Spring BBQ and Officer Elections
June 8th, 2015, at Joaquin Miller Park
At the close of a particularly event heavy year, Hungteetsepoppi gathered for it's annual Barbecue and Officer Elections at Joaquin Miller Park on June 7th, 2015. At the start of the evening, adult and youth leaders gathered at the picnic site for the group meal. The barbecue began just after 7:30pm, commencing the eating of eating of circular-beef sandwiches and elongated sausage products. After the meal, the youth members broke off from the rest of the lodge to begin officer election.
This year, Lodge Chief Carson S. stepped down along with Lodge Officers Scott N., Omar AR., and Russell R. In the following election, lodge members elected Mitch W. as the new Lodge Chief, with Ben K., Ben S. and Ayden R. acting as the new Vice-Chiefs. During the election, Section Chief Clayton H. gave fellow candidate Mitch W. an intense race for the Lodge Chief position. In what initially ended as a tied vote for both candidates, the vote was finally recast after a three-and-a-half minute discussion, a round of rock-paper-scissors and a lip-synching competition. Ultimately the lodge members elected Mitch Winters to the Lodge Chief position. In all due seriousness, Ben Kenworthy was a very close contender for the lodge chief position and deserves some recognition.
At the end of the barbecue, the previous lodge chiefs were given commemorative leadership neckerchiefs, and the new ones were welcomed into their positions. As the event came to a close, Lodge Chief Mitch Winters lead the lodge in the traditional closing song, and the Lodge gathered for a group photo. Thank you to all the adults that generously contributed their time to preparing food, cooking and organizing the event!
Section W3S Conclave
After almost a year of planning, Hungteetsepoppi and the neighboring lodge of the Alameda Council, Kaweah, hosted the annual conclave at Coast Guard Island. From April 24th to 26th, hundreds of arrowmen of Section W3-S flocked to the event. This island is located in the estuary between Alameda and Oakland, connected with only a bridge spanning from it to Oakland. This island is also the headquarters of all Coast Guard operations along the Western seaboard. With many fields and numerous fascinating amenities, this special venue proved to be perfect for a very special theme, the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.
