Spring Conclave Patches for Sale

Although we missed the opportunity to release the Spring Conclave patch in April, Shawnee Lodge is offering it for sale on Gateway Traders (linked below). The patch is the first of four that will be released over the 2020-2021 campouts to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of Shawnee Lodge. The four-part set will depict lodge history leading to the 90th Anniversary service project at S-F Scout Ranch.

Pre-Ordeal Weekends

New candidates will be notified of their election to the OA in August via a letter. Later that month, Shawnee Lodge will be providing two Pre-Ordeal sleepouts to incoming candidates, hosted at Beaumont. The two weekends will be August 22-23 (for candidates of New Horizons, Gravois Trails, Pathfinder, North Star, and Grand Towers chapters) and August 29-30 (for candidates of Boone Trails, River Trails, Osage, Ozark Trailblazers, and Thunderbird chapters). A callout ceremony will also take place both weekends.

Unit Elections

All units that have not yet conducted their 2020 election are invited to do so; the deadline this year for holding an election is August 1. A request form and more information are linked below and your local chapter will be in touch when the form is submitted. If units do not have eligible members for election, Shawnee Lodge still wants to visit and provide information about the OA! These units may fill out the request form and are asked to put "visit" in the comment section.

Vigil Induction Weekend

Due to the cancellation of Spring Conclave, the Lodge has moved the 2020 Vigil Induction to the weekend of August 1-2 at Beaumont. All Vigil Honor members are invited to attend the event. Family members and other arrowman can attend a special ceremony on August 2. More information on the weekend will come soon.
