It's amazing, a simple piece of cloth with a few stitches of colorful
threads sewn into its intricate crevices is born unto Scouting for yet another memorable
National Scouting Event. Yes we'll remember the friends we made, the 2 a.m. pizza parties,
the training and the never ending rain, but we bring home in a simple piece of cloth and
stitches the memories that will last us a lifetime. It's not some stitches thrown around,
it's a piece of art, crafted by the most meticulous of patch designers. A designer
imagining how the final product would look and how the stitches would become not only the
signature of his dedicated handiwork, but the signature of his Lodge. The value in the
stitches is not in the cloth, but in the memories we will cherish.
These pages represent the efforts of fellow ASTA members at NOAC in an
attempt to catalog all known memorabilia from this year's conference. We believe that we
have catalogued 99% of the memorabilia from the 1998 conference. Please use these images
as a reference for identifying your mementos. And don't forget, we'll do this all over
again in 2000. C'ya in Knoxville!
