Win a free patch if you can Name That Council (Dec. 24, 2010)


'Twas the day before Christmas when a new blog post appeared.

A happy Scouter awoke, took a look, and then cheered. 

For there he saw a patch with no words and few clues.

But he smiled and told his whole family the news.

"I recognize this fort, that flag, and the sky."

So he opened his e-mail and typed a reply.

Two weeks later, in his mail he saw a dispatch.

"You're the winner," it said, "so enjoy your free patch."


We hope you enjoyed our little poem, and we hope that you and your family are having a great holiday season.
