Ceremonies Team Work 

Cross Over Cermony Script: Cross Over Script 2010.doc

Pre-Ordeal Ceremony Script: Pre-Ordeal Ceremony Script.pdf

Master Link to more ceremonies scripts: http://www.canotka.org/ceremony/ceremony.html (most are passcoded, so that you can not get into them without being a member) This is where the Ordeal, Brothehood and Vigil ceremonies scripts are found. Some Advise: Do be sure to stay away from those scripts you really have no business seeing. Your time will surely come one day and ruining the experience for yourself would be like opening gifts when you already know what is in the package. :)

Spirit of the Arrow Booklets: Spirit of the Arrow.pdf


Brotherhood Idea #1: USe the following letters along with the above spirit of the arrow booklets to help guide new Ordeal members until they become Brotherhood. Adjust the following letters for dates etc... Perhaps batch the mailings so that you can mail them timely leading up to the first opportunity that they can achieve the Brotherhood experience.








Brotherhood Idea #2: Mail each candidate a Brotherhood help sheet so they can be reminded of the Brotherhood and study this "cheat" sheet so that they can know the answers when called upon for the Questioning.
