The Lodge Governing Rules 2017 Revision Ad hoc Committee has proposed two amendments to the Lodge Governing Rules.
The first proposed amendment addresses Lodge officer roles, officer supervision of committees, committee responsibilities, as well as general revisions and clarifications.
The second amendment modifies the Lodge Governing Rules amendment process concerning motions made at LECM. The only changes for this amendment is the addition of Article VI, Section 2 (A) – (B).
The proposed amendments may be seen in these documents:
- Proposed Lodge Governing Rules (changes marked)
- Proposed Lodge Governing Rules (changes unmarked)
- Current Lodge Governing Rules (2014)
All active youth Arrowmen may vote for or against these amendments at the May Ordeal at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch at the Business Meeting on Sunday, May 7th, 2017.
Registration for the Ordeal is available on our Events page
Fellowship is a time for all Arrowmen in the Lodge to come together to experience everything the Order has to offer and celebrate the Order as we begin the year. Your Ordeal is nothing in comparison to what this event offers. Also, if you completed your Ordeal on or before May 2016, then you are eligible to earn Brotherhood at Lodge Fellowship!
This year’s theme is rock & roll; you can expect to see anything from air guitar competitions to guitar hero. If that isn’t your style, then there are many other activities available including:
- Shooting Sports
- Ceremony Competitions
- Lodge Ball (Dodgeball)
- Obstacle Courses
- Air Guitar Competitions
- Guitar Hero Competition
- Earn Brotherhood
- Many more competitions and activities
Registration for Lodge Fellowship as well as all of the Ordeals is now available.
