Meals will be served to people staying the whole weekend, and hotdogs will be grilled Saturday afternoon for everyone.

The Centurion Award
Thursday, 07 May 2015 18:48

For nearly 100 years, the Order of the Arrow has purposefully recognized Scocenturionawarduts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. Therefore, our organization’s centennial provides a unique opportunity to commemorate those among us who are exemplars of the “high ideals and purpose of the Order of the Arrow.” The Centurion Award aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or Arrowmen who have meaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, inspired others to follow in their footsteps.


Each Lodge in the country is allowed to choose a very select few individuals to receive this once in a lifetime recognition. They may be selected from any period of the Lodge’s history. In the case of T’kope Kwiskwis that is 61 years. They can either be recognized for their service as a youth or an adult, with a final mix of more youth than adults. They may be living or deceased. Recipients from our Lodge cover our first Lodge Chief to more contemporary members, all are currently living. All have made significant and lasting contributions to the benefit of our Lodge.

The recipient’s from T’Kope Kwiskwis are:

Case A. Barden William Flodman Mike Gaylord
Henry Ken Hayashi Joyce A. Johnson Matthew D. Kahn
Mike Kelly Del Loder Jason Stewart

These recipients will be recognized at the 2015 NOAC and locally at the ArrowTour event June 27th at Camp Pigott. You will also be able to visit a digital publication on the national website, describing their contributions.
We thank and congratulate all of these Cheerful Servants; they truly are the ones that came before.

Conclave 2015
Wednesday, 08 April 2015 10:38

Hi, this is your Section W1-N CVC for Promotions.
This month, Sikhs Mox Lamonti will be hosting the 2015 Section W1-N Conclave at Camp Fire Mountain. Conclave is a very special time for our Section, as it only happens once a year. Conclave is a time where all of the Lodges in our section come together for a fun-filled weekend. What makes 2015 special is that it marks the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. This means that this year's Conclave will be one to remember.

Conclave starts Friday, April 24th, and ends Sunday April 26th. For a couple hours on the the 25th, there will be a couple of classes to attend, ranging from Native History and Button Blankets, to learning how to become a better leader. Then, the rest of the day is filled with fun activities.

Events to look for are bouncy houses, 1100 foot Zipline, Climbing Wall, Tomahawk throwing, human foosball, mountain biking, glow in the dark ultimate frisbee, and much more. Later on, we will be electing new Section Officers, and have a party to remember. Rounding it off, are great opening and closing shows, filled with fun and laughter. Everyone will be staying in the Camp's adirondacks and tents, and meals are provided in the Dining Hall.

Go to sectionw1n.org to sign up now. After April 12th, the price will go up from $45 to $60. You can sign up for Conclave Updates by texting @cupdates to 81010, for updates throughout Conclave. See you there!

The Order of the Arrow is excited to partner with The Chief Seattle and Mount Baker councils to provide this program.

dsc_3866_smallThere will be silk screening, so bring a tee shirt and screen one of our centennial logos onto it. We will have brands to burn one of several logos onto your hat, belt, boots or other appropriate items.

Mark your calendar, Saturday June 27 from 2pm to 7pm at Camp Pigott.

 
Conclave Challenge
Friday, 06 March 2015 20:51

Get ready for the 2ND Annual T'KOPE CONCLAVE CHAPTER ATTENDANCE CHALLENGE!!2015_conclave


Your Chief (Torin) and his somewhat able Adviser assistant (Mike), are once again challenging all Chapters to get the greatest number of their members to the Centennial Section W-1N Conclave in April. The Chapter with the greatest attendance will receive an all-expenses paid Ice Cream Sundae Palooza! , This will be provided at the Conclave. Chief Torin and Assistant Mike will be serving up enough sweet sugary delights to make your favorite Dentist's Boat payments for a year. Last year SMK pretty much set the bar for a great turnout, so the challenge to the rest of you -do you want to sit on the sidelines and watch SMK turn perfectly clean uniforms in to a sticky mess only a mother could save? Of course not, you want your own Mother to save you once again. Chapter Chiefs, rally your Arrowmen and join us at Conclave.


Conclave will be April 24-26 at Camp Fire Mountain. If you sign up now you'll even save a few bucks and remember, a chocolate and strawberry stained sash is a proud sash!
Hope to see you there.
