Piedmont Scout Reservation Day of Service
The Order of the Arrow and the Piedmont Council are having a day of service at the Piedmont Scout Reservation. The day of service is for all adult and youth scouters to come to the reservation and help prepare the facilities both for summer camp and for the OA Area 5 Dixie event. The OA Dixie event gives us a chance to showcase our camp to our entire Area 5 youth and adults. Well over 1000 people from 10 lodges are expected to attend this one weekend event. We need your help to help us prepare for this event. You may camp Friday and/or Saturday night. Breakfast Sat. morning is available for $5.00 per person. Register for breakfast on the OA website at https://eswau.net/beaverday. This event will end at 4pm Sat. so you are on your own for camping and meals after 4pm if you stay Sat. night.
When: Saturday March 2nd 2019 Event starts at 9am, lunch is at noon and the event ends at 4pm
Where: Piedmont Scout Reservation - Camp Bud Schiele Dining Hall
668 Boy Scout Rd.
Rutherfordton, NC 28139
Scoutmaster Dinner: The camping committee along with the OA Eswau Huppeday Lodge have decided to move the scoutmaster dinner from an evening event to a Scoutmaster luncheon on the day of service. Adult leaders will have a choice of one of the following:
- Join us just for lunch and a “What’s new at camp in 2019” presentation and receive one copy per unit of our 2019 Summer Camp Book. Two adult leaders per troop are welcome to the OA sponsored lunch. The OA sponsored Scoutmaster Luncheon is for 2 leaders only just as the Scoutmaster Dinner has been in the past. For meal count purposes, registration is required for everyone attending the Scoutmaster luncheon. Lunch will be from 1 to 2pm for this luncheon. Please register for the Scoutmaster Luncheon on the OA website or ctrl+click this link: https://eswau.net/beaverday
- For any other Scoutmasters and adult leaders and youth who are coming for the day and working to help with the day of service, you can register for a free lunch on the Eswau Huppeday lodge website or ctrl+click this link: https://eswau.net/beaverday
We must have a hard count of everyone attending so we can plan for meals as this is a catered lunch. This day can count towards service hours for your troop. The OA lunch for leaders and scouts will be from noon to 1pm.
If you registered as one of the two leaders for the SM dinner do not include yourself in the adult and youth count on the OA site.
*If you need any special dietary needs please make a note on your registration form.
Meals for the Scoutmaster Luncheon are courtesy of the Eswau Huppeday Order of the Arrow Lodge.

To plan for meals, registrations are required and due no later than Feb. 20th 2019.
