arrowcorps20142Greetings Brothers;
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer weather and are able to spend time with your family and friends. I also hope you have some great summer Scouting Adventures planned for this season as well.
If you do not have ArrowCorps on your calendar, there is still time to sign up. Service to others is at the core of the mission of the Order of the Arrow. What better way to provide public service and have fun than to spend a week in Mt. Rainier National Park or the surrounding National Forest.
You can register on line through the Lodge website at tkopekwiskwis.org. The cost is $250, which covers about everything. Please remember that we also have some Camperships available, everyone should be able to attend. ArrowCorps2014 is open to ALL BSA registered people 14 and above.
Hope to see you at ArrowCorps 2014.

Two-term Lodge Chief Torin and Lodge Adviser Mike.

Spring Fellowship was a blast! From Lodge elections to trying out the new Lodge Canoe, Arrowmen had an amazing time on the weekend of June 20th - 22nd. Some of the events were movies, games, lodge elections, Frisbee golf, ladder ball, the lodge canoe, Marmot Party, the 60th Anniversary Banquet, silent and live auctions, and the 60th anniversary Ceremony held in the Longhouse. The food was amazing and there was always enough to eat, the trading post was filled with great snacks, and the 60th patch looks spectacular.

Lastly, congratulations to all those elected to be the 2014-2015 Lodge Officers and thank you to all who attended.
