From Woapalanne Chapter Chief – Calvin
Welcome to the Order of the Arrow. Our Lodge is known as Netopalis Sipo Schipinachk, of the Longhorn Council. The name means, “Warriors of the River with Outstretched Arms.” Our Roadrunner District Chapter is known as Woapalanne, the “Bald Eagle.” Our regular monthly meeting is held during District Roundtable. As I write this, Roundtable is the first Thursday of each month, 7:30 p.m. at the LDS Church , 4401 NE Loop 820, North Richland Hills , TX 76180 .
Our chapter elections occur each year in October. We elect four officers, including Chapter Chief, First Vice Chief in charge of Elections, Second Vice Chief in charge of Ceremonies, Third Vice Chief in charge of Projects and Scribe. From January through April we hold elections within the troops of Roadrunner District for new Arrowmen. We “tap out” those elected during the District Spring Camporee each year. After that, those who are tapped out must complete an ordeal with one year. Ordeals take place from May through the summer. There are usually about four Ordeal opportunities during this time frame. There are also opportunities each year for Arrowmen who want to complete their Brotherhood walk.
There are many other OA events during the course of a year, and several opportunities to get involved and perform service. For example, we are looking for Arrowmen who are interested in joining our Chapter ceremony team. The team does a variety of ceremonies each year, such as Arrow of Light, Bridging, and Tap-Outs. There are both speaking and non-speaking parts available. If you have been inducted into the Order of the Arrow, we hope you will volunteer in some capacity. Scouting needs you.
Yours in Brotherhood,
