This will be the last Ordeal for 2015. If you know anyone who was elected this year ohw has not taken their Ordeal yet make sure they come to this one. If they do not taker their Ordeal now they will loose their eligilbility and they would need to be re-elected again to do it next year.

Come out and help us bring our new members into the Order of the Arrow and Tecumseh Lodge.
This will be a big weekend with plenty to do.
Help will be needed in every area of the Ordeal but mostly we will need Elangomats, Ritual and Kitchen help.
Come out if you can and pitch in.

This could also be a perfect weekend to seal your membership in the Order of the Arrow by completing your Brotherhood.
It's easy to do and there will be plenty of other members therer to help you.
If you took your Ordeal anytime before 2015 you are eligible and should do this.

The Arrowman Service Award

The Arrowman Service Award is an OA patch you can wear on your sash.
2015 is the Order of the Arrow’s 100th anniversary, and every good centennial celebration needs a patch to match.  If you ask me, the OA really knocked its 100th anniversary patch out of the park. It’s the Arrowman Service Award, a patch youth and adult members of the Order of the Arrow can earn and wear on their
OA sash.
The goal is to encourage Arrowmen to recommit themselves to the OA, increase their level of service and participate in the OA’s wide-ranging centennial celebrations. Along with patches issued during the OA’s 50th and 60th anniversaries, this patch is one of just three patches the Order of the Arrow has authorized to be worn on the sash. Yes, on the sash itself. The award may be worn only on the traditional OA sash. You’ll want to sew it so its lower edge sits one-half inch above the upper Brotherhood bar. 
Speaking of, being a Brotherhood member or attaining Brotherhood membership in the OA is one of the primary requirements, though there is an exception for Arrowmen inducted as Ordeal members after Jan. 1, 2015. 
There’s no limit to the number of Arrowman Service Awards that can be given per lodge, provided the lodge’s advisor and staff advisor/Scout executive approve each candidate’s completed requirements.
Arrowmen can work on the requirements from July 16, 2014, until Dec. 31, 2015.
