Hey Sacred Springs Chapter, we will be having our May meeting at Dripping Springs United Methodist Church on Thursday, May 12 at 7:00 pm.
See you there!
Our chapter is currently in the thick of ceremony season. Specifically Arrow of Light and crossover ceremonies. Here are a few pics of scouts from Troop 218 in Buda and Troop 18 in San Marcos. Way to go!
Sacred Springs chapter is trying something new this year—and meeting with great success: troop-based ceremony teams. Youth who tend to already be on similar scouting schedules, we’re finding, are better able to schedule rehearsals and pull together a more cohesive ceremony. Additionally, troops that have established feeder packs can start building rapport with their future troop members in a really cool way! The chapter owns most of the regalia you see here as well as an incredible ceremony drum that can be checked out as needed. If your group is interested in pulling together a ceremony team, please contact us or call 512-947-5934.
Sacred Springs was well represented at the 2013 Spring Assembly. Congrats to the 32 new members who passed their Ordeal! As a Lodge, we had 650 in attendance and over 300 new members overall. Also congrats to our current Chapter Chief, James Collins, who was elected Lodge Secretary and tapped out for the Vigil Honor.
Sacred Springs Camporee was a super experience this year! The “Mountain Man Rendezvous” theme proved to be quite engaging, and…really….how could you go wrong when you give a youth a knife, tomahawk and giant killer spear and tell them to hurl it with all their might!?
Of course, the OA had an outstanding showing. We tapped out 22 new members and had six Brotherhood conversions. Please join us at Ordeal Weekend, May 4-6, to welcome these new folks to our Chapter.
The 2013 Section Conclave, known as the Lone Star Fellowship, took place at Lost Pines Scout Reservation this past weekend. We had a blast! Nine lodges that comprise SR2-3South sent representatives for fun, fellowship and competition. Enjoy these photos and we hope you plan on attending next year’s Conclave!
We need to have everyone we can at the upcoming conclave workday on Feb 23, 2013 at 9:00am at Lost Pines Scout Reservation. Click here to Signup for Conclave Workday
Arrowmen, please don’t miss an opportunity to attend (and help with) the 2013 Section Conclave. Tonkawa 99 is hosting the event at Lost Pines and we will need every hand we can get to make this event a success. Please register online.
The Sacred Springs Chapter wishes to extend a warm welcome to the new arrowmen who recently passed Ordeal. We welcome your attendance and help with our Chapter, and look forward to seeing you becoming Brotherhood members! Read the address to the chapter from the chief.
