2019 January Chiefly Speaking

Dear brothers,

On behalf of the lodge officers and lodge advisers, we want to wish you a very happy new year!

Our great O-Shot-Caw lodge was blessed to have a wonderful 2018. From winning so many competitions at Section Conference, to being national champions in multiple categories at NOAC, to an eventful Haunted Forest, and to all our events, we were successful in everything that we did, and we had great fun doing them. It was an amazing and unforgettable year for O-Shot-Caw.

I hope to carry that momentum from 2018 into 2019. I have very high hopes for this year as there will be many opportunities give service, get active, and have fun! As you may or may not know, in February, the Order of the Arrow will start allowing Venture Crews and Sea Scout Ships to have elections. So, to be proactive inthis historic happening, we have created a special ordeal called the Spring Ordeal, which is open to everyone. This will happen on March 8-10 at Camp Elmore. We are all very excited aboutthis great opportunity.

Also, with the new year, I encourage you all to pay your dues if you have not already! You must pay your dues if you want to attend our events. So pay your dues soon!

2019 will be a great year, hopefully even better than last! As your chief, I want to help you to have an exceptional year. So please, if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me, any of the officers, or the lodge advisers. We are here to help you in any way we can. We are also here to help you to have as much fun as possible!

Thank you always for your tremendous and unending cheerful service! Happy New Year!

Yours in brotherhood,


Keanu O. | Lodge Chief
