issued to Adult Staff and Counselors at 2014 Scoutmaster Bucky events

issued on special occasions by Scoutmaster Bucky usually for promotion or special recognitions. 25 of the 35 known to be in circulation were randomly given to participants at the December 27, 2014 Computers and Digital Technology Merit Badge Day.  While participants were told of the rarity of the black bordered versions, most likely were not coveted or the significance realized by those who received them.  Also, the closeness in shading to the standard brown border issues is not easily identified at a glance and may have ended up in some Scouts general patch pile after the event and over time.

Prototype Invasive Species Merit Badge - issued to youth participants at the Scoutmaster Bucky - Northern Star Council - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - Invasive Species Merit Badge Pilot Weekend. Highly controlled item - all extras were split and maintained by Scoutmaster Bucky and a representative of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service.  A small number of Boy Scouts were able to earn the prototype badge in the spring of 2013 when the pilot process was tried with a small classroom group.

The YAK was introduced as a character representation of the new Youth Advancement and Knowledge College at the Northern Star Council's Fall University of Scouting.  The YAK College was for youth only and all youth participants at the Fall 2012 U of S received this large YAK patch which was adorned with a gold tassel and the numerals "12".  The YAK was developed to disassociate the Scoutmaster Bucky program and persona to make transition to a new College Dean easier in the future. The YAK Program was morphed into a new Youth Leadership Training focus in 2015 and the YAK character retied to the memories of many Scouts, although the patch itself is still highly coveted by youth and adults alike.
