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.

This camp never happened. Paul Stanek tried to conduct it on three separate occasions. It canceled all three times due to low or no interest. No patch or insignia was ever produced (based on our research). The idea was to be an introductory training to set one on the path to becoming an FAA Certified Pilot and earn their wings. The book training was to be conducted in the Johnnie Barnes Lodge and the flight training was going to be conducted out on Racehorse Meadow. Sever leaders who owned their own planes were going to be instructors for the camp, bring their planes, and provide live instruction on take off and landing in Racehorse Meadow. In 1991, 2-3people signed up but not enough to hold the camp. (Anthony Hubbard was one of the ones who signed up and provided this summary).
