Tom Wadnola sends along two scans from the 1973 NE-2C Conclave.  This was the first Section Conclave after the realignment from Areas to Sections.

The first NE-2C Conclave was held at Camp Cutler and hosted by Ty-Ohni Lodge#95.

There was a pocket patch:

To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” —Thomas Jefferson

Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 1977 NOAC Delegate Neckerchief N8.7

One of the ‘fun’ parts of my job as the NYS Blue Book Editor (and as a collector of NY OA), is the discovery of previously uncatalogued issues.  The Williamsville TOR held each September just outside of Buffalo has proved a fertile ground for new discoveries.  I wrote up a Ty-Ohni 1977 NOAC neckerchief back in September 2006 which had only been added in Blue Book VI.

Now another version has appeared.  Mike Knittel shares the image and the following information.  Each contingent member was given several of the red bordered neckerchiefs to trade, however there was a gold bordered version which was given one per contingent member to wear at the event.

Tentatively, pending verification I would call this the N8.7 and the Blue Book stats would be:

Can anyone else provide further information?

Area 2-E 1972 Conclave

When it comes to Area 2-E conclaves, the premier site would be Mike Hulsizer’s Area 2 E Conclave Memorabilia, but I will attempt to include 2-E conclaves here as well.  The 1972 Area 2-E Conclave was held at Camp Gorton and hosted jointly by Wakanda Lodge #186 and Ga Goh’ Sa Lodge #547.

There were 2 issues for this event, a pocket patch and a neckerchief.

Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 eX2008 Spring Fellowship

Last weekends Western New York Traders Association TOR brought a few new issues to lights (and filled a few needs too).  One of the new issues uncovered is courtesy of Mike Knittel.  He allowed me to photograph several Ty-Ohni issues which were not in the Blue Book and are needs of mine.

The first one is a new event issue from Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 issued for the  2008 Spring Fellowship.
