So, make the “Kessel run” to your computer and sign up for the Winter Conclave today.
The Jedi training ground will be open at Camp Soule on January 9-11, 2015. All lodge members are encouraged to register early so that we can fully plan for a weekend of cheerful service and fun. Online registration is preferred; however, there is a mail-in registration form on page 3. Registration will begin on Friday at 7:00pm, followed by the pre-ordeal ceremony and a work project leader’s meeting. A complete list of work projects can be found on page 10 of The Eagle.

New Centennial Logo Released
The national Order of the Arrow committee is excited to release the totem and logo for the 100th anniversary celebration. Click on the logo for more info.
Meet the Designer of the Logo
It was just a regular day in Huntsville, Alabama when Nathaniel Kelton's phone rang. Not recognizing the incoming phone number, he answered the phone. The voice on the other end of the phone belonged to someone Nathaniel knew well but had never talked with. The caller said: “My name is Nick Dannemiller and I'm the national chief of the OA." Nathaniel immediately thought he was being pranked. “There was no way that the actual national OA chief was calling to tell me that the design I submitted for the 100th Anniversary identity contest had been chosen to be the Order’s official totem and logo for the centennial," Nathaniel reflected.

Camp Promotions Visitation Form Posted!
One of the primary purposes of the OA is promotion of the Scouting year-round outdoor ex-perience. Timuquan Lodge believes that the summer camp experience is the highlight of the camping year, and therefore strongly encourages each unit to take advantage of the pro-gram opportunities offered at Sand Hill Scout Reservation. Timuquan Lodge believes that supporting Sand Hill Scout Reservation is critical to the Scouting experience by building ca-maraderie, spirit and pride in West Central Florida Council.
Each Chapter of Timuquan Lodge has a camp promotions team. This team visits units with camp promotions materials. Their goal is to promote Sand Hill Scout Reservation to all units of West Central Florida Council.
