Camporees: A Great Place for Brotherhood!
Tuesday, 09 June 2009 13:21

bh_hood_burk_smallWe would like to thank those chapters that held their own brotherhood ceremony at their spring camporees this year. Members from three chapters had the opportunity and to seal their membership in the order by attending these convenient Brotherhood ceremonies. Way to go Sahaptin Mox Khan'-nice, Mox Kar-Po, and Sunyakwa!  We made our Brotherhood goal for Quality Lodge 2009 in large part thanks to these three chapters.

We also wish to congratulate those lodge members who went through their Brotherhood at those camporees in the month of May!

2010 National Jamboree Waiting List
Saturday, 30 May 2009 13:43

There is still space for 10-15 additional youth participants to be on the waiting list of Chief Seattle Council's contingent to attend the 2010 National Jamboree at Fort AP Hill, Virginia, July 19 to August 3, 2010.  If you are interested, or know someone who might be, there is still time to sign up.  The waiting list serves to replace scouts who need to drop for various reasons.

Join the Chief Seattle Council and 35,000 Scouts and Scouters in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America at the 2010 National Jamboree. Our council contingent will consist of 5 troops of 36 boys each. This jamboree will most likely be the highlight of a Scouting career for those scouts and adults who attend.

Toby Capps to Receive Distinguished Service Award
Saturday, 30 May 2009 13:24

Toby-Capps-DSAToby D. Capps of Renton, WA is one of 49 individuals who will be presented the Order of the Arrow's National Distinguished Service Award at the 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference this summer at Indiana University.  Toby is a member of the Hyas Eena chapter (Green River district) of T'Kope Kwiskwis Lodge and Chief Seattle Council, and is also a member of the National OA Committee.  Congratulations, Toby!

The Distinguished Service Award was created in 1940 to honor those who rendered service to the Order beyond the lodge level. The award is presented to those Arrowmen who have rendered distinguished and outstanding service to the Order on a sectional, regional, or national basis. The award is presented every two years during NOAC. Since the time of the first awards were presented, less than 850 Distinguished Service Awards have been presented.

Tuesday, 28 April 2009 18:33

tkwskT'Kope was awarded the section's trophy for outstanding ceremonies teams at last weekend's Section W-1N Conclave at Camp Pigott.

The Ralph Kirschner Trophy was created to honor the memory of the former W-1B Section Adviser. It has been given out since 1987. Originally it was given to the #1 ranked Pre-Ordeal team at the Section Conclave. Recently is has been given to the lodge with the most "Honor" teams at conclave. This last conclave members of the T'Kope Kwiskwis lodge successfully defended their title and won the trophy for the 6th straight time! Congratulations to the ceremonialists who put in many hours of hard work behind the scenes and made this honor possible.
