The 'New' ThunderOwl Card
With our sights set on continual improvement, Mikanakawa Lodge is introducing a simplified Thunder Owl card for 2014. For those who may be unfamiliar with the Thunder Owl program, it is a program that was created a few years ago with the objective of allowing our most active members the convenience of prepaying for most or all lodge events at the beginning of the year when they are also paying their lodge dues.
Historically, we’ve had 3 levels of participation - Silver, Gold and Platinum - with each level covering a certain number of events. For 2014, we are offering one Thunder Owl card at a cost of $100 and it includes payment for the following events: Ordeal Staff – Dec 2013, Feb, May, Aug and Oct 2014 2014 Pow Wow and 2014 Fall Fellowship
The Thunder Owl card is on sale NOW and will be available until the 2014 Pow Wow. But here is what you need to know – if you purchase your Thunder Owl card prior to the December 2013 Ordeal, you will be paying for 4 Ordeals and getting the 5th one FREE! You can still purchase the card after the December Ordeal, but everyone loves a bargain so we suggest that you sign up prior to the December Ordeal to get the best deal.
Your Admin Team is also developing an e-mail system that will send Thunder Owl members an e-mail prior to each event that will allow you to simply click YES or NO to let us know if you are attending. Think about it – you won’t have to complete the registration form prior to each event. Just click YES or NO to reply to the Admin Team and you’re done! How’s that for convenient?
What about the Annual Dinner? We've decided that we need to have a registration dedicated just for that event. Why? Unlike other OA events, the Annual Dinner is open to members and non-members alike. Dedicated registration for this event will help us track which members are in attendance from each chapter – a very important benefit as we begin another year in our Journey to Excellence.
Remember, the Thunder Owl card is only available to current members who have paid their 2014 dues. If you are a new Ordeal member from the October or December Ordeal weekend, your 2014 dues are pre-paid and you can purchase a Thunder Owl card to prepay for attendance at next year’s events. We hope you will consider becoming one of our Thunder Owls. It’s a bargain. It’s convenient. And we want to see more of you in the year ahead. Join us!
