Have you been wondering what's up with the Pocumtuc lodge flaps?
The new Pocumtuc Lodge flap design was voted on and approved by the lodge leadership at the December Lodge Executive Committee (LEC) meeting. They had a number of great designs to choose from and chose the design pictured above in the Ordeal/Brotherhood/Vigil set. The lodge flap features our wolf totem baying in front of a glowing moon with a different border color and appropriate arrow for Ordeal, Brotherhood and Vigil. The flaps are in process with a patch company and the design has been refined a couple of times as we work to perfect Pocumtuc's first lodge flap. Last Sunday at the February LEC, the lodge leadership was able to review the first set of samples and give some feedback. We had a number of great suggestions and have incorporated those into one more round of refinements before the final version of the flaps are manufactured. Thanks to everyone who gave creative feedback, your ideas will make our first standard lodge flap set the best they can be. Getting the flaps designed, refined, samples and manufacturing does take time but we anticipate that the flaps will be available for purchase by our Lodge Banquet on April 5th. However, before the standard flaps are available a special commemorative lodge flap will be sent to lodge members who paid their '09 dues before the 2008 deadline. These members are considered 'Charter Memebers' of Pocumtuc Lodge and will receive two commemorative charter member flaps that have a gold mylar border. The commemorative charter member flaps will not be available for sale by the lodge, making them a valuable part of any complete collection of Pocumtuc Lodge flaps.
