A couple of years ago some of the youth involved in planning our camporee
wanted to wear different epulets but were convinced that a special patch
was more tradeable after the event. "Staff" at the camporee got the
camporee patch with staff embroidered on it. Each person got three --
two for shirts (to be worn during the camporee) and one sewn onto the
camporee hat. BTW, we were going to put "staff" on the back of the hat
but the adjustable band got in the way . . .
I think the staff patch helped get people involved in the planning. If you
didn't attend planning meetings, you couldn't order staff patches. And the
next year, participation in planning was even greater. I guess the word
got out . . .
