I like the new 2010 Centennial rank awards. Adding the date makes them special, and I think we'll look back on them with fondness in the future.
Watch for all of them in future editions of the Scoutsigns blog.
Snow has been in abundance. We've had to cancel meetings this month, as well as a long anticipated backpacking trip on the C&O. Disappointing, but man do we have a lot of snow!
On to the Patrol Box:

- 50th and 75th Anniversary strips and where to put on your uniform. Will there be a 100th in the same style?
