    *Cayucos 304 was listed being in attendance, even though was not chartered until Jun. 12th.
    Reference: Tracy Schultze Area Conference History for Area U and Area U, Section A and Tom Tabb in his book Order of the Arrow History For Area U Section A / Areas XIIA, XIIE, & XIIF / Sections W4A, W4B, W4C, & W5A

    **According to James Arriola, Sinawava was also listed in attendance in the program booklet-- even though Sinawava 312, unlike Cayucos 304, wasn't supposed to have been chartered until after the event.
    However, both Tracy Schultze, and Tom Tabb state that 312 was not represented. There must have been some confusion as to the attendees list for them to have specified four lodges-- that we're even supposed to have been chartered-- did not attend.
    They also point out that "the July 1945 National Bulletin doesn’t list lodge 312 in AREA U." As both of these sources seem to largely quote each other, I am not sure who is quoting whom.




  • The July 1945 Bulletin of the Order of the Arrow included the new Area Lodges and Area Leaders. It included changes where the lodges of Oregon (Tsisqan 253 and Cole Snass Lamatai 259) and Idaho (Thunder City 266) were used to create the new Area Y.
