Greetings brothers! Coming soon on July 3rd at Camp Barstow, Muscogee Lodge will host the SR-5 ArrowTour stop. This is an event you do not want to miss! Please work out a carpooling plan with your unit or Chapter to go down to the event.
Remember that ANYONE can attend – it is not limited to OA brothers. Here is the official announcement from Muscogee Lodge:
“The Indian Waters Council is excited to announce it will celebrate the Order of the Arrow’s centennial as an ArrowTour host. ArrowTour is an interactive event for Scouts, volunteers, and Scouting alumni that will travel throughout the country during the summer of 2015. The tour will make a stop on July 3, 2015 at Camp Barstow! This will be the only stop in South Carolina and much of SR-5!
The purpose of the tour is to commemorate the Order of the Arrow’s 100th anniversary. During the event, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the Order of the Arrow, its story, and its future. Some of the program highlights include interactive exhibits, activities such as silk-screening and branding, and challenge games. Participants will have a chance to meet some of the Order’s national leaders, and alumni can learn about the Scouting Alumni Association and local alumni efforts to supporting Scouting in our area.
An exclusive ArrowTour Trading Post will carry ArrowTour and OA centennial merchandise. The Order of the Arrow will split the trading post proceeds with the Indian Waters Council. The program will conclude with a special show that recognizes the Order’s rich history and empowers participants to help shape the organization’s future. The Order of the Arrow is creating a truly unique and interactive experience for all Scouts, volunteers, and Scouting alumni.
An official schedule of events will be posted to our website as soon as it is available(mu scogeelodge.org). Feel free to arrive at Camp Barstow on July 2nd (after 6pm) to camp and ease travel concerns on July 3rd. It will only cost $2.00 per person to camp overnight on July 2nd. We will kick things off at 3:00 PM on July 3 with the closing show beginning at 8:00 PM. All lodges planning to come are asked to bring a 10×10 pop up tent and lodge display that highlights their lodges history. Muscogee Lodge is also looking for volunteers to help with preparation on July 2nd and take down on July 4th. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any special questions about this event.
