With Conclave just a few days out, I have some last-minute housekeeping announcements.

First, be sure to bring a tent, as there will be no lodging provided. In the need of special circumstances, something can be arranged. Please contact me at

Next, if you’re planning on running for Section Chief, Vice Chief, or Secretary, please be sure to have a letter from your council’s Scout Executive (or the Scout executive’s designee) submitted to Mr. Johnson ( by noon on Saturday at the latest.

There will be no dinner provided on Friday night, but there will be a cracker barrel. We’ll be bringing in a food truck that will be selling cheese steaks, chips, and drinks for $10-13 during check-in.

Please remember to pack your class-A, class-B, tent with groundsheet and rain fly, and a swimsuit.

I look forward to seeing everyone in Alaska, and to making this the best Conclave yet! Please send you Venue questions to and Program questions to

I look forward to seeing everyone on Friday!
