Letter from Chapter Chief
Hello all new Arrowmen! I would like to congratulate all of you on being elected to the Order
of the Arrow and I am so happy that you decided to go through your Ordeal and become a
part of the OA. The Order of the Arrow is a unique opportunity for you to further your
leadership skills and to participate in the BSA in another exciting way. We have meetings on
the first Thursday of every month at 7 at the LDS Church on Jenkins Road in Wake Forest. At
meetings we plan for upcoming events and discuss official business, but we always have fun,
so I hope to see you there!
New Ordeal Members
Congrats to the following Scouts and adults
for completing their Ordeal ceremonies:
New Brotherhood Members
Congrats to the following Scouts and adults for completing their
Pow Wow is the Lodge’s opening event for the new year. It bring us new Ordeal candidates,
new Brotherhood members and lots of cheerful spirit. This year our Pow Wow theme was
“Fiesta” in preparation for Conclave. We had our new candidates going through their
Ordeal, Pow Wow was held in the dance arbor, quest event style games were held in the
field and a fierce taco brawl was fought by our lodge leadership. If you missed Conclave,
don’t frown, it was all caught on film. Feel free to see what you missed on the National OA
YouTube page or this link:
SUMOS NÚMERO UNO….
WE’RE NUMBER ONE….
You’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it twice… You’ve heard it a thousand times!
Conclave was held this year by Klahican lodge and they did a fantastic job at it.
From giant games of Jenga to dinosaur blow ups… they had it all! Our lodge came
in first place at the quest games and collected the most amount of canned food.
We brought more spirit then we knew what to do with.
A highlight video was made for this event and will be posted on the National OA
YouTube page in the coming month, keep an eye out for it.
There aren’t too many weekends at Camp Durant where we have such great
weather as we did this weekend, May 16-18. The sun was shinning, a nice breezy
wind, awesome temperatures and not a cloud to be seen. We enjoyed the best
weather for setting up cots and cleaning for Summer Camp. Our new members
were hard at work this weekend giving cheerful service to our camp. A large
number of projects were completed thanks to everyone who participated.
Photos from the event can be found on the Lodge Facebook page.
June 12, cookout at Anderson Point.

Pow Wow was great. The Arrowmen had a fun time and not a whole lot of
work. We had 15 Scouts pass their Ordeal and several achieve Brotherhood.
Our theme was “Fiesta” and I thought we did a wonderful job to promoting
spirit. Over all we had a great time with good weather. Conclave was at a small
Lodge, but they did a wonderful job. The Jenga blocks were new and something
we will have in future events. Our lodge won the Quest games and we raised
the largest pound count for the food drive. Camping was good and everyone
had a great time. Spring inductions produced 9 new Ordeal members and 15
new Brotherhood members. Overall we all had a good time.
A major component of the OA is the Lodge campouts that happen throughout the year. These
campouts are where prospective Arrowmen go through their Ordeal to become members of
the OA and where current Arrowmen enjoy service, fellowship, and fun. So far we have been
to Spring Powwow, Conclave, and Spring Inductions. At Powwow and Spring Inductions, we
had Arrowmen serve as Elangomats to help the inductees through their Ordeal while other
Arrowmen simply enjoyed the weekend with friends by participating in the service projects
and watching ceremonies and the shows. At Conclave, the largest weekend outing of the year,
Arrowmen were allowed to freely explore and enjoy what Camp Bowers had to offer and
everyone found something fun to do between OAX, the blood bus, or giant Jenga. After lunch,
the whole section gathered for Quest for the Golden Arrow where Occoneechee took home
the crown once again. That night, Klahican Lodge treated the section to a great show which
was followed by a fun time at Cardinaval with fried food, ice cream, and other fun activities.
This fall, we will be going to Fall Fellowship to put more potential Arrowmen through their
Ordeal to be followed by Occoneechee Council's first Council Camporee in more than 2 years!
