As part of the ongoing mergers in Michigan, Agaming Maangowagan lodge was recently formed to serve the Water and Woods Field Service Council, part of the Michigan Crossroads Council. This lodge was formed from the merger of Mischigonong 89, Chickagami 180, Cuwe 218, and Gabe-Shi-Win-Gi-Ji-Kens 374 lodges. Thanks to both Randy Holden and Dick Sofian for sending me images of the first flap for this new lodge.
The lodge’s name is interpreted as “Loon Feather on the Shore”. The lodge totem is the loon. The lodge has chosen to use number 804, based upon what they view to be the effective date of this lodge, August 4th, also the first day after this year’s NOAC.
The lodge flaps were readily available for trade at this year’s NOAC, unlike the recent Puvunga lodge flaps. I have heard unconfirmed reports that at least 1500 of these flaps were produced.

When the proofs, the figure, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.
