Interesting use for neckerchiefs

Posted on February 15th, 2010 in Hobby Trends,OA,Section Conclaves by ramore

One of the fun things about this hobby is that there are surprises even after four decades of collecting. A new one on me was a recent eBay offering. Someone had taken some lodge and conclave neckerchiefs and made them into a blanket. I’ve seen this done before many times. But… someone cut up the blanket and made the pieces into hot pads! Now that’s different.

So, when you think you’ve seen it all, you probably haven’t. Any out there want a bunch of Scout neckerchiefs to start the newest collecting craze – Boy Scout oven pads? Its going to be hot! (Ouch.)

New Western Region OA Section Alignments Issued

Posted on August 15th, 2008 in BSA Info,Hobby News,OA,Section Conclaves by ramore

Out today is the new re-alignment of OA sections for the Western Region.

See the following PDF:


There will be six (6) areas with a total of fourteen (14) sections. I’m not sure how many there are currently. This covers 23,748 OA members.

I know Central region has reconfigured its Areas and my guess is the other regions as well. This is probably in response to a re-org in Western Region. I’m sure there is some bouncing around for some lodges. Locally here, Toledo, Ohio (Erie Shores Council, Tindeuchen Lodge) was in our Area and Section, then out of our Area and Section and are now back in our Area but I don’t yet know about section. Always confusing. Hopefully it helps. I’m sure the OA will adapt.
