Wood Badge Patch Set 1975-1998
George Washington Council

Randall Holden writes about the 1979 Yards Creek round patch:
"I attended that Wood Badge course as a trainee. My number was NE IV-19-25 and I was in the Owl patrol. NE IV-19-25 stands for Northeast Region, Section 4 (our assigned area, council wise), course 19 (our training class), and 25 was my registration number (given only to those Scouts that complete the course). Similar to a troop, the training course is set up with patrols eg. Beaver, Bobwhite, Buffalo, Eagle, Fox, and Owl were on our course. The more people at the course, the more patrols."

"There was a leadership patrol with a SPL, SM, ASM, and a course a director to assist the SM. Some of the titles have changed over the years but principles remain the same. Each patrol has a Coach Counselor, now called Troop Guides. These are your contacts until you complete your 'ticket'. Your ticket is basically your outline as to how you take your training on this course and apply it to whatever role you are performing in Scouting. Most tickets take a year, take some longer. At the end, when you complete your ticket' there is a review and an awards ceremony where you receive your beads."

"There was a problem getting the patch for this Wood Badge course. GWC did not have any money in their budget for the patches. I called Moritz and they delivered the patches in less than a week so I could distribute them at the final weekend's feast as my patrol's 'thank you'. The design I used for the NE IV-19 Woodbadge was a generic patch, only the words changed from order to order. There are probably 200 uses of this design, including four camps here in NJ (NoBeBoSco, Brookville, Passaic Valley Camps, and Southern NJ)."

Editor's Notes:
Thanks Randell for the Wood badge discussion. These rules have changed a couple of times over the years. The best way to see the latest rules is to do a web search for Wood Badge codes.
