LLD has been postponed until it is safe for the Wahunsenakah brothers to meet again in person.
OA celebrates camping traditions. Grab your rubber duck, pitch your tent in your own backyard and participate in The Great Garden Camp-out, THIS weekend, April 4-5, 2020. Post photo evidence of your "campsite" to either our Lodge Instagram or Facebook group.
More information about the Great Garden Camp-out can be found in the video HERE.
The health and safety of our Scouts and Volunteers is of the utmost importance to us. Over the past several hours we have had conversations with the BSA National Health and Safety Director, the Surry Health Department, and following the guidance of the CDC and health authorities we have decided that for the safety of all our members we are cancelling the Wahunsenakah Lodge Winter Service Weekend.
This decision was not made easily. We know this may impact schedules and other upcoming OA events.
The Lodge Registration Team will reach out to everyone about payments that have been made and ensuring all candidates set up for a future Ordeal and help move all current OA Brothers to a future weekend. Again, the Registration Team will be reaching out in the coming weeks to take care of everyone.
We appreciate everyone working with us as we take care of everyone for this event and prepare for our future lodge events.
Yours in Scouting,

At the 2019 Summer Service Weekend, a Lodge Rules Amendments Committee met to update the Lodge Rules for 2019. At the November 2019 LEC, the LEC approved the amendments to be sent out to general membership for consultation. This is all per the current Lodge Rules amendment process described in the Lodge Rules. The link below directs to a google doc with the Lodge Rules, with all amendments as agreed upon by the LEC.
Please do not comment on this document. However, if you have an item you wish to be addressed, please send an email to myself (firstname.lastname@example.org). I will be taking emails until December 4. After this date, the Youth on the LEC will discuss any additional suggestions and make final adjustments to the Lodge Rules. The final version will be sent out December 11, 2019.
At the holiday banquet please make sure to find your way to the voting table, where Youth can vote for or against the amendments as a whole.
