Another acquisition from the CNY TOR last month was a chapter issue from Kittan Lodge’s Ta-Oun-Ya-Wat-Ha Chapter what will be their X1.

The chapter is carrying on a tradition from the predecessor council (Saratoga County) and has issued a “Year Round Camper” Patch.

1971 Area 2-D Conclave Staff Neckerchief

Been a very busy week with life, work and Scouting since the Shu Shu Gah TOR last weekend, but hopefully things will calm down a bit and I can get back to more regular posting. I picked up a number of conclave items from lodges in Northeastern NY thanks to Gene Philips. Here is one, a staff neckerchief from the 1971 Area 2-D Conclave held at Camp Saratoga and hosted by Ta-Oun-Ya-Wat-Ha Lodge #268.

I was unaware of the existence of this item and I understand there may be a variety with a similar ribbon with red detailing.

I’ll add this to the original 1971 2-D conclave listing.

According to Rob Higgens’ OA Section List web site, the following lodges were in Area 2-D at that time:

  • Sisilija Lodge #19
  • Half Moon Lodge #28
  • Wakpominee Lodge #48
  • Nischa Nimat Lodge #181
  • Ta-Oun-Ya-Wat-Ha Lodge #268
  • Loon Lodge #364
  • Thay-En-Da-Ne-Gea Lodge #418

“The strongest argument for free enterprise is that it prevents anybody from having too much power. Whether that person is a government official, a trade union official, or a business executive. If forces them to put up or shut up. They either have to deliver the goods, produce something that people are willing to pay for, are willing to buy, or else they have to go into a different business.” –economist Milton Friedman (1912-2006)

NE-2A 1989 Section Conclave

The 1989 Section NE-2A Conclave was the first conclave following the 1988 Section Realignments, this brought 2 New England Lodges into what had been a strictly NYS Section since the realignment from Area to Sections back in 1972.

The event was hosted by Ta-Oun-Ya-Wat-Ha Lodge #268 and was held at Camp Saratoga.  The theme for the weekend was “We With Hearts and Wills United.”

In addition to the typical Pocket patch and neckerchief, there was also a particpation pin.
