Hello fellow ceremony enthusiasts! As I promised I found the information on the
DRUM and while I was at it I found informtion on another great resource. Here
As I said, there are two books available to assist in coaching
ceremonies teams. The older book is called "The Drum" by Tischitnissohen. It is
available from John B. Forrest Jr. 8804 N. 34th ave. Phoenix, AZ 85021. This
book is more thought provoking...designed more to inspire than to provide
practical helps to the coach or ceremonialist.
Another book was distributed at NOAC this past summer called simply
"Coaching Ceremony Teams and Judging Competitions" copyrighted by Tuney 1992.
It is available from the following address:
Coaching and Judging Ceremony Teams
c/o Ron Simpson
6130 Union Village Dr.
Clifton, VA 22024-2230
The disclaimer in the front indicates that it is not an official publication of
the Order of the Arrow and that it is not part of the OA's official program
or literature. It is very useful however in training ceremony teams, and
unlike the Drum, it is not inspirational but a very effective tool for
training your teams.
There is a cost for these books..."The Drum" is $2.00 ea 1-9 copies and
$1.50 for 10 copies or more. "Coaching Ceremony Teams...." is $2.50 ea for 1-9
copies and $2.00 for 10 copies or more.
I hope that this information is helpful to all, and good luck to all of your
