17th LEC News
. Conclave is next weekend. Bring tents. Be at Camp
Osborn Friday at 3:30 pm as the bus leaves at 4:00 pm exactly. (Yes, you will
be left behind if you are late, ask Ernest Ausby if you have any doubts.)
. If you did not get a letter with what to bring email Sam
Thompson for a list. This probably also means your money was
lost at the scout office and Sam needs to check.
. We have between 32 and 35 brothers going with us to Conclave.
. The very next weekend after Conclave is the Council camporee at
Camp Osborn. At the
request of the Council, the lodge is running the 'chuck wagon' from 11-2
for hamburgers and hot dogs and from 2 to 4 for drinks and
snacks. As those of you who helped two years ago will
remember we cooked in knee deep water due to the heaviest rainfall at
Camp Osborn in years. We expect dryer weather this year. If you can help let Jason
Adams know. Even if you are going with your troop you can get
away for an hour or two to help the lodge and the council.
. Sam promises to have the Winter Pow Wow patches for those who
attended to give out at the conclave. If you attended the Winter
Pow Wow and don't get one remind Sam.
from the March 6th, 2004 LEC:
There will be a brotherhood conversion each week at summer camp this
year. If you went through the Ordeal in 2003 you will be eligible
to become brotherhood at that time.
The lodge will return to a fall and spring ordeal. The fall ordeal
for 2004 will be in late September or early October. Sam Thompson
will find a date in coordination with the council calendar.
The Winter Pow Wow will return to the last weekend in January for 2005.
We have 32 members registered to attend Conclave in April. We will
be taking the Troop 21 bus which will leave from Camp Osborn. More
information will be sent later.

Adams our Lodge Chief will be on staff. NOAC 2006 will be at Michigan
July 29 to
August 6, 2006
. There will be no NOAC in 2008 as it has been moved to 2009.
Several years ago BSA voted to move the Jamboree which normally
would have been held in 2009 to 2010 which is the 100th
anniversary of scouting. 2010
was also a NOAC year. 2015
is also the 100th anniversary of the OA.
Last year the National Committee of the Order of the Arrow voted
to move the 2008 NOAC to 2009 to put the NOACs in sync with the changed
Jamboree (to 2010) and because it will put a NOAC in 2015 which is the 100th
anniversary of the OA.
The next LEC will be April 4th at 3:00 at Camp Osborn.
