Fellow Arrowmen of Troop 250,
You are invited to join your OA Brothers for the Fall Fellowship: October 20-22, 2017.
Please register here as soon as possible: http://palmettocouncil.org/oa-registrati/
All Arrowmen (including new Ordeal members) should register as “Old Brother” except if working on completing Brotherhood conversion during this event.
Note for those tapped out this summer: If you have NOT completed your Ordeal YET, the next opportunity to do so will be during the Spring Fellowship.
“Probably the most important meeting of the members of Skyuka Lodge is the Fall Fellowship. This is because much goes on at this event that affects the lodge during the year to come. Those Ordeal members that are eligible may crystallize their tie with the Order by gaining their Brotherhood status. Like all other lodge events, this one features Indian seminars for those who wish to learn more. Our chapters will compete against one another in our Chapter Games event. While this may seem like the last lodge event of the year, it is really setting the stage for the events of the year to come.”
Brotherhood Candidates: After 10 months of service as an Ordeal member and fulfilling certain requirements you may take part in the Brotherhood conversion, which places further emphasis on the ideals of Scouting and the Order. Completion of this ceremony signifies full membership in the Order of the Arrow.
If you completed your Ordeal in August 2016, or before, you are eligible. Please contact me so I can help you to prepare for the Brotherhood requirements.
Old Brothers/Steak dinner: The steak dinner option is available for all Brothers. I encourage all Scouts and Scouters to purchase and enjoy the steak dinner on Friday night.
