W3S Conclave Registration will be open until April
25-27, 2014, Camp McConnell in Livingston
(just up the 99) is the place to be. Tah-Heetch will
be offering an incentive to get registered early.
Here is the link to the section page:
Trading Post items have been added, and you can add
to your order at a later date after you register.
The Lodge goal is to bring at least 80 arrowmen! This
will be a $25 conclave (say what?!!)
So, be there or be square!
Update (4/15/14): Lodge registration is now over 53!!
The cost just went up $5, but it is still a historic
low and you can still get the $10 rebate from the
lodge! Get registered today! Dont't wait until April
20th, when the price goes up to $50!
for 2014 Should be Paid by 12-31
All past and present
members of the OA should pay their dues for 2014 as
soon as possible.
They are still $12 (no price increase!)
You can also be an Early Falcon by paying $100 and
be paid and registered for all lodge events. The price
includes all patches including the big round issued
at our Fall Fellowship! (It is a $15 savings overall).
You can pay your dues at a Chapter meeting, Lodge
meeting, or at either the Fresno or Visalia Scout
Office. We will try to get a link up to pay online
Please help make sure others in your home unit get
paid up as well. Hoka Hey!

adult to fill that spot.
Congratulations to John! If you are interested in

for OA) for our 100th year! You can be all the stops
will be pulled. Special red sashes for all participants
are already on the menu.
You can get in on it by filling out the form below
and handing it in or mailing it to Jim Lyman, the
Lodge Adviser, as soon as possible. By planning for
it now, you can make it easy to go financially. The
lodge will also kick in some significant support.
There are now over 43 people signed up
to attend NOAC that have paid their $50 deposit, with
another 10 committed to go...that's over 50!! The
lodge has raised over $7000 to assist youth costs,
with much more fundraising to come! There
is no reason in the world not to attend...even if
you think you cannot afford it! Speak with
Lodge Adviser, Jim Lyman, about scholarship opportunities
if you are financially strapped. email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
