Chapter Chief

My fellow Arrowmen (and women),

Ordeal is upon us, and with it, all the Candidates that can be inducted in the coming month. We have right around 35 or so Candidates going, but the Chapter needs more members to go to Ordeal . There will be a sign up sheet at the next Chapter Meeting for you all to sign up for Ordeal and help out.

The Chapter really needs you all to come to Ordeal and to the Chapter Meeting . The meeting this month has the Downhill before it, so it begins at 6:30, at Emanuel Lutheran Church.

Regretfully, I am unable to attend, which is why I would like to see a full sign in sheet from the meeting. For those of you who cannot make the meeting, and would still like to attend Ordeal , call me or Mr. Price, or really any Board Member , they will know what to do. Hope to see you all at Ordeal .

In Brotherhood,
- Pat W.
Chapter Chief

Monthly Riddle

Unmoving horses, ever in motion. The lights, tiny suns, the sound of commotion.
Scratch my back and I am nobody.
What is it?

Answer to last month's riddle:
A mirror


Ordeal is coming, Ordeal is coming!!!
That's right, the most important event of the year is just over the horizon and we will have a fresh batch of Candidates after the Camporee . We need you all to come so we can have enough Elangomats and workers to help out. Also, come to the next meeting and join one of the Ceremony Teams and participate in one of the most important events an Arrowman will ever experience!
