In case you weren't on the Webinar Sunday night, it was announced that we have merged the lodges in the Michigan Crossroads Council into a new lodge named Michigami.

We're keeping 29 as the lodge number (formerly Noquet's number).

There's a contest for the new Lodge Flap and below are the details.  It's open to youth and adults (I asked), so get creative!
