O-Shot-Caw Lodge put on so much during this Winter season. We had a beautiful Winter Ordeal weekend at Camp Everglades. We also put on a massive Indian Display at both Lincoln-Marti Camporee and Scoutmas-ter's Camporee. O-Shot-Caw Lodge had an amazing banquet and selected very suitable leaders for recipients for the Founder's Award and Vigil Honor.
The Winter Ordeal was held January 6-8, 2012, at Camp Ever-glades. It was a great weekend with gorgeous weather, great food, awe-some fellowship, and cheerful service. Our largest project was the con-struction of a pole barn for the camp tractor. We inducted over 100 new members and about two dozen brothers sealed their ties in Brotherhood . Congratulations to all new brothers and Brotherhood members! This year we provided a heavy presence at Lincoln-Marti Cam-poree and Scoutmaster's Camporee. Lincoln-Marti was much bigger than last year and Ryan Rodriguez did an excellent job heading the Indian Vil-lage there. Many people learned about native American culture and also learned more about our order. The display was so busy that we ran out of t-shirts an hour before we closed. Thank you Kyle Senzig for running a great Indian Village.
Recently, the O-Shot-Caw Lodge Banquet was held on March 2-4 at the Heron Preserve in Markham Park. Congratulations to all members whom sealed their ties in Brotherhood on Friday night. I would like to thank all instructors that made the seminars successful and informative, and thank you to all the chapters for amazing spirit shown. I am also very happy to congratulate our newest brothers who were selected for the Vigil Honor: Gabe Guttierez, Chris Alvarez, Andrew Crowe, Jonathan McEwan, Andres Badel, and Frank Gamez. These are real leaders in ser-vice to our lodge. Congratulations!
One of the most fun events of the year is the 2012 Section Confer-ence! The event is to be held at Wallwood Scout Reservation on April 20-22, 2012. This is an opportunity for O-Shot-Caw to prove we are still the best. We will remind Section S4 who O-Shot-Caw is!
