The Chester Chapter did an excellent job with the Annual Skyuka Lodge Awards Banquet held at the Gateway Conference Center in Richburg, SC. Congratulations to Ryan Hobbs and Jimmy Summers for being selected as recipients of the Founder's Award for 2014. Also honored for their dedicated service to the lodge during the past year with the Skyuka Indian on the Mountain award were Lodge Chief Joseph Kovas and Keith McFarland.
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 2015 Dixie are strongly encouraged to sign up for and attend the Lodge Games event on March 27th-29th at Camp Bob Hardin. While there, we will tie up loose ends (Thing 1 and Thing 2), 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. Who knows, we may even have green eggs and ham for breakfast and roast beast for dinner. We look forward to seeing you at the Lodge Games!
Registration For Lodge Games Has Closed

Dues run from January to December each year and when you renew your dues online, we also collect an additional $1 to cover Paypal fees associated with your purchase. You can always elect to mail a check for $15 to the council office to cover your annual dues, if you prefer.
