Totanhan Nakaha Lodge announces registration is now open for NOAC 2015

NOAC, the National Order of the Arrow Conference, is an experience that happens only once every 3 years. For an Arrowman, this event is the premier scouting event to attend. 2015 is the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. NOAC 2015 is all about celebrating this milestone and will be something to talk about for a long time.

In 2012, we brought 96 Arrowmen to East Lansing Michigan, the home of the Spartans of Michigan State University for an incredible week of fun, fellowship and training. Our lodge ceremonial dance team even took 2nd place in the nation, competing against over 150 other lodges.

The cost for NOAC 2015 is estimated to be $675. This includes the conference fee of $475, transportation, travel food and personal NOAC gear (tee shirts, hats, patches etc.).

We are planning on 150 Arrowmen from Totanhan Nakaha lodge attending. In total, over 10,000 Arrowmen from as far away as Japan and Europe are expected to attend. At this time, we have not been told of restrictions in the number of Arrowmen a lodge can send, but we may be limited to a set number. So-o-o-o…

You can reserve your place in the contingent now! A $100 deposit is needed to make sure you are included in this once in a lifetime experience.

Go to the web site https://scoutingevent.com/?2015NOACNSC and make your deposit NOW! Don’t be left out.

The remainder of the cost is due in 2 payments. $275 by January 31st 2015 and $300 by March 31st, 2015. Refunds are available prior to March 31st 2015. After March 31st, no refunds are allowed. However, you may with another Arrowmen if needed.
