Fall Fellowship In Review

Post date: Nov 6, 2019 1:36:11 AM

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, Communications: Donnie S.

  • Vice Chief, Finance: Max H.

  • Chippewa Chapter Chief: Ian T.

  • Kittan Chapter Chief: Alek B.

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!
