Last evening eight new candidates were “tapped out” to become members of the Order of the Arrow. Order of the Arrow, or OA, is the honor society for scout troops. It’s members must have advanced through the scout skills, have significant number of camping nights (15+) and be elected by the members of the troop.
It’s this last requirement I like most. Fact is, not everyone makes it. Failure is part of life and this is an easy, inconsequential area that the dudes can fail and learn to deal with failure.
