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.

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)

In addition to the Trails of TMR set, Kintecoying Lodge issued a 2-piece set celebrating the 90th Anniversary of Ten Mile River Scout Camps. The set used a technique called Dye Sublimation which allowed the use of photographic images and shows more details than a stitched patch.

Kintecoying Lodge #4 Trails of Ten Mile River 3-piece set S8 X5 X6

I had originally posted about this http://www.nyoatrader.com/blog/2017/05/18/kintecoying-lodge-4-trails-of-ten-mile-river-3-piece-set/. At the time, I was undecided about how to list the vrious pieces.

Kintecoying Lodge in conjunction with the Greater New York Council and the Ten Mile Scout Museum has issued a three piece set, CSP, Flap and Chevron which commemorates the 90th Anniversary of Ten Mile River Scout Camps, the 20th Anniversary of the TMR Museum and the hiking trails of TMR. The overall design of the three piece set depicts a topographic map of Ten Mile River Scout Camps.

My original thought was to only list the flap and chevron as a Lodge issue. The CSP does not contain any mention of the lodge so I was not prepared to list it as a lodge issue.

As I prepared to write up the stats, I realized the chevron only indicates the TMR Museum.

After thinking about if, and since the lodge sold the 3 piece sets at various lodge events, I decided to list all three pieces. As always, your mileage may vary and feel free to collect what you want.

Ten Mile River Trader

Posting has been light here of late as I have been spending some time on the sister site, the Ten Mile River Trader.

The mission statement for that site is similar to the New York OA Trader site:

The main purpose of this blog is to share information about new Ten Mile River Scout Camp issues, the discovery of previously uncatalogued issues, warnings about fakes, spoof, and reproductions and information that may be of interest to other Ten Mile River or Scout Camp Patch Collectors.

In addition, I plan to use this site to gather information about the “orphan” GNYC Camps. Those no longer in existence, but whose memory lives on in those who camped there and in the memorabilia they issued. To include Kanes Open, Henry Kaufmann Scout Camp, Sanita Hills and John Rueger Explorer Base and any other GNYC short term camp.

GNYC 2011 The Birds of Ten Mile River CSP sets

Of interest to those of you who collect CSP’s from NY councils may be two new CSP sets from Greater New York Councils and the Ten Mile river Scout Museum who have combined to issue 2 sets of 10 CSP’s which depict various birds which are found throughout Sullivan County and Ten Mile River Scout Camps.

Birds of TMR - The Great Blue Heron CSP

There are two varieties, a limited edition set (only 60 made) and a larger run set a white border. More information and a flyer to order these patches can be found on the TMR Museum website. These CSP’s are a bit over-sized at 65mm by 130mm to better show the details on the birds.
