WHAT - The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting's second-largest national event. Over 8,000 Arrowmen from across the nation gather both in person and virtually for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure and fun!
WHY - To create fellowship with OA members Nationwide. In 2020 the Order of the Arrow will celebrate the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) at Michigan University from August 3rd through August 8th, 2020. NOAC is an awesome event attended by Arrowmen from all over the country. Attendees will stay in the college dorm rooms and eat in the college cafeteria. During NOAC attendees will have the opportunity to attend a wide range of training, outdoor adventure and activities, nightly shows, patch trading and much more.
Narragansett Council (Tulpe Lodge) has received an allotted number of slots to attend NOAC in 2018. We will be requesting additional slots, however, there is no guarantee that they will be granted.
WHO - Order of the Arrow Members - We anticipate that there will be a 3:1 Youth to Adult Ratio for Lodge Contingents. This ratio will not impact youth attendance.
HOW - If you are interested in going to NOAC starting on March 1, 2019 you will be able to register on the Narragansett Council web site and make a $100 initial payment.
The plan is to start to have monthly meetings starting in December 2019 to make plans for NOAC.
The estimated cost for NOAC 2020 is $1,600. This includes the NOAC conference fee, food, lodging and round trip transportation to NOAC.
