I found these four photographs over the weekend.  They document my preparations for Camp Naish  in 1989 & 1990.  My dad, Jack Lewis, attended Camp with me both years and we were transported by the conversion van shown in the background.

Yes, I was very excited to leave for Camp

Below is our Troop photo before departure – I count 30 boys and 7 adults. I recognize a few of the faces and still talk with a few of the people pictured.  I am pictured in the 2nd row, 5th from the left.

Year Two (1990):

I am showing a little more restraint here.

Back for more! 26 boys, 6 adults. I am in the back row 3rd from left

Note:  big thanks to my mom for sorting through all of our family photos and pulling out the Scouting-related prints.

I’ve uploaded a new version of the Tamegonit Lodge event patch checklist. It can be found in the Broad Kaw Valley downloads section.  The file is a PDF that should allow you to make a mark in the check boxes – the boxes will accept text so you can keep track of your dupes as well.  

The primary update is the addition of two varieties for the 2004 event patches – as shown below, each patch came in a “curved” and “flat” top. I made some other minor update/clarifications as well.  As always, if you have any additions/corrections, please let me know.

The list includes everything through the end of 2010 (from what I understand no event patches have been made for this year) – except for the belt coup beads that were given out in the late 1980s – see picture below.   Examples of the markings on the plastic beads include (which appear to be burned into the bead by hand): “FF” (Fall Fellowship), “SC” (Spring Conclave), “86” (1986), “TN” (Camp Naish), “OA” (Order of the Arrow). The round wooden bead has “SC” written in pen.  I didn’t get pictures from all sides, so I can’t catalog these handcrafted treasures just yet.

Thanks to Gene T. for the image of the associated backpatch and four “flat” tops.

Scanning the patches and making a picture checklist is on my list of things to do…sounds like a good winter project.

I received a few more Kansas City jamboree item images the other day.  First, we’ve got a hat pin from Heart of America Council.  The design is modeled after the JSP issued that year (also shown below).

The item I was really excited to see is this Jamboree troop photograph from Troop 218:

Thanks to Gene T. for the materials above.  Based on our communication, there was another Jamboree troop from Heart of America Council that year – either 217 or 219.  If you have any more information about it, please pass it along in the comment section below or email me at broadkawvalley at gmail dot com.

I’ll leave you with this picture I took at the Heart of America Council office the other day – a frame with all of the council’s 2001 National Jamboree patches (including troop numerals).

I picked these two pictures up in a trade a while back.  They are 1984 and 1985 troop photos from Troop 86 of Olathe, Kansas – a few years before I joined in 1989.  I recognize a few of the faces that were still around when I started with the troop.   When I was a camper, instead of individual troop photos, we took one photo for all troops at the session while seated in the council ring.  I’ll try to dig some of those up.

Now if I could only find one of those white shirts with red ringers!

I’ve added a new gallery – this time for Heart of America Council JSPs. As you can see, I’m missing a couple of images (1997 National Jamboree – red border and 2001 National Jamboree gold mylar border).  If you have these patches, please send a scan!  Also, if anyone has the troop numbers to go along with the various border colors, or if you have any other items to add please contact me.

Here’s the link – Heart of America Council JSP gallery

I’ve added a new page which includes a gallery of Heart of America Council CSPs. Special thanks to Jody T. and Ryan M. for providing some of the images. As you can see, I am missing scans of three CSPs. If you have these issues, please send me a scan (preferably with a white background). You can send the images to me a this email address.

Also, if you see anything that needs to be corrected/added, please feel free to contact me.
