  • Fall Fellowship In Review

    Arrowmen gathered at Camp Stigwandish over the weekend of October 18-20 for this year’s Fall Fellowship and the final edition of our Back to the Future themed events.  After setting up their tents in campsites organized by chapters, members gathered at the dining hall for fellowship, some games, and a showing of Back to the Future III.

    Following a crisp, chilly night, everyone enjoyed a delicious breakfast of biscuits and sausage gravy before beginning the morning’s service projects.  Crews hit the trails to clean up branches and debris, including clearing several large logs that had fallen across trails.  Another crew spent the majority of the afternoon digging post holes and setting posts for the human foosball court that the lodge is funding and installing at Stig.

    After lunch, members enjoyed an Amazing Race style series of challenges across camp, capped off with a dutch oven cook off.  LEC members participated in the national Thrive webinar with all the lodges across the country, discussing how to improve elections, inductions, and activation.

    Everyone enjoyed a hearty dinner before elections for 2020 lodge officers. Congratulations to the following Arrowmen who were elected:

    • Lodge Chief: Evan R.
    • Executive Vice Chief: Patrick S.
    • Vice Chief, Program: Trevor H.
    • Vice Chief, Membership: Kaleb C.
    • Vice Chief, Native American Traditions: JJ O.
    • Vice Chief, Communications: Donnie S.
    • Vice Chief, Finance: Max H.
    • Chippewa Chapter Chief: Ian T.
    • Kittan Chapter Chief: Alek B.
    • Naxa Sipu Chapter Chief: Owen W.

    Members capped off the evening by playing casino games and inducting three scouts to the Brotherhood honor.  And what Wild West-themed weekend would be complete without root beer?!

    On Sunday morning, members were treated to a Paul Bunyan breakfast.  The lodge also inducted the last two Vigil honor members for this year: Nick J and Jen Folkman—congratulations!

    Join us on Saturday, February 1, to celebrate a fantastic 2019 at our Winter Banquet!

  • Super Summer Induction
    Great weather and fantastic fun capped off the most attended lodge event in our history thus far! Over 150 Arrowmen came out to Beaumont Scout Reservation for our Summer Induction Weekend from August 23-25.

    As members gathered Friday evening, they participated in activities including a new 9 Square in the Air game constructed by Larry Andrews and donated to the lodge—thank you, Larry!!

    Saturday morning members did service along the trails at camp, included building stairs along the Beaumont Trail.

    The OA circle was jam-packed with current members who witnessed the induction of 37 new Ordeal members in the afternoon.

    Music filled the air as Arrowmen enjoyed the Beaumont pool, water slides, corn hole, and a cookout on Saturday afternoon.

    19 Arrowmen sealed their membership in the lodge by completing their Brotherhood Saturday evening. Everyone enjoyed casino games that night before a viewing of Back to the Future II.

    Thank you to Vice Chief of Program Owen and his team for putting together a tremendous weekend program!

    Don’t miss our Fall Fellowship for more fun, the final installment of Back to the Future, celebrating the last two Vigil recipients, and the last opportunity to earn Brotherhood this year. See you there!

  • Vigil Weekend 2019 Recap
    Warm temperatures and clear skies set the stage for this year’s Vigil Weekend at Firelands Scout Reservation.  Dozens of current Vigil Honor members joined ten of this year’s candidates for their service project and overnighter.

    This year’s Vigil class voted to make benches for our council camps.  With the assistance of skilled woodworkers like Larry Andrews, the team cut all the 2x2s, 2x4s, and 4x6s they needed for their bench design.

    Upon completing as many benches at the afternoon hours allowed, everyone gathered for a filling dinner before preparing for the evening activities.  Evening ceremonies began as the sun set and with the sunrise, Vigil Honor candidates became Vigil Honor members.  Family members, guests, and fellow Scouters joined those already at camp for a delicious breakfast and celebration.

    Congratulations to Erielhonan Lodge’s newest Vigil Honor Members:
    • John Boksansky ~ Machque Mawenemen ~ Bear Who Unites
    • Adam Bryski ~ Leke Elangomellan ~ Steadfast Friend
    • Kaleb C. ~ Ika Ntatu Mechelgik Ntaxesem ~ Wearer of Many Skins
    • Sean Fahnestock ~ Nkeme Mikemosu Kumhokunk ~ He Who Works in the Clouds
    • Caden H. ~ Kikinhet Nkekeleksi ~ He Who Guides With Laughter
    • Evan R. ~ Nikanixit Naxisemes ~ Leader of Young Brothers
    • Roger Simpson ~ Ulhatenamu Hemptet Ehashentesit ~ Cheerful Cloth Trader
