Although I will be sorry to see you go, it is understood that everyone comes to a point where their journey follows a different path.
Thank you for everything you have done for all of us fans of Paizo products. Best wishes on whatever and whereever you journey takes you next.
Unfortunately according to the way that Additional Reources is to be interpreted, if it is not listed in the Additional Resources entry as either being legal or not legal for play, it is not legal. Sacred Implements are used by an archetype which is legal so it may have been an oversight for mention in either Additional Resources or Campaign Clarifications. It may be an upcoming chronicle item as well (complete theory).
In other words, they are not legal but I do recommend waiting for other answers before you proceed.

Many thanks for the update, John!!
I am right there with you all on the desire for a update to the Additional Resources and Campaign Clarifications. I do have to admit, the delay has caused me to want to play more home games on the side due to wanting to test character options that as not yet sanctioned for PFS play. I have two others in my house that play PFS as well as those in my area that are clamoring for an update.
I am theorizing that many of the delays have come from the recent site issues. Con Season and the Playtest are probably contributing factors prior to the site downtime.
My plan is trying to keep as patient as possible while we await this update, regardless of who has control of making the update live currently, and making sure my area is notified as soon as it launches. When it does, I will probably hear the sounds of rejoicing from anywhere in the world.
I am sure our continued patience will be rewarded at some point as I am sure there are things going on that we aren't even aware of causing delays in getting the hotly anticipated update to AR and CC posted to the site. Hang in there!!
I know the Playtest announcement is still fresh from this past week and has left a ton of questions. I can assure you that if you keep an eye on upcoming blogs, a lot of those questions will be answered on approach to the Playtest and beyond.
I know that this post did not contain any answers and, to be honest, I really don't have any myself.
E-Mail received and I am working on it now.
Hail CrystalSeas and thank you for your inquiry. I will start by stating that I am not part of Organized Play Management but I will try to help.
The Beginner's Box is used for the Pathfinder Society Academy program and the document you mentioned is probably used in the Transitions phase (as I do not have the current PSA materials to confirm) of the program. From a quick review of the Beginner's Box Pathfinder Society Character Creation Guide, I did not see anything that was in error or has changed with the exception of the address to the Web Traits Enhancement document for picking traits as the Pathfinder Society section of the site has undergone changes over the years.
If you have players transitioning from the Beginner's Box to Pathfinder Society play, I would strongly recommend using the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide in conjunction with the Beginner's Box Pathfinder Society Character Creation Guide. The addition of the Roleplaying Guild Guide adds Factions and their respective Traits to the character creation process and will help to round out a PFS character.
Hope this helps and please feel free to ask any additional questions.
It sounds like the Con was in Virginia so the MegaRegion 2 boon should have been in given and may have been an error (possible, we are human after all.). I know this is not the forum for it but please let me know which of the MegaRegion boons you received. I have the Witchwyrd and would consider a trade but would need to know which boon you received.
Hoping I can help.
