The Day it Poured
The afternoon of our second full day of fun in Ames turned
into a scurry to find shelter. Once again many Arrowmen in full outfit for ceremonies or
dance were caught in the rain. I say once again since the 1994 NOAC at Purdue University
had a similar downpour on such a day. Even with rain, the spirits of those at the
conference were still high.
Tuesdays theme is American Indian Events and Induction
and Ceremonial Events. This is depicted in our main graphic and in our coverage for the
day. Throughout the rainy afternoon some Arrowmen decided that it would be wise to take a
shower. Others outfitted themselves and danced to contentment. Still others participated in
ceremonies. There was also a pictorial cancellation of two different envelopes available
at the Trading Post.
The "History" Show was a great event as Arrowmen
learned a small part about the vast history of E. Urner Goodman, the founder of the Order.
The excitement in the show clearly had risen to a new level from the previous show. It is
clear that NOAC is in full swing.
Tuesday brings us to the middle of the conference and with it
many exciting events. The American Indian Show tonight was a sight to see as Arrowmen
danced, sang, and drummed their way into NOAC history.
The greatest part of any NOAC is the lasting friendships
that are made throughout the week. Every NOAC many of the same faces and names can be
seen. It is one of the greatest ideals of the Order and of brotherhood.
For the final full day of NOAC we will cover the Founders
Day Celebration. This is truly a great event of NOAC. Please come back tomorrow and take a
look at what happens.
Yours in Service,
Web Team Chairman
