    Nice design. I’ve always been impressed with Buckskin Lodge Flaps.

    Any chance you know why they have incorporated the additional W’s in the design?

    Dan,I seem to remember that Buckskins regular issue flaps traditionally had 24 W’s in them. I believe it was because there were 24 founding members. Can’t find the specific reference though.http://www.billcotter.com/onteora/buckskin412.htm“Preserving our most cherished traditions and yet binding us into a national brotherhood of honor campers, Buckskin Lodge #412, Order of the Arrow, became a reality on September 3, 1949. Twenty-four Sons were inducted in ceremonies at the Area 2-A Conclave held at Camp Manhattan, Ten Mile River Scout Camps. The Tap-Out was presented by the Ranachqua Lodge of the Bronx and Shu-Shu-Gah Lodge of Brooklyn presented the pre-Ordeal. Man-A-Hattan Lodge of Manhattan conducted the Ordeal ceremony. Bob Hayes was our first Lodge Chief from September 1949 to September 1950.”

    Thanks. This is the kind of notes I wish they would include in patch reference guides. Good stuff. I like to know the symbolism of designs.
