2021 Order of the Arrow Handbook

I will be updating my Order of the Arrow Handbook Checklist. I recently acquired of one of my needs, the 2021 Printing which again does not indicate a copyright date and lists Derek Porter as the National Chief.

After 1989, there was no indication of the month or printing size. There was usually an indication of the year it was revised or printed. One of the easiest identifiers is the name/signature of the National Chief printed in the Handbook and most recently the Printing Year which is listed on the back cover.

The cover for this printing is the same as 2019, an old time statue of a Scout with arms folded.

Looking to confirm if one more recent OA Handbook was actually issued for 2011 and 2016 and if so, I’m looking to purchase or trade for it.

They have now issued 2 flaps.

Section NE-3A 2010 Conclave SMY Pocket Patch

At the Allegheny Highlands Council TOR last weekend, I came across a new variant of the pocket patch issued for the Section NE-3A 2010 Conclave. The 2010 Section NE-3A Conclave was held at Camp Russell and hosted by Ga Hon Ga Lodge #34. The theme was Arrow Wars 2010.

This patch has a SMY border. While the scanner washes it out a bit it is definitely SMY and not the previously known white border.

Can anyone confirm the use of the different border colors?

I’ll update the original post for the Section NE-3A 2010 Conclave with the information.
