First Wahunsenakah Flaps of 2010

The BSA celebrates its 100th Anniversary on February 9th and the first flaps from Wahunsenakah Lodge in 2010 are themed to recognize this special event. Three campfires with the numerals "100" across a black background are central to the minimalist designs of these recruiting issues, available only to Scouts and Scouters who recruit a new boy or girl to Cubs, Boy Scouts, or Venturing. Only adults can earn the adult version of the flap with a silver mylar border, and only youth can earn the youth version with a gold mylar border.

The Lodge name is ghosted under the campfires, although no Lodge number is evident in the design. A ghosted black FDL is in the upper right corner and The words Achtchinkhalan Ehalluchsit are ghosted in black across the top and bottom of the flap, which reportedly translates to Supreme Chief of the Fire Recruiter.
