I can't begin to thank so many of you for reaching out to me and sending your sympathies for the passing of my dad. Scouting is a brotherhood so while most of you have never met him you can appreciate a Scouter who was registered and volunteered for several decades. I have not found time to respond to the many messages but please know the kind words are appreciated.

So many of my favorite collecting niches are represented in this block. I have the Type 1 Explorer Silver Award in my collection and Senior Scouting including Air Explorers is one of my favorite areas.
I won't be able to get out a new episode of the podcast this week with everything that is going on. However, I do have some good people interested in being guests so Scouting Hot Finds Radio is definitely back.
Late last week I added a new folder in my Facebook store by posting a fresh album with
300+ new CSPs that are all priced cheap with free shipping. It's much quicker to get that many patches in a sales album with simple pricing versus listing them out on eBay and paying them for being the middle man. If you see anything in this folder send me a message and we can square up.
I don't want to pile on the bad news but less than 36 hours after losing my dad we got the news that my wife's dad passed away. She came to the funeral yesterday and had to drive back to Columbia to help her mom plan the memorial service for her dad. When it rains it pours!
Yours in Scouting,

Make plans now to attend the return of a tradition that's been missing for too long - the Charlotte TOR. I'm helping organize the show as a fundraiser for Pack 33 at Sardis Presbyterian Church in Charlotte. We couldn't have a more supportive host. The church just celebrated 75 years of Scouting including sponsoring two troops and a pack. The show is being held in the 8,000+ square foot fellowship hall. We have ample parking and many amenities in this part of Charlotte.
