Scouting Portal – Wikipedia

Want to learn more about Scouting around the world? A source I never considered was Wikipedia. Wikipedia describes itself as”

Wikipedia (pronunciation Spoken content icon) is a free,[4] multilingual, open content encyclopedia project operated by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Its name is a blend of the words wiki (a technology for creating collaborative websites) and encyclopedia. Launched in January 2001 by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger,[5] it is the largest, fastest-growing and most popular general reference work currently available on the Internet.

One of the resources available on Wikipedia is the Scouting Portal . The Scouting Portal contains links to Scouting News, Scouting by Country, Scouting Lists, Biographies and much more.

Take some time and check it out.

Arrowcorps 5 – New York State Lodges

John Pannell posted a link to Arrow Corps 5 patches on his blog.  At this point in time, there are no patches pictured from New York OA Lodges, nor am I aware of any NY lodges planning to issue patches for that event.

Does anyone know if any of the New York State OA Lodges are planning to or have issued  patches for Arrow Corps 5?
