout Ranch’s droolworthy 75th Anniversary Arrowhead patch.

As if 10 days at Philmont weren’t great enough, anybody who takes a trek in 2013 gets one of these eye-catching patches to hang on their right pocket.

In 1938, Waite Phillips donated his first gift of land to the BSA. Seventy-five years later, Philmont plans to celebrate this initial donation and the continuing legacy of the BSA’s hiking high-adventure base in New Mexico.

To get one of these patches — and the unforgettable Philmont experience that comes with it — register for a 2013 trek soon. Spaces are still available, but I wouldn’t procrastinate too long.

  1. Why is there no mention of Northern Tier’s 90th anniversary this summer? This program was really instrumental in setting the pace for other ventures, like Philmont.
