Best of the Best - "BOB"
As we all know, the Order of the Arrow is full of the best people,
ideas, and programs. On the morning of Founder's Day, selected
lodges from across the country will deliver short, 15-minute
presentations, workshops, and demonstrations about topics at
which they excel.
If a lodge is selected to do a presentation at the
Best of the Best, it will be
designated an official Founder's Lodge for NOAC 2000, recognized
with a special award, and the presenters will receive BOB caps.
YOUR LODGE COULD BE ONE OF THOSE SELECTED!
What is involved
If selected, your lodge provides:
- Six 15 minute sessions (5 min. between sessions) by the
lodge leadership, jam packed with fun and information
