There's a new item at Bobwhite Blather: 'NOAC 2015: It Starts With Us'

More than fifteen thousand Arrowmen - Scouting's best - converge on the campus
of Michigan State University in East Lansing starting today to take part in the
largest Scouting event in the United States other than the National Jamboree.
The National Order of the Arrow Conference, or NOAC, gives these young men the
opportunity to participate in a wide range of leadership enhancing, life-skill
development and fun activities while living on a college campus for a week.

Scouts travel and live with those from their home lodge but will meet and
participate with others from around the country in a wide variety of activities
intended to not only help them be better lodge and chapter officers and leaders
but to be of service to their troops and others in Scouting. Training sessions
include subjects like high adventure, camping, ceremonies, American Indian
activities and supporting their local units. Historical exhibits give attendees
a glimpse of Scouting's origins and the opportunity to see items such as
memorabilia from the first hundred years of the OA. There's plenty of fun, too,
with sports and competitions that challenge Scouts physically and mentally, and
nightly arena shows that feature keynote speeches and entertainment in a
once-in-a-lifetime setting.
