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!
Congratulations to Skyuka Lodge's former Supreme Chief of the Fire, Robert "Bob" Justice, on his designation as a recipient of the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. This award is so rare that only 1 out of every 1000 Eagle Scouts has been chosen for the honor since it's inception by the National Eagle Scout Association in 1969. A reception in Bob's honor will be held prior to the council's annual banquet on January 30th, 2016
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.
Just a reminder that the annual Skyuka Lodge Banquet will take place on February 7th, 2015 @ the Gateway Conference Center in Richburg, SC (click HERE for directions). Social Hour begins at 6pm. There will be some fantastic items available for silent bid with proceeds going to assist with the cost of transportation for those brothers who are attending the 100th Anniversary NOAC in August. Cost for the event is $15 per attendee. Registration for the event will close this Friday, January 30th, 2015.
Registration for the Lodge Banquet is Closed
Remember that the deadline to pre-register for the 2015 Dixie Fellowship is on January 21st, 2015. Pre-registration will allow you to not only register for the event, but to also order some of the great items that they are available for purchase. Once Dixie pre-registrations are closed on the 21st of January, you can still register for the Dixie itself and order Skyuka Dixie themed t-shirts and hats until February 20th, 2015. Is there someone who should be attending that isn't listed as registered below? If so, contact them and remind them to get signed up ASAP! [EVR_ATTENDEE event_id="1"]
