Following is a listing of the Order of the Arrow Section Conclave patches for Kansas and Western Missouri, all of which included my Lodge 147 Tamegonit. At various times this area has been known as Area 8-D (1956-72); Section NC-3C (1973-1979); Section NC-3A (1980-82); Section NC-3 (1983-1992); Section C-6 (1993-1999); Section C-6A 2000 to 2004; and Section C-5B 2005-Present. The change to C-6 added the Lodges of Central and Eastern Missouri, along with several Illinois Lodges in the St. Louis vicinity. I need new issues as they appear. I have marked the patches I have with an "X" inside the bracket preceding each patch description.
If you have wondered why Section Conclave patches from this Area are difficult to find it is because it has been the custom in this Area to only order enough patches to equal the number of participants. Consequently, most patches were ordered as one or two loom runs (approximately 220-440 patches depending upon the shape and size). There were many conclaves where there were not enough patches to go around, and some participants didn't get a patch. Often, there were special borders issued for staff and Key-3 Members.
Feel free to copy the list to your clipboard, and past it into your word processor if you want your own checklist.
A link is provided to a list of those duplicate Area and Section patches which I have for sale or trade.

No discussion of Area 8-D and Section NC-3 would be complete without mentioning the late Ed Reeves of Wichita, KS, who served many years as Area and Section adviser. Ed always had something good to say about everyone, and lived his life as an inspiration to young men. He always had time for the youngest Scout. You never walked away from a conversation with Ed without being enthused, whatever the project might be. I'm sure Heaven is a happier place because of Ed.
