The Centurion Award aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or Arrowmen who have meaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, inspired others to follow in their footsteps. This award is a one-time recognition associated with the centennial anniversary of the OA that is bestowed by the national Order of the Arrow committee. The following deserving brothers form Skyuka were selected from the many deserving brothers who have kept Skyuka Lodge and the ideals of our order strong over the last 100 years.
The Summer Ordeal on August 14-16, 2015 may be the most exciting time in the life of the lodge – as we welcome in new members in large numbers to our brotherhood. Ordeal candidates might find this page helpful. If you are an Ordeal candidate, please be sure to eat a good meal before arriving at camp on Friday night and please don’t pre-order a steak from the lodge as you’ll be unable to cook it before your adventure begins on Friday night. Any existing Ordeal member that became an Ordeal member of the lodge at last year’s Summer Ordeal (or before) is eligible to work toward Brotherhood status. Those doing so might find this site helpful: http://www.jumpstart.oa-bsa.org/. Brotherhood candidates (and all brothers, really) should also know how to sing the Order of the Arrow song found HERE. Summer Ordeal registration will be open from late June until sometime on August 9th when it will automagically close. Exact open and close times for registration are regulated by a computer server, so be sure to register early to avoid missing online registration deadline.

The Skyuka Spring Fellowship is our first lodge event following the Dixie and is always lots of fun. It is filled with lots of activities as well as opportunities to provide cheerful service to Camp Bob Hardin as we help get it ready for the nearly 1000 campers that will arrive in the coming weeks. We’ll also elect new lodge and chapter youth leaders as part of the Spring Fellowship. If you know any scouts or scouters who were unable to attend the Summer Ordeal in 2014, make sure that they are aware of this fellowship as it will be their last opportunity to gain membership in the Order without having to be re-elected. Also, if you know of any Ordeal members who are eligible for Brotherhood, be sure to make them aware of the upcoming event as well. We look forward to seeing you all at Skyuka Lodge’s Spring Fellowship on May 15th-17th, 2015 at Camp Bob Hardin. Remember, all attendees must register using the online system. Even if paying by check mailed to the Palmetto Council office, you will need to use the online form to register (just go to the "Pay Later" option for registration that is shown). This is a great help to centralize the registration process for our lodge secretary and his advisers as they work to get attendees signed in at the event and helps us plan for buying food for the event. DID YOU MISS GETTING REGISTERED? There is a $5.00 fee added to the regular registration fees for those that show up at the event without signing up online, and those folks are always the last in line for meals as well. Registration will end automagically on May 10th, 2015.

The Chester Chapter did an excellent job with the Annual Skyuka Lodge Awards Banquet held at the Gateway Conference Center in Richburg, SC. Congratulations to Ryan Hobbs and Jimmy Summers for being selected as recipients of the Founder's Award for 2014. Also honored for their dedicated service to the lodge during the past year with the Skyuka Indian on the Mountain award were Lodge Chief Joseph Kovas and Keith McFarland.
A key component to being a force to be reckoned with at the Dixie Fellowship is the preparation that happens prior to the event. With that in mind, all Skyuka brothers who are signed up to attend the 2015 Dixie are strongly encouraged to sign up for and attend the Lodge Games event on March 27th-29th at Camp Bob Hardin. While there, we will tie up loose ends (Thing 1 and Thing 2), brainstorm winning ideas, practice quest events, put the polish on our lodge display, tune our noisemakers and generally get ready to have a great Dixie. Who knows, we may even have green eggs and ham for breakfast and roast beast for dinner. We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge Games!
