ANNOUNCING Klondike-Oree May 11 & 12 After postponing Klondike, we just didn't get enough units that could fit it into their schedule. So we've decided to combine Klondike with Camporee and conduct the new event on the dates originally planned for Camporee: May 11-12 at Camp Edward. So don’t put away your sleds. You might want to figure out how to attach wheels to the front runners (come to Roundtable to learn how) and get ready for Dash to Dawson – we’ve done it before with no snow, so we know it’s possible. We’ll still have the ice rescue, river crossing and other favorites. . . maybe not the lemming toss, but we’ll work on it. Senior Patrol Leaders & ASPLs are invited to a special breakout discussion at the April Roundtable to discuss ideas for Klondike-Oree (April 12th, 7-8pm). Add Klondike-Oree to your Calendar!!
The North Lakes District's Chapter of the Scouting Honor Society "Order of the Arrow" is called "Ashuk T'salil".
Chapter Meetings: The Chapter meets monthly on the 2nd Thursday of the month at the same place and time as the North Lakes Roundtable. All chapter members are encouraged to attend for fellowship and business. In June the meeting is held as a picnic where officer elections take place.
Calendar: Other Order of the Arrow events are listed on the Lodge Calendar. This includes four Ordeals, where newly elected candidates learn about and become a member of the Order.
Unit Elections: Unit hold elections with the aid of a team from the Chapter this year between November 4th 2017 and April 1st, 2018. Unit leaders should contact the Elections Vice Chief to schedule their election early to reserve their preferred date. Your unit's Youth OA Representative should be able to put you in contact. Or make contact at Round Table or through District Leadership.
Arrow of Light Ceremonies: The chapter offers a team of youth to help make your Arrow of Light ceremonies memorable. The team dresses in the Northwest Coast Regalia. Contact the Chapter Leadership to reserve your preferred date.
Don't miss opportunities to make your unit's program better as we share great ideas and accomplishments of other units in the district, training and other opportunities and pass along information that comes our way. Join the conversation and share what you are doing and news you encounter.
The new calendar has a lot of great features, views for better printing and selection of text, the ability to pick and choose types of events to view, searching, plus lots of ways to stay up to date on your phone or desktop and through email.
Please enjoy photos of our district events. Did you attend and enjoy? Send a link to our District Executive. Didn't attend? Don't miss out next time!

Sometimes applicants are not processed because of a lack of Unit funds in their Escrow accounts
Refilling can be done most easily online at the Event Registration page on the Council's website (the first event) You can also mail a check with a note clearly stating it is for the Unit’s Escrow account
OR call and give a credit card over the phone to Reception at 206 725 5200.
NOTE: Your Escrow Account is for Membership Dues – Your ‘Unit’ Account is for Scout Shop purchases.
The Council has increased its marketing so you may have applicants and persons interested in your Unit who simply need the Unit leader approval or contact. Much easier than finding a new recruit.
Use the BeAScout.org tool to submit applications online, and avoid the retyping of youth and adult applications. (Remember that key 3 adult positions currently still require a paper application.) Some help and instructions can be found in our documents library.
