Section Conservation Work Weekend
The purpose of our great order is to serve our fellow man, and to become better brothers in doing so. Because you are an Arrowman your fellow scouters saw great potential to be a servant leader. Arrowman are invited to utilize your potential and be a part of the first ever Section C-6B Conservation weekend April 26-28 at John Bryan State Park. As a section we will be fulfilling our orders purpose by providing amazing service to John Bryan State park. Invasive species and years of erosion have moved in on the beautiful trail system of the state park. Many troops of our section hike these trails each year, and now we finally have a chance to make the system better for their use, and for everyone else to enjoy as well. It will take some guts to come out and work hard for a day to give back to the community, but if anyone has it the Arrowmen of C-6B have the courage to step up to the occasion. In addition to the service on Saturday you will have an amazing opportunity to be one of the first to serve the section in this capacity, and to meet many brothers in the section like you. We will be camping at Camp Birch 4057 Swimming Pool Rd, Yellow Springs, OH 45387. Cost for the weekend is $30.00 plus $10.00 for Transportation costs. We will leave as a Group from Camp Friedlander 5:30 PM April 26th and return to Camp on Sunday April 28th. This is a great opportunity to give service back to a beautiful State Park here in Ohio. We would love to see as many Arrowmen from Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge as can make it. It should be a fantastic weekend. Please consider joining us for this fantastic weekend.

Lodge Lock-In 2013
The Lodge Lock-In is coming up fast and this year promises to be an even bigger event than in the past because there are more hours available to members to have fun! Slated to begin on February 16 at 7:00 p.m. and run until 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 17. Please note that instead of the traditional Friday night into Saturday morning the event has been moved to Saturday night into Sunday morning.
“We had the option of starting earlier and going longer by moving to Saturday night” one of the event organizers said recently. “Plus we won't have scouts needing to leave early for the Ft. Hamilton Merit Badge Challenge event like last year.” The MBC event is Saturday morning, February 16 and in the past, scouts leave the Lock-In and go directly to their merit badge classes after having been up all night.
Cost for the event is $15. You can register for the event by going here. If you purchased the Lock-In as part of your 2013 Master Coupon, you're already good to go.
The location is Mercy Healthplex-Farifield at 3050 Mack Road Suite 110 in Fairfield. If you're not familiar with the area, it is near the Cincinnati Mills Mall off I-275. Take that exit (either left or right off the offramp depending upon which direction you've driven on I-275) and then proceed north past the mall and Cincinnati Financial. Turn right onto Mack Road and proceed up the hill past the Mercy Emergency exit and turn left into the main parking area. There is a sign that directs you to Mercy Healthplex.
Bring cards, board games, swim suit and prepare to have fun!
