Name That Council: Jan. 14, 2011 solution


For a patch with plenty of visual clues on it, this one sure was tough.

That's because the Pioneer Valley Council no longer exists. In June of 2008, the council merged with the Great Trails Council to form the new Western Massachusetts Council.

Forty-two of you knew the name of the former council that wore the patch seen above.

The Pioneer Valley Council's headquarters were in Chicopee, Mass., which is just up the river from Springfield, where basketball was invented.

If you spotted the basketball and hoop on the right side of the patch, you probably used that clue to help guide your search.

That might have been the case for this week's winner, Marshall Hollingsworth of the Heart of America Council in Kansas and Missouri. Marshall gets the patch seen above.

Keep entering each week for a chance to win Name That Council. New patches appear right here every Friday, and you have until 9 a.m. (ET) on the following Wednesday to send us your guess.
