LODGE 104 DRUM SESSION SCHEDULE
In addition to Conclave, we have a full weekend of AIA activities at the Council Cuboree at Camp Durant, 22-24 April.For any singers and dancers who would like to participate, there is also a joint Mawat-Shakori District Camporee at Camp Durant the weekend of 29 April – 1 May.
Here is a recap of the Drum Session dates for 2016. Note that there have been several changes. Please mark your calendars accordingly. There may be a few more changes later in the year due to work or other scheduling conflicts; some changes may be on short notice. When possible, I will re-schedule rather than cancel a drum session.
Drum sessions will be at the Troop 402 Scout Hut in Durham unless advised otherwise. Participants should check Slack or the Lodge website AIA page(s) regularly for changes to date, time, and/or location. Since some Brothers are not yet registered to the AIA or Singing channels at Lodge104.slack.com, we will continue to use the drum listserver and email for the foreseeable future.

Troop 402 Scout Hut – Durham
Attend your third drum session and receive a FREE drumstick kit!
Dancers (and those who would like to be) are always welcome at any drum practice. A dancer who is familiar with Native American powwow songs will be a better dancer.
Lodge MONTHLY Drum Meet Schedule for 2016 will be posted shortly on the Lodge website (www.lodge104.net) and on Slack (Lodge104.Slack.com). Watch for any changes! Are you signed-up on the Lodge Drum List Server? (firstname.lastname@example.org). Unless otherwise posted, Lodge Drum sessions will be at the Troop 402 Scout Hut, 847 Glenco Road near Research Triangle Park in Durham, 2:30-4:30 PM.
As always, we want to be respectful of the drum and the Native American cultures that are shared with us. Please dress accordingly whether for a practice or a more formal occasion. Scout uniforms are O.K. but not required at practices. Long pants are always appropriate to sit at the drum. No frayed cuffs or blown-out knees and no open-toe shoes, flip-flops, or tank tops, please.
