Important Notice – 2018 Lodge Due Increase


I hope everyone is having a good start to this busy holiday season!  Please take a few moments to read the following regarding the due increase for the 2018 lodge year.

As decided on by the current Lodge Executive Board with input from the upcoming board members, the decision to increase the price of dues from $15.00 U.S. Dollars to $20.00 U.S. Dollars was made during a special Lodge Executive Board meeting on November 12, 2017.  The $1.00 service charge to use a debit or credit card will continue to be applied.  The reason for the increase is to cover the increase being imposed upon the lodge by the national office as well as to allow for the increase in financial contribution requirements in the upcoming Journey to Excellence program.  This meeting also served to approve the addition of the 2018 Carolina Indian Seminar registration to be added to the O.A. Registration page on the council website.  Both matters of business were approved during the meeting.  Minutes of the meeting can be found by clicking here.

Click here to pay for your annual dues.

If you have any questions regarding the decision, please feel free to contact me at via email at or by phone at 803.899.0968.

I would like to thank you all for your understanding of our decision to increase our annual dues and our reasoning behind the increase.

Yours in Continued Service,

Cole Taylor

Skyuka Lodge Chief

Just in Time For Christmas – T-Bird Club is back


The T-Bird Club is back and available for purchase - just (barely) in time for Christmas!

In 2012, Skyuka Lodge offered an “all-access” club for those that prefer to pay a one-time fee to register for lodge events. This is being offered again in 2014 and will only be available until March 1st, 2014. Becoming a member of the exclusive T-Bird Club will automatically register you for the following events during the year:
  • Lodge Games
  • Spring Fellowship
  • Summer Ordeal
  • Fall Fellowship
  • & Your Yearly Dues
The T-bird Club fee does not include the Dixie Fellowship or the Lodge Banquet.

Sorry, This Item Is No Longer Available For Purchase

Just When You Thought It Was Too Late To Register For Dixie…

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

Breaking News: Website Scores Incorrect – Skyuka Wins 1st Place For Website

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!
