Fall Reunion is Shawnee Lodge’s largest event each year. Candidates elected in the summertime join Arrowmen from across the 9 Chapters to serve in various projects at S-F Scout Ranch in Knob Lick, MO.
Outlined in the event map are locations for each Chapter for the weekend. Attendees provide their own tenting arrangements and may purchase meal options with their ticket. Also located in the Chapter’s area is the Chapter Headquarters, where attendees can ask questions and meet for various activities.
On Friday night the Lodge hosts its yearly Officer elections where current youth Arrowmen (under 21) can vote on the leadership team for the upcoming year. Candidates who did not participate in a Shawnee Pre-Ordeal ceremony at summer camp will have the opportunity to this on Friday night as well. They must meet outside the Famous Eagle dining hall at 10 PM with a sleeping bag, mat, pillow, and tarp in field uniform.
Saturday is full of service, fellowship, and fun! At 6:30 AM, all Candidates report to their Chapter Headquarters to begin their Ordeal service projects. Current Arrowmen meet at their Chapter HQ at 8 AM. After service, Candidates and Arrowmen can join together at Wenzel Lodge, in the THUNDERZONE, for all sorts of fun activities and comraderie.
At 3 PM, Chapters hold meetings with all Arrowmen and Candidates. During this time, they will host their own elections for Chapter Officers. These meetings will be followed by the Lodge Officer installation at the Famous Eagle Parade Field and dinner for those who purchased a ticket.
Following dinner, Ordeal and Brotherhood ceremonies will be held. Details can be found on the event schedule.
The Fall Reunion will conclude on Sunday with gates closing at 11 AM.
The 2022-23 Officer term will come to an end at Fall Reunion this year. With that comes elections for the next year of leadership! Youth under 21 are eligible to run for both Chapter and Lodge positions. If you are wanting to advance your leadership and learn more about what it takes to run OA events, consider running for office! For more information on how to run, please contact your current Chapter Chief or Adviser. Their information can be found on your Chapter’s website.
Current members who have completed their Ordeal at least 6 months prior to Fall Reunion are eligible to earn Brotherhood Membership!
The Order of the Arrow’s purposes include recognizing individuals who exemplify the Scout Oath and Law, promoting camping and outdoor adventure, and cheerfully serving others.
The Brotherhood Honor signifies full membership in the Order of the Arrow, showing an individual’s commitment to the ideals of Scouting and the Order.
In 2022, over 120 Shawnee Lodge Arrowmen further sealed their membership in our Lodge and Order by earning Brotherhood.
To earn Brotherhood, an Arrowman must attend one Chapter meeting and one Lodge event, participate in an OA Service Project, camp six days and nights, and have approval from their unit leader.
At Fall Reunion, Chapters will host brotherhood questioning that all Arrowmen seeking Brotherhood must complete. A statement of rededication must also be submitted at this time.
A $25 Brotherhood fee can be added during registration or paid at Fall Reunion for any Arrowman seeking Brotherhood Membership.
Candidates who were called out in 2023 have 18 months to complete their Ordeal and seal their membership in the Order of the Arrow. This includes the 2023 Fall Reunion, 2024 Spring Conclave, and 2024 Fall Reunion.
Candidates who have not completed their Pre-Ordeal ceremony should meet outside the Famous Eagle dining hall on Friday night at 10 PM. They should be in field uniform and come with a tarp, sleeping mat and bag, pillow, and water bottle. They will return to their Chapter Headquarters in the morning.
All Ordeal candidates will meet at their Chapter Headquarters at 6:30 AM on Saturday to begin work in various service projects to benefit the S-F Scout Ranch. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided to Candidates.
