T’Kope Places Third in National Competition!
Friday, 07 August 2015 21:35

This last week, teams from all over the world competed to prove they had the best Pre-Ordeal ceremony during the 100 hour long National Order of the Arrow Conference (or NOAC). Once again T’Kope Kwiskwis has proved that our
ceremonialists are amongst the very best in the nation.

Tkope Places third

Our team took 3rd place nationwide for their presentation of the Pre-Ordeal ceremony. Four lodge officers; Trent A, Lodge Chief and Alowat Sakima, Jacob T, Inductions Vice-Chief and Meteu, Matthew R, Activities Vice-Chief and Nutiket and finally Mitchell N, Treasurer and Kichkinet have been working very hard for months preparing for the competition and each deserve a hearty congratulations for their dedication and extraordinary accomplishment!

Additionally, every member of our Pre-Ordeal team received national honors, with our Lodge Chief earning his second national honors for his presentation of the vigil ceremony. How Mighty is the Silver Marmot!

 
Introducing our newest Lodge Officer:
Friday, 07 August 2015 21:23

 Mitchell N has taken over the position of Lodge Treasurer.
 As a NYLT staffer and former Conclave Vice-Chief, we are very lucky to have his
 leadership as our Order enters its second century. 

 
Spring Fellowship in review
Friday, 07 August 2015 21:19
In June, our lodge gathered for our Spring Fellowship and hosted the national roadshow; Arrowtour. Joined by our northern brothers in Skihs Mox Lamonti, we had a magnificent time bonding in brotherhood as we learned more about our story in the Order of the Arrow.
At the event, we hosted our very first Marmot Race, a relay race designed to test the teamwork and physical prowess of each chapter. After a very close finish, chapter Mox Kar Po took first place setting the standard for future chapters to earn the chance to boast.
Our lodge even had the honor of hosting both National OA Chief Alex Call and Western Region Chief Nathan Lee during our ArrowTour event. It will certainly be challenging to top the level of excitement and festivities in the years to come!

Legacy Service Project Completed!
Monday, 08 June 2015 11:42

On May 8-9 a merry band of wood butchers participated in our first Legacy Service Project. The chosen project was to rebuild the cook shelter on the back of the Buck Mountain Cabin at Camp Shepard. Originally scheduled to take two weekends, this hearty group of intrepid nail benders was able to demolish the existing shelter and complete the new structure on the first weekend. The Lodge partnered with the council to share the costs of materials. This shelter will provide the campers at this cabin a dry, safe area to cook or have a small campfire on those winter camp weekends.
We hope this is the start of a long list of Legacy Service Projects our brothers provide to the council.

Many thanks to our great volunteers.

The Centurion Award
Thursday, 07 May 2015 18:48

For nearly 100 years, the Order of the Arrow has purposefully recognized Scocenturionawarduts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. Therefore, our organization’s centennial provides a unique opportunity to commemorate those among us who are exemplars of the “high ideals and purpose of the Order of the Arrow.” The Centurion Award aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or Arrowmen who have meaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, inspired others to follow in their footsteps.


Each Lodge in the country is allowed to choose a very select few individuals to receive this once in a lifetime recognition. They may be selected from any period of the Lodge’s history. In the case of T’kope Kwiskwis that is 61 years. They can either be recognized for their service as a youth or an adult, with a final mix of more youth than adults. They may be living or deceased. Recipients from our Lodge cover our first Lodge Chief to more contemporary members, all are currently living. All have made significant and lasting contributions to the benefit of our Lodge.

The recipient’s from T’Kope Kwiskwis are:

Case A. Barden William Flodman Mike Gaylord
Henry Ken Hayashi Joyce A. Johnson Matthew D. Kahn
Mike Kelly Del Loder Jason Stewart

These recipients will be recognized at the 2015 NOAC and locally at the ArrowTour event June 27th at Camp Pigott. You will also be able to visit a digital publication on the national website, describing their contributions.
We thank and congratulate all of these Cheerful Servants; they truly are the ones that came before.
