2014 SR-9 Section Conclave
April 25th - 27th
Moundville Archaeological Park, Moundville, AL

Conclave is just a few days away. Here are some last minute notes from the Contingent Leader......

What To Do Upon Arrival

Please bring a copy of Parts A & B of your health forms to check-in. If you are a youth, please make sure that your form is signed by your parents or guardians. Please make sure that you include a copy of your medical insurance card with your form. It makes everything go down smoothly in the case of an accident. After you are checked-in, you can start to set up your tents. Once finished, you can assist other brothers set up their gear and get used to the facilities such as the Egwa Trading Post, water buffalos, etc. Mr. Schellack is bringing two Lodge pop-up shelters and tables for us to use as our dining facilities so I would like for us to help him set them up for our contingent.


The location for Conclave is the Moundville Archaeological Park in Moundville Alabama (which is right outside of Tuscaloosa) the exact location is 634 Mound Park, Moundville, AL 35474. Take exit 71A from I-20E/I-59S and travel South on Highway 69 toward Moundville for about 13 miles. Look for a right turn onto Mound Parkway which will lead you into the park.

If you still need a ride, we have several drivers that will be leaving the Volunteer Service Center throughout the day on Friday. John Crew,, 404-483-9448 and Jason Becker will be leaving at 12:00 pm. Geoffrey Cox will be leaving between 1:30 pm and 2:00 pm. Please let us know via email before Friday if you want to ride with them as each driver has limited space for riders.

If you are having transportation issues due to school, let us know as well via email, so we can try to figure something out for you. Lastly Mr. Crew is bringing the program trailer with him to Conclave. If you would like to leave your stuff inside the trailer, please let him know. He will be at the VSC from 10:30 am -12:00 pm Friday morning.

Things to bring

Make sure that you bring your own tents, a camp chair, and eating utensils. We will be doing jamboree style camping and I want to make sure everyone enjoys themselves given the limited facilities. Please remember that we will be sleeping on an active archaeological site so be mindful of the ground below you. The camp has already asked us to try to avoid using stakes for our tents. If you have to use them, they can not go deeper than 1 in. into the ground. With this being said, try to leave some extra weight in your tents during the daytime. A few tents blew away during the planning day and it's not fun at all. There is no electricity in our campsite so please plan accordingly. Bring portable chargers for your phones if you have one. Here's an unofficial map of the Conclave facilities. As always please follow the direction of the host Lodge upon arrival.
