While patch trading wasn't the only thing happening at the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree it was just as popular as ever with the Scouts, Scouters, and visitors. On tonights episode I'm going to give my personal take on patch trading at the Jamboree. I'll give my opinions and share my experiences having gone in for all 7 days that visitors were allowed to do so. My guest is Rick Bedsworth who was in charge of the Collections merit badge staff representing ISCA. Rick will share news of the 600+ Scouts who earned the badge along with his take on how the patch trading went at the Jamboree.
Tens of thousands of Boy Scout youth and adult members are packing their bags and heading out for the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree this week. You can count me among the crowd that is going to stream into a sleepy corner of West Virginia for the big event. In tonight's episode of Scouting Hot Finds Radio I've got an update on the Mt. Hope Trade-O-Ree from Todd Kelly. The TOR is going to run concurrent with the Jamboree and is opening Saturday! I will also share some important information from Russell Smart regarding patch trading at the 2013 National Jamboree. I hope to see some of you up in the mountains of WV over the next two weeks.
This is the show that all Boy Scout memorabilia collectors have been waiting for. At the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree patch trading will be an official scheduled activity for the first time ever. Patch trading between adult Scouters and youth Scouts will be allowed at a Jamboree for the first time in decades. I would go so far as to say that my guest tonight is responsible for most of those changes. As an avid collector and one of the top volunteers helping to plan and organize this summer's 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree Russell Smart has all the answers that we've been waiting to hear. What is the deal with visitors? What about all those privately made staff patches? What are the rules and how are they going to be enforced? Can Scouts trade during the day while they are supposed to be doing program activities? If you are going to the Jamboree then this is a show you need to dial in on.
What's the plan for this summer's big 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree? The Volunteer Program Group Chairman Russell Smart is my guest tonight and he'll take us inside the game plan for the Jamboree. One of the features is comparing how this new Jamboree experience compares to the familiar A.P. Hill setting that many of us are familiar with. This is Part 2 of an interview that started with an incredible account of the new Summit Bechtel property in West Virginia.

The Legendary Tony Salinas changed the way people bet on games. In Major League Baseball, for instance, Tony was the first to chart umpire tendencies, as he knew the strike-zone size used by each in the American and National leagues. Salinas also knew who would likely be the first to eject a player, and who would walk away from a conflict.
In the National Basketball League, Salinas developed the Zig-Zag Theory for betting playoff games, with bettors betting for teams coming off a playoff loss. And in the National Football League, it has been said that Salinas knows more about offensive strategy than most NFL offensive coordinators.

Michelle “Mickey Hall hails from Cape Cod Massachusetts but was born in Queens, NY. Adopted to a family from the West Indies, and the only child, Mickey grew up always surrounded by questions of not only “who she was” but also “why she was different?” While adapting to the quietness of Cape Cod from the streets of New York, she struggled every day to understand the feelings that were surfacing when she looked at other women.
It wasn't until she entered college, which she found herself surround by other women who felt the same, that she broke out of her shyness and grew into the strong, proud Lesbian she is today. Surviving unimaginable abuse at the hands of family members and even the label of the “Black Sheep” of the family to not having contact with family for over 30 years, Mickey has come full circle and has been having a wonderful time reconnecting with family members.
