NOAC Registration Allotment
NOAC attendance is limited to 8,000 arrowmen with a ratio of 1 adult for every 3 youth attending. Wahissa’s initial allotment is for 24 youth and 8 adults.
If more arrowmen apply than Wahissa has slots, arrowmen not chosen for a slot will be placed on a wait list for slots other lodges don’t claim. We expect to know the number of unclaimed slots by mid-January 2108.
How Much Is NOAC?
Estimated Cost is $850.00.
The fee for the event will include: registration, NOAC delegate patch, delegate shirts, delegate name tag, lodge delegate flaps, all meals, and transportation costs. The only extra money you’ll need is for the NOAC Trading Post and snacks.
With Application: $100
December 15, 2017: $250
March 1, 2018: $250
June 1, 2018: $250 (remaining balance)
Failure to meet the payment deadline without making other arrangements may result in your slot being transferred to an arrowman on the waitlist.
Application Deposit Refunds
The full $100 application deposit will be refunded if you are not awarded a slot or if you withdraw your application before Wahissa secures a slot for you.
There will be NO REFUNDS after your slot has been committed to.
Wahissa Travel Plans
Our plan is to leave Camp Raven Knob on Sunday, July 29 and arrive back at camp the evening of Saturday, August 4. Once travel plans are finalized more specific times will be provided.
Leadership Training Grant
To help defray the cost of NOAC, Wahissa Lodge has a limited number of NOAC Leadership Training Grants available to participants under the age of 21. You may find a NOAC Leadership Training Grant form HERE or at the council office. Forms are due to the Old Hickory Council Office on January 5, 2018.
Here is how to apply
Complete the attached NOAC application and return it along with a $100 application deposit by the ECM at Fall Fellowship on September 24, 2017.
Your deposit DOES NOT guarantee you a slot. It only puts you into consideration for the slots Wahissa Lodge is awarded.
You will be notified via First Class Letter by October 15 as to whether you have a slot or placed on the wait list.
