Section E2 Conclave

With the Section Conclave theme being the 1980’s we hope you¬†“Don’t Stop Believin'”¬†that the Mishigami Lodge can take the largest contingent of Arrowman to the event on April 14-16 at Camp Lakota in Defiance, Ohio!

This weekend is filled with themed trainings, fun activities such as 9 square, fellowship, amazing shows and competitions, and much more. If you have never been to a section conclave get your “Wheel in the Sky” or whatever transportation you use and let’s go to Ohio in this 1st ever E2 Section Conclave with “Open Arms” with Arrowman from Michigan, Ohio, and Northern Kentucky.  Camp Lakota will be feeding us great meals as we camp and experience a new location for many of us.

If you haven’t figured it out we have theme going with the 1980’s band Journey, and as such we have created a Section Conclave Lodge Flap with the 80’s theme that you will recieve if you go to Section Conclave. ¬†So¬†“Who’s Crying Now”, training, fun, Section Patch, Section Merchandise, and a Lodge Section Conclave Flap.¬†

“Any Way You Want It” this is one event you should not miss.

Yours¬†“Faithfully”
