Informational Message from National NOAC Chairmen Ray Capp - regarding NOAC visitors

Q. Several parents have asked me about obtaining a visitor’s pass for the day to visit their son while at the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference, similar to the national Scout jamboree. Is this possible? How would I go about obtaining such a pass?

A. Thanks for your question. I’m glad to see that many of our Arrowmen’s parents are excited about NOAC 2015 and our centennial celebration! We are expecting over 15,000 registered participants and staff for our conference. Traditionally, our conference has only been open to registered participants and a select few invited guests/VIP’s. Due to the concerns over youth protection, security, logistics and university requirements, we can allow only these people to participate and experience the NOAC program. There are no “secret events” at NOAC, and we will be encouraging our participants to be active on social media and to be vocal about their incredible experience. I hope that your eager parents will be understanding of the need for this policy and will keep up with their sons through these other avenues.

All members of our Scouting community, whether they are parents, Arrowmen or non-members of the Order of the Arrow are welcome to participate in other planned programs to commemorate the centennial including ArrowTour in the summer of 2015. I’m also certain that your local chapter, lodge and section will be holding events as well. Be sure not to miss them!

Centennial Legacy Rocks:

On behalf of Achewon Nimat lodge, we would like to thank the following Arrowmen for their donations in order to inscribe and physically ship the two Legacy Centennial rocks from California to Tennessee.  The rocks are to be used at NOAC during a special Centennial Fire.  Afterwards the rocks will be transported to the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia where a permanent fireplace structure dedicated to the Order of the Arrow will be constructed.

The rock for Machek N’Gult Lodge came from the creek that ran through the former Camp Dimond in the Oakland hills where the lodge was founded back in 1947.  The rock for Royaneh Lodge came from the hillside above camp where many ceremonies were once held.

Our special thanks go to: Rob Wong, Rick Nygren and Steve Kline for their donations and support of the Legacy rock project.

Centennial Awards:

Congratulations to the following arrowmen who have completed the various requirements for the 2015 Centennial Award.

Order of the Arrow Centennial Project:

Were you associated with the lodge before 1970?  If so we need your help.  We are currently working on  the history project for the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow, known as the Centennial Project. We are looking for stories, interesting lodge happenings and personal recollections to add to the history booklet.
