Comments:The theme was “WORTH THE TRIP”.   The National Order of the Arrow Committee issued the new Field Operations Guide in July 1993.  As a result, the position of Area Adviser was eliminated.  The Region Order of the Arrow Committee has now created the position of Area Coordinator.  This position carries most of the same responsibilities as the old Area Adviser position.  Special guests included Elizabeth Andre the 1994/95 Miss Teen Age America hailing from Aims, Iowa, National Order of the Arrow Committee Vice Chairman for Lodge Operations Del Loder, National Committee Members Esten Grubb and Bobby Rainwater, Region Committee Member Tom Tabb and Area Coordinator Jack Hess.. Also in attendance were past Region Chiefs Michael Celano (1988) and Louis Mounville III (1991).  Wiatava Lodge 13 won the Niganit and Cahuilla Lodge 127 won the Spirit and  Lodge Excellence Awards.  Wiatava Lodge 13 won Camp Promotion competition and the over-all India Affairs.  Cahuilla Lodge 127 won the overall sports. Attendance was 522 including 228 from Lodge 13, 130 from Lodge 45, 104 from Lodge 45, and 60 from Lodge 98.  The weather was warm and clear.  The shows were the best in several years and where highlighted by the emulation of the Pageant of the Masters using Norman Rockwell scout scenes.
