Section NE-5 1989 Conclave

In 1989 the newly formed Section NE-5’s Conclave was hosted by Gyantwachia Lodge #255 and the event was held at their (see comment from Rob Higgens) Camp Custaloga Town.  the theme for the weekend was “Seek To Serve”

There was only a single New York Lodge, Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont #165 in Section NE-5. While it is basically a PA Section, its patches are still sought by NY Section Conclave collectors.

Were any other items issued for this event?

Update February 2018
Todd Rogers advised

I was going through my collection and realized there are two different varieties for the 1989 NE-5 patch that you mention:

In addition to the no loop version, there was a version with a loop.

My guess would be trading post version and a participant version. Can anyone confirm?
