Order of the Arrow elections tonight

Hello Troop

Please make every effort to be at tonight’s meeting. We will be having Order of the Arrow elections and we need as many scouts there as possible to have a good election. The requirements to be considered for the O/A are below. If you would like to be considered as a candidate tonight please see or contact Matt Verrelli, Mr Spea, or me before the meeting. Thank you.

To become a member, a youth must be a registered member of a Boy Scout Troop and hold the First Class rank. He must have experienced 15 days and nights of Boy Scout camping during the two-year period prior to election. The 15 days and nights must include one, but no more than one, long-term camp consisting of six consecutive days and five nights of resident camping, approved and under the auspices and standards of the BSA. The balance of the camping must be overnight, weekend, or other short-term camps. Following approval by the Scoutmaster, Scouts are elected to seek membership in the Order by their fellow unit members. Then, after completing an Ordeal experience, they become members of the Order of the Arrow.
