2019 DIXIE FELLOWSHIP REGISTRATION

Don’t miss out on the chance to compete and cheer on your brothers in a weekend of fun filled events.  This year we will travel to Camp Bud Schiele, hosted by Eswau Huppeday Lodge for the Dixie Fellowship, April 26-28, 2019. The theme this year will be “Honor the Tradition – Strengthen the Ties” Our lodge theme is “Dixie on Deck.”  Please bring any accessories you have. The Unali’Yi Lodge delegate fee for this year’s Dixie Fellowship will be $65.00.  The fee includes section delegate fee, all meals, programs, delegate patch, BSA Insurance and Dixie pin.  Unali’Yi items include a Spirit T shirt, ONE SET OF Dixie Lodge flaps, spirit item, and dinner Friday night in our campsite between 6:00-6:30 PM. Registrations and pre orders after January 25, 2019 will not be guaranteed. There is no guarantee that there will be any extra items for sale during the event. Along with the pre-registration form, each attendee is responsible for filling out and turning in a BSA “Annual Health and Medical Record” parts A and B. A doctor’s examination is not required. Please turn in your completed Med Form when turning in your registration. This form is available on the Lodge website.

No delegate may attend the Dixie Fellowship without this new version of the medical form with copy of insurance card – THIS NEEDS TO BE TUNRED IN WITH YOUR REGISTRATION. Participants must be registered with the BSA and be a member in good standing of Unali’Yi Lodge (Dues paid for 2019). All registrations are subject to the approval of the Lodge Key 3. Anyone may pre-order Dixie items whether attending or not. If you will not be present, you must make arrangements for someone to pick up your order at the Dixie Fellowship. (Please indicate who will pick up your order prior to our arrival at Camp Barstow). The only way to be sure and get the items you want is to preorder them.

There is no electricity in the campsites, so those requiring CPAP machines should plan to use batteries or plan for alternate sleeping arrangements. We also need to know about any special dietary needs prior to the January 10 so we can communicate with the host lodge. Participants are expected to provide their own tents and chairs. PLEASE CARPOOL WITH YOUR UNIT AND CHAPTER MEMBERS.

Unali’Yi delegates are expected to participate with the Lodge contingent during the Dixie Fellowship. If you would like to be part of the Lodge Ceremonies Team, Dance Team, Sing Team, or compete in Individual Dance, contact our Ceremonies or Dance Team Chairman whose number contact info is on our lodge website.
