eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter
Friday Morning Edition
Sept 20, 2019

In today's issue I have another interview video with a TOR organizer.  This time my guest is Jeff Ansley who is sharing details on the Ed Harris Memorial Trade-O-Ree which is being held in Portland, OR on October 4-5, 2019.

I didn't know Ed Harris so my first question off the bat was to ask Jeff to tell the listeners about this Scouter and why the TOR is named for him.  During the interview Jeff shared that this is one of only two shows in that region of the country and it is a long running event.

A buying rep from the National Supply in Charlotte has visited our Scouts BSA troop meetings a few times to get ideas about uniforms.  As you might remember back at the beginning of the year there was quite a swirl about sizes, styles and the new shirts.  She has taken some ideas from our Scouts and is working on prototypes of new choices for female Scouts.  It was cool to see where she is headed with feedback from our front line Scouts.

Auctions Ending Friday & Saturday on eBay
All this week I've spent time updating the Camp Barstow website and it's finally 95% finished.  We have a bunch of camp promotion events coming up in October and it's prime time for troops to start making plans to come to camp. We had a 32% increase in attendance last year and the team wants to see it grow again in 2020.

I have a terrific run of unique council and district patches on eBay right now.  These are the CP and district patches that have no year but were standard issue in some case.  This is a niche for some veteran collectors.  With over 100 listed and some ending soon check out what I have on eBay.
Tomorrow morning I am going to get "trained to position" as they say in Scouting.  I'm attending our local Scouting Success Seminar and taking the class for troop committee.  That is my role in our Troop 233 female troop.  Wouldn't you know it my job there is secretary in charge of the email newsletter. :)
Have a great weekend,
