2020 Winter Banquet


The weather from Reed City southwards is forecast to include freezing rain starting after noon today, and we’re getting reports of rain already near Grand Rapids.  While the roads are in decent condition for travel currently, we do not think it’s appropriate to hold the event when the forecast conditions show travel southward from Cadillac afterwards will not be safe.

We have tentatively rescheduled the event for Saturday February 22 at the same location.  We will issue refunds for anyone who can’t make the new date. Please contact us if that applies to you.

We apologize for the late notice, but Michigan weather is unpredictable as always.

Yours in brotherhood,

— Your lodge executive committee and advisors

Brothers! Come celebrate this holiday season filled with fellowship and a groovy feel from the ’60s at the new location for Winter Banquet! Contrary to the previous year’s location, this year’s banquet will be at the Fox Hill Event Center in Cadillac, Michigan on Saturday, January 18th, 2020, starting at noon.

The cost will be $25 prior to January 6th, and $30 until January 13. Walk-in registration will be $35 with limited space. This cost also covers the buffet-style meal provided by Blue Heron Cafe from Cadillac, Michigan.

Special meal options can be selected at Registration. Keep an eye on the facebook page and this site for special updates! Remember, the 2020 Annual Pass is now available!

Offical information and registration available here.

2020 Dues and Annual Pass

The Annual Pass for 2020 is now available! And if you haven’t already paid your 2020 dues, you’re almost out of time to renew without a gap in your membership.

Dues cover the 2020 calendar year and are $15 and are due by January 1, 2020.

This year’s Annual Pass is $70 and includes all of the following:

  • 2020 Dues ($15 by itself)
  • A special commemorative patch to brag that you’re a 2019 annual pass holder (new design pending)
  • 2020 Winter Banquet ($25)
  • 2020 Leadership Development Day North ($5)
  • 2020 Leadership Development Day South ($5)
  • 2020 Spring Conclave ($20)
  • 2020 Witahemui Weekend ($5)
  • 2020 Fall Conclave ($20)

So that’s $15+$25+$5+$5+$5+$20+$20 = $95 value, for the price of $70. You save $25 on the price of attending all of these events, plus you get a patch!

To check if you’ve already paid your dues or not, put your BSA member ID into the box in the sidebar and click ‘Go’. If you haven’t paid yet, it’ll give you a link to pay (where you can also buy an annual pass if you want one).

If you already paid your 2020 dues but didn’t get an annual pass and now want one, you can do that for $55 as an Annual Pass Upgrade. ( <– Click there)
