Thanks to Jimmy Arthurs for sending the images of the remaining 2012 lodge events patches for Eswau Huppeday.

All three patches continue with the Big Foot theme the lodge has chosen to use this year.  The Spring Fellowship patch was issued this past weekend.    The other two items are yet to be issued.

Two new issues have recently come from Eswau Huppeday Lodge.  They are their 2012 Elangomat patch and their most recent Beaver Day patch.   The Elangomat patch features Big Foot.  On the Beaver Day patch we can see the poor beaver could not avoid being caught under the foot of the roving Big Foot.   Thanks to Jimmy Arthurs for these images.

I am told each brother can earn one of each of these patches.   Extras are not sold.

The listing data for these items are after the jump:

Eswau Huppeday S54?

This won’t be news for those who were at the Dixie Fellowship (SR-5 Conclave) last weekend.   Eswau Huppeday has recently issued two more flaps.     One is a new standard issue.   The other is the lodge’s Dixie delegate flap.     Thanks again to Jimmy Arthurs for these.

The Dixie “Delewet” flap follows upon the watery theme the lodge is using this year and already depicted on this year’s activity patches.     Observant readers familiar with this lodge’s issues will notice several allusions to design elements found on this lodge’s earliest flaps.

Lodge 560: Cooking Up More…

Eswau Huppeday 560 J15?

Eswau Huppeday 560 J15?

This is another new issue from the treasure trove of images sent me by Jimmy Arthurs.   Eswau Huppeday recently issued their   newest cook team patch.       Except several significant color changes, this patch is identical in design to the previous Cook Team patch, listed on this site as “J14?”.

I’m waffling on how to label the border color for this patch.   In my opinion it should be a goal of any descriptive system to describe items so that they can be readily identified.   (Don’t wind me up here… please)     A principle of parsimony should apply.   This could mean that the labels, such as of colors, may not be the most technically accurate if such accuracy only complicates identification of patches.     My eyes see something like “copper” as an accurate, but confusing description, possibly more reflective of how I see things than actual color. Keeping that in mind, the easy answer for the border color on this issue is “red brown”, RBR.

Jimmy Arthurs also recently sent word of two patches from Eswau Huppeday’s Allowelendam chapter that were not yet on this site.   Once again, thanks to him for his help.

The first of these, issued in 2008,   is similar in design to the patch previously listed as “R1?” except for some changes in color.     The most easily described change is the change in border color from brown to turquoise.     The second patch was issued for the chapter’s 2009 Allowelendam Corp (sic).

The listing data for these issues are as follows:

Eswau Huppeday lodge recently issued their 2010 Spring Fellowship and Elangomat patches.   They continue their custom of yearly themes for their events and special issue pieces with a rather “wet” theme this year.   Thanks to Jimmy Arthurs for these images.

Since it is neither tied to nor names a particular event the Elangomat patch is listed within the body of lodge issues.     The Spring Fellowship patch takes its place within the lodge events issues.     Listing data for these are as follows:

Eswau Huppeday lodge has been issuing a CSP for the last several years for Camp Bud Schiele.     In 2009 the lodge followed 2008′s precedent and issued a second CSP for camp staff.     Thanks again to Jimmy Arthurs for word and images of these issues.

The Anniversary of Our Order

11113282_10101567248822837_2489921023351698603_nOver the last few years a group of dedicated Arrowmen, both youth and adults, have put in countless hours researching and documenting the history of the Order of the Arrow. It has been a challenge: both an irksome task (at times, I am sure) and a weighty responsibility. The early years of the Order have never really been well documented and much has since been lost as the brothers from those earliest years have since gone on to their Great Reward. Given the great challenges they face, this group has done great work.

In the course of this work several historical facts about the history of Scouting and the Order of the Arrow have been uncovered and documented that delve into cultural areas that are difficult to discuss in today's society and would shock some. Others, which not shocking do rattle our notions of what we think we knew. One such area of research, that has been quietly pushed aside, deals with when the Order was found and by whom. The Order of the Arrow as we know it, was actually founded by Carroll A. Edson in the summer of 1914! This year we should be celebrating the 101st anniversary of the Order, not its centennial.

The Fourth Degree

In preparation for this summer's celebration of the Centennial of the Order of the Arrow, the National Committee recently made three significant announcements via webcast on Facebook.

First, due to the recent labor actions in West Coast US ports, the BSA's overseas supplier will only be able to deliver approximately 45% of the red "Centennial sashes" that the OA was having produced for distribution at NOAC. Due to this shortage, an alternative distribution plan had to be devised for the reduced quantity of sashes.

Second, the Order of the Arrow is proud to announce the creation of the Advanced Vigil degree, also to be called the Fourth Degree. This degree will only be conferred at NOAC upon brothers of the Vigil Honor who complete the requirements that will be announced at a later date. There will be separate requirements for youth and adult members. In addition, the youngest member of each lodge's delegation will have the opportunity to complete the Fourth Degree at NOAC. The exact time and location of the Fourth Degree ceremony will be announced at NOAC.

2.5 Weeks and Counting

UPDATE: Home internet service was finally restored on 25 February. Some mail may have been lost, but all is well going forward, at least for now.

Still no home internet service.

Today was the day that Time Warner was supposed to restore my internet. The appointment was made over a week ago. They knew my line was on the ground. They were supposed to call before coming. They never called.

Turns out they did come to the service call. Without ever coming to my house all the technician did is verify that my line is on the ground. After calling customer no service they verified that is all the tech was ever going to do. When will Internet be restored? Customer no service has no idea but tried to assure me they are working hard on it. I was given the standard story about working hard in my neighborhood and big equipment being needed... yadda, yadda, yadda.

Internet Outage Continues

The "Great Time Warner Internet Outage of 2014" continues for me at home, as my cable line is still on the ground in my backyard. Time Warner will not be able to have someone out to my place to restring it until March 22nd.

I'll note the electric company was able to restore access in our part of NC, including the restringing of lines, in a fraction of that time. I look forward to the day when I can "fire" the cable company monopoly!

In the mean time, I am unable to much of any work with this site and can only sporadicallycheck OAImages mail, when I'm able to use someone else's internet connection.

I hope this doesn't impact my ability to continue an annual tradition on this site which is rapidly approaching! Read the Full Post
