Dealer Site of the Quarter
Brush Creek Trading Company - http://www.oapatch.com
Brush Creek is another large dealer with interests mainly in Order of the Arrow and camp patches. As far as web sites go, they have one of the more impressive ones. They are nice folks and I've always gotten some good deals from them. Stop by and see if can find anything you need. I bet you can.
Reference Site of the Quarter
HTML Patch Color Key - http://www.alaskavistas.com/patch/patchcolor.html
Alan has taken his best shot at replicating all of the colors listed in the Blue Book with HTML hexadecimal codes. If you're not sure what a color is supposed to look like, head on over to the site and take a look.

Individual Site of the Quarter
Paul Collett - Always There Trading - http://www.trade.norwesters.net
Paul has one of the most complete trading sites I've seen on the web. He has a long list of dupes, so stop by and see if you can make some trades with him. He has some good looking patch pages for sale as well.

Misc. Site of the Quarter
World Jamboree Patch Site - http://scout.simplenet.com/wjamboree/worldjam98.htm
This site, maintained by an American scout troop, contains scans of country contingent patches from the 19th World Jamboree. I have no desire to collect any type of World Jamboree patches, but I still found the site completely interesting. Stop by and see what you think.
