    Fall Fellowship

    The first ever themed Fall Fellowship was held last weekend. Friday evening kicked off with a tailgate-style cracker barrel, complete with trucks, canopies, and good food. The shotgun and rifle ranges, along with the zipline, opened Saturday morning, and chapter members competed to get the most signatures from each area. Lodge elections were held after lunch. Your 2015 Lodge officers are: Nathan Vick, Lodge Chief; Sebastian Torres, Vice Chief of Service; Colin Stapleton, Vice Chief of Brotherhood; and Ben Gilbert, Treasurer. No secretary was elected, so if you are interested in the position, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Following elections were Quest games, including the spam toss, Ultimate Frisbee games, football, and a camp-wide game of Capture the Flag. After dinner, seven Arrowmen sealed their membership in the Order by converting to Brotherhood. After the Brotherhood ceremony was a tailgate party at Stamler, with the UK game on the big screen with cracker barrel to go with it. Sunday morning following cleanup and a Scout's Own service, the climbing tower was open for rappelling. Congratulations to the newly elected lodge officers and those who went through Brotherhood conversion!!

    Fall Fellowship

    Fall Fellowship-Will You be there??

    This will not be an ordinary Fellowship event. For the first time ever, Fall Fellowship has a theme. Tailgate Gameday is coming to Camp McKee on October 3-5.

    The Kawida Lodge LEC has created a plan for this event that will make this the best Fall Fellowship ever!!! The shooting ranges and climbing tower will be open. The chapters will compete against each other in epic games. There will be plenty of patches to trade. Brotherhood Conversion will happen Saturday evening.

    Come support your chapter in the games, enjoy the ranges and tower, eat good food, and fellowship with your brothers.

    This won't be just any fellowship. This will be Fall Fellowship, Tailgate Gameday style, with Kawida flair.

    Will you be there??

    Fall Ordeal Recap

    Fall Ordeal was a success! We had 32 candidates complete their Ordeal, and five members convert to Brotherhood. The candidates completed many service projects for Camp McKee, including taking down and folding all the tents in camp and taking them to the maintenance area for storage, finishing clearing construction debris from the Adirondack Shelters, assembling the latest edition of the Thunderbird, and setting up bunk beds in Keeneland.

    Congratulations to those who completed the Ordeal, and to our new Brotherhood members!!

    We hope to see all our new members at Fall Fellowship!


    Fall Ordeal

    The Fall Ordeal is less than a week away! This will be the last ordeal in 2014, and the standard is set high from the ordeals earlier this year. We need your help to make it the best Ordeal that Kawida Lodge has ever seen!!!

    If you have been nominated for membership in the Order, this is your last chance this year to complete the Ordeal, so be sure to sign up! If you completed your Ordeal more than ten months ago, you are eligible for Brotherhood! Check the 'Brotherhood Conversion' box on your registration form. If you have just completed your Ordeal recently, we want to meet you! Come out and see what the Order looks like after your Ordeal, make new friends, and enjoy good food! If you are already Brotherhood, we'd love to have your help!

    Registration begins at 6 PM on Friday at Stamler Dining Hall, and the event will end at 10:00 AM on Sunday. It will be an exciting weekend!

    Second Summer Ordeal Recap

    The Second Summer Ordeal was a great event! Candidates completed several service projects, including tearing down cots in the campsites and putting them in storage and removing brick from the Adirondack Shelters. 23 candidates successfully completed the Ordeal, and seven members sealed their membership in the Order by converting to Brotherhood.

    Thanks to all the Arrowmen who came out to help, and congratulations to our new members!!!
