by | Apr 7, 2022 | Event Recap | 0 comments

Rendezvous 2022 was great. Not only did we have a total of 217 members attend, we had 3 very special guests attend, the first was the first ever gateway region chief, our very own Dirk Smelser. The second of our guests was the mayor of Vancouver. She is a vigil member of our lodge and gave some remarks during the evening show. And last but certainly not least, was Matt Devore, he is our Chief scout executive. We elected 2 new lodge officers, and awarded some Lodge service awards, the Founders awards, and James E. West awards. We started on Friday night with a big game of Wauna Feud! Our own recreation of Family Feud. We had the Lodge Officers and our Gateway Chief vs all of our chapter chiefs. The chapter chiefs won by a last second comeback. On Saturday we started with electing our new Membership and Communications Vice Chiefs. We then started our activities. For the first time in a while, we opened the climbing wall. We had 3 different ranges open, shotgun, archery, and tomahawk. After lunch we had 4 different trainings, All about WICC which was taught by Bryant Gillins and his Advisor Blair Timmerman. Our next training was What the OA can offer you which was taught by Mason Lewellen and Dirk Smelser. We had a class for ordeal members who wanted to be brotherhood. This was taught by our Brotherhood chair Logan Maxwell. And finally Mr. Phillips taught a class for adults about What’s new in the OA. In the evening we gave out all of our yearly awards. We followed this with our brotherhood election. We had 32 ordeal members become brotherhood. Overall this was a great rendezvous and we can’t wait until the next one! Yours in Scouting, Jack Lewy 2022 Rendezvous Chairman
