Camp Hale, 2017

Hale 2017

This is the patch from Hale Scout Reservation in 2017. The initials of the four stickmen, John Fournet (SPL), Eric Keilbarth (ASPL), David Fournet (LC Chair), and Aidan Pohl (HQM), can be found in the bushes. Ironically, the only stickman in attendance was SPL John Fournet. If you have any additional stories or information about this patch that you would like us to add to this page, please let us know.

(Killer) Clown | Troop 26 WOW 2016

Clown 2016

This is the patch for the 2016 Troop Webelos Hallo-Weekend. The theme, The Clown, is based on Bill’s childhood (and adulthood) fear of clowns. The clown was played by Eagle Scout Parker Plank, who convinced Bill to go through with the clown theme. Parker’s initials are ghosted in the bottom corner along with SPL Logan Yarroll’s. It is also rumored that the clown’s very large thumb was originally intended to be a very large knife, however it was modified after Bill heard about the coincidental and terrifying “clown attacks” of 2016 that started after the event had been planned but before the event took place. If you have any additional stories or information about this patch that you would like us to add to this page, please let us know.

Games of Indian Summer | District WOW 2016

Modeled after past District WOWs and Camporees, this event allowed Scouts and Webelos to participate in exciting Native American inspired games and activities.

Medicine Mountain | South Dakota 2016

Medicine Mountain 2016

Rather than skipping out on the opportunity to take a big trip in 2016, the troop decided not to return to Hale Scout Reservation in 2016 but rather to hop on a bus and visit Medicine Mountain in South Dakota. The trip featured visits to Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Monument that is under construction. Scouts were able to participate in unique activities such as spelunking. This is the patch for the trip. The “PP” in the bottom left corner stands for SPL Parker Plank. If you have any additional stories or information about this patch that you would like us to add to this page, please let us know.
