Order state pins.

Returning for the 2023 SEASON! Individual team members trading pins with other team members from across NorCal at the State Tournament.  Team members will trade their special bridging creativity pin, purchased through the state, with other team members from different bridging creativity pins  so that they can collect all three from NorCal.  Pin trading in NorCal has returned and is ALIVE AND WELL.  Don’t miss out on this tradition of meeting other teams from NorCal and trading pins.
