The Crow's Nest
Order of the Arrow

May 2002

Conclave + Camporee

Conclave was a BLAST! We had a great time and we (Wiatava) won in several events. We won in the triathalon, the youth cooking contest, and something else that I don't remember. People tell me that they had a great time, but the weather was on the cold side.

Camporee was fun too. Everyone had fun helping judge skits and working at the Crow Booth. Mr. T. did a great job at cooking. His salsa was gone like that (snap)! Also, we had fun dressing up in regalia and doing the Tap-Out Ceremony.

Vice Chief of Elangomats

Hi fellow arrowmen,

This is your Vice Chief of Elangomats. If you're actually reading through this flier... I'm proud of you. My estimation is that about one-fifth of you made it past the headline. (S/K)

Well, ... eh... um... mm... tell me if you want to be an elangomat at ordeal.

It is May 31 - June 2, so tell me now!! If Ordeal has already happened and it is past June 2... sorry. Oh well, ... there is always next year. Sorry I wasted two to three minutes of your time for those slow readers like me.

Ciao for now.

Vice Chief of Elangomats
