Wow this site is pretty cool so far, I am not new to BoyScouts but have resently taken on the challenge of being the committee chair to start a brand new pack. I was looking for additional online trainings that I could take to the committee meetings to get all trained as quickly as possible. This site is an encouragement to start our own site. Please welcome Pack 805 from Wichita Ks. into the awsome journey of scouting.

I was a member of Troop 4 in the sixty's with Sam Patridge as Scoutmaster. This web site was a great look back at that time. This was outstanding; look at the good time I had with him and the Troop!

I noticed the story in the Union today about Troop 4 and thought I would check it out. I also was in Troop 4 in the 1960's when Sam Partridge was Scoutmaster. Like many I enjoyed Camp Pahatsi, Silver Beaver, and the many hikes up and around the Sierras.
I was just checking to see if your history was correct because the first Scoutmaster, Dr. Walter Thomas was my greatgrandfather. The first outing to Capitola was written in a booklet by Jack Curts and given to my greatgrandfather that I now have.
I myself left Troop 4 in the early 70's before making it to Eagle Scout then went into the "Order of The Arrows".

Greetings from Southern Illinois!
I know this is a long shot, but I saw your digital patch collection on your web site. I am looking for some old patches from the Egyptian Council 1940- 1994 [merged with the Greater St. Louis Area Council] , in Southern Illinois. Especially one that says Egyptian Council First Year, a 3" round, made of hard felt, yellow with black printing. There are also patches dated 1941, 1942 and 1943. All hard felt. and some arrowhead patches of soft felt 1944, 1945, 1946, Also looking for Coal Belt Area Council year book from 1924, 1925, 1926 or 1927. Any help would be appreciated.
I have been trading and collecting since 1963 and now only concentrate on items from Southern Illinois. I was in Troop 85, Herrin, IL where I earned my Eagle and am a past Lodge Chief of Ney-A-Ti Lodge, now merged with Lodge 100 and then with Lodge 51, I think. Have a ton of information on Scouting in Southern Illinois and have put some of that into a short history. I continually add to the story.
Any help is appreciated.

Tim, I noticed your website in a newspaper article and checked it out. You've put together an excellent site. For information, I was a member of Troop 4 with Sam Partridge in 1949,50,51 and 52...Many trips to Silver Beaver Lodge and the Rainbow Inn. Attended Camp Pahatsi as a member of the troop in 49 and as a counselor in 50 and 51. Attained Eagle Scout in the troop and also was the first northern Ca. scout to receive the God and Country Award...Was a leader in Post 4 and "once a scout, always a scout" is very true. I've been a member of Lions Club International for 27 years in Placervile area and we have always supported scouting....looks like all of you are keeping a fine tradition going.

I mate Scout, my name is Marcos Sergio Miretti, I am 29 years old and I am member of the team of formation of the school of wooden badge of the district 1 of San Francisco's city, in the county of Cordoba, Argentina.
The reason of this message is to comment him that in my times free of the escultismo I collect books and I specialize especially of the SCOUTING FOR BOYS that BADEN POWELL wrote but my objective is to collect different versions in different languages or languages.
What I want is that he/she answers me if he/she can tell me some addresses where I can change or to buy that book that is for my the Bible of the Scout. If he/she knows here of some scout that wants to exchange with me that material or other things, I leave him my postal data:

Thanks for hosting such a great site for T-4. I found your site when I was
looking for some historic material for camp
O-KI-HI for a personal writing project. I saw an area on your site of old
patches. Would you be interested in some pictues of patches of O-KI-HI from
1970 through about 1975. I attended this camp for many years as a scout and
still have all my old scout stuff (Just can't give it up). I was a Scout and
Explorer in T386 Carmichael, CA from 1969 through 1976. I received my Eagle
in 1973 and have great memories of O-Ki Hi and the area. My family still
tent (real tent on the ground) camps at Plumas Eueka State Park ( the wife
wants a real shower). Let me know if your interested in the patch pics.
