This is the patch from the first major themed campout in the troop, based around an airplane crash and building the skills necessary to survive on an island. “It was the brain child of SPL Reid Spears,” says Bill. “One of our Assistant Scoutmasters, Weldon Levacy, got us a tail section of a plane for the debris field. When the troop arrived at the field on Saturday morning, they were met with suitcases and other debris. It was a survival campout. The scouts had to survive Saturday night using only what they found in the suitcases and what they could use from the debris. First aid opportunities were everywhere including an injured Randy McGuire with an aircraft bolt in his back. The first themed campout was a roaring success.” 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.
