I agree that event-specific patches are appropriate for our group as with
any other group. Every scouting group at every level makes makes for a
particular event, sometimes just for a particular year (Great Salt Lake
Council, BSA has its Diamond Anniversary shoulder patch this year, for
example). Likewise, groups, even informal ones, can and do have a more or
less generic patch as an indicator of membership in the group.
The former patch represents a member of group participating in an event or
activity, while the latter is simply indicative of membership in the group.
We could ue both types of patches. I think it's definitely worth
Btw, along the lines of Ian's suggestion, maybe the FDL (WOSM-style) could
be incorporated (with permission from appropriate organisations) as a
stylized 't' at the end of Internet: Interne+ Scouts where + represents
the FDL. This would place the FDL at the center of the patch, symbolic of
the place scouting occupies for many of us, if not all of us.
