Ranachqua Lodge #4 90th Annivesary A5

Here is another issue from Ranachqua Lodge #4 issued at their Winter Banquet to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Lodge in 2010. While it was issued for the banquet, Blue Book policy would call it the A5, since there is no indication of an event on the patch.

“If you are a warrior who is legally authorized to carry a weapon and you step outside without that weapon, then you become a sheep, pretending that the bad man will not come today. No one can be “on” 24/7 for a lifetime. Everyone needs down time. But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself… ‘Baa.’ “- LTC David A. Grossman,

Ranachqua Lodge #4 100 Years of Scouting S36

I had previously written about a yellow-bordered issue from Ranachqua Lodge #4 for the 100th Anniversary of the BSA. There is also a red bordered version of the patch.  The yellow was issued first.

The Blue Book style stats for this one should be:
S36 – RED R M/C BLK YEL FDL; BLK 100 Years of Scouting 90 Years of Service RED WWW

I’m not sure what the reason is for the different border colors, does anyone know?
There were two different runs for the flap. Each was limited to 100 pieces. There was no other other reason for the border change.

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 2010 Indian Seminar Jacket Patch eJ2010-4

The weekend of November 19, 2010 was the 10th Annual Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Indian Seminar. As usual there were several patches issued for the event. This is the third and final patch issued for the event. Over 200 people participated and there were 100+ dancers on the floor Saturday evening Pow-Wow.

For the first time, a jacket patch was issued for the event. The design featured 7 different dance styles all of which had been used on previous pocket patches. What many may not realize is the outfits depicted have been those worn by actual dancers over the years the event has been held.

The patch is a large one, almost 11.5 inches from arrow tip to the end. It was issued specially for the 10th Indian Seminar and is not expected to be repeated.
