Humans of NOAC: Arrowman ends summer ArrowTour trip with stop at NOAC
By Matt Bernotas and Greg Marsano
With over 15,000 Arrowmen attending NOAC this year, there are bound to be some incredible stories. This week, the #HumansOfNOAC campaign will highlight some of those noteworthy stories.
This summer’s ArrowTour brought the excitement of our Centennial to more than 40,000 Scouts across the country but for Logan Greene, that excitement was amped up with adrenaline as they experienced excitement of a different sort, courtesy of a tornado!
C-6A Section Chief Logan Greene, a member of the ArrowTour Central road crew, was driving with other ArrowTour crew to Camp Loud Thunder in Illinois City, Illinois, last month when they stopped for dinner at a Subway restaurant. As they ate, the cashier received a frantic telephone call from her manager warning of a tornado just a few miles down the road.
“The cashier became frantic and directed the entire ArrowTour staff into the back of the store,” Logan recalled. “All nine of us had to bunker down in a small cooler and freezer room until the storm passed.”
Although Logan’s work on ArrowTour brought him to 27 stops around the Midwest, Logan is no stranger to travel, as he is a licensed pilot and has career aspirations to become an airline pilot.
A Vigil Honor member from Nischa Chuppecat Lodge and a two-term section chief, Logan said that he will particularly remember the personal connections he made with Arrowmen on ArrowTour. At this historic conference, you can find him at the ArrowTour experience at the ArrowTour Expo in The Hub, where he’ll excitedly share the experience with each NOAC guest.
