On August 27, our lodge will be hosting a work weekend at camp Josepho to prepare the camp for its 75th anniversary this September. We will be repairing the Camp Josepho entrance sign, inspecting the exterior and interior of the lodge, and making the camp look nice. It will begin at 9am and we hope to be finished by 3pm.

These service hours will be put towards the  Arrowman Service Award.

If you are available to attend please let your chapter chiefs and advisors know.

 

It is time for the W4N Section Conclave! For those who have never been to a Conclave, it is a gathering of Lodges in the Section for fun, fellowship, training and competition. Last year we had just over 100 members of the Lodge attend; our goal was 100 in honor of our Centennial Celebration. This year we will be welcoming a new Lodge to our section, with the merger of two local BSA councils, the Lodges have merged. Our goal should be at least 15% of our Lodge, that would be 92 members. We have a long way to go.

This year’s conclave is at Camp Three Falls, just north of us.

The cost is $45.00 per General Member or $35.00 per New Ordeal Member if you received your Ordeal Membership this past year August 1, 2015 thru September 10, 2016.

You can register at www.sectionw4n.org.

A special website where you can pre-order trading post items is also available at https://squareup.com/market/siwinis-lodge-bsa.

Please make sure you bring a copy of your current medical form, Parts A and B (C is optional).

We hope you attend and represent Malibu Lodge!

11826049_870471639716030_3497053154911107307_nDuring the first week of August about 17,000 Arrowmen gathered at Michigan State University to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow and reflect on its history as well as prepare for its future. The week was filled with fun and excitement for everyone, from the new Arrowmen to the those who stood before the four principals many years ago. Over the course of the conference Arrowmen had the opportunity to learn a variety of skills from how to run an effective ordeal to how to make a roach and everything in between.

Almost every night Arrowmen were inspired at one of the  shows put on by the incredible shows staff made up of youth from across the country. The Breslin Center (Michigan States basketball stadium) was packed to full capacity every show, making for a truly awe inspiring sight. Alex Call, the 2015 national Chief of the Order of the Arrow issued a challenge to the Arrowmen in attendance as well as  those who were not. They were challenged to #daretodo in the 100 days following the conference. Each Arrowmen pledged to do one act of service per day, to change the world. At the conference those in attendance also had the unique opportunity to meet those holding the highest positions in Scouting, the OA, and in the business world. From the key 3 of Scouting to the CEO of ExxonMobil and even an Astronaut, all Eagle Scouts and Arrowmen.11870874_870465623049965_2622580967094922797_n

Arrowmen left the conference inspired, tired, and ready for the next 100 years of the Order of the Arrow.
