Start Planning for Section Conclave!
This section consists of about 3,500 OA members from our lodge and 5 others, and includes regions in the great states of Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Each September the lodges in the section hold a section-wide weekend event called the Section Conclave. This is basically a large gathering of members from all lodges in the section. What's great about the Section Conclave is that it offers a fun, action-packed program while still being affordable and open to any and all Arrowmen who want to do something truly awesome in their scouting career.
This year, the Section Conclave will be held September 13-15 at the Camp Decorah, Holmen WI. At the conclave, there will be many great training sessions led by knowledgeable trainers, a dunk tank, patch trading, an awesome campfire/show, and so much more. Along with this you get the chance to meet hundreds of people from other lodges. The cost for this weekend is only $25, a fraction of the cost of most other regional events. This small price tag truly includes all the food, fun, and fellowship you can handle in one weekend. A $10 late-fee applies to late registrations.
Make sure to check back for more information about our Kon Wapos Express. We will again be offering a bus for transportation to the conclave. Additional fees will be necessary.
