After I took a BALOO course last year I was disappointed to find that there was no "BALOO-trained" patch available from BSA, I designed one and ordered a batch.*

 

Now I'm wondering if others have done the same thing - creating a private patch or pin for some BSA achievement that doesn't have an official recognition device from BSA. This is different than ordering custom patches for a Cub-O-Ree or similar events, but rather, for example, a custom square knot patch.

 

Have folks here seen that done by anyone else?

 

* Once I figure out how I'll upload a picture.

I don't know if I'd consider taking the BALOO course an "achievement"?  I think it's part of the process of being a Cub Scout leader.

Do we need recognition patches every time we take a training course?

Eph, if it motivates you (or others) to get more training and makes others aware of the course.....Go for it!

 

Patches are made for UofS, Camporee, etc. and all sorts of other reasons.

With the loop it lets everyone know it's to be worn on the right pocket where any and all bSA logo temporary patches are put.  Way to go, looks nice.

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)
