Section NE-3B 2006 NOAC Jacket Patch

In addition to the 8 flaps (one from each of the 8 lodges in Section NE-3B) a JAcket PAtch was also issued. The jacket patch uses the common design, in this case each of the 8 lodges individual names appear on the signpost with the mileage from the Council Headquarters to NOAC. Images supplied by George Jennings.

Section NE-3B 2006 NOAC Jacket Patch

Now my question is this, the Blue Book convention would seem to be that since each lodge is separately mentioned and approved the design and issuance; this JP should have 8 BB designations (1 for each lodge).  There is precedent for this in the following NYS issues with the three 1996 NOAC flaps from 64, 443 and 444 and in the chevron from 4(X6),24(X7),49(etc.),82, 112.

What are your thoughts?

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Nakowa Chapter N1

Sometimes months go by without finding a chapter need.  But I’ve been fortunate this month in getting two needs.

This one is the Nakowa Chapter N1.  The neckerchief celebrates the 10th Annivesary of Nakowa Chapter and the 50th Anniversary of the OA.  Nakowa Chapter merged in June of 1979.  This is one of my last Nakowa needs.  The only other is the X2 and Indianhead-shaped patch.

The N1 was not pictured on oaimages but I’ll be sending John the image shortly.

Suanhacky Lodge #49 2006 NOAC Delegate Set S58 X38

As I posted yesterday, Suanhacky Lodge realized they were short on their Gold Mylar bordered delegate sets. What no one realized until late at NOAC, was that the reorder had yellow borders and details not GMY. So their are now two new Delegate sets. The second set contains 9 LED Lights; 4 on the flap and 5 on the chevron. It is pictured below, you can make out the holes for the lights better in the flames on the flap. The lights in the chevron are 4 in the front of the fire truck and one in the doorway on the extreme right of the patch.
