Order of the Arrow

This coming weekend we hold the fourth Ordeal weekend of the year at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch.  We still have many Ordeal candidates who have not gone through their ordeal, so please encourage them to attend.  And don't forget: it's also a Brotherhood opportunity.  If you've been an Ordeal member for more than ten months, go out and complete your Brotherhood and seal your membership in the OA.  Go the Longhorn Council website to register and pay.
The date for the Ordeal is September 19-21 at Sid Richardson.  Again, please encourage your troop's candidates to attend, urge your Ordeal members to do their Brotherhood, and please come out and join us also.  The final Ordeal weekend of the year is scheduled for December 5-7, 2014, at Camp Tahuaya.
Scoutmasters & Leaders: please check with these new members, if they are in your troop, and ask if they have received this email.  If not, please send me their email address so that I can send OA info to them.  Thanks.
Also, and this is very important, at next month's meeting, October 21, 2014 we need to conduct Chapter officer elections.  Please plan to attend.
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, September 16, 2014.   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
