Suanhacky Lodge #49 Golden Stag Bolo

Another update from Eddy Petersen. He wrote

I spoke with former lodge advisor to gain some insight as to the bolo’s provenance. The bolos were given out beginning in 2003 to one (a) per lodge and (b) per chapter as recognition of their service. The bolos were hand crafted by Tony Pinnavaia.

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.

Look Back – Suanhacky Lodge Rockaway Chapter X2

A Look Back

I posted this back in September 2014.

During the 1960’s Rockaway Chapter used these generic Seahorse felts as Chapter issues. There are two versions, the X1 (6 inches tall) and the X2 pictured below was four inches tall.

The Blue Book describes it as:

Anyone have the 6 inch version available for trade or sale? I have one of the X2’s available for trade for my Suanhacky Needs.

“If it be asked what is to restrain the House of Representatives from making legal discriminations in favor of themselves and a particular class of the society? I answer, the genius of the whole system, the nature of just and constitutional laws, and above all the vigilant and manly spirit which actuates the people of America, a spirit which nourishes freedom, and in return is nourished by it.” —James Madison (1788)

Suanhacky Lodge #49 Rockaway Chapter Neckerchief Slide

Tom Carola sends along some pictures of Suanhacky Lodge #49 Rockaway Chapter swag. I had previously posted about a Rockaway Chapter Neckerchief here or the felt seahorse X2 issue here.

This one has the look of Roland Floras work from the Slide Farm. Can any Suanhacky Brothers confirm if this is his work or when it may have been commissioned?

Suanhacky Lodge #49 Tatanka Chapter 1991 Wint-O-Ree Patch eR1991

One of the things I have always enjoyed about collecting was discovering unknown or at least unlisted issues. While I was actively collecting Sunahacky Lodge #49 in 1991 as well as attending the annual TOR they were holding in those days, I never saw this one nor was it ever listed in the Blue Book.
