Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Issues.

The 2017 Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave was hosted by Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont #165 and held at their Elk Lick Scout Reservation. The theme was “The Order of the Arrow’s Got Talent”.

Chris Carlson advised:

7 patch set, only patches made for the event. Each lodge was represented by its color listed in the stars on the patch. Only sold 15 complete sets. Will not be easy to put set together. Host lodge was yellow being Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont #165 hosted at Elk Lick Scout Reserve which might be hardest one to come by as there were more host lodge people than any other lodge, and we were limited to 1. Silver boarder was a “section delegate” patch.

Todd Rogers advised:

The 2017 NE-4A Conclave had seven different patches. One border color for each of the lodges in the section and one for section officers. Due to an ordering issue they only ordered 70 per color and didn’t order them in quantities sufficient to enable the sale of full sets with most attendees only receiving their lodge’s border color patch.

Here is the version for the Host Lodge:

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Yellow Border Pocket Patch

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Yellow Border Pocket Patch

and here is the full set, the border color matches the background of the lodge star.

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Pocket Patch Set

I currently need all but the Red Border if anyone has any available for trade or sale.

Section NE-4A contains the following Lodges:

  • Wyona Lodge #18
  • Langundowi Lodge #46
  • Ah’Tic Lodge #139
  • Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont Lodge #165
  • Gyantwachia Lodge #255
  • Woapeu Sisilija Lodge #343

“The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” —Justice Joseph Story (1833)

Fifth Annual Allegheny Highlands Rendezvous TOR Report

Tod Rogers sends along a report on the Fifth Annual Allegheny Highlands Rendezvous TOR. Take it away Tood.

This is the fifth year for the Allegheny Highlands Rendezvous TOR and it keeps getting better each year. The TOR committee actively began looking for other spaces after the 2015 TOR and explored options to make it a multi-day show. They succeeded in finding a great location while extending the duration of the event.

165TOR1

The show moved from Limestone NY, to Salamanca NY. Salamanca has several great hotel options and the Seneca Alleghany Casino is right up the road and was a great destination for post-TOR meal and entertainment options. The TOR itself moved to the community center. All 30+ tables were sold out again this year with many of the vendors arriving early on Friday. I got there around 4PM and 1/2 the room was already set up.

165TOR3

There are so many great things about this show. Despite being one of the smaller shows in terms of table size, they have a large walk in crowd, enthusiastic volunteers and a large number of scouts and scouters in uniform. Their patch auction is also conducted by a real auctioneer which adds to the experience.

They issued five unique CSPs for the event. There’s one CSP open to anyone who attended. One border color for vendors who were there on Friday. Another for anyone renting a table. They had a CSP for anyone making auction donations in excess of $25. Not available but issued was a CSP for members of the TOR committee that make it happen. They also held several raffles with the prizes being TOR committee CSPs from 2015 and 2016. The lodge service team also issues a Service Round for those who volunteer and assist the council and/or help in the kitchen.

165TOR4

I had a blast this year and Robert Morris and his team do a wonderful job. The buffet with all you can eat Prime Rib at the casino was a great way to close out Friday night. Looking forward to see what they do in 2017!

Thanks for the report Todd, hopefully one year work will cooperate and I’ll be able to get there.

“SOME writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher.”… Thomas Paine
