    The 100th Anniversary of the Order of the Arrow is quickly approaching! One of the many centennial initiatives is the “Centurion Award.” This award recognizes those Arrowmen who have made the greatest impact on our lodge throughout its history.

    We really want to honor these individuals, but we need your help! We need you to please fill out a nomination form for each Arrowman you believe is worthy of this high honor, and send it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

    A nomination can be given for either youth or adult service. If youth, the nominee must have had at least three years of service as a youth; if adult, the nominee must have had at least six years of service as an adult. The nominee may be either living or deceased. More information can be found at

    Fall Fellowship

    The first ever themed Fall Fellowship was held last weekend. Friday evening kicked off with a tailgate-style cracker barrel, complete with trucks, canopies, and good food. The shotgun and rifle ranges, along with the zipline, opened Saturday morning, and chapter members competed to get the most signatures from each area. Lodge elections were held after lunch. Your 2015 Lodge officers are: Nathan Vick, Lodge Chief; Sebastian Torres, Vice Chief of Service; Colin Stapleton, Vice Chief of Brotherhood; and Ben Gilbert, Treasurer. No secretary was elected, so if you are interested in the position, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Following elections were Quest games, including the spam toss, Ultimate Frisbee games, football, and a camp-wide game of Capture the Flag. After dinner, seven Arrowmen sealed their membership in the Order by converting to Brotherhood. After the Brotherhood ceremony was a tailgate party at Stamler, with the UK game on the big screen with cracker barrel to go with it. Sunday morning following cleanup and a Scout's Own service, the climbing tower was open for rappelling. Congratulations to the newly elected lodge officers and those who went through Brotherhood conversion!!
