Bruce Richardson's Rocker Segments Collection

National Supply has, for many years, made rocker segments available. Users would surround existing patches--most commonly 3" rounds--to indicate what years the user had participated at the camp or event. Rocker segments have been used by many camps to indicate participation in a specific activity while at the camp. I'm thinking of the Philmont segments or perhaps Voyageur (Training) segment from Region 7 Canoe Base. My collection mostly focusses on year segments. But I've passively collected other segments that go with red, yellow, green, and blue. Many camps issue segments--year or topical--in the camps colors. I'm thinking of Owassipe for instance. I'm not collecting those. Just the red, yellow, green, and blue from National and an emphasis on the red segments.

Sometimes both "over" or "under" segments are available for a given year. The positioning can enhance readability.
