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.

Skyuka getting their spirit on at the 2014 Dixie Fellowship

 

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.

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.

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

2014 Lodge Games Registration

The Skyuka Lodge Games is our last chance to get things in order before we travel to the Dixie Fellowship in April.  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 positions 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.

Registration for the Lodge Games closes automagically sometime on March 14th, extended to March 17th, so please get registered prior to that time.

We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge Games

Skyuka To Provide Three NYLT Scholarships

Skyuka Lodge is graciously making three (3) scholarships available for members who are interested in attending the upcoming 2014 Palmetto Council National Youth Leadership Training course at CBH.  The recipients will be chosen from those who apply using the online form linked below.  The lodge agrees to cover $150 of the $175 cost for the course.

Want to know more about NYLT?  Check out the course webpage for more information on this week-long event that is full of fun, fellowship and more.  The course website is www.PalmettoNYLT.com.

Deadline for applying to be considered for one of the scholarships is February 10th, 2014.  The lodge Key-3 along with the NYLT Scoutmaster will choose the three recipients from those that apply.  The lodge will notify those who are selected so they can complete a registration form for the course.  Those who were not selected will also be notified so they can register for the course on their own before the March 1st, 2014 deadline.

This is an excellent way for the lodge to support the development of our own members into better, stronger leaders.

Thank you to all that applied for the NYLT Scholarships
