Man on the Street
By Joseph Barnes
I had the opportunity to ask arriving delegates a few questions regarding the National Order of the Arrow Conference and their plans for the week.
Nolan and Connor both arrived yesterday after traveling four and a half hours from Waupecan Lodge in Morris, IL. Nolan plans to run in both the 5k and 10k. Both are looking forward to the opportunities to meet new Arrowmen at conference events.
Michael is an Ordeal member from Owasippe Lodge in Chicago, IL. He is looking forward to trading patches with participants from across the country and log-rolling at Adventure Central. Michael enjoys the comradery and friendships he made through the Order.
Logan from Jaccos Towne Lodge in Indianapolis, IN, spent the night at Ransburg Scout Reservation and drove to NOAC yesterday morning. Logan looks forward to sleeping in a dorm room and walking around campus. One of his favorite OA activities is providing service to his local camp.
Aidan is a Brotherhood member from Cowikee Lodge in Dothan, AL. Aidan made his way to NOAC over three days of driving and made stops at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL, the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory, and Mammoth Cave. He is ready to attend training sessions and meet new friends as well as seeing old ones. He enjoys providing service to his lodge, council, and community.
