Mayflower Council – CSP Design

A bit northeast of New York State, a new Council is born, and have released a design for their first CSP.

The Mayflower Council was established in 2017 and is a result of the consolidation of Scouting programming that has served Greater Metro West and the South Shore areas of Massachusetts for over a century. Comprised of territory that was once part of the Algonquin, Norumbega, Knox Trail, Squanto, and Old Colony Councils

The Camp Squanto Alumni Association announced:

Here is the new … and 1st … CSP for the Mayflower Council. It has the silhouette a Pilgrim and a Native American facing a mayflower. This is the design, the mayflower and green crest, that is on the back of the Mayflower II in Plymouth Harbor. The silver border will go out to those registered in the new year, then the border will be gold.

Leatherstocking Council New CSP Design

I don’t normally post CSP information on this blog, but thought I would pass this along to the readers. Over the weekend I wrote about the new lodge, Ohkwaliha·Ká Lodge #34 created from the merger of Onteroraus Lodge #402 and Ga-Hon-Ga Lodge #34..

Leatherstocking Council as the result of the merger of Otschodela Council and Revolutionary Trails Council earlier this year. They have no released their new CSP design.

Below is … the final digital rendering. Daniel’s patch was the winning design based on a vote by the Scouts at this past weekend’s camporee

New GNYC 2016 FOS Sets Available

Gene Berman provides the following information and scan of a new set of Friends of Scouting CSP’s from GNYC, and for a limited time such a deal.

Greater New York Councils has issued the FOS series for 2016. There are 7 patches in the set as there has been the past few years.

The purpose of the patches is a recognition to those that contribute to the Council Friends of Scouting (FOS)campaign. Each of the borough CSPs will be given for a donation of $50.

GNYC FOS 2016 001

There are six of them as Staten Island continues to produce a day scene and a night scene. The GNYC CSP is given to those who have contributed $100. The grand total to own all of them is $400 which is 6 times $50 plus $100 for GNYC= $400.

They may be purchased all together or individually by calling the Greater New York Councils office at 212-242-1100 or the direct line to Joe Schiltz, Assistant Director of Field Service, (212) 651-2827, who is handling the FOS campaign.

SPECIAL NOTE…”SUCH A DEAL”. These patches were not intended to be sold as sets. They are intended for individual recognitions in the boroughs and the Council for donations in that venue.
However, I was able to convince the powers that be, that if I bundled together as a group for a discount, I could probably sell 10 sets and one I would buy to make 11 if we could give the collectors a break. Yop, I pay for them too. Therefore, I can offer the remaining 3 of those sets for $275 per set first come, first served. The hook I gave the council was they could make back most of their initial cost outlay, immediately. To date I have sold 8 sets and have 3 left. So if you are interested, please email me for details and a scan of the patches.

GNYC Freedom Tower James E. West CSP

I had previously posted about the new GNYC Freedom Tower CSP set which came out late last year.

Eddy Petersen and Gene Berman both sent along information that there is also a James E. West version of the Freedom Tower CSP.

GNYC has just released a James E. West CSP in the same design as the new set but with James E West at the bottom.

I found out that these CSP’s are now available at the various GNYC Scout Camps. Here is a link to the order form.

I do not have any of these sets available for trade.

Greater New York Councils will soon launch its new set of CSPs

Gene Berman recently posted this to Patch-L, I pass it along to those who may have an interest.

Greater New York Councils will soon launch its new set of CSPs, a set of 6 to include the Council itself and the five boroughs. Please be aware nothing is 100% finalized yet but the plan is that they will be authorized for regular uniform wear during the next year. The basic design will feature the Newly opened 1 WORLD TRADE CENTER KNOWN AS The Freedom Tower, and the Statue of Liberty as one would view it from the water looking uptown at the Battery and beyond to the Empire State Building in the distance.

When this idea was planned we had hoped to launch these patches on 9/12, at the GNYC Program Launch (Steakout) but due to artist issues and Patch mfg. issues it was not possible and the process is still with the council and the patch company working out the details of the artwork so it will be a while before launch. Nothing is cast in stone but there is a plan to first launch the regular edition of the six flaps so people can get them and wear them as soon as they become available and they would be available from NYC outlets such as the Council Office and Scout Shop in Staten Island at Pouch Camp as well as Camp Alpine.

A special commemorative set of the 6 with silver Mylar borders will be available as well but only in sets. Number of sets to be made has not been finalized yet but it will be around 100 sets. They will only be made once and not reordered. After about 6 months, or when GNYC runs out of its original order of regular issues it will be given to National supply for sale in all the National Supply outlets including the New York City Scout shop in Manhattan and will become the regular CSP. At the end of a year, the plan is for the boroughs to have the option of continuing to use this CSP or to return to their own unique CSPs. The plan is for the council to continue to use this as their regular CSP going forth into the future and replacing the current white twill with white border CSP with this new one.

AGAIN I WANT TO REPEAT THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT, JUST A HEADS UP.

For those interested in the September 11 commemorative CSP from GNYC, you can get them here.
