Conclave 2023

The biggest OA event of the year in our area is heading to Grants Pass this September! 

This year's conclave is a long drive for many of our Arrowmen, but it will be well worth the extra few miles. From fun and engaging activities and competitions and interesting morning training sessions to '80s themed special events and exciting evening shows, conclave has so much to offer. 

Grants Pass is home to the original Dutch Bros. coffee, so we are giving away a special Dutch Bros. gift package for one lucky Arrowman. All you have to do is be one of the first 50 registered! 

Want to see our section vice chief shave his head? How about our chief and secretary dye their hair? These will happen when we hit certain registration milestones. You can help by registering today.

We look forward to seeing you September 8-10 at Rogue Community College for conclave!

Chiefly Speaking

Summer is here! Now it is time to seek new opportunities to help you grow. It could be getting more involved with your chapter or lodge or unit. The OA is all about opportunities that are waiting just for you.

Section Photo Contest

Don't forget about the section photo contest running through the end of the month! 

Submit your inductions-related photos by June 30th for a chance to win prizes and have your photo featured in an upcoming section publication.

The contest is open to both youth and adult Arrowmen and we are in need of more submissions!

Trainers Needed

he 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!

You've Completed Your Induction: Now What?

First off, congratulations! You were selected by your fellow Scouts in recognition of your commitment to living the Scout Oath and Law in your daily life. Next, you underwent the four tests of the Ordeal: a night alone on your groundsheet, a day of arduous service, scant food, all spent in “thoughtful” silence. What does this all mean? How does this apply to me? Why did I complete the four tests?


Congratulations Silver Buffalo & Antelope Recipients!

Two Arrowmen of the section received distinguished awards last month during the BSA National Annual Meeting.

Silver Buffalo recipient Mike Bliss of Lo La'Qam Geela Lodge.

Silver Antelope recipient Kaleen Deatherage of Wauna La-Mon'tay Lodge. 

Get Involved in the Section

Interested in the next level of leadership and service? Consider volunteering at the section level! There are several opportunities to get involved the section. 

We are especially looking for volunteer staff for this year's conclave to serve a variety of committees.

Donated to the Conclave Auction

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.
