“The mobs of the great cities add just so much to the support of pure government as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people, which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.” —Thomas Jefferson (1787)

I contacted Gavin M. a long time member of the lodge and who owned a complete Nick Stoner and Thay-En-Da-Ne-Gea Lodge #418 collection. HE advised that he had nver seen that slide nor has any other 418 members he checked with.

Does anyone have any further information on this slide?

It sold for the Buy It Now Price of $ 27.95.

Section NE-2A 2016 Project Leap Staff Patch

Still in clean up mode, a daunting task, and I’m finally at the bottom of the Section NE-2A issues. This is a relatively recent one for the Section NE-2A 2016 Project LEAP, the Staff version. Project LEAP was held on January 31, 2016 at the Connecticut Fire Academy in Suffield, CT

I had previously written about the Participant Version here.

Section NE-2A 2016 Project Leap Staff Patch

It does not say Staff, but can be distinguished from the Participant Version by the reversed colors.

This is a need of mine if anyone has one available.

“[T]he germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body … working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped from the States, and the government of all be consolidated into one.” —Thomas Jefferson (1821)

State of the Hobby – Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 X1 on Neckerchief

Sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t. An auction recently ended on eBay for a Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 X1 on Neckerchief.

417X1
Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

Three bidders made five bids on this auction which started at $ 99.99. the winning bidder got it for $ 152.50 and went back to increase his maximum bid if it was required.

For those paying attention, the neckerchief had been available the previous week for a minimum bid of $ 149.99 and closed without a bid. So the underbidder and the actual winner could have one it the previous week for a few dollars less.
