We Are Still A Lodge!
Tuesday, 24 January 2017 14:09

second try

It'€™s official! The Lodge still exists! At the January Lodge Officer'ƒ€™s Meeting Lodge Chief Murphy Bush presented the certificate stating not only are we chartered, but also, because of our thousands of hours of service to the council, our careful budgeting, and our numerous members, we received Bronze level for Journey to Excellence, meaning we are eligible to apply for and receive service grants, allowing for even more cheerful service down the road.

Thank you to everyone who made it possible by paying your dues, giving cheerful service, and helping to induct new members into our great lodge. We couldn't have done it without you.

Totem Pole Service Project
Sunday, 08 January 2017 16:20

On December 31st, members from our lodge braved the frigid morning to travel to our Longhouse to begin the work of restoring several of our lodge totem poles. Through the decades these totem poles have been battered by the pacific northwest weather and will require months of work to restore back to their original state. They’ll be stored in the canoe shed so next time you’re visiting the longhouse for an OA event, go check them out! Otherwise, big thank you to everyone who came that weekend and gave service.Pole1 Pole2

Annual Recognition Banquet
Tuesday, 08 November 2016 13:25

On a dark and stormy night in October over 100 Arrowmen, family and friends gathered at the Annual Order of the Arrow Recognition Banquet.

Trent A., 2015-16 Lodge Chief, inducted the new officers and was thanked by Torin Bergsma for his service. Nathan Lee, the stand in Keynote Speaker, gave an inspirational speech on his life as an Arrowman. After inductions and service recognition by the respective vice-chiefs the 2016 Vigil Honor class was recognized.

Then the moment when we tried to guess who was being described as the James E. West Fellowship and the Founder’s Awards were presented.

Please join me in congratulating:

Austin Springman – James E. West Fellowship Award
Nathan Lee and Bob Meneghini – Founders Award


The Founder's Award was created in 1981 by the National Order of the Arrow Committee to honor and recognize those Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to their lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates to his fellow Arrowmen that he memorializes in his everyday life the spirit of achievement as described by OA's founders E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson.

While the Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction, the Founders Award is used to recognize those Arrowmen, youth and adult, who have impacted the Lodge in a positive and lasting way. This is a rare and distinguished honor, to recognize the spirit of our Founders in another.

Fall Rally THIS Weekend!!
Tuesday, 08 November 2016 12:28


conclave2010a001If you are looking to get trained in conducting Unit Elections (which you need if you want to host Unit Elections for Troops) or get your Brotherhood Honor, you should look at coming down to Fall Rally!

On Friday, November 11th, Fall Rally is hosting both Unit Elections Training and a Brotherhood Ceremony for all those Arrowmen looking to get either or both done! They will be hosted in the Camp Pigott Dining Hall, so arrive by 7:30 pm for the Unit Elections Training, and by 9 pm for the Brotherhood Ceremony.

And for all you folks across the water who can't make 7:30 for the Unit Elections Training, don't worry! We have another one Saturday morning to make sure that you get trained!

You don't need to be registered to take either the training, or participate in the Brotherhood Ceremony. Both are open to drop-ins. Register online if you plan to enjoy the other joys of Fall Rally!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

National Public Lands Day
Friday, 07 October 2016 13:02

By Reidar Kelstrup, Service Vice Chief

Klahowya Brothers,

For the past two months, you have all been subject to my incessant badgering about National Public Lands Day; therefore, it is only right that I inform you as to how it went.

We conducted two service projects on September 24th, one from 9:00-12:00 at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center in Port Angeles, and another from 10:00-1:00 at the Newhalem Campground of North Cascades National Park. This was a wonderful opportunity to fulfill our obligation to cheerful service and give back to the National Park Service who has so faithfully preserved America's natural treasures for exactly 100 years.

In North Cascades, we cleaned out fire pits and picked up trash in loop A of the campsite (upholding the park's reputation as having the cleanest campsites in Washington State), and in Olympic, we deconstructed a ruined amphitheater by tearing out old benches, made new benches to replace the old and torn down ones, and helped clear brush encroaching on the trails and drainage systems. Members of the WTA and other organizations were also present at Olympic National Park and helped with the projects. Park rangers in both parks were very impressed with the cheerful service, and would be glad to work with us again.

On top of this, both parks were presented with thank you gifts for their service in the form of lodge neckerchiefs affixed to boards signed by all arrowmen in attendance. This too was received very well.

Unfortunately, only four of our brothers (Jacob G, Patrick Rendt, Logan G, and Aaron Tate) turned out to serve at Olympic National Park and only myself turned out for North Cascades. It is my sincerest hope that we make stronger our commitment to service in the future. I will be working with the chapters nearest to these parks to conduct service projects for them over the coming year.

I must give a heartfelt thanks to Patrick Rendt and Jacob G for leading the Olympic operation, my advisor Dwight Thompson for his guidance, and the volunteer coordinators at both parks--Jason Bordelon for North Cascades and Heather Stephens at Olympic--for their work and generosity.

Written by Murphy B

T'Kope Kwiskwis Lodge Chief

In the very recent past some members of our lodge made the journey to Alaska for the 2016 Conclave! This annual event brings together the five lodges of Section W-1N for a weekend of training, brotherhood and fellowship. From this event, our very own Levi C was elected as Section Vice-Chief, one of the three section officers elected each year! As one of the three section officers, Levi will begin to plan out the 2017 Conclave, which will be hosted by our lodge at Camp Pigott!
