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 hundreds of campers that will arrive in the coming weeks. If you know any scouts or scouters who were unable to attend the Summer Ordeal in 2016, 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. Ordeal candidates can get information about what to bring, how to pack and such by clicking here. Ordeal Candidates can register for the event by clicking here. 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. Brotherhood candidates can register for Spring Fellowship by clicking here. We look forward to seeing you ALL at Skyuka Lodge’s Spring Fellowship on May 19th-21nd, 2017 at Camp Bob Hardin.
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!
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

Spirit filled the air as Skyuka came away with another Spirit Award victory with our "Skyuka One - What's in Your Lodge" campaign. Britt Helms Jr., Lodge Secretary and Media Chairman, swept 3 out of 5 of the administrative awards for Skyuka by winning first place in Lodge Newsletter, Lodge Planbook and in the Lodge Website categories - a first for Skyuka Lodge Our canoeing team took a first place in the Quest for the Golden Arrow while our fire building and knot tying team both brought home third place wins in their respective events. This put Skyuka in second place, overall, in the Quest this year. Congratulations to all who help make Skyuka a great lodge year round, not just at Dixie time. Here is a link to the official run-down of all of the 2014 Dixie Fellowship awards. We're gathering pictures and will soon put up a gallery of pics from this year's event for you to enjoy.
