Dixie Fellowship Delegation Issues

October 24, 2009


Beginning in 2002 Santee has issued some form of delegation memorabilia for the Dixie Fellowship.  The first year the item was an armband designed by Jason Spangler and Julian Fowler.  Each of the armbands were hand numbered and about 116 of them were produced.  The extras were sold off in a lottery format at the event.  Beginning in 2003 the memorabilia became a patch and tied together the lodge’s spirit theme.  Kyle Hughes designed a round basketball patch for our host year with the theme “Home Court Advantage”. In 2004 Kyle followed up with a Santee sleigh to go with the lodge spirit theme of “Christmas in Dixie”.  For the 2005 Dixie he dressed up a disco ball patch as the lodge went with a theme of “Disco Dixie”.  For the 2006 Dixie the ECM picked a color scheme similar to themes from the old days in the lodge.  “Back in the Limelight” was the theme that went down to Georgia and won the Spirit Award for the lodge.  The ECM decided to just take the regular Ordeal flap and have a lime green background inserted on it.  The patch came back as a twill background flap and was accompanied by a surprise matching dangle courtesy of the Key-3.  In 2007 the lodge used a Viking theme titled “What’s in Your Lodge” and the flap issued featured a parakeet with a Viking helmet designed by Jay Carlson.
