Canotka Chapter Flaming Arrow

Tap Out was a great success despite a bit of rain. The ceremony team did an outstanding job and Canotka Chapter put on a spectacular show for the 2nd straight year. A public version of the legend was played, Chris Tart did an excellent job on the videos, the sound was outstanding, flaming arrows, huge campfire, and a return to the old style tap out.

But more important than a fabulous show, Canotka Chapter tapped out 14 candidates for induction into the Order of the Arrow.

Put your mouse over the small pictures to get a larger view.

I looked at the old site yesterday. Decided I didn't like it. It wasn't real clean or cross browser compliant, so I re-wrote it tonight.

All news prior to October has been removed.
