I've seen some wild ones but the one that still makes me laugh
was the "Lime Green Disco Suit Patrol" that ran a Klondike sled
at Minsi Trails Council's Snowbound competition at Trexler
Scout Reservation a few years ago.
These guys had a patrol flag with an outstanding rendering of
a guy wearing a lime-green disco suit and swinging a pocket
watch on a chain similar to the picture on the cover of the
Grateful Dead's album, Shakedown Street (so how old am *I*?).
I've also run into a Couch Potato Patrol, a Yak Patrol and a Fruit
Fly Patrol. Hey, at least they're being creative :)
