The N.E. Division Had another great winter outing this year, we teamed up with the S.E. Division. which totaled up to 40 that attended our event. We started the event with a great meal of chicken & dumplings, & Dennis Faulkner's (Long Knife) famous chili & fixings.
Followed by a time of worship & devotion outside under the stars around a large campfire the speaker was Choctaw after the devotion Tyler Horton Gave his heart to Jesus he decided to keep his sights in things up above and we congratulate him on his new decision. The rest of Friday night was spent on earning & teaching the archery merit taught by Bob Triphan (Two Forks) & the lashing merit taught by Kevin Levart. The leather crafters were hard at work making small pouches, tomahawk sheaths. The craft was ramroded by Paul Keys (Guppy) & Chris Gusman. Some others were making moccasins & other various crafts, Joe Levart made fresh ground coffee & beeswax candles. Dennis & Joe made us a midnight snack 14 dozen of the finest cookies you have ever tasted when it was said &done on Fri. night it was 1:30 .am.

We had a conservation agent Conrad Mallady which went over the proper use & safety of the bow He set us up atop notch archery lane in our gym.
