Comments:Wiatava 13 won the Niganit and the Lodge Excellence Award. This was the first year the Spirit Award was given and it went to both Wiatava 13 and Navajo 98. The food was provided by the Navy and was very good. We ate at the officers club. Most attendees stayed in dorms. The weather was warm and clear. Joe Lavendar of the Washington Redskins was a special guest. He is a member of Pang Lodge. Gene Moore of Pang Lodge started the year as Lay Adviser but resigned for personal reasons. Tom Tabb, the Associate Adviser, was appointed to fill the term. There was a neckerchief issued. Attendance was 585 paid.
