There is no cost for any arrowmen to attend. However, money is recommended as we may head into town before the induction weekend begins around 6 pm. Please register for the event by December 1 so we know how many to expect.

Candidate Letter & Packing List

Information For New Candidates

 

The brothers of the Ta To Ka Dan Chapter are once again inviting you to our “ANNUAL TURKEY SHOOT” to all Arrowmen in the Malibu Lodge.

They will be hosting a Brotherhood Ceremony, to which all Brotherhood Candidates in the Malibu Lodge are invited.  Our “Award Winning Brotherhood Ceremony Team”, from the Achoicominga Chapter, is scheduled to conduct the ceremony.

DATE-  November 12, 2016
WHERE-  Tweedy Lake Resort (24303 Pine Canyon Rd, Lake Hughes, CA 93532)
TIME-  8:30AM (meet to caravan into resort), will end approximately 2:00 PM
MEETING PLACE-  The entrance to the resort has a gate which is always locked, so meet on Pine Canyon Road, at the dirt road leading to the resort (see above address).

SHOOTING-  Clay pigeon shooting (12 gauge shotguns), WooHoo, MAJOR FUN!!!!!!!

FOOD!

The “Feasting Committee” has planned to cook “Deep Fried Turkeys”, which will be ready for SERIOUS FEASTING, at lunch time.  If you have never tried Deep Fried Turkey before, you are in for a mind blowing experience.  More than 12 hours before cooking, the turkey is rubbed with incredibly flavorful spices on the outside, which after it is fried, makes the skin so yummy that most of it never gets to the carving stage (gets picked at/ stolen/ etc. very quickly).  The turkey is also injected, deep into the meat, with a garlic & herb marinade.  The frying process seals the juices in, immediately, so it will be the juiciest turkey you will ever have had.

The balance of the FEAST be provided “pot luck style”. Please bring something.

We really need to have a good idea as to how many will be in attendance, specifically-

How many Brotherhood Candidates will be in attendance (please pay for sash on double-knot site), AND, How many mouths to feed (no fees to pay when registering on double-knot).

Please take the time to register ASAP, so proper plans can be made.

If you think you have what it takes to partake in running the lodge or want to see the 2017 officers get elected then come on down! We are very happy to be introducing a new lodge office to our Lodge Executive Committee: the 3rd Vice Lodge Chief. In the following email, I will discuss the responsibilities for anyone interested. Lodge Summit will cost $15 per arrowman (includes dinner and breakfast the next morning) and will go from 5 pm – 10 am of the next morning.
