The Mic-O-Say 2013 Tribal Celebration Auction
This year's Tribal Celebration was held at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation on May 31-June 2, 2013.
We hosted another great Tribal Silent Auction again this year. David Allen came up with the idea for a Mic-O-Say Tribal auction eight 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, June 1st at the Bartle Scout Reservation starting at 10am. There were over 400 items in the auction and all the proceeds (over $6000 this year and over $36,000 for the past seven years) went to the Tribe of Mic-O-Say.
Here are the bidders checking out bids during the last hour of the auction.
This year we had a Camp Osceola belt buckle up for auction!
The bidding was fast and furious for this and the other 400 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 to donate your item. Items do not have to be Scouting oriented--so please look for an item or two that you no longer need to donate.

If you wish to purchase a copy of "IN THE WOODS", the history of camping in our council, call the HOAC Camping & Program Services Office at (816) 569-4933. 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 a still a few left for sale. It is a great gift for Scouts, Scouters, friends, etc. Several have been purchased by Scouts and donated to school or public libraries. 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. Bring your copy to the Tribal Celebration and I will be happy to sign it in the Great Hall during the auction on Saturday.
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
