ASHUK T’SALIL CHAPTER - T’KOPE KWIS KWIS LODGE

Ashuk T'salil: The Northern Trails District's chapter of the scouting honor society, "Order of the Arrow" is called "Ashuk T'salil". There are nine chapters, including Ashuk T'salil, within our T'Kope Kwis Kwis Lodge. Each chapter services the units within a district with units appointing a representative to the chapter as a liaison between the unit and the chapter and lodge. This Unit Representative attends the chapter meetings and reports back to the unit important information about opportunities and events in the chapter and lodge. The dues for maintaining membership is $15 per year and can be paid quick and easy with a credit card through the Council's OA Membership Renewal Registration System.
Calendar: Scheduled T'Kope Kwis Kwis Lodge Order of the Arrow events are listed on the Lodge Calendar. These include three Ordeals, where newly elected candidates learn about and become a member of the Order. All 2020 Ordeals have been cancelled according to our Induction Vice-Chief, Caroline Rich, although we have three scheduled for 2021 for those unable to attend this year and for newly elected 2020 Ordeal Candidates.
Chapter Meetings: The Ashuk T'salil Chapter meets monthly on the 2nd Thursday of the month at the same place and time as the Northern Trails 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. Due to the ongoing risk of Covid-19, meetings are now remote by Zoom. Details can be found in our list of meetings.
Service Projects: The Order of the Arrow is a service oriented organization and promotes camping and our council camps; Camp Pigott, Camp Parsons, Camp Sheppard, and Camp Edward. It is common to see our OA members serving at summer camps, shooting sports weekends, winter camps, Arrow of Light ceremonies, etc..
Unit Elections: Units hold elections with the aid of a team from the Chapter this year between the start of November and the end of March. 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. You may also 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. Contact Chapter Leadership to reserve your preferred date.
