Section SR-9 Conclave
Each spring, at a nearby Scout camp, the Lodges of Section SR-9 meet at an annual Conclave. The word “conclave” means “a secret gathering”, but don’t let the name fool you — hundreds of people will be there, from twelve lodges. Conclave is a fun weekend of Arrowmen gathered for training, and inter-lodge competition at the Section level. Any Arrowmen in good standing with the Egwa Tawa Dee lodge is eligible to attend conclave. Conclave begins Friday evening with an opening arena show. The next morning is spent training members on a variety of topics relevant to the OA, and helpful for you as a leader in your home unit. In the afternoon, all bets are off as members take part in competitions of all sorts, and relax on the midway. The day ends with a closing arena show.
The participant fee is $39.00, if paid by March 27th, $57.00 after March 27th and you will not be guaranteed a flap, patch, or t-shirt.

ArrowTour is one of many programs and initiatives that comprise a year-long celebration of the Order of the Arrow’s centennial anniversary. In the summer of 2015, four delegations of youth Arrowmen will travel to council camps and Scouting events to bring our national centennial experience to Scouts, Arrowmen, and communities throughout the country.
ArrowTour will provide opportunities to reflect, connect, and discover the Order’s Centuries of Service, both past and future. The Order of the Arrow is excited to partner with councils to provide this program accessory at Boy Scout summer camps, service centers, and Scouting events.

Arrow Tour will be visiting two camps in Section SR-9 this summer.
Commemorate our organization’s centennial by working to complete the Arrowman Service Award!
The purpose of the Arrowman Service Award (ASA) is to encourage Arrowmen to recommit themselves to the ideals of the Order, increase their level of service to their local unit and council, and participate in the 100th anniversary celebration of the OA. The award will have three categories of criteria with various requirements that Arrowmen can complete. These include components on personal growth, service to Scouting, and participation in the centennial celebration. Those completing the prescribed requirements will receive a patch that can be worn on the Order of the Arrow sash.
