Congratulations to the Falcon Patrol for Earning the National Honor Patrol Award!
A TROOP'S BEST patrols exhibit enthusiasm, teamwork, and camaraderie—that special spark known as patrol spirit.
How does your patrol measure up? Here are some tips for building patrol spirit and a way to reward success:
- Choose a good name. This is a key step toward building patrol identity. Use descriptive words, like Roaring River Rats or Fearless Falcons.
- Create a distinctive patrol yell. Let the troop hear that yell often to show your spirit.
