Another Successful Ordeal, plus notes on Summer Camp and NOAC

by Chris Brightwell on May 21, 2012

After a weekend featuring some of the best Ordeal weather we’ve seen in a long time, we can welcome 69 new Ordeal members into our Lodge and congratulate 17 members on sealing their membership in the Order by attaining Brotherhood.  In total, nearly 200 people were in camp for a fantastic weekend of service, a bit of fellowship, and a fantastic steak dinner.

Congratulations to our new Ordeal and Brotherhood members!

With the May Ordeal in the books, all eyes look forward to summer camp and NOAC.

Summer Camp in the GAC — If your unit has not registered for summer camp, there may still be a chance for you to attend one of the Greater Alabama Council camps.  Camp Comer and Camp Sequoyah are both at or near capacity and the few remaining slots are filling up quickly.  If you’re interested in putting your name in one of those final slots, contact the council office.

NOAC — Planning and preparation continue for the 2012 National Order of the Arrow Conference (or “NOAC”), set for July 30th through August 4th Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.  Coosa Lodge is riding chartered buses to the conference and ongoing fundraising efforts have dramatically reduced the cost for our contingent members.  The current cost is $400, which is down from our original estimate of $600 and is actually below the actual cost for participants as set by the National Committee.  If you want to attend NOAC, the time to sign up is NOW!  Click here to for NOAC information and a registration/payment link.
