I'm currently inactive with a Troop, but I'm an Eagle with 20 years of Scouting/Scouter history. My son will soon be of age, so I'm hoping to order for future use!

Woodhunter,
This is a really good way to introduce hammock hanging to a troop. Nothing motivates a Scout more than a badge to add to his collection. And it is fun, they usually walk away with a DIY hammock and a way to stay out of the mud when it rains.

Not sure what the problem is, all of the ones posted work for me. If you want I or someone else can be the relay if you want to post on here what you want.

Need: Member Name, Troop, Location, Quantity (20 is minimum)

Right now they are up to 440 which they listed makes them 85 cents each
but it is showing for my 30 it will cost me $22.20. My math that makes them 74 cents each so not sure which is correct but either way it is great to get another order placed!

The calcs are correct. Shipping to you is the same if you order 20 or 40 badges ($5.35). So the more badges you order the lower cost per badge. Shipping from the vendor should be pretty close, but I will get a final shipping cost once we get a number to them. As of now final prices should be pretty close.

Friends,
Last days to order. I had a lot of interest last time after the order was placed and it was too late.

Tomorrow I will lock ordering and finalize costs. Then I will stand up the payment process.

Thanks

Friends,
Today is the Last day to order. Tomorrow I will lock down ordering and finalize costs. Then I will stand up the payment process.

I have contacted the embroider and confirmed all costs, and time. I will need to get all payments in before 4/07 so that I can get an order placed to meet the printing schedule.
