Section NE-2B 2001 Conclave Council of Chiefs Pocket Patch

I ha previously written about the 2001 Section NE-2B Conclave was hosted by Lenapehoking Lodge #IX and held at their Camp Lewis. The theme for the weekend was “2001 A Scouting OAdyssey.”

Section NE-2B had a history of issuing a limited number of patches for the COC and as a fundraiser. They typically had a different border color than the standard patches issued for the event.

In 2001, the COC issues had a GMY Border.

    Area 2-J 1964 Conclave Pocket Patch

    The 1964 Area 2-J Pocket Patch featured the Unisphere from the 1964-1965 New York Worlds Fair as the major element of its design. I’m only aware of this single issue for the event.

    Section NE-2A 2017 Project LEAP Pocket Patches

    The Section NE-2A 2016 Project LEAP, the Staff version. Project LEAP was held on January 8, 2017 at the Connecticut Fire Academy in Suffield, CT.

    The Section website describes it as:

    Together, Lodges will unite over common ideas, sharing, creating and innovating. This will be a day of fellowship, fun, and learning, including interactive training cells, lodge activities and brainstorming. During Project LEAP, a new Order of the Arrow program called LINK will be showcased. The purpose of the new Link program is to strengthen local OA programs across the country and improve the Order of the Arrow’s membership position nationally.

    As in previous years, there were two issues.

    Onteroraus Lodge #402 OA Neckerchief N3.5?

    one of Onteroraus Lodge #402 Neckerchiefs, the N3 seems to have an unlisted variation. I picked this one up about a year, since then I have seen at least one other. It is no where near as common as the un-piped variety.

    The design and coloring is the same as the N3, nut this one has LBL Piping.

    Onteroraus Lodge #402 OA Neckerchief N3.5?

    Onteroraus Lodge #402 OA Neckerchief N3.5?

    The piping appears to have been professionally applied.

    Does anyone know the rest of the story on this issue? An Executive Board Version, or just an updated reorder of the N3?

    Kittan Lodge #364 Elangomat Patch X25

    Kittan Lodge #364 has updated its black bordered Elangomat Patch. I had previously written about the Kittan Lodge #364 Elangomat X16. The new version has moved the torch from the right side of the patch to the left when viewing the image and the WWW’s are just white lettering not white outlined in black.
