"Examples that won't fly". I crack me up.
I went with #1. I made the original #3, but I don't really like the chunkier version of it. I also never really loved the letters on it either. I like that #1 carries all of it's symbolism in a simple logo, rather than spelling anything out in letter form. I also think that the bigger, bolder logo will be more easily recognizable from a distance.

I like the red background, gold anchor, and some sort of border around the edge, likely also gold.

I also like the way the black outline around the logo makes it pop, but the simplicity of a two color scheme is good, too.

If the cost isn't too crazy, I like the heavy duty construction option.

That blue header where it says the time and post number would make for a nice three colour combo

An interesting question: Is the burgee about identifying other members of the secret society or promoting the forum? I tend to learn towards the later and really felt the burgee should promote curiosity from those who don't recognize it ( thing the AGLCA burgee does that extremely well). Having a burgee for the secret society will probably only get me to fly it at rendezvous. May be time for me to work on the TF rendezvous burgee.

This is sort of what I was thinking when I came up with the anchor design......

Yep, a goodie. At some point the horns got less hornier (sort of like Mr. RTF as he aged). I don't really remember why actually. The logo that is, not RTF. Someone somewhere mentioned clipping them a bit so I did. I believe I thought that the sharper horns looked like, well, horns. trumpets of sorts. The clipped looked a little more like letters? Who knows. It was late.

Some rope around the anchor would add a nice visual.

The yellow (gold?) color looks too much like a gold looper flag. I like the maroon but could suggest blue flag with red design outlined in white

I voted #1 but really love the black outline on the other one. The colors are perfect for me.
