Jason - I thought Juniors didn't have to pay the $10 penalty for not being PDGA members? I was going to sign up my son, but was worried I was paying $25 for him when the fee is normally waived.
Juniors are exempt from the $10 Non PDGA Member fee.  If your registering online, just check the PDGA Current box and leave the number at 0.  I'll know whats going on.

Unless I missed it somewhere (which Im not doubting), is there a picture of what the patches look like or when they are expected to be available?

Also, am I reading it right that there has been 17 free memberships for the 2013 season?
I've attached the proof I received for the patches.  I'm expecting them to be delivered in the next couple of days.

To answer you other question, yes, there have been 17 free memberships this year.  All of them were 2012 purchases after the J-Town Fest which qualify for a free 2013 membership.

just tried look at the links and they aren't working

Mick updated the file and changed the file name, so those links will no longer work.  The new files can be found in the sidebar of this page in the section labeled Leagues under the heading Information.
