A Postal Survey of the Senior Girl Scout Round-up held at Farragut Reservation, Bayview,
Idaho from July 17-26, 1965.
The United States Post Office set up regular equipment in a large wall tent. Throughout
the camp were located ten collection boxes. All the mail deposited in these boxes as well
as that deposited at the branch office was collected and transported to Spokane, Washington. At
the Spokane Post Office the mail was cancelled, distributed and dispatched to destinations. Spokane
is about sixty miles from Bayview, Idaho.
There were three different event cancellations for this event. A standard Pitney-Bowes meter machine with a Bayfield, Idaho die was also used with red die.
There were at least three philatelic covers advertised for sale prior to the Roundup. Souvenirs
such as post cards and stationary, maps and personal momentos have been seen with one of the cancellations
applied. A set of nine Round-up post cards were available for sale.
