Over 1,000 Arrowmen join from all over Florida, competing in ceremonies, King’s Cup, and more. There are Lodge vs. Lodge games like tug-o-war and volleyball, and training events as well so Arrowmen can get different outlooks on situations from different lodges.

April - Chiefly Speaking

Brothers, 

 

Take a moment to realize what the O-Shot-Caw lodge accomplished this past month by hosting the Section Conference. This was our first Section S-4 conference in 11 years and our rust conference at Camp Elmore. 

It has been almost two years since we began planning for this event, with monthly committee meeting and countless hours behind the scenes, the O-Shot-Caw lodge has been prepping to amaze section S-4 at conference. That's is exactly what we did. Throughout the weekend I had several lodge key 3's, section officers, and even people from last year's host committee tell me how great of a conference this was and how much fun they had. We have certainly raised the bar for hosting conference, and we ought to be very proud of our O-Shot-Caw Lodge. 

 

This has been, without a doubt, one of the most exciting and memorable times in the O-Shot-Caw lodge. For years to come, our future arrowman will be able to look back at this year and see what we accomplished. It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve as your chief, and more importantly be apart of this lodge at this significant time!

2016 Scoutmaster's Camporee

The OA's participation with scoutmaster's camporee is to promote fun and to peak children's interest in the Order. This scoutmaster's camporee was a great success. Many brothers gave up their weekend to volunteer at the OA native american village display or spend an evening cooking and serving food at O-shot-caw lodge heron grill. The OA village consisted of a display put on by each one of our teams (drum, dance, and cerimonies). Hundreds of scouts visited the village and participated in our tours. The tour was a time for each team to explain their purpose in the OA and explain how it related to the native culture. At the end of the tour the scouts would be at the camp promotions booth where they would receive at free "future arrowmen" t-shirt and a brief speech from the camp promotions chairmen. A section conference booth was also in place at this event in an attempt to raise awareness of the spectacular event just around the corner. Overall the event had an amazing turn out and the bothers of 265 were happy to help.


Forever yours,
Cody B
