at 10 am with a parade, Arrowmen marched the
streets with the National Chief Clay Capp and National Vice Chief Riley Berg
leading the way in an antique car.
Candy and flowered leis were thrown to parade spectators from the parade walkers.
The parade eventually wound its way to the Founders Park where Arrowmen experienced
BOB, or Best of the Best
After a picnic meal in Founders Park, Arrowmen attended the Founders Fair where they were able to attend the Order's tree planting, visit lodge booths, listen to a band, and play at TOAP. There was no shortage of activities or heat as the temperature rose to over 90º.
The afternoon was kicked off with the planting of tulip poplar tree in Founders Park. The ceremony was conducted by National Chief Clay Capp with the help of National Vice Chief Riley Berg and the region chiefs. The tree symbolizes the strength and unity of our brotherhood and begins a conference tradition to plant a tree on the host campus at all future conferences.
Lodges from across the nation had booths showcasing local flavors. Sequoyah Lodge #184 had an enormous booth featuring Dave, an infamous Arrowmen in their lodge. Shawnee Lodge #51 offered fried raviolis with marinara sauce for visitors. Many others offered food and trinkets.
Some of the many activities for Arrowmen included riding a mechanical bull, sliding down an inflatable playground or playing BSA Gladiator in an inflatable arena. The afternoon also brought the opportunity for Arrowmen to play 'Who wants to be a National Chief' which was based on the popular game, 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire.' Fun for all was the agenda.
Later that evening everyone gathered in Assembly Hall for the Theme Show entitled Passages. It was an inspirational show of self reflection. Afterward a ruck of Arrowmen ate ice cream and watched a spectacular fireworks show at the Goodman Gala.
