|Description: 1977 marked our tenth year of Pine Trail
Reservation. To mark the occasion, Jack Roy again inserted a special mark on our
standard camp shield patch - a Black "10". As we had done for several years,
we also produced ceramic coffee mugs with the 10th year design, as well as
Quite a few of these patches were received by the trading post with thread breaks. It became something of an obsession to collect odditities with the trading post staff, of course, having an upper hand! One common error, was the omission of one or more of the smaller trees. Perhaps from the running joke about several that were found with only one small tree (which some jokingly called an 11th year patch), the next year saw an intentional issue of patches with fewer than five trees to intentionally depict the 11th year.
Both twill and solid White embroidered version were again available as we had provided for several years. No restrictions existed on how many could be purchased and they were plentiful. The design used was the version from 1976 which had enhanced the look of the small trees to look more like the intended cedar trees.
