Order of the Arrow

From Woapalanne Chapter Chief – J.D. Kleck
Hello to all Arrowmen,

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,
JD Kleck Chapter Chief

Hey Arrowman,

Have you registered for Conclave 2017: SERVE? Its not too late! Check out the information below and register today. We will have events and training for everyone. Need more info about Conclave? Click here

Already registered? Head over to the Trading Post to see some of the new merch.





The training classes at Conclave are some of the best around.  With some of the top trainers from across the section, you cannot go wrong with your class choices.  Conclave 2017 will focus on three areas of training: Administration, American Indian, and Arrowman Development.  Each of these areas have classes for OA veterans and new Arrowmen alike.



Think your lodge has what it takes to beat other lodges at various sporting events? Then Conclave competitions are the place for you! This year competitions will include Lodge Ball, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball and Gaga Ball! We will be running bracket style tournaments for all competitions. Start putting your teams together now and bring your all at Conclave 2017!




Special Events

Conclave isn’t just training, competitions, and American Indian activities. There are some special events you can attend as well.  This year we are introducing the Key 3+1 dinner.  Gather your lodge key three together and one other Arrowman (we recommend an up and coming Arrowman) and join the section leadership for a fantastic dinner. The Vigil Re-dedication is the most popular special event at Conclave. The Vigil Re-dedication will be at 6 a.m. on Saturday, so if you were planning to sleep in, think again. The first 100 people to arrive at the re-dedication that morning receive a special gift, so make sure to get up bright and early.



This year we are holding Pre-Ordeal, Brotherhood, Vigil honor, and Legend ceremony competitions.  We are also offering Ordeal Evaluation for teams to see how well they do their ceremony and how they can improve. If enough teams compete it will become a competition along with the rest of the ceremonies.  We encourage all lodges to enter their ceremony teams, no matter the skill level.
