For the Senior Patrol Leader or Patrol Leader

Patrol Leaders Guide Book - Keeping a record of meetings, camping trips plans, adventures and memorable moments is a great way to become a better patrol. Reviewing the information in your patrol log will help your patrol understand what they should start doing, keep on doing or, perhaps, stop doing. Your logbook should, of course relate all the fun, adventure and friendship your patrol shares. Be sure to write down all of your achievements and successes, but don’t forget to include your flops and failures.

Patrol System eBook - This book written in the 1960's is a great introduction to the Patrol Method.

Troop Meeting Plan Worksheet - Use this sheet to plan our your Troop meeting so everything flows smoothly.

Order of the Arrow Info and Forms

What is the Order of the Arrow?  The Order of the Arrow (a.k.a OA) is the National Honor Society of the Boy Scouts of America.  The OA promotes camping and service to the Blue Ridge Mountains Council. We are part of the Tuscarora Chapter of the Tutelo Lodge #161.  Chapter meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of the month; from August to May, at Saint Luke's UMC in Danville, VA at 7pm.  See Brian Brumfield if you need a ride.

How do you become involved in the OA?  Scouts and Scouters who have been approved by their Scoutmaster and met several requirements are eligible for election by their Troop.  Those requirements are you must be at least First Class in rank, and camped a minimum of 15 days in the past 2 years.  Included in those 15 days is a long term camp, like summer camp.  Adults nominees must meet the same requirements as Scouts, except for Rank.  Adults are not elected but are approved by the Lodge Executive Committee. Once you are elected you must complete an Ordeal to become a member of the OA.   Ordeals are held 3 times a year at the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation in March, June and September.  Once you are elected you must complete your Ordeal within 1 year or be re-elected.  Troops are only allowed one Unit Election per year.

For more information about the OA see your OA Troop Rep or visit
