Gator Grind Build #1 - A GREAT Success!

Thirty five brothers and 11 non members joined together on a hot, sunny day at beautiful Camp Tanah Keeta under the direction of Ryan W to start building the grand obstacles for the Inaugural TK Gator Grind. We lugged, drilled, hammered, drilled and sweated and built several components including incline walls and giant tire cargo nets. It was a blast. Please be sure to join as at the next build date, which will be announced soon.

Section Leadership Summit - Early Bird Registration 10/14

EARLY BIRD deadline is October 14th, cost is $36.50. After this the price goes to $46.50.

This event takes place at Camp Wallwood in Quincy Florida (near Tallahassee) on November 6-8th. Section Leader Summit offers a ton of training classes on a variety of subject. There will be something for everyone and an emphasis on AIA topics.

THIS IS A LONG DRIVE - we will leave Friday morning early and get home LATE Sunday. Plan accordingly.

NOW - different this year. We are not charging any meal fees or gas fees. These will be settled up with each driver.  Also drivers will be assigned based on who signs up.  Plan on about $20 per person for gas to be paid to the driver and money for lunch and dinner on the way up and lunch on the way back.

OA Unit of Excellence Awards

The Order of the Arrow Unit of Excellence Award seeks to identify those units, and the leaders within them, who excel at incorporating the OA into their annual planning. This award is intended to provide a tool for lodges to recognize, incentivize, and operationalize unit-level participation in Order of the Arrow programs. Units and Leaders completing the requirements are awarded recognition on both the National (ribbon / patch) and local (Lodge recognition) level. Details about the award can be found HERE.
