Nominations for the 2015 Vigil Honor Class
Sunday, 08 February 2015 11:09
vigilhonortriangleMy fellow brothers in the Wimachtendienk W. W., it is with great pleasure I announce the beginning of the search for the 2015 T'Kope Kwiskwis Vigil Honor Class. This process over the next few months will allow you, the members of the lodge, to nominate eligible candidates for consideration by our committee.

The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position or office to one or more of the following: the T'Kope Kwiskwis Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or our Council's Camps. Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation.

Recommendation letters to the committee must be typed, explain how the member has contributed to one or more of the four areas listed above, and why you think that person deserves the highest recognition that our Order can bestow. All recommendation letters must be turned into the Council's Scout Office by April 1st, 2015. Although it is not required, please include your name and contact information on the recommendation letter so we might contact you if we have any questions or seek further input. If you can please include English suggestions of an appropriate and honorable Vigil name for the nominee so the committee might make better and more enlightened decisions when bestowing names upon the new Vigil class. If you are a Vigil Honor member please note if you would be willing to sponsor the candidate at the time of their Vigil.

To be eligible, an Arrowman must have been a Brotherhood member for at least two years. The names of those brothers who are eligible are available on the password-protected member-only area of our website. (Click Here) Please nominate anyone and everyone you feel deserves this distinction. The Vigil honor committee will not consider the number of nomination letters any candidate receives in its decisions and considers every eligible member, regardless of receiving a nomination. Only those brothers whose dues are in good standing can be considered for the Vigil Honor.

Please take the time to write the committee so that those who have served might be recognized.

2015nleeCongratulations to one of T'kope's own.

Nathan Lee, most recently Section W-1N Chief was just elected Western Region Chief. There are only four regions in the country and the region chiefs support the National Chief and Vice Chief.

In OA history there have only been two Region Chiefs elected from our Section and Nathan is the first from our Lodge. Nathan lives in the Kirkland area and is a member of Talapus Tillicum. This is a huge honor for Nathan and for our Lodge as well.

Again, our congratulations to Nathan, we are very proud of you our brother!

Canoe/Carving Shed Update
Monday, 08 December 2014 10:40

canoe_shed_3_2After receiving the very generous gift of a Haida style canoe, it has been our intention to build a shed to store and display it. This building will also be used for an onsite carving shed, with the intention of giving Chapters and or individual Arrowmen a dry place to work on Totem Poles. As you can see by the attached photos construction is well under way and should be complete in a month or so.

Normally this type of project might be weather dependent, but as you can see from the photos, a little inclement weather did not deter our hardy crew of carpenters. Many thanks to Bob M., Dave M., Rob L., Matthew K., Briggs H., Torin B., Kelly and Mike G. Please stop up at the Longhouse next time you are at camp and take a look.

NOAC Patch Design
Friday, 07 November 2014 10:36

We are in need of some patch designs. We need at least three patches to help us commemorate the 100th anniversary of the OA.
The first patch is to be our 100th Anniversary Patch. We have been asked to include the Centennial Totem as part of the design. It can be a big noticeable part of the design or it can be small or subtle. These are the Centennial Totem:

oa_100_full_color_totem

oa_100_oa_100_one_color_totem

 

 

 

 

The second patch is our NOAC contingent patch
The third patch is our two piece NOAC contingent patch.
If you would like, you can also submit designs for pins, additional patches, hats or anything else related to NOAC.

All of these patches will be available for purchase to all lodge members.

This example is from Nisqually Lodge, our immediate neighbonisquallyr to the south. We need to come up with a better patch set than anyone else, especially Nisqually.

Please submit patch designs by December 31 to your chapter chief, lodge chief or email them to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . so that the lodge and chapter officers can vote on them.
