This is the largest event in the OA, with upwards of 8,000 attendees — from more than 200 lodges—expected from across the country. NOAC is our flagship national event, held over six days that includes leadership development, fun activities, fellowship periods, and nightly shows with live entertainment, a laser light show, and more. This is an event you don’t want to miss!
Registration is open and you can sign up by seeing Abbie Teeple at August Ordeal or by emailing her. A final cost (including transportation and spirit items) will be announced in February of 2022, but the event fee of $575 is due to Abbie by December 1, 2021.
If you feel like you cannot make the December 1st deadline, the lodge will work with you. Contact Abbie and we will come up with a plan. However, there is an additional $50 fee if you finish payments after December 1st.
If you have any financial concerns, there is help. The Jimmy C. Arthurs Fund is offering need-based scholarships to any arrowman who needs financial help. To apply for this scholarship, please visit this page and complete the application as soon as possible.
If you have any questions regarding NOAC 2022, please feel free to email our contingent leader, Kevin Goettge.
James (Jimmy) Arthurs was a long-time scouter in the Piedmont Council impacting many youth and adults through his volunteerism at the local unit, district and council levels. A life long resident of Mooresville, NC, Jimmy was an Eagle Scout and a recipient of the District Award of Merit, Silver Beaver, Founder’s Award amongst other things, and was a Vigil Honor Member of the Eswau Huppeday Lodge where he served as the Lodge Treasurer Advisor for decades.
The James C. Arthurs Memorial Scouting Scholarship Fund is the project of former Lodge Chiefs of Eswau Huppeday Lodge who were lucky enough to be mentored by Jimmy and to call him a friend. Because he had such an impact individually and collectively, the brain-trust of this fund wanted to ensure that his memory/legacy continues to live on. Jimmy was an avid attender of many Scouting events; especially the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC). Because NOAC is a special event that can be transformational and beneficial to all attendees, especially the youth, it was decided that the fund would go to pay the NOAC registration fee for Scouts who will be 17 or younger at the time of the NOAC.
This fund is funded purely by the donations of its benefactors with no tax advantages. That’s how much Jimmy meant to its benefactors. It is meant to be “needs based” meaning the Scout would not be able to go without the funds that this fund provides. Additionally, there is an application’s process that is outlined in a subsequent section of this form.
Applicants for consideration must submit the following:
- Verification signed by the Scout and the Parent/Guardian that funding is absolutely essential for the Scout to be able to attend (Scout is Trustworthy).
- Complete the Scout Profile/Application form and submit no later than 9/30/2021. Interviews will be conducted via phone or zoom with an awardee/s selected no later than 10/31/2021.
- Adequately express in 500 words or less via typed or the written word what Scouting means to you, what it would mean for you to attend NOAC and how you plan to re-pay the donation through acts of service and or leadership at the lodge or troop level.
- Submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
