A Message from the Chief

J.J. Conklin

Welcome superheroes and Arrowmen of Section C-4A! I am thoroughly excited to have the opportunity to ensure a spectacular Conclave for the Arrowmen of this section. In fact, I am excited for all the Arrowmen that will attend this weekend of training, fun, and fellowship! The Order of the Arrow is an organization based on tradition, with over one hundred years of tradition. Conclave within Section C-4A has a tradition of excellence, and the CVCs and Coordinators plan on continuing that tradition this year. Working hand-in-hand with the service lodge, Marnoc, we will ensure a successful conclave for this last configuration of the six lodges. We have had a great run of conclaves over the years, but we all know it is not over yet. We need to go out with a bang, and that is exactly what we intend to do with our superheroes at Camp Manatoc. It may even include a “Pow” and a “Bam.” What this event will really come down to, though, is the participants. I know our Council of Chiefs members will do everything in their power to make this conclave the best it can be, but we can’t provide the costumes, the electricity, and the enthusiasm from the crowd at the shows. We will provide the atmosphere, but it is the fantastic Arrowmen attending this Conclave that will truly make it the best it can be.
