NOAC 2015

Posted on Nov 13 2014 - 6:51pm

ALL ARROWMEN,

The lodge has just released the following info about NOAC 2015:
NOAC, the National Order of the Arrow Conference, will take place August 3-8, 2015 (August 2-9 with travel), at Michigan State University. It is a time where Arrowmen from all around the United States gather to participate in many activities including high adventure skills, leadership classes, Native American crafts, sports, patch trading, and various special events and competitions. This NOAC will be a very unique experience as 2015 is the 100 th Anniversary of the OA. Due to the significance of this event, all those attending will receive a special edition red sash not available to anyone except those attending NOAC. However, space is extremely limited as there is a record number of people attending. The Lodge has 93 contingent slots available so anyone who wishes to attend must submit an application. The youth and adults will be selected from among the applicants, giving priority to youth as there is a limit of one adult per three youth. The applications are available on the Lodge webpageor by clicking here for the Youth Applicationor clicking here for the Adult Application. The application with a deposit of $100 is due by November 31, 2014, and can be mailed to or turned in at the Longhorn Council Office. The total cost will be between $600 and $700 depending on the final price of included transportation.
 
I would like you all to consider to go to this once in a lifetime event. I know that there are fundraisers the troop is doing in the following months that could also help offset this cost (that includes everything). If you have any questions feel free to contact me at Freddie.kruger1@icloud.com or you can contact the OA officers on the website. This is the perfect opportunity to experience an Order of the arrow event on the national level and gain new relationships and experiences.

Bartle Summer Camp -NEW Information

Posted on Oct 31 2014 - 6:57am

We now have our dates and camp assigned.  We did not get all our first choices, but we did get one important one- we will be at Camp LoneStar in 2015!  Within Lonestar we are assigned to the Kick-a-poo site.

The biggest change is the date.  We have been assigned Session 4 - July 6th-16th, and we will be leaving on July 5th.  One great thing about getting 4th session is that it should not conflict with Summer Band Camp, which has been an issue for many in years past with Session 5.

Please let me know if the new date is a problem, hopefully it won't be.  Also, if you have not already signed up on the website, please do so.  We only have so many spots and they are going quickly.

 Register here.

Lastly, please make certain that you have the $50 deposit in your Scout account.  Our next payment date will be in February (1/2 down).
