Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Achewen Schingue Chapter JLTC eN1962

Ian Pinnavaia has been on a mission recently. He has come across what he believes is a previously unlisted Achewen Schingue Chapter issue from a JLTC in 1962.

I picked up a N/C on eBay a while back which at the time was a total gamble on whether or not it could have been an issue of Achewen Schingue chapter or not. Before I bid I asked my Dad who had a vague recollection of it, and thought he had one in our collection already but surely we didn’t. I asked around to others like Bim Bxxxxxx, Hal (working for Uncle Sam at the time) and one or two more from the chapter who had a similar reaction to hosting a JLTC for the district, vague but nothing definitive.

Since working with Colin and others to pull the lodge history book together last year I’ve been on a mission to fill gaps in Shu Shu Gah’s lodge officer history, vigil list and a few other areas where we may be lacking key pieces of information. Other Lodge’s may follow as time allows. While reading old Blue Heron newsletters I came across an A.S. chapter report in a 1963 edition of the Blue Heron which cites the successfulness of running a JLTC for the past two years for the district. See the link below. The Indian directly resembles the A.S. indian from the patches. A neat discovery just from thumbing through a few pages of the old Blue Heron’s for a completely unrelated reason.

Here is a snip from that page:

Anyone have one for trade or sale?

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Oseetah Chapter Neckerchief

Identification Aide
Ian Pinnavaia has been trying to get a complete set of images for all Shu Shu Gah Lodge issues and has been working with Gene Berman to track down images of certain chapter issues.

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Oseetah Chapter Neckerchief

Gene opines:

…the Other is one of the Oseetah (neckerchief)’s requested. I do not believe there really is a gray version. The scans on this and the following do not really show it but one is definitely tan and the other is more like an off white which might just be either a
bleaching when being washed or sunlight exposure or a slight different color of cloth but there are not in my opinion two distinctly different Oseetah anniversary neckerchiefs.

The Blue Book Listings are:
N2 LGY RED SSC; 25th “Silver” ANN 1927-1952
N3 WHT RED SSC; 25th “Silver” ANN 1927-1952

Anyone have a either the white or light gray cloth version for trade or sale?

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Sakanenk Chapter eL1960

Identification Aide
Ian Pinnavaia has been trying to get a complete set of images for all Shu Shu Gah Lodge issues and has been working with Gene Berman to track down images of certain chapter issues.

This is a need of mine. Anyone have one for trade or sale?

You requested the 1960 leather. Note the space in the middle. I do not know why that was done. They were all like that. I have had three through the years (not any more) and have seen others and they are all like that. Perhaps you can find someone who attended that would know why that was done?

State of the Hobby – Shu-Shu-Gah Lodge 24 s21 numbered VIGIL flap

Back to Back issues from Shu shu Gah Lodge #24 in my State of the Hobby posts from eBay. This one is for the only Vigil Flap ever issued by Shu Shu Gah Lodge.

There were 200 numbered flaps issued, when the were issued, any dues paid Vigil member could buy two. They were given to new Vigil members for a number of years until they ran out. Since most Vigil members only got 1 or 2, you don’t see these available very often.

There was a single bidder on this one who took it for them minimum bid of $ 29.95.

State of the Hobby – Lodge 24 Shu-Shu-Gah S-20 OA flap 1992 NOAC

One of the toughest issues from Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 is the 1992 NOAC Delegate Flap, the Black Arrow version.

24S20 92 NOAC
Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

This was the second time Shu Shu Gah Lodge issued a delegate flap and we had a somewhat larger contingent than normal for us but only 75 flaps were made. Instead of getting 3 of the delegate (as had become or normal practice) each person on staff or with the contingent only received 2 flaps. Further the lodge advisors car was broken into and all of his luggage stolen which included 6-8 of the black arrow flaps which were to be given to several staff members from the lodge. This further reduced the number of available flaps.

Four unique bidders chased this flap, three of them hanging in past $ 50.00. When the hammer came down at the end of the auction, the winning bid was $ 67.00

State of the Hobby – Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Neckerchief N9

An item recently ended on eBay, the Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Neckerchief the N9. Unlike many of the Shu Shu Gah Lodge neckerchiefs which typically sell in the $20-25 range, this is one of the more seldom seen issues. This is one of several which fall into that category.

24N9

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

While there was only a couple of bids, the two bidder knew the value of this item, and the winner paid nearly $ 190.00 minimum bid amount.

My neckerchief needs from Shu-Shu-Gah include the N1b, N2, N3, N4a, N4b, & N7. Anyone have them for trade or sale?
