I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this website.
I hope that you have benefited from our hard work and dedicated efforts
in providing you with entertainment, up-to-date information, memorabilia,
and many memories to view from the comfort of your home. The Support
Services committee has enjoyed cheerfully laboring for you, our Brothers
here, as well as those back home.
I would like to especially thank Matthew Dodson, the Web Team Chairman, and Tyson Ford, Editor-in-Chief
of The Dream Catcher. The Web
Team has worked hard to make daily updates on the 2003 Indian Summer
web site, which can be found from the national web site (www.oa-bsa.org).
In addition, I would like to extend an enormous thank you to Jonathan
Hardin and Linley Collins of the Tech Services Committee for delivering the finest Opening and Closing
Gatherings in the history of OA national Native American conferences. Their hard work and determination in entertaining, inspiring, and
motivating all of us at the 2003 Indian Summer has truly paid off.
This conference would not have been such a huge success if it wasn't
for the members of Tsali Lodge, our service lodge. This small group of
dedicated, hard-working Arrowmen were always willing to lift the burdens
of their brothers, serving around the clock to provide all physical and
travel arrangements, and much, much more. And finally, a big thank you to the entire
Support Services committee for your hard work in executing this Indian Summer!
I hope to see each and every one of you again at NOAC in 2004!
Yours in Brotherhood,
Program Vice Chief of Support Services
