The Lansing Convention Center Home of the 2015 NOAC TOR

Chris Jensen of Streamwood Inc. has announced plans for the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference Trade-O-Ree (TOR). The National OA is trying to push to get 10,000 Arrowmen to attend the Centennial NOAC to celebrate 100 years of Scouting’s Brotherhood of Cheerful Service. If you are going to get that many Boy Scouts together in one place then of course you are going to have patch tradings. So Chris is stepping up to the plate and hosting the TOR. Here is what he shares in the TOR flier.

Streamwood has the experience of sponsoring 42 Scout Memorabilia Trade-o-ree’s since 1990, and will do this right. We have the experienced staff, the equipment, and the plans to make this the best ever TOR. The Lansing Convention Center location is only 3 miles from the Michigan State University Campus, and is in the exact same huge room as the 2006 Pre-NOAC TOR that we sponsored. You just cannot get this size facility any closer to the OA National Conference. The Convention Center is just across the Grand River from the Radisson Hotel. The two buildings are connected with a covered and enclosed air-conditioned walkway. The Radisson is a fine hotel with all the amenities, including free airport shuttle, restaurant facilities, indoor pool, exercise room, covered parking, business center, and its 100% smoke free.


Streamwood is negotiating a great group rate for the rooms at the Radisson Hotel as the primary hotel for our event, in addition to several other hotels in close proximity to the Lansing Center and MSU. We will be posting more information on the Streamwood website as we get the contracts signed.


WE HAVE LOTS OF SPACE! 42,000+ SQUARE FEET of Convention Center to show your stuff. Yep, it’s more than a full acre, in one big room, on ONE level (with warm floors), great lighting, and no obstructions in anyone’s way. It’s spacious, clean, safe, and THE biggest possible available location in the MSU/Lansing area for a TOR! There will be Lansing Center security guards on duty 24 hours a day to help us. This big room has concessions available in the corner of the room for snacks, drinks, and meals so you can get something to keep you going through the marathon TOR sessions. Our big room has great loading facilities, with multiple loading dock doors leading directly into our room for easy access. Streamwood will be providing a full load of hand trucks, wagons, flatbed carts, and our paid staff to assist traders unload their vehicles and get to their assigned tables.


We are starting our mailing of invitations to all of our 10,000+ scouting collectors worldwide. So, get your scout stuff together to attend. BRING THE WHOLE LODGE, WE HAVE BUS PARKING AVAILABLE. You will not be disappointed. Check out the Streamwood web site for more complete information, including links to all sorts of resources for planning your trip.

We have never wimped out and closed early just to make room for someone else! Its our room, and we are NOT leaving early! The National OA Conference Registration and move-in day is Monday, August 3 for participants. Many of the NOAC Staff are moving in earlier, on an “As-Needed” basis. The NOAC Opening Show will be on Monday evening. Because this NOAC is going to be the largest ever in total attendance, some lodges with early morning move-in times are expected to be arriving into the Lansing area on Sunday 8/2.

Would you please email me some info. I am a Vigil member and have been trading flaps for over 50 years. I just received information that I will not be able to serve on the NOAC staff. Thus, I am looking for alternatives. Ziggy

Best advice is visit http://www.streamwood.net and see what is happening with the TOR right before NOAC. It’s three days Aug 1-3, 2015.
