Richard F. Raber (NSS 6695) volunteered and sponsored the project of producing a patch and pin for the 2020 NSS Virtual Convention. As a serious NSS patch and pin collector, he could not see the NSS having a gap in the series of convention patches, so he “insisted” that the staff approve one being made. With the encouragement of Gary K. Soule, the “king” of cave patch collectors, this will become reality as approved by the convention staff. Rich is having only 100 of each item made this year, so to keep your collection complete, you might want to order quickly. All orders must be sent by August 1, 2020, or the end of the Virtual Convention.
The cost of each patch is $10 and each pin is $12. This includes postage. The difference in cost this year compared with an in-person convention is the envelopes and mailing.
Rich will donate all profits to the NSS.
Rich will only be able to accept payment by a check or postal money order. Payment should be made to Richard Raber and mailed to P.O. Box 532, Effingham, IL 62401.
