The Capture the Flag game that was held on Saturday afternoon.

Our 2022 Bull Weekend was a successful and fun event for all! Around 140 attendees travelled with us in our Northwestern-themed weekend. We completed over 700 hours of service to prepare Flaming Arrow for the summer, and we enjoyed themed activities such as capture the flag, duct tape construction, and a video game tournament on Saturday night. 37 members joined our lodge this weekend, and five of our brothers sealed their membership with Brotherhood. This was the largest Bull Weekend in our lodge’s history, and it set us off to a good start for the new lodge year!

With 59 members in attendance, Uh-To-Yeh-Hut-Tee Lodge had a dominating weekend, finishing in the top 3 for almost every competition, including wins in many of those categories.
