SCA “Flat Space Eagle”

Did you or your child experience the Flat Stanley phenomenon as a child? Well this challenge will allow you to relive those days with our Flat Space Eagle. The Space Eagle is a beloved SCA logo that was used from the 1960’s until 2007. So let’s help him fly again. Print him out and take him wherever you go; the mountains, trails, lakes, the supermarket. Everywhere 😊. Take a selfie and post it using #SCAGivingDay to help us meet our $2,000 challenge.
