What is a Trade-O-Ree (TOR):

  • A Trade-o-ree, also known as a TOR, is a Scouting event that is generally held in a large hall, banquet room, local Council office, National Guard armory, college or even a Church gym.
  • Trade-o-ree’s are held for the primary purpose of Scout memorabilia collecting, buying, selling or trading of items.
  • Some Trade-o-ree’s are put on by avid collectors, some are sponsored by Troops, Councils, Scout collecting associations and Order or the Arrow lodges.
  • A Trade-o-ree is a great place to acquire items, meet friends and learn about the hobby.
  • Golden Gate Area Council Memorabilia Sale (Proceeds benefit 2023 camperships).
  • Silent and Live Auctions.
  • Fun & Fellowship !
