Have you seen the BSA’s contingent patch for the 2011 World Scout Jamboree?

Just a few minutes ago, the patch at left was delivered to my office. It’s the official 2011 World Scout Jamboree patch for the Boy Scouts of America’s contingent.

It’s more than just a cool-looking patch, though.

I’ll be serving on staff, formally known as the International Service Team, in a position that I’ll find out at a later date.

I’ll post updates about my pre-jamboree preparation right here on the blog. And when 38,000 of us gather in Sweden this July, this blog will be your source for daily dispatches from me.
