Be sure to get copies of your current BSA medical forms to Dixie Advisor Doug Bartlett and he will collect them for both the Lodge Games event in March and the Dixie Fellowship in April.  Mail the COPIES of your BSA medical forms to Doug at the following address: 2016 Dixie, 15003 Ashlight Drive Charlotte NC 28278

Register Now For The Fall Fellowship

DHTB PumpkinThe Fall Fellowship is probably the most important meeting of the members of Skyuka Lodge 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. Additionally, 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.

Registration will close on the evening of October 25th.  Those who show up without registering will pay event fees plus a $5.00 surcharge.
