Official Web Site Info
This was the Official 1998 National Order of the Arrow Conference web
The main goals of this web site were to communicate official, approved
information about NOAC 1998 to Arrowmen who have web access, and
to provide a look at the Conference to those back home.
The site was produced by the web team
of the NOAC Communications and Public Relations Committee. The
committee was led by Conference Vice Chief Lance McAlister, and
Lead Adviser Bob Szczys. The web team was chaired by Doug Kupec, and
advised by Joe Glenski.
The 1998 NOAC was the very first National Conference to use a web site!
Planning for this project started in March of 1997, with the first staff
being recruited at the National Jamboree later that summer. The web
site budget was approved in September, and the first pages went
on line in November 1997.
As part of its mission, the
web team worked
live from the conference
to provide a look at what was happening to those back home. During
the event the team took thousands of pictures and
created over 200 pages, posting daily updates all week.
With the conclusion of NOAC, the site went through a
transition to become the Official National Order of the Arrow Web Site.
During the week of the conference and the following weekend
(August 2-9, 1998),
the Official NOAC web site saw a total of 117,706 hits,
averaging over 700 hits per hour. The peak single day saw 23,118 hits,
or about 963 per hour.
Prior to the Conference, from November 1997 to
August 2, 1998, the Official NOAC web site had been
available for a little over eight months.
The site saw a total of 125,564 hits over that time, averaging
497 requests a day or about 20 per hour. It had been visited from
a total of 10,545 different computer hosts.
