Here is what one Northeast Region did to record their 2015 NOAC trip.  A possible project for Chumash Lodge to do for the next NOAC.

Going for Brotherhood at the Ordeal

Invitations with forms were mailed to eligible current dues paying members in early July.  Here are copies of those forms.  Some packets may have been missing the Requirements form.  You can click here to download that form (two-sided, single sheet)

Youth Protection Training

Any adult or Scout age 18 or over must have BSA's Youth Protection Training under recently revised guidelines.  Please go online to and complete the appropriate Youth Protection Training course.  Please print out a copy of your completion certificate at the conclusion of the online training.

Individuals 18 or over not having proof of a valid completion of this course during the previous 24 months will need to attend a training class on Saturday morning during the Ordeal.  Western Region has adopted a policy that Youth Protection Training is now an annual requirement.
