The Mic-O-Say 2014 Tribal Celebration Auction
This year's Tribal Celebration was held at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation on May 30-June 1, 2014.
We hosted another great Tribal Silent Auction this year. David Allen came up with the idea for a Mic-O-Say Tribal auction ten years ago and it has raised (with your help) a tremendous amount of money for our Tribe. It was held in the Great Hall on Saturday, May 31st at the Bartle Scout Reservation starting at 10am. There were over 500 items in the auction and all the proceeds (over $7000 this year and over $50,000 for the past ten years) went to the Tribe of Mic-O-Say.
Here are the bidders making bids during the last hour of the auction.
This year we had a rare Camp Osceola merit badge sash and a 1924 Camp Dan Sayre picture up for auction!
The bidding was fast and furious for this and the other 500 items that sold-every one went home a winner!
For the last several years the auction has grown in size and raised funds that go to the Tribe of Mic-O-Say to reduce expenses on the reservation.
Thank you for your support of the Tribe of Mic-O-Say through your self denial contributions and our auction.
If you have items (Scout memorabilia, old uniforms, books on Indian Lore, or any item that you would like to donate to your Tribal auction--please call the HOAC camping office at (816) 569-4933 or leave it with Jeff at the desk on the first floor Customer Service desk at the HOAC Service Center. Items do not have to be Scouting oriented--so please look for an item or two that you no longer need to donate. Andy Dubill Sachem Spotted Gray Eagle

If you wish to purchase a copy of "IN THE WOODS", the history of camping in our council, call the Jeff in Customer Service at the HOAC Service Center at (816) 569-4939. This 210 page coffee table book is a limited edition history of all the camps in our council from 1910 through today. It is loaded with historic pictures and interesting stories about all of our camps.
Only 1,500 copies of this book were printed and there are less than 100 left for sale. It is a great gift for Scouts, Scouters, friends, etc. Once sold the book will not be reprinted-so purchase one before they are gone.
The price is only $29.95 (plus $5.00 shipping) and all proceeds go the Heart of America Council-- Camp Staff Scholarship Fund.
I try to keep the website updated so it can be a resource to all collectors. If you know of old pictures, patches, sashes, or other accumulations of Scouting material, please email me and let me know.
You will help us put on an even more complete display in 2029 -- the 100th Anniversary of the Tribe of Mic-O-Say.
Thank you!! Andy Dubill
