In February of 2019, the Lodge Executive Committee voted and approved the artwork design for a new Standard Lodge Flap (S91) for the Bob White Lodge! This flap will replace our long-time standard flap design (S14) as the new image of the lodge. The flap is a reflection of our home at the Robert E. Knox Scout Reservation with the lake’s beautiful sunset in the background on the flap.
As of Sunday, March 17, the S91 Standard Flap design has been approved by a majority vote of the membership of the Bob White Lodge and will officially be available for purchase by dues-paid members during the summer of 2019. To review the addition to the lodge Bylaws, find the update under Article IX (Lodge Memorabilia) Section C.
The Bob White Lodge is excited to announce as December approaches that we will hosting our 2018 OA Winter Fellowship! This is an exciting new event different from our ordeal weekends. This is an event for Arrowmen to come together in fellowship and learn more about our organization. We have many opportunities and activities such as a committee fair, an ultimate frisbee tournament, our 90 minutes of service, Arrowmen Jeopardy, a movie, and an AIA/Dance and Drum demonstration from neighboring lodge Unali’Yi 236! We will also be hosting a fellowship banquet where we will be making announcements for the upcoming year, recognize our 2018 Lodge Leaders, present our 2018 Vigil Honor class and announce our 2019 Dixie theme! We will be offering an opportunity for those eligible to go through their Brotherhood induction. Our first program to kick off the weekend will be an opening campfire program at 8:00 PM.
This will be held at Camp Daniel Marshall from December 7th through the 9th. The cost will be $35 for fellowship and $50 for those doing their Brotherhood induction. Arrowmen can register at the Georgia-Carolina Service Center and Office or they can register online with the link below. This is the final lodge event of the year and we want as many in attendance as possible! All attendees will receive a fellowship event patch upon check-in. Being it will be colder weather throughout the event, be sure to pack accordingly. All attendees will need to provide their own camping equipment (tent/housing). Food for the weekend will be provided from Saturday breakfast to Sunday breakfast, so eat before arriving on Friday evening. Be sure to register today and share with the members of your unit! We look forward to seeing you there in just a few weeks!

As February approaches, we have a couple of events coming up. Next month we will be hosting our annual Lodge Leadership Development (LLD) at the Georgia-Carolina Scout Office on February 17th, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The price is $10 overall, no early bird pricing. You can pay at the scout office or online, which is soon to air.
Another event that is right on our doorstep is Spring Ordeal on March 16-18th. Emails will be sent out to all Brotherhood eligible candidates to remind them of the opportunity. We are also trying to reach out to all Troops in the council’s parameters, so help us out to spread the word. We are looking for elangomats to help out with the weekend; if you are interested, please email our Vice Chief of Inductions Robert Bolton Jr. or the Ordeal Chair Breck Brigham for more information. Their contact information will be down below. You can register for the event at the scout office or at https://www.gacacouncil.org/2018spord
Lastly, we have the annual SR-5 Dixie Conclave on April 27-29th. Our theme will be revealed at the LLD, along with corresponding spirit items and lodge pre-order form. We have reserved 75 slots, so make sure to register soon before it is too late! You can register at the scout office and at https://www.gacacouncil.org/2018OADix

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!

Arrowmen, as the 2016 year comes to a close, we have some wonderful events set to kick off the 2017 year in the best way possible. We highly recommend that any arrowmen, youth or adult, sign up for both of these events. The LLD is an amazing opportunity to gain some valuable leadership skills pertinent to the OA. The banquet is also a great opportunity for anyone able to attend. We will have great food, and lots of good fellowship at both events. For more details, click here or sign up at the Council Office.
