About the Contributors
In the Summer of 2007 I expanded this blog to include contributing authors. These contributors will primarily cover chosen areas much like I cover the lodges of the Carolinas. The current contributors include the following persons.
Jeff Ansley will be covering the lodges of Oregon. He is the son of a retired Marine who has Scouting experience in 4 different locations – Irvine CA, Arcata CA, Twentynine Palms CA, and Beaverton OR. He graduated college from Oregon State University (GO Beavers – Back to Back CWS Champions). He is also a Marine and Army Reservist. He is an Eagle Scout (with silver palm) and Vigil Member of Wauna La-MonÃƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢Tay 442. In addition he is a Wood Badge Buffalo and earned the Silver Beaver.
Jeff has been a member of the following lodges: Cahuilla 127, Skyloo 442, Cole Snass Lamatai 259, Tsisqan 253, Ashie 436, Walamootkin 336 and Wauna La-MonÃƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢Tay 442. He collects any OA from the Western Region with special focus on the Pacific NW and Far East.
Robert Mathis, along with David Weda, writes the Florida CollectorsÃƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ Newsletter covering Scouting patches and collectibles (OA lodge, chapter, and section, along with council shoulder patches) in the state of Florida. They have been publishing for 15 years. Since 2006 they have also published an online edition, found at http://floridacsp.com/fcn/. He will primarily cover the lodges of eastern Florida (Seminole 85, Echockotee 200, Aal-Pa-Tah 237, Semialachee 239, O-Shot-Caw 265, Tipisa 326, Timuquan 340, and Osceola 564).
Dave Scocca has volunteered to help keep the site updated on issues from Nentico Lodge #12 in the Baltimore Area Council. He is a frequent commentor on this blog. He also maintains a website of patches from Baltimore Area Council including CSPs, activities, and camps. Dave is an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow.
