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

This is being offered again in 2015 and will only be available until March 1st, 2015. 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.

2014 Skyuka Lodge Summer Ordeal

The Summer Ordeal on August 1-3, 2014 may be the most exciting time in the life of the lodge – as we welcome in new members in large numbers to our brotherhood.

Ordeal candidates might find this page helpful. If you are an Ordeal candidate, please be sure to eat a good meal before arriving at camp on Friday night and please don’t pre-order a steak from the lodge as you’ll be unable to cook it before your adventure begins on Friday night.

Any existing Ordeal member that became an Ordeal member of the lodge at last year’s Summer Ordeal (or before) is eligible to work toward Brotherhood status. You might find this site helpful: http://www.jumpstart.oa-bsa.org/. You should also know how to sing the Order of the Arrow song found HERE.

Summer Ordeal registration will be open from June 16 until sometime on July 21st  extended to July 24th when it will automagically close. Exact open and close times are regulated by a computer server, so be sure to register early to avoid missing online registration.

2014 Spring Fellowship Registration

May 16,2014 - May 18,2014    Time: 5:00 pm - 10:30 am
The Skyuka Spring Fellowship is our first lodge event following the Dixie and is always lots of fun.  It is filled with lots of activities as well as opportunities to provide cheerful service to Camp Bob Hardin as we help get it ready for the nearly 1000 campers that will arrive in the coming weeks.  We'll also elect new lodge and chapter youth leaders as part of the Spring Fellowship. If you know any scouts or scouters who were unable to attend the Summer Ordeal in 2013, make sure that they are aware of this fellowship as it will be their last opportunity to gain membership in the Order without having to be re-elected. Also, if you know of any Ordeal members who are eligible for Brotherhood, be sure to make them aware of the upcoming event as well.  We look forward to seeing you all at Skyuka Lodge’s Spring Fellowship on May 16th-18th, 2014 at Camp Bob Hardin. NOTE: Remember, all attendees must register using the online system, even if paying by check mailed to the Palmetto Council office.  This is a great help to centralize the registration process for our lodge secretary as he works to get attendees signed in at the event and helps us plan for buying food for the event. There is a $5.00 fee added to the regular registration fees for those that show up without signing up online, and those folks are always the last in line for meals as well.
Registration Automagically Closes Sometime On May 9th  May 12th, 2014

Oct 25,2013 - Oct 27,2013    Time: 5:00 pm - 10:00 am

The Fall Fellowship is our time to relax and enjoy fellowship and fun with our Skyuka brothers.  Being as it is so close to Halloween, we'll  have pumpkin carving contests, costume contests, chapter games and lots of other fun.  No work is planned, but you never know when a small opportunity for service might present itself. The Fall Fellowship also is a great time for those interested in any of the many facets of the American Indian Affairs part of the OA to learn more and become involved.  Workshops on various Indian Affairs topics will be available on Saturday and the day will be topped off with a pow-wow following supper on Saturday We will be offering Brotherhood Conversion for anyone who completed their Ordeal prior to the August of this year. Registration automagically opens sometime on September 16th and closes automagically sometime on October 17th (extended three days by proclamation of the lodge chief). Everyone needs to register online, even if you elect to send your payment into the council office rather than pay through PayPal online.

So sign up and get ready to have FUN!

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 postions 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. Hopefully the conch shell horns will be available for those that ordered them and also the 2013 Skyukaville flap should be available to pass out to those attending Dixie. We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge Games
