The Crow's Nest
Order of the Arrow

August 2003

Crow Chief

YOGI BLEEDS GREEN! Every good Crow knows this, but we have not been able to prove this fact for many years. But this year it all changes. If the Crows can pull together and have a fabulous showing at Pow-Wow and I mean FABULOUS - more than 40 youth, victory will be ours! The Pow-Wow committee is working hard making props and spirit items. If you all will participate, the bear will surely be ours, and we can finally prove to all other Chapters and the Lodge itself what we all have known since the beginning - that Crow is simply the best Chapter in the Lodge. C-R-O-W!!! So be at Pow-Wow and help Crow achieve our greatness. Remember, if you worked the Clean-Up shift at Corn Festival, you get 10 dollars off!
Hope to see you all there.

Fellow OA People

Hi! This is Justin, your Vice-Chief of Service. If you weren't there at Corn Festival, it was great! I was there at night and it went really well. More people should have gone though. I also need people, mostly youth, to work at Lodge Ordeal. If you have any questions, call Pat Willard.

Fellow Arrowmen,

Ok. We had the articles down 3 months ago, but it has been going down hill since then. So, I would like it if you guys were to keep giving me the articles. Even though I wasn't at the meeting, that doesn't mean there is no way to give me the article. You can always type it up and e-mail it to me at

Yours in Scouting,
- Craig C.
