Three or four weeks ago I put out a question about how different units had
decorated their trailers with Scout logos, symbols, etc. As usual you all
came through and here is a summary of the replies:
Most units had it painted on, either by a sign painter, or someone in the
Troop. Most took a slide or made a transparency of existing artwork and
projected it onto the trailer.
Several took artwork into a sign shop and had a decal made (fairly expensive
if you can't get it donated).
One painted a symbol on plywood and bolted it to the trailer.
Bob Amick mentioned that the BSA does have a trailer sign as a supply item
(catalog # 1995). It costs $29.95, is about 18 inches in diameter, and is
made of reflective sign material.
What are we going to do? I don't know yet. One of our fathers works at one
of the local prisons--they have an auto body program there and he's looking
into it--we may get it done for free or for materials cost. If that doesn't
pan out I'm going to hit up one of the car dealers--his sons were in the
Troop a few years back.
