Honor Flight Spring Schedule

OA Callout

Leaders, Unfortunately, the weather doesn't seem to want to cooperate with us this evening.  There was obviously no way of knowing that the temperature would be this low.   Of course there's never any assurance of the weather; it's spring; so if we delayed the callout it could always rain!   And at this late point, I don't know if I could contact all of the Scoutmasters; the only thing that might be worse than holding the callout with cool temperatures would be for several troops to show up and find out that we've postponed. This is a difficult decision, but I think we just need to go ahead as planned.  Of course, there's no requirement for a callout to do an Ordeal, so if any Scoutmaster feels the weather is too cold to participate you can call your unit mermbers out at one of your meetings within your troop.  If you decide not to participate this evening I'll have candidate packets available for you or your OA Troop Representative to pickup at the OA Cha…

Order of The Arrow

A couple of important notes: 1)  Let's congratulate our candidates who were called out at the camporee:  Josh Davis, Austin Miles, Ethan Tasckenberg, Kebin Kuhlman, and Meaghan Lee 2) Let's also congratulate those who did their Brotherhood at the Camporee: Harrison Bethany, Chandler Jackson, Dustin McNally, and Nick Shepard 3) The second (and last) callout is tomorrow night, Monday, April 14, at Pappy Elkins Park in DWG at 7:00pm.  Let's rememer the old saying: to be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late, to be late is unacceptable.  We want to make sure we're finished by about 8pm since it's a school night.  I'm hoping if we begin at 7 we can make out goal.  Thanks for your cooperation. 3)  As always, the Talahi Chapter meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m., at the Elks Lodge, located at 601 W. Pioneer Pkwy, Arlington, TX 76010.  Our next scheduled meeting is at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, April 15, 2014.   This month, let's have ice cream float…
