Congratulations to our 2018 Section Officers!
Sikhs Mox Lamonti
You’ve been to Conclave before… but have you ever been to one outside the continental US? That’s what almost 200 Arrowmen got to experience this September at Section W-1N’s annual Conclave hosted by the Nanuk Lodge at Camp Gorsuch in Anchorage, Alaska.
The 2016 national event, NEXT: A New Century, will be truly unlike anything the Order of the Arrow has ever seen. Youth leaders from across the nation will gather at Indiana University from July 30 to August 3, 2016 in order to learn, grow and be inspired as we proceed into a new century of service. This hands-on, high-energy event will focus on membership, program and innovation at the local level, which will subsequently empower participants to return home and be powerful agents of change.
What a fantastic weekend we just shared together as we celebrated A Journey’s End and A New Beginning. You helped us set an all-time record with 477 Arrowmen in attendance! Make sure you continue on the journey by building upon knowledge you gained this weekend and spread it to your lodge, chapter, and unit.
This is the annual gathering of the lodge members in our Section. There will be training, FUN, fellowship, FUN, great food, FUN, a zipline and most of all FUN!
April 24th-26th and if you sign up now you will save $15.00. See you there!
Early bird registration special ends on April 12, online registration ends April 21.

Section W-1N is a section that spans a huge area full of a large diversity of people. Once a year, Arrowmen from all corners of our section and get to meet up at a Conclave; this year, our conclave is being hosted by Sikhs Mox Lamonti at camp Fire Mountain on April 24th-26th. 2015 is a huge year for the Order of the Arrow, it’s the year we become a centennial organization, our 100th birthday! Of course our Conclave will be showing just why this organization has stood the text of time; it’ll be jam-packed with events you don’t want to miss.
