eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter
Friday Morning Edition
August 26, 2016

How many of you can relate to this.  I was so stretched thin by family on Thursday (2 open houses) that I was not able to pack for the TOR and was dead tired at 9:30 PM.  However, I sorta sprang awake at midnight and now I've been packing for 3 hours while the house is quiet.  There is nothing like getting ready to push off for a TOR.
Vintage eBay Boy Scout Auctions This Weekend
So here is the story on the 12 Inch Eagle Scout Medal.  I bought a collection from a Scouter who was active in Augusta, GA and the Charleston, SC area.  His dad had been a professional Scouter.  In one of the boxes there was this intricately made giant Eagle Medal.  When I posted it to the Scout Patch Collectors as a whatzit I got lots of comments (and offers to purchase) but no firm answer.  So I have decided to give it away in my first ever Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter Sweepstakes.
My First Free Online Sweepstakes Has Started
As a reader of the Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter I invite you to enter my free drawing to win a 12 Inch Eagle Scout Medal.  This 1-of-A-kind piece stumped collectors in the Scout Patch Collectors Facebook Group.  Rather than sell it I've decided to turn it into a fun free giveaway using software that will select a winner at random from everyone that enters.
Auctions ending Friday and Saturday on eBay
All you have to do in order to enter the drawing is follow the link to my Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter Facebook page and enter your name and email address.  Once you submit the software keeps track of everyone and when the sweepstakes closes in a few weeks it will randomly pick a winner.  It's all on auto-pilot and it meets all of Facebook's rules.  Plus with me I want to treat all my readers fair as can be so I'm not drawing names out of a hat - it's all being done by a computer.
Boy Scout Memorabilia Auctions on eBay
Of course since this trip to Camp Durant will be my first TOR in a long time I'll be taking some pictures and sharing them online.  The tables are sold out and I have heard people are coming from all the surrounding states.  I might even play with some of my recording devices if I can get around to it to record video or some audio.

Whoops some of the auctions I built into this block ended early Friday morning.  Sorry about that!  I do have live auctions running on Jamboree pieces which are featured below as well.
I am making a detour on the way to Camp Durant to look at a collection.  My wife was rolling her eyes when I told her about it.  The bright side is that I'm taking a bunch of bulky Scout stuff from the garage to the TOR so hopefully the overall effect on the household of this weekend will be less "patch crap".
Have a great weekend,
