What are you doing May 15-17?
If you didn’t say Section Conclave, try again!
Conclave is a yearly gathering of all lodges in Section C6B for a weekend of fun, friendly competition, and fellowship. This year, our Centennial, the Order of the Arrow is celebrating our 100th Anniversary and we invite you to celebrate it at Conclave!
Section Conclave is an opportunity to HAVE FUN at a Founder’s Fair (competitions, games, and fellowship), get trained on a variety of OA topics, compete in various American Indian Activities (AIA), and elect new Section Officers for the coming year. Miami Lodge will be hosting Conclave 2015 at the Woodland Trails Scout Reservation.
The cost is only $35 (before May 2nd) which pays for top-notch food, training sessions, AIA awards, special guests, all the fun stuff you'll get to experience and more. Training sessions include Awesome-ifying Chapter/Lodge Activities, Patch Design 101, Dance Styles, Ceremonial Outfits, and a bunch more.
Returning this year is a silent auction of all kinds cool OA memorabilia. The Section will be accepting donations and consignments! If you’re interesting in submitting items, bring them Friday night and turn them in to the auction. Upon payout, the items that were consigned will be split 50/50 between Section C-6B and the consigner. There is no item limit and all purchases must be purchased with either cash or check.
If you've never been to a Conclave before, you really need to attend this one.

Yours In Brotherhood,
Greetings Lodge Members,
After long deliberation and careful consideration of the current and upcoming weather and road conditions it has been decided that the Lodge Lock-In scheduled for this evening (2/21) will be cancelled.
Our primary concern lies in safe travel to and from the event for our Lodge members and their families. We have had conversations about the weather and road conditions with Lodge Leadership and members from all parts of the council area that we serve. These conversations led us to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of those we serve to cancel the event.
We understand this is disappointing for our members who had planned on attending and will do our best to reschedule the event in the near future. Thank you for your understanding and support during this decision making process. We look forward to seeing you at our next Lodge event.
We will keep you informed as to the plans for rescheduling the Lodge Lock-In which we'll communicate out as soon as they are made. Stay safe and warm.
Yours in Brotherhood,
Lodge Associate Adviser of Activities
