Winterfest 2017

A long time ago, on a lodge fellowship weekend far, far away…

Arrow Wars

Episode LVII

2017 WINTERFEST

The arrowmen of this lodge will come together on January 20-22 for a weekend of fun and fellowship. There will be exciting games, amazing food, exquisite patches, and many opportunities to meet fellow arrowmen. Join these arrowmen in training sessions and learning about upcoming events such as Conclave.

Stick around for the Executive Committee meeting on Sunday after breakfast to help decide the future of our lodge, and, as youth members of the lodge, you will get to vote on what the conclave patch and shirt will look like. Arrowmen must be in attendance to receive the weekend patch! So remember to sign up and to let all your fellow arrowmen know to sign up as well.

Allohak Menewi Annual Pass

Lodge members who are faithful attendees at lodge events now have the opportunity to get five lodge events for the price of four thanks to the Allohak Menewi Annual Pass!  For $80.00 Annual Pass holders pay for the following events:

  • Camp Seph Mack Ordeal Weekend - April
  • Twin Echo Vigil Weekend – May
  • Heritage Ordeal Weekend – May
  • Camp Seph Mack Puma Games – August
  • Heritage Ordeal Weekend – September

Normally, this would cost you $100.00.  Upon purchasing an Annual Pass, a ticket to each event will be mailed that will need to be presented during event check in. Annual Passes must be purchased by April 1.

Annual Pass Terms & Conditions:

  1. Purchase of an Annual Pass does not constitute automatic registration for each covered event.  Purchasers will still need to register for each event individually using the Annual Pass option so an accurate participant count can be determined for meals and other event activities.
  2. Annual Pass only covers the base event (member) cost of $20 for each event.  Extras such as converting to Brotherhood ($20.00) or attending the Vigil Breakfast ($5.00 for Vigil Honor members only) are not covered and must be paid at event registration.
  3. No refunds will be issued once purchased even if an Annual Pass holder cannot attend all listed events. Thank you for your donation to the lodge!

2017 Conclave Logo

Conclave 2017 “Building Blocks of Brotherhood”, Section NE-4B

Where: Camp Conestoga

Who: Hosted by Wagion Lodge #6 but the other lodges in the section will be there

When: June 9-11 2016.

How Much: The cost of  Conclave  is still to be determined 

Conclave is fun for all ages young or old.  The theme for 2017 Conclave is “Building Blocks of Brotherhood.” Conclave is an extremely important event for all the lodges in our section. There will be training cells hosted by each lodge and many exciting events including lodge vs. lodge competitions. Of course the section’s Cub-Clave will be occurring. More information about Conclave will be released in the months to come, but most importantly our lodge needs its lodge flap and t-shirt designs picked, so the youth will be voting on the designs at Winterfest, both youth and adult members can submit designs.

The theme again is “Building Blocks of Brotherhood,” a spinoff of Lego, keep this in mind when designing patches and t-shirts!!!!

Designs will need to be submitted prior to the January 20th EC meeting vote at Winterfest!!!

Put your ideas on paper and submit to Conclave Adviser John Nichols at jcnichs@gmail.com  or lodge Adviser Evan Erickson at evankerickson@yahoo.com Prior to January 20, 2017.
