The OA can help strengthen troops by providing leadership training and opportunities for OA members and by assisting in summer camp promotion, camporees, Scout shows, and other activities. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long-term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others.



Greetings Arrowmen

We are sorry to report that the Annual Fellowship this weekend (Sept. 14-16, 2018) has to be cancelled due to weather. The models are changing showing a more Southward approach to the storm and they are anticipating that it will stall when it makes land fall. The most recent models show a downward spin at that time bringing 35 mph winds and 5-18 inch rains throughout the weekend at BCSR, starting Friday and running to first part of next week. In abundance of caution the leadership of the Lodge feels the best course of action is to cancel the event.

The event will be postponed until the weekend of November 9-11, 2018, which is are Fall Induction weekend. If you remember this happened to us last year and we had to postpone for the same reason to the next event. So mark your calendars reflecting the dual event. More information will be sent out as we approach that event. 

Items we have to do at the November event: Induction (Ordeal), Lodge Officer vote, Vigil Honor induction, Service, Fellowship, and fun. With all of this going on, we will need as many Arrowmen to be at this event to help with all these tasks as possible.

So, let everyone in your troops know of this postponement to get the word out. Take care of yourself and families and monitor weather broadcast for any changes. Remember to "Be Prepared". Stay safe and if you need anything please let us know. 

In Cheerful Service,

Will Hancock, Chief

Jim Gray, Lodge Adviser

Daniel Victorio, Staff Pro
