It was announced this morning that somehow the scores from a previous Dixie Fellowship were used to determine the best website in SR-5 at the 2012 Dixie Fellowship. After rechecking the scores (which is common practice before the final scores are posted), it was determined that Skyuka Lodge actually won 1st place for best website in the section! Congratulations to Media Chairman, Britt Helms, Jr. and his advisor Britt Helms, Sr. This gives Skyuka an additional 5 points toward Lodge of the Year, so we'll have to wait and see if this correction tilts the Lodge of the Year scoring in Skyuka's favor. Lets keep our fingers crossed!
Congratulations Skyuka Brothers!We just got the good word that for the 6th year in a row, Skyuka Lodge was awarded "Quality Lodge" for 2011. When you look back at our accomplishments in the past year, it really shouldn't be a surprise. Don't be fooled into thinking that it is a "given" though. Only about half of the lodges in SR-5 were awarded quality lodge this past year. With the Dixie Fellowship right around the corner, getting the quality lodge designation is a big deal - since it is a requirement for being considered for the SR-5 Lodge of the Year award.
