I don't know if I've got a sympathetic case of the nerves today or what, but my den's Arrow of Light ceremony is in a few hours and I've got a heck of a bellyache. (I've got to keep paying attention to getting enough fiber in my diet. Argh.)

I put the finishing touches on the arrow awards last night and promise to take photos of the Scouts with theirs, although they haven't put the patches on the pennant yet (example) so they'll be getting their arrow, coup feather and plaque (example) today and finishing their pennant later.

I'm off to take a shower and braid my hair so I'm ready with plenty of time to spare. In the meanwhile, feel free to laugh at this from drinkatworkblog: Mrs. Montesano's Third-Grade Class Thanks Columbia Pictures for Inviting Them to the World Premiere of "Basic Instinct 2".

Pennant for AOL Plaque
Hi There,

I ran across your sight while looking for those pennants. I could have sworn I found them online somewhere besides Acorn Awards for 10 bucks. Just wondered if you had seen just the pennants only somewhere? Our AOL is next month...wish me luck, lol.

Re: Pennant for AOL Plaque
I haven't seen any other retailers that specifically sell the pennant, but your could easily make your own with felt and use Velcro to fasten the felt back on itself after looping it over the arrow. Any fabric store should have felt by the yard; 72" wide felt runs around $4 to $5 per yard and you can easily cut 2-3 pennants per yard.

When my family was preparing things for my brother's Eagle Court of Honor, we used a basic shadowbox frame from an arts and crafts store. I covered the backing of the frame in navy-blue cotton adhered with spray adhesive, then attached my brother's patches with tacky glue. To hold his Webelos colors shoulder pin, I glued a strip of felt to the backing and pinned it into the felt after the glue dried.

I did a similar shadowbox frame with khaki fabric for his Boy Scout badges and both frames have held up well since then -- I've only had to reglue one patch I didn't use enough glue on the first time.

Good luck with your Arrow of Light ceremony! Don't be afraid to lean on your pack committee for support and suggestions, there's usually someone who's been through it ready to reassure you that it will go okay. I hope your son will jump right into the adventure of Boy Scouting!
