OWB Ichetucknee Tubing Trip!
By Howling Wolf
Order of the White Buffalo Ichetucknee Tubing Trip
Tubing and dinner on Saturday, June 1, 2013
Optional Camping Friday (May 31st) & Saturday (June 1st)
This event is for tribes that have completed two service projects and have earned at least 550 coup points. New tribes need only 450 coup points and two service projects. The Federation will provide medium or large vinyl tubes for both father and children in the qualified tribe. Also, dinner on Saturday will be provided and paid for by the Federation for those tribes that have earned the OWB distinction.
It is the responsibility of the families to make reservations at the campsite if they plan to camp either Friday and/or Saturday. http://www.ichetuckneecanoeandcabins.net (866 224-2064). The earlier you make registration prior to the event the better availability you will have. Furthermore, each family will have to pay admission at the state park. ($5 per person)
The park opens at 8am. Therefore, we would want to leave to go tubing soon after 7:00am to try and beat the crowds. There are a limited number of people (750) allowed to start at the south entrance.
If you are in a qualified tribe or, your tribe is close to becoming one. Note: Alex’s Lemonade Stand is a service project. Please go to http://www.timucuan.org/ web site and register in circle bridge. There are three events: large tube, medium tube (100 pounds or less), and head count for the Saturday night dinner.
Note: First timers will get a Triangle Patch for OWB and date patch, otherwise you will get a date patch. If this is your first time making OWB, email TallyKeeper@timucuan.org with “Need Triangle OWB Patch” in the subject of the email and include your names and tribe to receive the OWB triangle patch during the awards ceremony.
Hope to see you there,
Summer Bowling 2013!

Native Sons and Daughters complete two Community Service Projects
By Flaming Arrow on 12/19/2012
The local Native Sons and Daughters program (formerly Indian Princess/Indian Guides) recently completed two separate Community Service Projects benefiting the Mandarin and Julington Creek communities. First, the weekend before Thanksgiving, the tribes visited their respective neighborhoods and collected an amazing 1732 pounds of food which was donated to the Mandarin Food Bank. They followed that up with collecting more than 75 toys which were donated to the local Toys for Tots Campaign. Our unique father/child program fosters positive relationships and helps to build well rounded community leaders of tomorrow.
