Next Sunday, June 14th, Hungteetsepoppi will hold it's annual Spring BBQ and Officer Elections at Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland Hills. Did I mention that the BBQ is FREE? If you don't know where the park is, scroll down and take a look at the map. It's only 5 minutes from anywhere in Piedmont.
February 27 - March 1st, 2009, at Camp Augusta
On the weekend of March 1st, Arrowmen traveled from the Bay Area to Camp Augusta to participate in this years PoppiFest. We arrived on a Friday night and stayed up late. Saturdays service project for Camp Augusta was a great addition to the numerous cheerful service projects Hungteetsepoppi have helped for the camp.
After a delicious dinner and a superb Brotherhood Ceremonies completed, the PoppiFest festivities began. After a rigid and strenuous day, Arrowmen sat back, enjoy the company of their fellow Arrowmen by chatting among one another, and watched the movie, Tropic Thunder.
On a snowy Sunday morning, the Lodge gathered for a short picture, packed up their gear and then took the trek back to the Bay Area.
Section W3S? What the heck is that?
Last Fall, the old Section W3A was re-partitioned, and the new W3S was formed. Unfortunately, we lost our two closest neighbors, Talako of Marin, and Ut-in-Selica of Mt. Diablo-Silverado, but they have been replaced by two new lodges, Toloma Lodge of Greater Yosemite Council, and Tah-Heetch Lodge of Sequoia Council.
As you may have noticed, we didn't have the Conclave last April as usual, but the Council of Chiefs decided to change the date to Fall, and the new date is September 25-27th.
The 2009 Conclave Registration site has not yet opened, but will in the next few weeks. You will receive an email when it does, and we hope to see you at the first W3S Fall Conclave.
Did you know....
Unit elections were held in April and May, and 28 OA Candidates were elected by the 5 Troops in Piedmont? We are looking forward to a great Ordeal in the fall.
Congratulations to lodge members Daniel W, Michael C, and Patrick N. on your Eagle.
