The Thinking Times – Friday

   |   By


Welcome to the first edition of this year’s Thinking Times. Feel free to print them out and display them somewhere where you can take a few minutes during the day to think.

We hope that these provide you with daily stimulation giving you ‘food for thought’, a smile, a challenge, and maybe all three.

Badges

   |   By


Blair Atholl 2020 special badge

We wanted to maintain the traditional Blair Atholl yellow badge for 2020 participants, but have used the red border to reflect this year’s unusual circumstances.

All young people (Scottish and International) will receive a BA2020 badge, as will International Leaders who had registered and paid a deposit.

Scottish Leaders and their families, who had applied for Blair Atholl 2020, will be able to purchase an event badge – please keep an eye on your emails for details.

Blair Everywhere badge

The Blair Everywhere badge is styled after the White Cockade badge, which Explorers can earn at Blair Atholl by participating in a wide selection of activities over the course of the camp.

These are available to buy whether you’ve registered, joined in, or just want to add it to your collection. You’re welcome to buy multiples to swap or for your Scout group.

Both types of badges will be manufactured after Blair Everywhere, hopefully in 3-4 weeks, and sent out by our volunteer team. We can’t guarantee shipping dates.

Other merchandise

You can get mugs, badges, pop sockets, hoodies and other Blair merch on the Glasgow Scout Shop website.

Nights Away at home

If your leaders registered you for Blair Everywhere, the nights you spend sleeping in a tent or den at home will count towards your nights away badges.

If you registered for yourself, make sure you let your leaders know that you joined in, and how many nights you spent in your tent or den at home.

And of course, we’d love to see pictures of your set up! Share them with us on social media using the hashtag #BlairEverywhere
