I have been working on a book to catalog images of the memorabilia associated with Tamegonit Lodge.  The book has chapters with full color scans all of the typical issues including flaps, arrowheads, jacket patches and so on.  In gathering the images, I have found several interesting items, including some prototype flaps.  Here’s a sample of an F6 prototype (note the obvious difference in the backgroud color of the flaps):

I hope to have the book completed soon and available as print copies or as a download from this website.

In the meantime, if you have any interesting items in your collection that could be added to the book, please let me know through the comment feature below.

I just added a new feature to the blog – “Questions & Suggestions”

If you have questions about something in your collection, send me an image and I will try to identify it. If I can’t figure it out, it might be the subject of a future post on Broad Kaw Valley.

Also, if you have an idea for a post, please contact me through the “Questions & Suggestions”
page. Better yet, if you write something up, send it over, you might be a guest author on Broad Kaw Valley!  I’ve got a long list of ideas, but I’m bound to run out at some time.

You can also access the “Questions & Suggestions” page by clicking on the link above the header on the main page.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome!

Thanks for visiting Broad Kaw Valley – The intent of the blog is to discuss Kansas City area scouting memorabilia from collections that I feel are interesting and to also discover some of the history behind the events and artifacts associated with scouting in the greater Kansas City region. I also hope to keep things up to date with respect to the latest patch issues from the Kansas City area.  The plan is to provide weekly posts (typically on Tuesday morning) covering a wide range of Kansas City scouting memorabilia and history.

Feel free to leaves comments by clicking the links below the posts.  Also, if you have any suggestions for posts, I’d like to hear them.  Finally, if you have have questions about scouting memorabilia from the Kansas City area, feel free to send them to me.  I will try my best to answer them.  Who knows, it might become the subject of a post! 

Look for another post on Tuesday morning.

Introduction

As a Boy Scout memorabilia collector, my collecting interests have varied widely over the years Jamboree oddities, rank patches, Kansas Order of the Arrow lodges, NOAC patches, etc. As I’ve aged, I think I’ve finally narrowed my collecting interests down to events or places I’ve actually experienced or have an association. This narrows it down pretty quickly for me. I grew up in Olathe, Kansas, camped and served on staff at Camp Naish, and am a member of Tamegonit Lodge. So specifically, I collect Camp Naish, Tamegonit Lodge, and Kaw Council items. In addition, I have always been curious about the history behind the aforementioned collecting interests; which brings me to the point of this blog. My intent is to discuss pieces from my collection and others’ that I feel are interesting and to also discover some of the history behind the events and memorabilia associated with Camp Naish, Tamegonit Lodge and Kaw Council and from time to time the greater Kansas City region. I also hope to keep things up to date with respect to the latest issues from Tamegonit Lodge. I’ve got a list of post ideas including some interesting (to me at least) non-traditional collectible items from Camp Naish.

Stay tuned.
