Message from the Cook Crew
In order to help keep our Grand Lodge clean, we ask that chapters sit together as much as possible. After meals, each Chapter needs to clean up their area and ensure that their table(s) have been properly wiped down with all plates and silverware put away.
Service chapter information for serving and cleaning during the event can be found on the schedule. Please be sure that you’re on time, and that your chapter has the right amount of helpers to do the job they are supposed to do.
If any adults are interested in working on Cook Crew, and for any youth who want to be a part of the Youth Food Committee, please fill out the form at the button below.
Do you remember your Elangomat? An elangomat is your guide through the Ordeal process and it’s their responsibility to lead you in cheerful service. We want every candidate to have a memorable experience this Spring Inductions. If you have any interest in being an Elangomat at Spring Inductions, we encourage you to attend this training.
Canned Food Drive
Do you want to have the best seats at the Saturday night show of Conclave? We do. Bring all the canned food your arms (or car) can carry to Spring Pow-Wow. The Lodge that brings the most cans will get the best seats at Conclave, located right in front of the stage.
Banana Brawl Contest
If the lodge reaches 250 participants registered for Conclave by Saturday at noon of Spring Pow-Wow, the Lodge Officers will have a banana brawl. If we make it to 350 participants registered for Conclave, the Lodge Officers will shave their heads!
New Thunderfest Activity
We’re adding a new activity to Thunderfest at this event called Team Trivia. Grab yourself and two other players to make a team of three! We’ll have two games with one starting at 9:00 and the other at 9:45. The winning team will win a banana themed prize. Both youth and adults are able to play.
COPE and Climbing Waiver
The climbing tower at camp will be open in the morning on Saturday of Spring Pow-Wow. In order to participate, all interested members must sign and bring the waiver found at the button below. For those under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must also sign the waiver.
If you’re a vigil honor member, we’re holding a special breakfast for you on Saturday morning. The vigil breakfast is $5 payable at breakfast. We hope to see all Vigil Honor members there. Check your schedule for time.
Conclave Banana Suits
Conclave is almost here and it’s time to pick up your banana suits. When we announced our conclave theme, we added that the first 200 youth who register will get a free banana suit to bring. If you’re registered for Conclave and are under the age of 21, head to the Trading Post this weekend and pick up your suit.
We’re holding a chainsaw safety training this weekend at 9:00 am in the Beluga Club of the Grand Lodge. If you’re interested in attending, you must be 18 years or older. No sign-up required. Please bring your own chainsaw to the training.
