OA Lodge Fellowship – 2013


Order_of_the_Arrow_sashesMy Fellow Arrowmen,

We are very excited about the upcoming Lodge Fellowship March 15-17th at Camp Snyder.  Registration is currently on-line and we would appreciate you encouraging your fellow chapter members to attend.

To assist you in this I am providing the following list of planned activities.

  • TRAINING  - A fun morning of discussion topics led by our incomparable training team, including the following titles.  ‘Little Boys in Blue’, ‘Burn-Out Beware’, Beyond the Chapter’, ‘Time Management’, ‘See the Silver Lining’, Effective Presentations’, and ‘Inspiring the Next Generation’.
  • CEREMONIES EVALUATIONS - Your chapter ceremonialists will perform ‘Pre-Ordeal’, ‘Brotherhood’, and ‘Vigil’ ceremonies for a panel of judges, and receive valuable advice.
  • BROTHERHOOD CONVERSION - All eligible Arrowmen can take advantage of this excellent opportunity to take Brotherhood.
  • SURVIVAL GAMES - The theme for this Fellowship is Survival.  All participants will receive a ‘Survival Bracelet Kit’, which includes a length of red & white para-cord, a buckle, and instructions for creating it, as well as an event patch.
  • The afternoon will consist of a variety of Chapter games and fun activities:
  • DUCT TAPE CHALLENGE - Each Chapter will be furnished with a roll of Duct Tape and be asked to make a useful object with it.
  • SCAVENGER HUNT - Each Chapter will be provided with a list of questions with clues, and judges on the accuracy of the answers.
  • DODGE BALL TOURNAMENT - Each Chapter will compete to defeat their opponents.
  • DUTCH OVEN COOK-OFF – Chapter Adults will compete to create the best tasting dish using a set list of ingredients (List to follow soon.)
  • CAPTURE THE FLAGS - A multi-team game that challenges each team to out-survive them all.
  • EVENING ACTIVITIES - As we do not have Lodge Elections, we have planned a variety of other evening activities.
  • TABLE GAMES - This is a free time for card & board games.  One of our members is organizing a ‘Magic’ tournament.  Please encourage your members to bring their favorite game.
  • PATCH AUCTION - Mr. James will be conducting a lively patch auction for a good cause.
  • MOVIE - We will show a movie (title to be determined – suggestions?).
  • CAMPFIRE - We will have a campfire with songs, stories, and skits, as well as awards and recognitions.
  • Please do your best to get as many of your Arrowmen to attend as possible, but we need at least 8% of your Chapter to make this work.

Bring your friends and make this Fellowship one to be remembered! Register online today!
