As I am sure many of you have been waiting for, here is the link to NOAC registration as promised. At midnight, registration will open and the link will work for you to sign up.
We would love to see many of you sign up, but here are a few reminders:
1. The total cost of NOAC will be $850.
2. A $100 deposit will be required to reserve your spot.
3. Adults that register will be expected to drive a portion of the youth to the event, they will of course will be reimbursed for this.
4. 3 of the 12 youth that sign up will be asked by Carter Harwell to serve in a leadership capacity and help lead the contingent. One of these positions will be NOAC chairmen, and he will have 2 vice chairmen to help him.
5. 1 of the adults will be expected to serve in the role of NOAC advisor. This person will be determined later on, but this position will require intensive planning to prep the contingent for NOAC.
Our advice to all of you, register soon! These slots will NOT be around for much longer as there are only 12 youth slots and 4 adult slots available. If you are interested, don’t wait around until they are all gone! If registration is already closed by the time you try to register, please email Mr Reeder at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will add your name to the wait list.
We look forward to seeing the amazing group of young (and slightly less young arrowmen) that we will send to this event next year! In my personal opinion, this is not an event to miss!
Hello fellow Bob White Lodge members!
2017 Dixie is fast approaching. For any of you who may not know, Dixie is an event held every year, where the multiple lodges in our section meet together for a weekend of competitions, seminars, fellowship, patch trading and much more. You do not want to miss out on this amazing opportunity to attend Camp Barstow in South Carolina for an unforgettable weekend of fun. It will be from April the 28-30. Early bird registration is $55 and is open now through the 4th of April. Late registration will be $65 and closes on the 14th of April. You can register online or at the scout office. Go ahead and get excited, because this year’s Bob White theme is Bob the Builder. We will have great patches as always and I look forward to seeing you all there! You can register online using this link: 2017 Dixie Registration You can also register using the Dixie Registration form found under the “Register” tab of this website.

Arrowmen, as we are moving into a new year, the lodge will be transitioning from the 2016 Lodge Executive Committee (LEC), to a new LEC for 2017. We are looking for both youth and adults that are willing to serve the lodge in a higher capacity. Even if you are not personally interested in this opportunity, we ask that you forward it to other members of the lodge that you think would be good candidates for out leadership team. This is your opportunity to step up to the plate and take on a role of leadership! Please do not be afraid to show interest, and we always have room for people that are willing to help. Simply click on the link at the bottom of this post and fill it out to be considered for a leadership position. Whether you would like to serve to OA in higher capacity, or would just like to get more involved with the lodge, this is a marvelous way to start. We do not require any previous experience or length of time in the OA, only a cheerful spirit and a willingness to learn. Again, we encourage absolutely anyone to submit an application, and you can fill out the form in just moments. We look forward to hearing back from you and you can expect to be contacted by someone in lodge leadership shortly after submitting your form.
As the year is coming to a close, so is our lodge officer’s terms. We would like to take a second to thank all of the current officers for their service, and welcome in the new officers.
For the year of 2016, your elected youth officials were:
Lodge Chief: Jacob Neville
VC of Admin: Joe Neely
VC of Inductions: Carter C. Harwell
VC of Program: Parker Powell
We would like to thank these individuals, and everyone in a lodge leadership position for all of their hard work to make the year of a 2016 a successful one.
For the year of 2017, your elected youth officials will be:
Lodge Chief: Carter C. Harwell
VC of Admin: Parker Powell
VC of Inductions: Nicholas Koenig
VC of Program: Jacob Neville
We hope that you will wish these people a warm welcome and support them in any way possible. They will officially take office on January 1st, and their terms will end on December 31st of 2017. Besides new youth officers, Bob White will also be receiving a new lodge advisor. We would like to extend a very special thanks to Mr. Steve Kerr, the current lodge advisor, for the years of hard work that he has poured into the lodge. We cannot thank him enough for all of his service to the lodge. With that being said, we would like for everyone to welcome in the new 2017 lodge advisor, Mr. Robert Reeder. Mr. Reeder will officially become the advisor on January 1st. We look forward to seeing what this new team of individuals will accomplish in 2017, and we hope that you will give them your full support.
