Greetings fellow Arrowmen,
Your service vice-chief would like to notify you about an awesome service opportunity coming up. This opportunity is the demolition and reconstruction of a large piece of a cabin up at Camp Sheppard. This will be a fun service project and food will be provided. Both adult and youth members are needed for this project. This is also the start of the Legacy Projects, which will be yearly service projects to our Council camps.
The two weekends for this project are:
Demolition: May 8-9
Reconstruction: May 22-23
Yours in Service,
T'Kope Kwiskwis Service Vice-Chief
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 Silver Beaver Award is the highest recognition that a council can award to its volunteers. It is only awarded to a few very deserving council members each year. Please join us in congratulating our Brother Lodge members that are recipients this year.

Congratulations and thank you for your years of service!
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.
There 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.
Get ready for the 2ND Annual T'KOPE CONCLAVE CHAPTER ATTENDANCE CHALLENGE!!
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.
Every quarter century of our order's history, the national committee has offered a special anniversary patch commemorating the historical milestone. This being the 100TH Anniversary it is no different. Arrowmen of all ages can participate in a series of events and service projects to earn this patch. You can download the requirement card, one for youth under 21, and one for adults at the forms section of the national website. Once you have completed the requirements and have the Lodge Adviser sign off, you will be able to purchase one of these 'Once in a Lifetime Patches'. Don't miss out, start your service today!
