This thread might help. There's an explanation in Carl's first post.

A few more special items from the Sky of Gold celebration at NARAM 50.

First, Gleda's signed Sky of Gold hat from the event, purchased at the NARAM 55 Cannon Auction. The picture of Gleda and Emma is the photo Gleda uses for her Scholarship Fund autobiography page. It also brought Emma a lot of luck at NARAM 55.

Two very special commemorative Estes Scout kits withbody tubes hand rolled by Vern and Gleda.

Emma and Golden Scouts, #44 and #46, signed by Vern, Gleda, and Betty. Emma and I actually flew two other Scouts but kept these low number ones to be signed.

Unopened kit given to me by the Rocket Doctor, Ken Montanye.

That was really a great event! My thanks again to Ken, Carl, Sheryl, and Bruce for making the effort to find a way to celebrate that wonderful milestone. And to the great crew who ran NARAM 50 for making the Golden Scouts such an integral part of the event.

We really are blessed with some wonderful people in this hobby!

Gosh, how did they do all they did...look at all those kits! In particular, the 'NSL 2007 Family Portrait' poster. Carl had revived the company not too many years before that!! By the looks of all those kits, you'd think they'd been back in business for 20 years!!

What special people and what a special company....
