Northeast Region OA Realignment – Breakup GNYC?

Grand Canyon South RimA couple on months back, I posted on the 2008 Realignment of the Northeast Region of the BSA and its likely effects on the various OA Sections in New York. This was based on the original post on John Pannells site.

I have just received what is reportedly the composition of the OA Sections (from 2 different sources) which I will post on later tonight or tomorrow, once I have had a chance to absorb the information.

The first thing is that the 5 GNYC Lodges which have always been if the same section or area since Area C in the 1940’s are now being split up. The world is rent, the center cannot hold!

It was reported that NE7 would include:

  • 360 Shinnecock
  • 412 Buckskin
  • 4 Ranachqua
  • 15 Ktemaque
  • 24 Shu-Shu-Gah
  • 49 Suanhacky
  • 82 Man-A-Hattin
  • 86 Nacha Nimat
  • 112 Aquehongian
  • 28 Half Moon
  • 2 Sakuwit
  • 9 Lenapehoking
  • 43 Woapalanne
  • It seems that there will be these lodges will be split into 2 Sections NE-7A and NE-7B. Shu Shu Gah #24, Man-a-Hattin Lodge #82 and Aquehongian Lodge #112 will be in the half of the Section with the NJ Lodges. Ranachqua #4 and Suanhacky #49 will be with the upstate NY Lodges (and Long Island).

    More details to follow.
