Banquet Recap:

Seventy-one people attended Achewon Nimat’s 52nd Annual Banquet. Delicious appetizers were provided by the cook team and the O’Hana Hawaiian/Asian meal was enjoyed by all.  The waiter auction was very entertaining resulting in waiters who served their patrons well. The proceeds from the waiter auction and silent auction will go to the NOAC fund helping our youth contingent to attend the 2018 NOAC.

A Hawaiian piñata was shared by the youth and many were lucky to receive door prizes. Congratulations to all of the recipients of special awards and recognitions. The banquet committee would like to thank everyone who pitched in to make this a very successful and enjoyable banquet.

Klondike Derby:

After not being able to put on a council-wide Klondike last year due to unforeseen circumstances, this year we have a new site, revamped program, and renewed enthusiasm. Taking place at Cisco Grove (instead of Camp Hi-Sierra), the Klondike committee can’t wait to provide a competitive yet encouraging environment for Troops to get the full experience out of snow camping. With a fresh location, Troops will get to experience new sights, new sounds, and definitely more snow!

However, to run the camp effectively, I am calling upon all OA members to come make the Klondike experience even better by staffing. While this is a Troop focused camp, the OA is expected to represent themselves well and run a smooth camp experience.  The key to a smooth program is a quality staff, only possible if we have enough sign-ups. Even if you don’t want to staff, come with your Troop to get a feel for the event, so you be on next year’s staff roster! Ultimately, I and the entire Klondike committee can’t wait to show some OA pride and run a winter camp that dazzles the Troops of SFBAC.  Questions? Contact me at klondikechair@

Words from Our Chief:

Hello Achie!  I hope all of you had a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. The holiday season may be over but the spirit of giving never ends. Thank you staff members and everyone who helped out with the Winter Camp Awareness training. It ran smoother than last year and I wanted to congratulate all of you for making another WCA happen. Next, I want to remind you guys of our upcoming events. The Klondike Derby will be located at Cisco Grove RV

Park in Emigrant Gap and will have all sorts of fun games and tournaments.  Make sure that you sign up early to get a slot for staffing Klondike because there are limited spaces and they get picked fast. Let’s not forget our annual Achiefest. Last year was super fun and this year will be even better. I hope so see you all there and participate in some Indian handball or test your skills on Monte Carlos night.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Ryan Berry, Lodge Chief

Lodge Adviser Report:

Hello Achie,  What an exciting last few months and events for Achewon Nimat! First, our banquet to celebrate the year and to recognize our servant leaders. Thanks to the banquet committee as well as helpers who make this event happen each year.

Second, Winter Camp Awareness. One of the longest running and well-attended events serving our troops, led by our young leaders with the support of our advisers. Similar, we have Klondike Derby in the horizon. These are events that scout units depend on and enjoy! We can't be more proud of the members of Achie for your service. Kudos to Vice Chief of Service, Mark Stephenson, Klondike Chair, Andrew Divita, and their adviser, Rob Santos for leading this the last couple of years!

I want to encourage those of you who have not been able to make a village meeting or lodge event to attend at least ONE meeting or event before summer! With a small increase in participation I think we can take service and fellowship to the next level. For those who don't know where to start, contact Chief Ryan @

In Cheerful Service,

Rob Wong, Co-Lodge Adviser
