Yours in Brotherhood, Cole Taylor, Skyuka Lodge Chief

Hey do you know there is a 100% Brotherhood patch? Here’s how you get it.

(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.    

Tools Needed-2017 Summer Ordeal!

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.

Spring Fellowship Set For May 19-21, 2017

BSA - spring-registrationThe 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 hundreds of campers that will arrive in the coming weeks. If you know any scouts or scouters who were unable to attend the Summer Ordeal in 2016, 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. Ordeal candidates can get information about what to bring, how to pack and such by clicking here.  Ordeal Candidates can register for the event by clicking here. 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.  Brotherhood candidates can register for Spring Fellowship by clicking here. We look forward to seeing you ALL at Skyuka Lodge’s Spring Fellowship on May 19th-21nd, 2017 at Camp Bob Hardin.

Registration for 2016 Lodge Games is Now Open

bsa tbirdA 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 2016 Dixie are strongly encouraged to sign up for and attend the Lodge Games event on March 18th-20th at Camp Bob Hardin. Registration will close at midnight on March 13th. While there, we will tie up loose ends, 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. We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge Games!
