07 Scout Catalog
More fun than getting the SEARS catalog before Christmas when I was a kid. :-)

The new BSA catalog arrived today. The first thing I noticed was all the Pinewood Derby stuff - sirens, rockets, flashing lights, whistles, axle guards, and even a Master Mechanics kit. Now, the $4.00 car can easily cost over $30.00 - and that's if you don't bother splurging for the 'Pinewood Derby Speed Secrets' book!

Instead of one big catalog, BSA is going to be sending out multiple catalogs, each with a different audience. This one seems to have a theme of [What's New] with lots of decorations, crafts, gadgets, and gifts but not much scouting stuff.

I do like the Switchback zip-off pants that are listed. I've had mine for around six months now and like the light-weight and non-scratchy feel. We'll see how they hold up to 30 days of backpacking this summer.

Oops, found one other thing I thought was funny. Right in the midst of the catalog, there is a 'Child Guard Firearm Safety Device' - a good idea if you have guns, but seems weird in with ponchos, socks, and flashlights. :-)
