eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter
Sunday Morning
March 19, 2017
I'm getting this edition out super late but my excuse is a pretty good one.  I spent the weekend doing cheerful service and enjoying the fellowship of my brothers at an OA event.  Then Sunday morning we joined Sardis Presbyterian Church in Charlotte before running to my daughter's first YMCA youth soccer game of the season.  Those of you with kids understand the struggle to thread the needle with family schedules.

At the lodge event patch trading was actually on the schedule Friday and Saturday night.  In addition Tim Hellaby II ran a class Saturday on how to design patches.  It was pretty neat to see some younger buy as crazy about thread as I am.
Order of the Arrow Auctions Looking Good
I will try and post all this up on CarolinaOA.com later in the week but one really interesting item was approved by the youth.  Our council Jamboree contingent is combined with the Georgia/Carolina Council this year.  There is going to be a joint flap issued with both Santee 116 and Bob White 87.  The boys on our side approved the flap and down in Augusta, GA they were doing the same at their fellowship.

Santee Lodge is also one of those that is taking a serious look at bringing back the OBV flap system after the national ban was lifted in December.  The lodge rules and by-laws will have to be amended so this might be a drawn out process but it has momentum.

Up on eBay I've got 158 auctions running with a bunch that end tomorrow night.  Many of these are consignment pieces that are from National and World Jamborees.
The Charlotte TOR will be here in less than two weeks.  I'm going to be burning the candle late at night getting all my stuff prepped for my tables.  Monday I'm going to order yard signs that we will use and our 2"x5" vinyl banner is already on it's way to Charlotte.  With the signage taken care of we will be nailing down the small details and getting ready to welcome everyone.     

Your brother in the cloth,
