Kintecoying Lodge #4 in conjunction with the Ten Mile River Scout Museum has issued their first jacket patch and historic flap set commemeorating the legacy of service of the Order of the Order of the Arrow in NYC.

The Kintecoying Lodge #4 and the Ten Mile River Scout Museum commemorates A Legacy of Service by issuing this unique fully embroidered 6-patch set composed of Kintecoying’s First Jacket Patch and 5 historic flaps, one for each of the legacy lodges.

Section NE-3 1988 Conclave Pocket Patch

ConclaveHere is another image from Tom Wadnola, this one from the Section NE-3 1988 Section Conclave.

The conclave was hosted by Man-a-hattin Lodge #82 and held at Camp Keowa, Ten Mile River Scout Camps. The theme was Fan the Spark of Brotherhood.

While not part of the official program it was also the site of a fabled BBQ party which is still talked about when the selected attendees get together.

Look Back – Man-A-Hattin Lodge #82 Fake ZS3

A Look Back

Nearly six years ago I wrote about what was than a newly discovered fake from Man-A-Hattin Lodge #82.

The flap is computer designed version of the Manahattin Lodge #82 F1 or S1, and is of much better quality than the recent batch of “modern fakes” on eBay.

Both John Pannell and Bob McCanless have both weighed in on the subject of fakes from two different points of view. Although neither of them are in favor of fakes. Take the time to read them,

Man-A-Hattin Lodge #82 Fake ZS3

“Corruption, like a cancer … eats faster and faster every hour. The revenue creates pensioners, and the pensioners urge for more revenue. The people grow less steady, spirited, and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day increases the circles of their dependents and expectants, until virtue, integrity, public spirit, simplicity, and frugality become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, floppery, selfishness, meanness, and downright venality swallow up the whole of society.” – President John Adams


That Lodge Named – Kintecoying

The upcoming GNYC Lodge has confirmed it’s name and totem.

After considering the results of the online opinion poll conducted in December 2012, the members of the transition team voted to name the Greater New York Councils Order of the Arrow Lodge, Kintecoying Lodge #4 on January 6, 2013. Kintecoying is translated as “Crossroads of Nations”. What we now
call Astor Place used to be named Kintecoying or, “Crossroads of Nations,” and was a powwow point for the Lenape tribes of Manhattan. At this spot, where the branches of the trails converged, the Lenapes traded with each other, exchanged news, and held spiritual ceremonies and tribal councils to settle disputes. The Crossroads of Nations also speaks to NYC’s role as the “Capital of the World” and a “Melting Pot” of peoples from many lands around the world.

You will note that they decided to use #4 which will acknowledge the long history of the Order of the Arrow in New York City.

The Lodge Totem has been chosen as well.

The peregrine falcon has been selected as the lodge totem. A native bird to New York City, the peregrine falcon is a symbol of strength. Peregrine falcons are among the world’s most common birds of prey and live on all continents except Antarctica. They prefer wide-open spaces, and thrive near
coasts where shorebirds are common, but they can be found everywhere from tundra to deserts. Peregrines are also found living on the bridges and skyscrapers of our city. Having been put on the endangered species list in the 1970s the peregrine falcon is making a strong comeback with population numbers on the rise worldwide.

There will also be a design contest for the new Lodge Flap

All youth arrowmen are encouraged to submit a design for consideration by January 31, 2013. All submissions must follow the guidelines set forth on the contest entry form. The transition
team will narrow down the submissions to three candidates and a public opinion poll will be conducted to select a design. The design will be publicly unveiled and the designer of the winning design will be recognized at the Lodge’s “Day One” event to be held on April 13, 2013.

“Any single man must judge for himself whether circumstances warrant obedience or resistance to the commands of the civil magistrate; we are all qualified, entitled, and morally obliged to evaluate the conduct of our rulers. This political judgment, moreover, is not simply or primarily a right, but like self-preservation, a duty to God. As such it is a judgment that men cannot part with according to the God of Nature. It is the first and foremost of our inalienable rights without which we can preserve no other.” – John Locke
