The preliminary design for the Skyuka 2017 Dixie Fellowship patch is shown below and is available for pre-order at $2.00 each. You can order both delegate and trader patches. You must be registered to attend the Dixie with Skyuka in order to have your order processed.
Registration for the 2017 Dixie Fellowship is now open online and you can even pre-order Dixie related items like patches, hats, shirts and belt buckles. The 2017 Dixie will be hosted by Muskogee Lodge at Camp Barstow near Columbia SC and will take place the weekend of April 28-30th, 2017. If you register to attend the Dixie Fellowship then we also would expect to see you at the lodge games event at Camp Bob Hardin on the weekend of March 25th as we make sure that Skyuka Lodge is ready to compete and put our best foot forward at the conclave in April.
The brothers of Skyuka Lodge had a great time at the 2016 Dixie Fellowship at the Knox Scout Reservation. The event was rich in fun, fellowship and friendly competition between our section lodges. Below are the competition results for our lodge from this year's Dixie:
- 1st place Website (5th year in a row)
- 1st place Arrow/Softball Throw
- 2nd place Iron Scout
- 3rd place Totem Pole (hand tools)
- 3rd place Human Foosball (tie)
- 3rd place Knot Tying
- 3rd place Fancy Dance in Parade of Braves
- Honor Lodge
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 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!
The Dixie 2016 will be hosted by Bob White Lodge 87 at Knox Scout Reservation (1150 Fred R. Prater Pkwy, Lincolnton, GA 30817) on April 22-24th, 2016 and is sure to be a fun-filled weekend. 1000+ scouts and leaders from Section 5 will gather for food, friendship, fellowship and of course, good-natured competition. From AIA activities and competition, Administrative competitions, the Quest for the Golden Arrow and Knowledge and Training sessions, there are plenty of areas for our lodge to engage and excel. Plan on attending the Lodge Games event in March 2016 where we tweak what needs tweaking in order to make a lasting impression on everyone in attendance at the event.

Skyuka had an awesome weekend at the 2014 Dixie Fellowship held at Camp Coker and hosted by Santee Lodge. Spirit filled the air as Skyuka came away with another Spirit Award victory with our "Skyuka One - What's in Your Lodge" campaign. Britt Helms Jr., Lodge Secretary and Media Chairman, swept 3 out of 5 of the administrative awards for Skyuka by winning first place in Lodge Newsletter, Lodge Planbook and in the Lodge Website categories - a first for Skyuka Lodge Our canoeing team took a first place in the Quest for the Golden Arrow while our fire building and knot tying team both brought home third place wins in their respective events. This put Skyuka in second place, overall, in the Quest this year. Congratulations to all who help make Skyuka a great lodge year round, not just at Dixie time. Here is a link to the official run-down of all of the 2014 Dixie Fellowship awards. We're gathering pictures and will soon put up a gallery of pics from this year's event for you to enjoy.
The Skyuka Lodge Games is our last chance to get things in order before we travel to the Dixie Fellowship in April. If you're going to the Dixie, then you really need to be at the Lodge Games to help us determine who are the best brothers to plug into various positions that are available. You can choose to bring your own steak/burger/chicken/hot dog or you can choose to pay for a steak up front during registration and allow the lodge to get your steak for you to pick up and cook upon arrival at camp. Registration for the Lodge Games closes automagically sometime on March 14th, extended to March 17th, so please get registered prior to that time. We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge Games
