(This week we have special contributors from Troop 66, who are working on their Communication Merit Badge-James Laws, Kevin Laws, Gage Herr, and Patrick Green) Did you know there is a special Skyuka Flap for units that have 100% brotherhood? To be 100% Brotherhood all eligible members in your troop/unit must have brotherhood status at the same time. But it's not permanent. Every time a new member of your troop joins the OA, your 100% Brotherhood goes away until the new ordeals complete their brotherhood. So now that you know what it takes for your troop to be 100% brotherhood, you should encourage your troop to be 100% brotherhood. Once the troop has achieved 100% brotherhood, the scoutmaster must turn in a form to the Lodge Secretary. Here is the link to the form: 100% Brotherhood Conversion Flap Application We would also like to encourage the Skyuka Lodge to have a ceremony to award the patch in front of all the brothers, such as Dinner on Saturday night, to help promote the existence of the 100% Brotherhood patch.
For our new brothers, a link is below that will explain what to bring to Ordeal. If you have questions, please email the Lodge Chief. The contact information is provided in the link. We look forward to seeing everybody next weekend! Ordeal Candidate Info
For all older brothers, Brotherhood candidates, and Ordeal candidates, make sure you bring work gloves, water bottles, and clothes that you can get dirty! It would be very helpful if you also bring hand tools as well, such as rakes, shovels, hoes, and clippers. Make sure they are clearly marked so you don't lose them.
The registration for the 2017 Summer Ordeal is open. Be careful when you are registering; there are different options (Ordeal Candidate, Brotherhood Candidate, Old Brother, and an option for a steak dinner for Brotherhood Candidates and Old Brothers on Friday evening). Use this link to take you to the registration page. OA Events Registration Page Don't forget to bring your health forms Friday evening when you register.
