Royal Rangers History

November 1, 2021

Do you have any history for your activities at outpost, sectional, district, regional, or national events for 2021 or before? We would love to get a copy and get it posted on the history site. Whether is it Pow Wow packets, FCF packets, posters, documents, patch scans, staff listings, etc. All history for your district and section can be posted. Please contact Mark Oliver and it will get updated quickly. We ask that patch scans/photos be a minimum resolution of 300x300. If you take a photo, please put one patch per picture and take the photo close to the patch so we get it up close.

In 2002, the National Royal Rangers office made the decision to no longer elect 2 boys to serve as the "National Scout" and the "Assistant National Scout". It was decided that there would be eight national scouts. They would be elected by their respective territories with the winner of the election named the national scout, and the 1st runner up would be the territorial scout.
