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.

2020 was a year like no other with al of the changes related to COVID19. While NOAC was cancelled, Kintecoying Lodge had several sets in the works for the event, which were too far along in the process to be cancelled.

Here is the Fundraiser set utilizing the look of Arizona Ice Tea, which oddly enough is from Brooklyn.

Kintecoying Lodge #4 2019 World Jamboree Set S14/X14

While it does not mention the 2019 World Jamboree held at the Summit, Kintecoying Lodge # had 3 members in the U.S. contingent and created this set for the event.

The issue has photochromatic thread.

The stats for this set are:

X14 BLK R M/C – BLK FDL; WHT WWW Greater New York Councils 2019 WJ Set w/S14 Photochrome

Because of the photchromatic thread, if you try to scan the patch, it activates the thread and you see this.

Only the one version was produced. so if you see the scanned version it is the same as the full color set.

Kintecoying Lodge #4 TMR Power On Flap


——————–
“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)

“There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.” –George Washington, Fifth Annual Message, 1793
