As a Roundtable Commissioner and Cub Trainer I have designed a magnetic Uniforming game kit and the answers for an overhead. I use four sets and divide the leaders into 4 groups and let them have fun putting on the patches and pins. If you want a set designed for your council using your Council shoulder strip drop me a line. I will need a clear copy of your strip. (about 300 dpi is great)
