Skyuka Lodge 270 - Providing Cheerful Service For Over 70 Years

Very Few Limited Edition NOAC Fundraiser Sets Remain

Skyuka NOAC limited Edition Flap and Pocket Cover

Only a few of these very limited edition Skyuka NOAC Contingent flap and pocket cover sets remain, so act quickly if you would like to own one or two sets.

Designed to commemorate those Skyuka delegates who attended the 2012 NOAC event while raising funds to help cover the cost of transportation for those who plan to attend the 2015 100th Anniversary NOAC event, only 50 of this set were ever produced, and much fewer remain available for purchase.

Because so few are still available, those interested are asked to contact Doug Bartlett to see if any remain for purchase.

Register For Skyuka Lodge’s Fall Fellowship

Oct 25,2013 - Oct 27,2013    Time: 5:00 pm - 10:00 am

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!

Register for the 2013 Summer Ordeal

The Summer Ordeal on August 2-4, 2013 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. You should also know how to sing the Order of the Arrow song found HERE. Summer Ordeal registration will be open from June 17 until sometime on July 25th. Exact open and close times are regulated by a computer server, so be sure to register early to avoid missing online registration.
