2019 Spring Induction Weekend and PoppiFest

March 8-10, 2019 at Camp Augusta

The biannual Induction Weekend and PoppiFest has come and gone again!
As usual, the lodge headed up to Camp Augusta on Friday night (March 8th). Since the night had a risk of rain, the 5 candidates that attended slept in separate cabins rather than out on the field for their night alone.

In the morning, we began our service projects for the camp. The lodge worked in three groups on different projects, including cleaning up their garden, clearing out a team-building area called Low Ropes, and finishing last Ordeal’s project of building railings for platform tents (we ran out of wood last time).

As the day progressed into the afternoon, it began to rain harder and more often, so we shifted the schedule, ending the service project early and conducting ceremonies in the early afternoon, inducting the 5 candidates with a ceremony in the lodge.

The ceremonies team then inducted 3 Brotherhood members with an indoor ceremony too.

After the ceremonies, crew settled in for a feast of "Okie" Beef Wellington, and all the fixin's in the lodge, where it was drier, and a few degrees above freezing. The crackling fire provided some ambiance in the cold.

After dinner, we held the PoppiFest and carnival, with lots of prizes for all the youth. Since all our tasks had been completed, and we were running the risk of more rain and/or snow overnight, the crew left at about 7:30pm that Saturday night for a more comfortable rest in our own beds. Overall, it was a successful and fun trip – make sure to put the next one on your calendars!

Conclave 2019

April 26-28th, 2019, at Cutter Scout Reservation

General Information
WHAT IS AN OA SECTION CONCLAVE?

A Conclave is a gathering of arrowmen that is organized and planned each year by the section. At a typical Conclave you will be able to learn a variety of new things in the training sessions that are offered. You can meet arrowmen from other lodges and trade patches. Lodges compete against each other in competitions, some of which you won’t find anywhere else. Conclave is also where section officers are elected. You may even get to meet a national officer of the OA. Three things that every conclave has are lots of spirit, fellowship, and fun!

WHO SHOULD GO?
All arrowmen should go to the W-3S Conclave! We welcome arrowmen of all ages from every lodge. Even though it is the W-3S conclave, we always enjoy having arrowmen from other sections as well. There really is something for everyone. If you are a new arrowman, don’t be intimidated. Once you come to one, you will be hooked!
