Volunteering and Fellowship Opportunities

Fellow Arrowmen,

Please help spread the word regarding upcoming events. Together as Arrowmen in the Tatanka Lodge, we can help insure the success of our Council level events.  There are several opportunities in the near future for volunteering and for fellowship.  Details on all of these events can either be found on our Council Website (www.buffalotrailbsa.org) or on our Lodge Website (www.tatanka141.org).

Lodge Banquet & Training

First and foremost is the Lodge Training and Banquet in December.  This special occasion is open to all past and current members of the OA and their guests. It is looking like this might be our best fellowship yet. Registration is scheduled to start at 5:30, with the dinner following at 6:00 pm.  The banquet will be located at Odessa Regional Medical Center Auditorium, on the south side of the hospital. The entrance can be found on the east side at the south east corner.  Parking is to the south of the building. Additional details at: http://www.tatanka141.org/banquet/

Fall Festival

The council is introducing a new activity for this year – the Fall Festival, complete with a hunted hay ride!  Come help the Haunted staff scare the Cub Scouts on the Haunted Hayrides. In addition to the ride, we will be looking for assistance with the activities on Saturday afternoon.  We are planning to have stations for games, crafts, pumpkin carving, and shooting sports, etc.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mark Richardson (432) 570-7601.  http://buffalotrailbsa.org/fall-festival/

Council Pushmobile

Council Pushmobile is right around the corner – November 12th at 9:30 AM.  Once again, we will be looking for Arrowmen to assist with supervising and directing lane traffic during the races. This year will be at the Mid-Cities Church at 8700 TX-191, Midland, TX .  Feel free to bring your BBQ grills, yard chairs, and shade.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Andrea Oyler (432) 816-7443. http://buffalotrailbsa.org/pushmobile/

Winter Camp

We are offering an amazing selection of merit badges this year at Winter Camp.  With over 35+ classes (9 of them being Eagle Required) we are going to need more help than last year. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mark Richardson (432) 570-7601.  Visit our website for details: http://buffalotrailbsa.org/winter-camp/
