Been a very busy week with life, work and Scouting since the Shu Shu Gah TOR last weekend, but hopefully things will calm down a bit and I can get back to more regular posting. I picked up a number of conclave items from lodges in Northeastern NY thanks to Gene Philips. Here is one, a staff neckerchief from the 1971 Area 2-D Conclave held at Camp Saratoga and hosted by Ta-Oun-Ya-Wat-Ha Lodge #268.
I was unaware of the existence of this item and I understand there may be a variety with a similar ribbon with red detailing.

- Sisilija Lodge #19
- Half Moon Lodge #28
- Wakpominee Lodge #48
- Nischa Nimat Lodge #181
- Ta-Oun-Ya-Wat-Ha Lodge #268
- Loon Lodge #364
- Thay-En-Da-Ne-Gea Lodge #418
