Heard from the NOAC Trail

While I’m not able to attend NOAC myself this time around, I am receiving reports of items issued by the various New York OA Lodges.  I’ll share some of them here, noting where I need scans, trades or additional information.

  • Section NE-3A – Like its predecessor Sections NE-3A and NE-3B a set has been issued for the Section, with a flap issued for each of the 10 individual lodges and a common 3″ round jacket patch.  The lodges in the Section include 30, 34, 95, 159,  172, 219, 247, 339, 402 and 417.  For some of the lodges, this may be there last issue. – images needed
  • Ranachqua Lodge #4 – issued one flap
  • Half Moon Lodge #28 – trader set, delegate set, neckerchief – images and trades needed
  • Tkaen Dod #30 – no issue but part of Section NE-3A set
  • Gahonga Lodge #34 – no issue but part of Section NE-3A set
  • Man-a-hattin Lodge #82 – 2-piece trader set – image needed

You can find other issues that I have previously reported by searching on 2009 NOAC or NOAC 2009.

Please forward any scans or trade offers to nyoatrader@nullnyoatrader.com.  I have my #24 2-piece set to trade for NYS NOAC issue needs.

So What’s Up With the Blue Book?

Periodically a question is asked on Patch-L on the status of the Blue Book.  Without going into long detail, the facts of which I am not totally privy to, there has not been an issue available since the 2006 NOAC.

In a post speculating on the total number of issues for the 2009 NOAC, Roy More states:

We’ve taken over the management and publication of the OA Blue Book so we’re heading home from pre-NOAC to see that the system can handle all of these new additions. What an undertaking.

If you follow the link,  you find yourself here:

OA Blue BookThere are several posts, but no comments yet.

A few tidbits from the posts:

The site for The Blue Book is, we think logically, OABlueBook.com. The site is very much “under development” but some of the things we will now be able to do:
– Anyone will be able to give submissions for new issues and varieties.
– Users will be able to add comments about issues including historical information such as number made, when issued, any restrictions, etc.
– More easily include new areas such as lodge totem pins or other memorabilia.

Should there be an overhaul of the issues in Blue Book as stated in the last, 6th, edition?

How do we handle lodges that do not have a number?

Go check it out and leave Ray your thoughts.
