Arrowmen,
Once again, we've had two great callouts - One at the camporee, and one at Pappy Elkins Park. I'd like to thank all those Scouts, Scouters, parents and family members who came out in the cold to share this event with the Talahi Chapter.
Let's congratulate those who were called out last night:

Lucas Atayde, Kevin Babcock, Conor Caloway, Andrew Dunn, Taylor Flatbush, Nicholas Gibson, Nathan Holm, Matthew Hudspeth, Ethan Jones, T.J. Kirby, Garrison Locke, Patrick Malloy, Austin Meyer, Nicholas Michael, Mathew Morino, Nick Mosher, Josh Moyers, Christian Plaue, Skyler Roe, Peter Scott, Colin Shelton, Cale Sherrod, Alex Singleton, Ian Spalding, Alec Suggs, Isaiah Taylor, Nathan Toland, Zach Wagner, Spencer Warren, Josh Zaleski, Jana Gibson, David Gladbach, Thomas Hudspeth, Gus Moreno, Jimmy Oliver, Jeffrey Scott, Jennifer Warren

Let's encourage them to complete the process of becoming Arrowmen by attending one of the Ordeal weekends scheduled this year.  The first two are May 3-5 at Sid Richardson, and May 16-18 at Camp Talahi.
Again, congratulations to those candidates!
Gary Faletti

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 Chapter meeting tomorrow night at the Elks Lodge.
Thank you for your understanding.
Yours in Brotherhood,
Gary Faletti
Talahi Chapter Adviser

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 floats and congratulate our new Brotherhood members and everyone else who has earned their Brotherhood.  And those who have not yet earned their Brotherhood can have a float in anticipation of their earning their Brotherhood.  The chapter officers and I would like to invite all Arrowmen to attend our meeting.   If you're a regular attendee, it will be great to see you again.  If you haven't been to a meeting in a while, please come and reconnect with the Order of the Arrow - we've missed you!
Yours in Brotherhood,
Gary Faletti
Talahi Chapter Adviser

Camporee - Brotherhood Q&A [1 Attachment]

Brothers,
don't forget that there will be an OA callout at the Camporee this weekend.  Remember to bring your sash.  If you're unable to make the Camporee there will be another callout at Pappy Elkins Park on Monday, April 14, at 7pm.
Also, if you're interested in doing your Brotherhood and sealing your membership in the OA, there will be a Brotherhood opportunity at the Camporee.  I've attached the BH Q&A sheet to this email.
Hope to see you there.
Yours in Brotherhood,
Gary Faletti
Talahi Chapter Adviser
