An auction recently ended on eBay for an Onteroraus Lodge #402 event Neckerchief Slidewhich I beleive is the only lodge event issue from Onteroraus Lodge .

Is anyone aware of any other event issues from Onteroraus Lodge #402?

Bidding started at just $ 1.00, but 3 bidders made 10 bids before this one ended. Two of the three bidders stuck in there slugging it out until the hammer came down at $ 46.00.

State of the Hobby – ONTERORAUS Lodge #402 BROTHERHOOD NECKERCHIEF N1.5

An Onteroraus Lodge Neckerchief auction recently ended on eBay for an early 402 neckerchief and related Neal slide.


clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

Not sure what drove the bidding here, the neckerchief or the Neal slide. Bidding started at just $ 8.00, but 4 bidders made 17 bids before this one ended at just over $ 128.00. Three of the bidders stuck in there at over $ 120.00.

The Neal slide looks like it was altered to include the Brotherhood slide. Not sure if any of the bidding interest was for the slide rather than the neckerchief.

It’s On Again – 2 Boy Scout councils vote to merge

I had previously written about the Revolutionary Trails Council (RTC) and the Otschodela Council (OC) proposed merger of the two Councils in my post Off Again On Again.

While the merger was overwhelmingly approved by the RTC, it only had a small majority in the OC vote. Apparently NY Law requires a 2/3 majority for this type of consolidation.

A new vote is scheduled for November 16, 2015.

Well the votes are in.

Two local Boy Scout councils have just voted on the plan to become one. The Otschodela Trails Council – based in Oneonta – and the Revolutionary Trails Council – based in Utica – have started the merger process.

The new larger council will serve 3400 scouts across six counties. The merger must be finalized by New York State and the National Office of the Boy Scouts of America.

It’s anticipated that the process will be completed in several months and that includes forming a new executive board. The corporate office and executive director’s office will be in Utica, but the Oneonta office will remain open.

Leaders say that the two councils can do more together than separately.

From the Revolutionary Trails Scout Exec.

The Otschodela and Revolutionary Trails Councils of the Boy Scouts of America are pleased to announce that we have voted to merge our Councils. As a result, a new and larger Council will be created to serve over 3,400 youth across six counties in central New York. An Executive Board comprised equally of members from the two former councils will govern the new Council. As an exciting bonus for our youth, we will be reaching out to them for their input on the name of our great new Council.

Merger discussions began eight months ago around a shared goal of attracting more youth to Scouting and creating a better Scouting experience for all. As neighboring Councils, it was a logical step to reach out and work together.
