NOAC Power Tags

Posted on 15 August 2009 by admin

NOAC Power TagsOne of the extra activities at the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) were the exchanging of “Power Tags”.

Each participant and staff member recieved a sheet of 15 “Power Tags”. There were five different colors of tags that corresponded to the four regions and another for staff members. Each tag held a unique code that corresponded to the individual they were issued to. Each participant was to exchange tags with other participants and have at least a 10 minute chat with them about the meaning of the theme “The Power of One.”

Now that NOAC is over, participants need to log onto www.NOACPower.org and enter the ID codes listed on the tags that were collected at NOAC. Once you enter the code you will see the corresponding individual’s email address so you can contact and stay in touch with the folks you met at NOAC and conversed with. As an added bonus, if you echanged at least 10 Power Tags, you can select between a challenge coin and an arrowhead necklace.

Make sure you visit http://www.NOACPower.org before September in order to recieve your gift and reconnect with the folks you met.

2009 NOAC Saturday – Day 1

Posted on 01 August 2009 by Dan

2009 NOACThe National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) kicked off today at Indiana University. If you aren’t one of the approximately 7,000 arrowmen in attendance, you can still get a feel for what is happening! The NOAC Staff is producing a website called NOAC 2009 Live!, where you can follow what is happening at NOAC day by day. According to Jeremy Yamaguchi, NOAC Live! Chairman, the teams are visiting and reporting from numerous areas of the conference day and night covering every aspect of the conference’s activities so you at home can get an accurate picture of conference life.

Saturday NOAC Highlights:

Welcome from the National Officers
Read the welcome message from Jack O’Neill, the 2009 National Chief of the Order of the Arrow, and Dan Higham, the National Vice Chief, to all of the participants at NOAC.

Participant Award
The 2009 NOAC Participation Award seeks to broaden the NOAC experience. Only NOAC 2009 guests completing the award requirements will earn this very special pin.

GuestPics
Did you take some pics while traveling? Did you take more pics while moving in? Arrowmen can submit photos of their trip and their experience at NOAC and upload them to share with ours.

A Day in the Life of Jack O’Neill
With the exception of starting his day with a bowl of Lucky Charms, our National Chief’s average day is never typical.

Welcome from the NOAC Live! Chairman
Jeremy Yamaguchi, NOAC Live! Chairman, gives a sneak peak of what to expect for this year’s conference.

The CornerstONE
Or, if you’d like something you can print and read, copies of the NOAC newspaper, The CornerstONE, are also available online.

NOAC: Important Notice Regarding Food Preparation at Founder’s Day

Posted on 11 April 2009 by admin

Oscar Mayer Wienermobile at NOACThis notice appeared in the April National Events Information Email List email.

During the upcoming 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference many lodges are planning to take part in the various activities during the Founders Day events. In the past, lodges have decided to create a display or booth which represented specific items, traditions, and customs that were unique to their home council and lodge. In doing so, some lodges have prepared foods and beverages representative of their region. While this has been a great way for many lodges to share their unique qualities about their home with the rest of the country, this tradition will be changing this year.

Due to the increased awareness and concern for the restrictions and regulations governing the delivery and preparation of food for public consumption, the conference management has elected to not allow lodges and individual participants to deliver and prepare foods to the 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference. As an alternative, lodges will be able to distribute commercially prepared and prepackaged food products that do not require any refrigeration or preparation. In addition, open container beverages will not be allowed to be served.

Thank you for your understanding with these policy changes and we hope you will have a great experience at the 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference.

Picture was taken at the National Order of the Arrow Conference in 2000. Tichora Lodge got the Wienermobile to make an appearance at Founder’s Day and served up Hot Dogs to hungry Arrowmen.
