NER OA – 1987 Northeast Region OA Seminar

One of the first patches issued for the Northeast Region for an OA event was the 1987 OA Seminar. The standard version of the patch is shown below with the White 1987 in the design.

Over the years, I have seen a handful of images of an undated patch of the same design. I was recently able to acquire one. It does not appear to be a thread or needle break, there is no indication the date is missing.

Can anyone explain the reason for the difference in the images? Reorder? Different event?

My current NER OA needs include:
Northeast Region (NER) Quality Section 2004 Blue
NER 2001 Jambo GMY border Dome,
NER 2002 NOAC GMY triangle,
NER 2004 NOAC SMY border Rectangle,
NER 2006 NOAC GMY Dome,

For those who collect Northeast Region Order of the Arrow Patches Dave Scocca’s website is invaluable.

Section NE-3 1987 Section Conclave Pin

Nine years ago I was posting about the Section NE-3 1987 Section Conclave. In addition to the pocket patch I posted then, Mia Hubbert sent an image of the hat pin made for the event.

The Pin is approximately 1 inch tall.

Ill add the image to the original post as well.

Gone Fishing – Section NE-2C 1987 Conclave Staff Neckerchief

Back in September 2008 I wrote about tne 1987 NE-2C Conclave and just last October I added an image of the staff neckerchief.

Another fishing expedition to see if I can fill in another need.

Section NE-2C 1987 Conclave – Staff Neckerchief

Back in September 2008, I wrote about the 1987 NE-2C Section Conclave held at Camp Sam Wood and hosted by Amo’chk Lodge #339. At the time, I was only aware of a pocket patch and silk-screened neckerchief.

Mike Hulsizer’s WNY Order of the Arrow Area/Section Conclave History and Memorabilia site indicates that there is also a Staff neckerchief.

This is a need of mine if anyone has one for trade or sale.

I’ve updated the original post with the information as well.

1987 Section NE-2D Conclave

The 1987 Section NE-2D Conclave memorabilia does not indicate who was the host lodge, nor the location where it was held.  Following the pattern from previous years, there were at least two items issued, a pocket patch and a Two neckerchiefs.

A Pocket Patch:

And the neckerchief:

Were there any other issues for this event?  Thanks to Tom Wadnola for the images.

Update: October 23

While cataloging my conclave issues, I came across the neckerchief below with White Piping.  Does anyone know the reason for the two different colors?

Section NE-2D 1987 Neckerchief - White Piping

Section NE-2D 1987 Neckerchief - White Piping

I still need the Red Piped version if anyone has one available.
I’ve been told that the neckerchief with Red Piping is the staff Version and the white Piping is the Participant version. Can anyone confirm this information?
