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.

Those Ordeal members that are eligible may crystallize their tie with the Order by gaining their Brotherhood status. More than most other lodge events, this one features Indian seminars and pow wows for those who wish to learn more. Additionally, our chapters will compete against one another in our Chapter Games event. While this may seem like the last lodge event of the year, it is really setting the stage for the events of the year to come. Registration will close on the evening of October 28th. Those who show up without registering will pay event fees plus a $5.00 surcharge.
Registration for the 2016 Summer Ordeal, to be held at Camp Bob Hardin on August 5-7, 2016, is now open on the Palmetto Council website until July 29th Registrations for all of this year's events are listed there, so be extra careful to be sure that you are registering for the Summer Ordeal Event using the appropriate selection (Ordeal Candidate, Brotherhood Candidate, Old Brother and/or the option to order a steak for Friday Night's supper).

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. Those doing so might find this site helpful: http://www.jumpstart.oa-bsa.org/. Brotherhood candidates (and all brothers, really) should also know how to sing the Order of the Arrow song found HERE.
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!

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 Summer Ordeal this year. So sign up and get ready to have FUN! Registration automagically opens sometime on September 15th and closes automagically sometime on October 23rd.
