Spring Conclave
May 5th - 7th, 2017
(Early Bird Deadline is April 26th, 2017)
Get ready for Spring Conclave!  There's plenty of activities, events, and fellowship at this year's Spring Conclave.  Officer elections, elangomat training (to get ready for Ordeals), Vigil elections, Brotherhood tests (for all of you who completed your ordeal last summer, you are eligible to take your Brotherhood test and seal your membership in the lodge - details are in your OA Handbook), activities, lots of fun and fellowship with your brothers that you haven't seen since Fall Conclave, and let's not forget the Crazy Midnight Auction.
We will be holding the Crazy Midnight Auction at Spring Conclave to raise money for camperships for those scouts less forunate who may need a little help in order to attend summer camp.  So, start gathering up your goodies to auction off and saving up your money for those treasures you'll surely find there.  It's all for a great cause.
See you there!
