Skyuka had an awesome weekend at the 2014 Dixie Fellowship held at Camp Coker and hosted by Santee Lodge. 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.

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!
