Many may not be aware of a recent BSA Council consolidation that appears to have occurred with little fanfare. The territory of Virigin Islands Council has been absorbed into National Capital Area Council.
The Virigin Islands Council had struggled for years. Arawak lodge existed only on paper and was non-functioning. While Puerto Rico Council may have seemed like a better fit based upon geography, it has been said NCAC was better positioned to support Scouting in this US territory.
An online price guide is now the newest feature added to this site. Currently, the price guide contains 338,027 records of compiled real sales data and additional statistics to help gauge a patch's current "market value".
Members may now also create free PDF files for any lodge's issues and create a private online inventory of their collections.
The music to the OA song has been used in many
places since it was first composed by Alexis Lvov in
1833 as the Russian (Tsarist) National Anthem. A
performance of this orignal anthem can be found in
MP3 format at the link below. Does your lodge sound
like this when they sing? *grin*
