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 turning 100 this year and we're bringing the celebration to Camp Pigott on Saturday, June 27 from 2pm to 7pm on the parade ground next to the dining hall.

ArrowTour is one of many programs and initiatives that comprise a year-long celebration of the Order of the Arrow's centennial anniversary. ArrowTour will provide opportunities to reflect, connect, and discover the Order's Centuries of Service, both past and future. 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.

There will be a gaga ball pit to test your skills with your friends and a trading post with ArrowTour and Order of the Arrow centennial merchandise.

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.

Nominations for the 2015 Vigil Honor Class
Sunday, 08 February 2015 11:09
vigilhonortriangleMy fellow brothers in the Wimachtendienk W. W., it is with great pleasure I announce the beginning of the search for the 2015 T'Kope Kwiskwis Vigil Honor Class. This process over the next few months will allow you, the members of the lodge, to nominate eligible candidates for consideration by our committee.

The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position or office to one or more of the following: the T'Kope Kwiskwis Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or our Council's Camps. Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation.

Recommendation letters to the committee must be typed, explain how the member has contributed to one or more of the four areas listed above, and why you think that person deserves the highest recognition that our Order can bestow. All recommendation letters must be turned into the Council's Scout Office by April 1st, 2015. Although it is not required, please include your name and contact information on the recommendation letter so we might contact you if we have any questions or seek further input. If you can please include English suggestions of an appropriate and honorable Vigil name for the nominee so the committee might make better and more enlightened decisions when bestowing names upon the new Vigil class. If you are a Vigil Honor member please note if you would be willing to sponsor the candidate at the time of their Vigil.

To be eligible, an Arrowman must have been a Brotherhood member for at least two years. The names of those brothers who are eligible are available on the password-protected member-only area of our website. (Click Here) Please nominate anyone and everyone you feel deserves this distinction. The Vigil honor committee will not consider the number of nomination letters any candidate receives in its decisions and considers every eligible member, regardless of receiving a nomination. Only those brothers whose dues are in good standing can be considered for the Vigil Honor.

Please take the time to write the committee so that those who have served might be recognized.
