Kintecoying Lodge #4 New Regular Issue Flap S3

Hot on the heals of its Charter Member flap Kintecoying Lodge #4 held its Day One event on April 13, 2013 to mark the merger of the 5 GNYC Lodges and the creation of the new combined lodge. The new flap design was revealed and put on sale for attending lodge members.

The 5 rays from the sun represent the five founding lodges. In addition to the Charter Member Flap, a regular flap was issued. This version has a White border and does not have the Charter Member on the flap, the design is otherwise the same as the S1.

Currently they are only available to lodge members at lodge events and meetings, but are otherwise not restricted. In addition they are available via mail order within the lodge and will be available out of council after May 31.

At the moment, I have some to trade for my regular issue flaps that I do not have in dupe, new NYS OA issues or items from my need-lists.

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Let us consider, brethren, we are struggling for our best birthrights and inheritance, which being infringed, renders all our blessings precarious in their enjoyments, and, consequently trifling in their value. Let us disappoint the Men who are raising themselves on the ruin of this Country. Let us convince every invader of our freedom, that we will be as free as the constitution our fathers recognized, will justify.” – Samuel Adams, A State of the Rights of the Colonists, 1772
