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. You can even get registered for the Dixie now by Clicking Here. The deadline for pre-ordering Dixie Trading Post Items is January 22nd, 2016. NOTE: Be sure to get copies of your current BSA medical forms to Dixie Advisor Doug Bartlett and he will collect them for both the Lodge Games event in March and the Dixie Fellowship in April. Mail the COPIES of your BSA medical forms to Doug at the following address: 2016 Dixie, 15003 Ashlight Drive Charlotte NC 28278
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
Congratulations to the following brothers who stepped up, were elected by their peers and have taken the reigns of Skyuka lodge for the upcoming lodge year.
- Joseph Kovas - Lodge Chief
- Alex Summers - Vice Chief of Program
- Dan Watson - Vice Chief of American Indian Affairs
- Sam Gustin - Vice Chief of Inductions
- Ryan Hobbs - Secretary

The Key-3, while eating a cheeseburger in paradise, decided that we needed to add more arrowmen to the flock of Skyukaville residents attending this year's Dixie Fellowship. So they decided to extend Dixie registration all the way to April 1st (and this is no April Fool). Registration is only $55 and we've made it really easy to register. Just click on the link below to get signed up and send payment via Paypal.
Oops! You Waited Too Long To Register Registration Is Now Closed
In an effort to give brothers a little extra time to get signed up for Skyuka Lodge Games, the Key 3 has decided to extend registration for this event until March 16th. But don't wait, get signed up NOW!

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!
