The event will be American Indian activity focused and will offer Arrowmen a hands on approach to the American Indian aspects of our Order. Indian Winter will feature a program that offers “make and take” style training classes as well as instructional classes. The classes will cover a wide range of topics including ceremonies, dance and drum, beadwork, and regalia. The instructors will be top-notch experts from throughout Section SR-9 and ready to help you expand your American Indian knowledge.
Brand new for 2017, we will be incorporating the newly released LINK national program. LINK focuses on three areas of Journey to Excellence each year. Section SR-9 will deliver training sessions on the three areas during Indian Winter. This year’s areas of focus are membership retention, unit election rate, and lodge event attendance. We highly encourage the newly elected lodge and chapter officers to attend so that we can assist them through this program. It is the hope of the section leadership we can make a meaningful positive impact on your local programs shortly afterwards.
Finally, our winter Council of Chiefs meeting will be held at Indian Winter during the day on Saturday. During this meeting the COC will finalize planning for the Heartland Gathering in April.
Indian Winter will offer something for all Arrowmen to enjoy and the section looks forward to seeing you there! The event will be held on February 3 to February 5 at Warner Scout Reservation in Prattville, AL, with a cost of $25 per participant (your lodge may have a different fee).
Registration forms are available below. These are for lodge use only. Consult your lodge leadership for your lodge specific form and registration deadlines.
