How to properly wear BSA service stars


Been involved in Scouting for more than a year? You get a gold star.

Correction to previously posted uniforms sales

Incorrect information was previously posted regarding some great deals on uniforms in February and March. The original post has been corrected, and here is the most up to date information we have…

From March 16-22nd, the Portland Scout Shop AND the Longveiw Scout Shop (Confirmed by the Longview Scout Shop) will have a “buy one, get one free” sale. This can be applied to nylon type uniforms. Example, buy one pair of pants, get the second free. Or you can “buy a pair of pants, get the shirt free.”

There is also a “potential” sale on on February 29th, they will have 29% discounts on uniform stuff. Also, for every $100 spent, a $29 gift card will be presented to the purchaser. At this time it appears this will not happen in Longview or Portland. We will post more information as it becomes available.
