NOAC Patch Design Winner Announced

I had previously written about the Patch design contest for the 2009 NOAC.


The winners have now been announced:

The section chiefs at the National Planning Meeting picked the winner of the NOAC Patch Design Contest. From the numerous submissions received, they decided that there was a three-way tie! The winning designers were: Matthew S. of Octoraro Lodge, West Chester, PA; Michael D. of Chippewa Lodge, Waterford, MI; and Steven V. of Aal-Pa-Tah Lodge, West Palm Beach, FL.

Elements of two of the designs were combined to create the NOAC patch, which will be unveiled at the conference. The third design will be featured on the NOAC merchandise at the NOAC Trading Post. Because there were three winners, each designer will receive a $100 credit at the NOAC Trading Post and a skybox seat at a NOAC show. Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to all who competed!


Fear is the foundation of most governments; but it is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men in whose breasts it predominates so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it.” –John Adams
