New York State OA Area Conclave Grid

Checklist

Prior 1973 and the realignment into Sections, groups of OA Lodges were referred to as Areas. I recently published a Checklist for Sections containing a New York OA Lodge.

Below you will find a checklist of the the Area conclaves where at least one of the lodges in each of the listed Areas was headquartered in New York during that years conclave.

I’d appreciate any feedback on missing Areas with a New York OA Lodge or if you feel a Area did not contain a New York Lodge.

Please include any details about the missing sections including which New York Lodges were in the Area in the given year.

New Issue Don Izard brings word of an event patch from Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 from 2006. I didn’t see this one while at the TOR earlier this month, but Don has kindly provided an image of the 2006 Summer Conclave patch.

Kitchawonk Lodge #32 Fake Flap ZS1

Focus on FakesUpdated to reflect corrected issue number

Another Fake from a New York State OA lodge which never issued a patch. Never heard of Kitchawonk Lodge before? The Blue Book provides the following detail for Kitchawonk Lodge:

Chartered: 1927
Lodge Totem: Kingfisher
Council: Yonkers in Yonkers, NY
Change: 1942: Rechartered after previously disbanding, changing name to Tahawus

Well now there is a fake flap.

Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 Ellicott Chapter R2?

DiscoveryA couple of weeks ago at the Western New York TOR, I came across three discoveries, two were from Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159. The first was the Ellicott Chapter R1 The Second was also purportedly from Ellicott Chapter too. If you check out the design below, you can see that while it has the lodge number, it does not have either the Lodge or Chapter name.

Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee #159 Ellicott Chapter R2

Assuming this is actually an Ellicott chapter issue as opposed to a lodge issue, the Blue Book stats will be:

Ellicott R2 RED R BLU – – WHT WWW, 159, Ceremonial Team. No face on Chief

Does anyone have more information on this issue?

Onteroraus Lodge checklist updates

ChecklistDon Tuttle who maintains the Onteroraus Lodge checklist at his website, Scoutgraphics Ink USA is looking for some images.

Since returning from the WSJ, I’ve had a little time to add a couple new conclave neckerchiefs to the Onteroraus checklist. They include:

1984 NE-2D SECTION CONCLAVE, Camp Tuscarora neckerchief
1985 “WE WHO LOVE THE WOODS AND CAMPING” 2-D neckerchief

The ’85 neckerchief includes a standing bear in the design which I assume represents Wakanda Lodge (Stuben Area Council, Bath, NY), lodge hosts for the conclave that year.

I have not seen any patches associated with these neckers but assume they exist. If any NY OA collectors can provide a scan of these, I would be glad to add them to my website at http://www.scoutgraphicsink.com. Click on Lodge Flaps and Other Memorabilia.

Can anyone help him out with some scans?

Updated Theme – A New Look

I’ve updated the look of the NY OA Trader blog. Still a work in progress. I was having some issues with the old theme which hadn’t been updated in 18 month.

The new theme allows me to utilize some of the newer features in WordPress. It is still a work in progress.

Let me know what you think.

Onondaga Lodge #516 Fake Flap ZF1

Focus on Fakes Ray Gould sends along an image of the ZF1 Fake Flap from Onondaga Lodge #516. This flap is currently not pictured on OA Images, so I’ll send a copy along to John too.

Onondaga Lodge #516 Fake Flap ZF1

The Blue Book Currently describes it as:
ZF1 RED R YEL BRN 5×7 mm arrowhead

I think we need to add Crude uneven lettering in Lodge Name
