Lodge Adviser Message:

Have you registered in the Lodge for 2014-2015 year yet?  This year we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary as an OA Lodge and we are encouraging all of our Arrowmen to participate in the Lodge's activities.  There will be a 50th Anniversary pocket patch that will only be made available to those members registered in the Lodge for 2014.  There will be a special JTE pocket patch as well and information will be coming shortly providing the requirements for earning that patch.  We will also be preparing for NOAC 2015 where the OA will be celebrating it's 100th birthday.  Members desiring to serve on the NOAC staff will have to be registered in the Lodge during both 2014 and 2015 and take an active role in staff activities in order to serve on the NOAC 2015 staff.

I am looking to meeting those of you that I have not already met and to working with you.

Harry M. Clyde, Lodge Adviser


Order of the Arrow Centennial Project:

Are you artistic?  Do you know about the history of our Lodge?  If you do, then 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.


Achewon Nimat Jackets:

If you don’t have your Achewon Nimat Lodge Jacket yet, don’t forget to get one now.  We are getting ready to place another order to our vendor and only need a few more jackets to complete the order.  For questions email the trading post chairmen or go to the Trading post page on our website.


Journey to Excellence (JTE):

The JTE pocket patch is designed to aid in meeting the JTE Membership and Brotherhood Conversion requirements.  In order to obtain this patch an Arrowman must accomplish one of the following:


1. One patch will be awarded to each Arrowman that completes his or her Brotherhood conversion within 15 months of his or her  Ordeal.


2. Over one Lodge year (July 1 – June 30) Arrowmen will be awarded one JTE pocket patch each five (5) Ordeal members he or she brings to an Ordeal and who seal their membership in the Order of the Arrow by Brotherhood conversion at that Ordeal.  The 5 Arrowmen must be registered for the Ordeal in advance of the date of the Ordeal.


3. Over one Lodge year (July 1 – June 30) Arrowmen will be awarded one JTE pocket patch for each ten (10) completed re-registration forms with registration fees submitted to  Achewon Nimat Lodge for members who were not been registered during the last lodge year.  Any of the 10 who are Ordeal members must also seal their membership in the Order of the Arrow by  Brotherhood conversion before they will be counted as one of the 10.  Lists of applicable  Arrowmen will be provided upon request.  


The patches will be controlled and awarded by the Lodge Adviser and Lodge Treasurer Adviser.  Please address questions to Adviser@AchewonNimat.org.



National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC 2015):

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting's second-largest national event. Over 10,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun!

During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a six-day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.

The 2015 NOAC will be held from August 3-8, 2015 at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, and will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. Arrowmen will travel to NOAC with a contingent from our lodge, or as a staff member supporting the thousands of Arrowmen attending in the conference.

In the coming months you will find everything you need to know about NOAC 2015: how to go, what exciting opportunities await you, and the plans for the conference.  Follow us at www.AchewonNimat.org to stay up to date with information and announcements.

Arrowmen attending the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference will get a once in a lifetime souvenir, a
special edition red sash. These sashes will differ from those currently worn in that the colors will be reversed, with a white arrow emblazoned on a red sash. The rarity of the sash is noteworthy, as only those present at NOAC 2015 will receive them. Any extras produced will not be sold.

Don't miss out on NOAC in 2015, because the next one won't be until 2018! To reserve you spot in your lodge contingent talk to your lodge chief, lodge adviser, or lodge staff adviser today.  Get Ready, Get Set, NOAC 2015!



NOAC Registration:

All Arrowmen who are registered members of the Boy Scouts of America and have their council's approval, are eligible to participate in the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference. All participants must register as a member of a lodge contingent or be a member of the conference staff.

Those Arrowmen that wish to apply for NOAC 2015 staff positions must be registered in the Achewon Nimat lodge during both 2014 & 2015 in order for their applications to be approved by the San Francisco Bay Area Council.
