Thanks for your comments, so far...
Our biggest DISCUSSION here has been using the candidates to put up camp...
We aren't getting but about 70 or so members plus 100 or so candidates for
the Spring Ordeal. Many of us (Adults & Youth) feel like we are sort of
abusing the candidates.
The feeling is that we run them sort of in the ground getting camp up, so
that many do not come back to any other OA activities....
Our Lodge has about 500 members and we can only get the 70 to 100 out for
an Ordeal. Is this kind of attendance common???
In our chapter (1 of 9 in the Lodge) we try to encourage the new boys to
come to chapter meetings. The meetings aren't just meetings.. We work
on Outfits and Ceremonies, etc.. But, depending on the Unit, many of the
boys just won't come....
