Name the Turtle Contest 2013

The “Turtle” is returning April 27 and 28, 2013 and it needs a name. Try your hand at naming the 2013 “Turtle”. If your name is selected, it will be used on the neckerchief that will be given to all participants. In addition you will be recognized at the Campfire with some neat prizes.

What is the “Turtle”? The “Turtle” is a very special Buckeye District Camporee and comes only once every 4 years on two feet, two wheels or possibly two paddles. The “Turtle” will be 52 years old in 2013.

Previous names have been (in order since 1961): Silver Turtle (1), Gold Turtle (2), Bronze Turtle (3), Green Turtle (4), Bicentennial Turtle (5), Silent Turtle (6), Diamond Turtle (7), Presidential Turtle (8), Discovery Turtle (9), Pedal Paddle Pack Turtle (10), Dave’s Turtle (11), Freedom Turtle (12) and the Century of Scouting Turtle (13th).

As you can see, the name needs to be short and end with “Turtle”.
