Launch Legacies: Bling for your new Troop of Girls

January 18 update:  see this Bryan on Scouting Blog about the rollout of uniform parts and handbooks:  https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2019/01/18/details-on-scouts-bsa-uniform-handbook-availability-in-advance-of-feb-1-launch/  And from the National Director of Program, about whether items should be on sale as soon as received: “I’ve reached out to Supply several times this week about this; they are supposed to be sending an updated communication to their stores.  We want folks to be buying this stuff!!  ☺”

As noted in the prior message, there are some special items that are available for a new troop of girls that launches in 2019 – these items include:

  • 2019 aac new troop activity patchFree: Atlanta Area Council Scouts BSA girl troop activity patches for all your youth and leaders – wear these proudly on the right pocket of your field uniform shirt.  See the newly revealed design!

 

  • Free: An inaugural flag ribbon for your troop flag (the troop flag itself can be ordered through scoutshop.org, Item 618633 for $39.99).  Remember:  if you want the same troop number as your existing troop of boys, use it.  Yes, there will some sort of internal / reporting ScoutNet prefix or other designation, the exact nature of which is not known as of 1/12/19.  If you want a new number, work with your District Professional to see if it is available, and claim it as they require (forms and such).2019 aac new troop flag ribbont1219

As a place to put the bling, keep an eye out for announcements from the Atlanta Scout Shop (they are on Facebook) and from https://www.scoutshop.org/ for female tailored uniform parts.

 

While existing stock may work for some, the newly tailored pieces may be better for most.
