Southern Georgia OA Merger

Posted in Scouting News by John E. Pannell on March 10th, 2013 at 7:53 pm

There have been several mergers in the past few years.   As is the standard practice, the BSA councils first merge with the OA lodges merging after the council has been consolidated.    I can now report on a new lodge formed in Southern Georgia.

Alapaha lodge (formerly chartered to Alapaha Area Council in Valdosta, GA) and Immokalee lodge (from the former Chehaw Council in Albany, GA) have merged to form Withlacoochee lodge.   They will use the number 98 and their totem will be the Gopher Tortoise.   The two councils merged last year, forming the South Georgia Council.

There are no patches yet from the new lodge.    Thanks to Michael Baity for news of this newly formed lodge.

"The first nonabsolute number is the number of people for whom the table is reserved. This will vary during the course of the first three telephone calls to the restaurant, and then bear no apparent relation to the number of people who actually turn up, or to the number of people who subsequently join them after the show/match/party/gig, or to the number of people who leave when they see who else has turned up.
The second nonabsolute number is the given time of arrival, which is now known to be one of the most bizarre of mathematical concepts, a recipriversexcluson, a number whose existence can only be defined as being anything other than itself. In other words, the given time of arrival is the one moment of time at which it is impossible that any member of the party will arrive. Recipriversexclusons now play a vital part in many branches of math, including statistics and accountancy and also form the basic equations used to engineer the Somebody Else's Problem field.
The third and most mysterious piece of nonabsoluteness of all lies in the relationship between the number of items on the bill, the cost of each item, the number of people at the table and what they are each prepared to pay for. (The number of people who have actually brought any money is only a subphenomenon of this field.)"

    I have contacted two member’s of the Lodge and they inform me that their FF has an orange border with brown FDL. They tell me it is either the non Charter Member version or opposite. Most importantly is the fact that they both inform me that their 2013 NJ issue is not their FF. I wanted to post this as most folks are going by what the NY OA Trader posted: http://www.nyoatrader.com/blog/2013/07/11/withlacoochee-lodge-98-first-flap-s1/ which does not appear to be the case. Sellers on eBay are going by this NY OA Trader post which again, does not appear to be valid.
