10 Days to Camp Jackson Ordeal

by Chris Brightwell on November 2, 2010

Today is the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.  That means two things:

  1. If you’re 18 or older, today is election day across the country.  Go vote!
  2. We’re 10 days from our final Ordeal of 2010!

I won’t talk politics here, so let me expand on #2.

On-site registration will open at 5pm on Friday, November 12th, at Camp Jackson (Driving Directions via Google Maps).  Registration will be setup in the OA Lodge (near the main entrance to Camp) on Friday.

Candidates who missed the pre-registration deadline will have to pay $40 when the arrive at Camp Jackson.  This includes your fees for the weekend, your OA sash, your Coosa Lodge pocket flap, an Order of the Arrow Handbook, and your dues for 2011.

Cost for current members is $10.

If you’re not sure what to bring for your Ordeal, check out our “Ordeal Instructions” page on this website.  When you get home on Sunday, be sure to take a minute to visit our “After Your Ordeal” page, too.

If you’ve been an Ordeal member for 10 months or more, now is the time to seal your membership in the Order by attaining Brotherhood.  It will help bring the experience of your Ordeal into a sharper focus and give your memories from that weekend more meaning.  There is no cost for this; just tell the registration staff that you want to complete your Brotherhood.

I apologize.
I meant to do this tonight, but Chris beat me to it.
