Ktemaque Lodge #15 2018 NOAC Numbered Set SMY Border S77 X44

For the last several NOAC’s, Ktemaque Lodge #15 issued a set of numbered NOAC flaps (1-25) as part of the fundraising for the 2018 NOAC. The sets mimic the un-numbered sets which were subsequently issued. The third and final numbered set has a Silver Mylar border and mirrors the contingent issue.

Otahnagon Lodge #172 2018 Flap S45

A bit puzzled by the flap shown below. Otahnagon Lodge #172 typically issues a flap for their Annual Winter Banquet which takes place in January. I have not seen an issue from 2018. There is no indication of NOAC although the patch does contain the year 2018.

PatchScan indicates that 275 were issued in January 2018.

Can anyone confirm the reason for this issue? Was it considered a NOAC issue from the Lodge?

the stats would be:

“Kings or parliaments could not give the rights essential to happiness… We claim them from a higher source — from the King of kings, and Lord of all the earth. They are not annexed to us by parchments and seals. They are created in us by the decrees of Providence, which establish the laws of our nature. They are born with us; exist with us; and cannot be taken from us by any human power, without taking our lives.” –John Dickinson, An Address to the Committee of Correspondence in Barbados, 1766

“There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.” –George Washington, Fifth Annual Message, 1793

2018 Order of the Arrow Handbook

I will be updating my Order of the Arrow Handbook Checklist. I recently acqured of one of my needs, the 2018 Printing which again oddly enough does not indicate a copyright date and lists Anthony Peluso as the National Chief.

After 1989, there was no indication of the month or printing size. There was usually an indication of the year it was revised or printed. One of the easiest identifiers is the name/signature of the National Chief printed in the Handbook and most recently the Printing Year has been listed on the back cover.

There is another new cover for this printing, two Scouts overlooking a lake.

and the back cover:

Looking to confirm if one more recent OA Handbook was actually issued for 2011 and 2016 and if so, I’m looking to purchase or trade for it. Also was there a different 2018 NOAC version of the OAHB?
