Scouts and Adults, 

Congratulations to Ryan Biesty, Kai Jarmon, Brandon Le, and Justin Yun who were inducted into the Order of the Arrow after completing their Ordeal at the Cutter Scout Reservation on April 13. The Ordeal is the first step toward full membership in the Order of the Arrow. During the Ordeal, candidates sleep apart from other campers, maintain silence, receive small amounts of food, and work on camp improvement projects.

Congratulations also to Jacob Frank who achieved Brotherhood membership during the Ordeal Weekend. After 10 months of service as an Ordeal member and fulfilling certain requirements, an Arrowman may take part in the Brotherhood ceremony, which places further emphasis on the ideals of Scouting and the Order of the Arrow. Completion of this ceremony signifies full membership in the Order of the Arrow. 

Thanks to Caelan Conant, Ohlone Lodge Vice Chief of Inductions, and Tim Cyron for their service throughout the Ordeal Weekend.
