Conclave 2022


We are excited to announce that registration for the 2022 Section G16 Conclave will open on Sunday, May 1st! 

Visit the conclave event website at conclave.sectiong16.org for all the information on this year's conclave.

Secretary Statement

Greetings and Salutations Section G16!

First of all, I’d like to wish everyone an amazing induction season. As a side note, I’m almost 100% sure that the whole idea to change the name of the sections was a ploy to set up the largest nationwide game of Battleship. It’s all going to come together at NOAC. I’m sure of it. (call me a conspiracy theorist) Anyways, my favorite time of the year is rapidly approaching. Summer camp season is just around the corner. Make sure your units are signed up for a program this year.

Conclave Trainers Needed

The section training committee is looking for Arrowmen to be trainers for this year’s conclave training program. If you have a special skill or knowledge of a subject that you think other Arrowmen may be interested in learning more about, then being a trainer is for you. 

Sign up to be a conclave trainer today!

Volunteer for Conclave Activities

The 2022 Section G16 Conclave activities committee needs your help!

They are planning some of the best games and activities ever seen at conclave or a Scout event. They are in need of volunteers to supply equipment and help run them on Saturday of conclave. If you have helped in the past or are interested in helping with this year’s conclave, either by providing activities or running them, please fill out the conclave activities volunteer form. Adult volunteers are preferred so that our youth Arrowmen have more time to enjoy the fun activities.

NOAC 2022

This summer, over 600 Arrowmen from across the country will gather at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville for the next National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC). During NOAC, Arrowmen will get to experience what it is like living on a college campus by eating in the university dining halls, sleeping in dorms, attending training sessions in classrooms, and participating in activities in campus recreation facilities. 

NOAC is a week filled with fun, adventure, excitement, training, fellowship, and inspiration. From the world-class training sessions to the amazing theme shows filled with special effects, NOAC is an experience you will not want to miss. 

We are looking forward to a great turnout from our section with all of our lodge contingents at or near capacity. If you missed out on being able to attend NOAC with your lodge contingent, consider attending on NOAC staff. As a member of staff, you not only get to experience many of the great opportunities that NOAC has to offer, but you also get to serve thousands of Arrowmen by helping provide the best conference possible. And you'll make new friends in the process! 

Not able to physically go to Tennessee this July? That doesn't mean you have to miss out on NOAC! Register as a "remote delegate" and attend the conference virtually from the comfort of your own home. As a remote delegate, you will have exclusive access to NOAC swag, special training sessions, online networking, and a live stream of the NOAC shows and special events!

We hope to see you at NOAC, July 25-30!

2022 Lo La'Qam Geela Spring Fellowship Recap

Held the first weekend in April, at Union Rouge Baptist Camp, Lo La’Qam Geela’s Spring Fellowship was our first successful event of the year. With almost 30 brothers in attendance, we kicked off this new year in our lodge with our right foot forward. Activities at this event included a Brotherhood ceremony, cornhole tournament, and many games of Monopoly. As always, our lodge enjoyed a fantastic banquet full of fellowship and great conversation amongst our brothers in the Order.

2022 Tsisqan Service Weekend Recap

Tsisqan Lodge held their Service Weekend at Camp Baker on April 20-22. The annual event, free for dues-paid lodge members to attend, is one of the largest single service events held at the camp each year.

This year, over 60 Arrowmen gathered for the event as they cheerfully served the council and helped prepared the Camp Baker for another busy summer of Scouting adventures, contributing over 500 hours of service in the process. 

2022 Wauna La-Mon'tay WICC Recap

— by Bryant Gillins

The Wauna Inductions and Ceremonies Conference was an amazing event that led participants through a modeled experience of the induction weekend in order to help Arrowman to realize the deeper meaning and importance of it. Upon arrival on Friday night, participants were given time to fellowship and mingle while playing games such as Inductions Jeopardy and doing other various activities. Later that evening, attendees saw a demonstration and breakdown with dialogue breaking down each part of the Pre-Ordeal Ceremony for all to see and understand the deeper meaning.

Section Volunteer Interest Form

Want to get more involved in the Order of the Arrow, serve Arrowmen throughout the section, and strengthen a skill to take back to your chapter, lodge or unit? Fill out our volunteer interest form.

There are opportunities available for both youth and adults on several committees including communications, training, auction, and more. From serving as a trainer at conclave, helping with the annual auction, taking photos at OA events, or publishing information on the section websites, there is a job for you! 

Conclave Auction Donations

The conclave auction committee is looking for donations of items for the silent and live auctions at this year’s conclave. The auctions raise money to help support the section’s year-round operations including providing scholarships, sending section officers to the region gathering and National Planning Meeting, section communications, and supporting the lodges we serve.

Donations of all sorts are welcome including patches, Scouting memorabilia, camping equipment, and more.
