Vice Chief Vibes

In this edition of the Vice Chief Vibes, section vice chief Jackson McCullough encourages Arrowmen to get involved in the section and shares his excitement about this year's conclave theme.

Spring 2023 Gateway Region NLS/DYLC Dates

The closest National Leadership Seminar (NLS) and Developing Youth Leadership Conference (DYLC) courses to our section this year are coming up March 31st through April 2nd in Boise, Idaho! 

Join members of the section and Arrowmen from around the Gateway Region at these premier training experiences. You and your crew will build lifelong connections and you will get to meet the Gateway Region Chief and another national officer. We can’t wait to see you in Boise for a wonderful training and experience.

Conclave Trainers Needed

Saturday morning of conclave is filled with a variety of training sessions for Arrowmen to learn new skills, discover a new hobby, or even get a resource to take back to their chapter or unit. However, these training classes don't just happen by themselves. 

The section training committee is looking for Arrowmen to be trainers at this year's conclave. If you have a special skill or knowledge of a subject the you think other Arrowmen may be interested in learning more about, then being a trainer is for you. Topics for classes can range from Scout skills, hobbies, professional trades, and anything in between.

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.

2023 Wauna La-Mon'tay WICC Recap

by Truman Grace

On the last weekend of January, Wauna La-Mon’tay Lodge met at Camp Meriwether to reconnect with the spirit of the Order of the Arrow.

The weekend was filled with trainings and workshops to teach our members how to be an Elangomat, ceremonialist, and much more. From these trainings, the lodge gained many Arrowman interested in ceremonies and other ways to help out. The trainings had high attendance and were very helpful to the many youth and adults who attended.
