Collecting Ten Mile River Scout Camps and NYC OA Patches Webinar

Here is a link to the webinar I hosted on Collecting Ten Mile River Scout Camps and NYC OA Patches. This is a very high level overview and I try to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. The first portion of the talk is devoted to TMR, with the final portion to the NYC OA Lodges.

The topic is “Collecting Ten Mile River Scout Camps and OA patches.”

​Bill Mulrenin (aka “NY OA Trader,” https://www.nyoatrader.com), Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member will lead a discussion about collecting and trading Ten Mile River Scout Camps’ and Order of the Arrow Patches. Bill is a Trustee of the Ten Mile River Scout Camp Museum, chairman of its’ Memorabilia Committee and the New York State Editor for the Blue Book.

I’m particularly interested in any information you may have on Ranachqua Lodge event issues from the 1950’s and any Chapter issues as I do not believe they are well documented.

“It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good disposition.” —Thomas Jefferson (1785)

Scouting Hot Finds Radio Podcast #96 Creating Scouting Memorabilia Collecting Guides

Jason Spangler has created another podcast for Scouting Hotfinds Radio #96 Creating Scouting Memorabilia Collecting Guides With Wiatt Williamson.

He explains

Wiatt Williamson has cracked the code on how to write a Scouting memorabilia guide book. In his years in the hobby he has written over a dozen guides for Order of the Arrow lodges, councils and camps. In this interview he shares the blueprint and makes an offer to share his easy to use template with everyone out there. I think that his idea can be a powerful positive force for the hobby. Imagine if in your state there was a free PDF for all CSPs (David McIntyre) or for the camps that have been part of your council’s legacy through mergers. If you write it they will collect it to twist a line from a classic movie. You can email Wiatt Williamson with questions about the template.

Listen to “#96 Creating Scouting Memorabilia Collecting Guides With Wiatt Williamson” on Spreaker.

Guides don’t need to be hundreds of pages and can be very targeted for a specific audience. What guide would you create?

Download Wiatt’s free template to make collectors guides here.

Here is a link to Eagle Peak Stores Collecting Guides Wiatt mentions in the podcast.

Let Jason know if you want to see more of these.
