Message from the Chief October 2020
I hope this Apensuwi finds you all safe and healthy. As we continue to face the challenges of these unprecedented times, I remain inspired by the resilience and innovation demonstrated by the lodges in our section. Many lodges came up with innovative solutions to ensure that Arrowmen could still engage with their lodge virtually over the summer, and many are now working hard to ensure that Arrowmen can safely enjoy in-person fellowship and induction weekends.
As a section, we are continuing to prepare for Conclave 2021, which will take place April 16th-18th at Camp Bowers. Section and lodge leaders will meet virtually next weekend to continue the planning process for Conclave and registration will launch in the next few weeks at oae8.org/conclave. We hope that you will join us for this weekend of fun and fellowship with Brothers from across the state.
Finally, be sure to check out the National Order of the Arrow’s Momentum: Spark event, taking place virtually November 6th-7th. Momentum: Spark will include top-tier training on inductions and activation, as well as messages from the national leadership, and fun games and activities, like those enjoyed at Momentum Launch. You can register for free as a basic delegate or pay $15 for a premium delegate registration, which includes access to an archive of streamed content, access to the Momentum community platform, the ability to participate in the event-wide game, and a mailed patch. Go to momentum.oa-bsa.org for more information and to register today!
Yours in Brotherhood,
