If you smell chlorine, it’s probably him.

By | October 28th, 2019|Section of the Month|

After the conclusion of the national webinar, THRIVE, it was made clear to all that things needed to change in our Order.  This past March, Section C-3B made a huge step towards these changes by hosting an event that brought Arrowmen, Sea Scouts, Cub Scouts, and non scouters together to enjoy and celebrate Native American [...]

September Section of the Month: C-1A

By | September 18th, 2019|Section of the Month|

Section C-1A is not like most other sections.  Spanning across parts of eight different states, it can be difficult to gather all of the Arrowmen across the section for an event like the Council of Chiefs or Conclave.  But Section C-1A has overcome this challenge by offering a Conclave experience like no other: the opportunity [...]

July Section of the Month: C-4

By | July 29th, 2019|Section of the Month|

One of the greatest things about our Order is that each chapter is unique, making each lodge unique, and each section unique from one another.  With this, comes a wide variety of ideas. After its forming about a year ago, Section C-4 joined up with Section C-6B to share some of these ideas in their [...]

By | June 25th, 2019|Section of the Month|

Just last month Section C-2 got together for their annual section conclave where arrowmen enjoyed a variety of activities from Bounce houses, jousting, obstacle courses, lodgeball, and even a magician.  But Magician John Dudley wasn’t the only magic that occurred at conclave! The real magic occurred when the entire section traveled back in time to [...]

April Section of the Month: Section C-5B

By | April 24th, 2019|Section of the Month|

Tornado Alley, which spans across the central United States, sees an average of 1,000 tornadoes every year.  Amidst this destruction, it’s important to always stay positive, which is exactly what Section C-5B has done! Their newly created logo (as seen above) cleverly hides “C-5B” within a tornado. But that’s not all C-5B has done! Their [...]

For years and years, young females have had to sit and watch as their brothers enjoyed all the fun that Boy Scouts has to offer, specifically through the Order of the Arrow (OA).  But over this past summer, the OA announced that its policy would be changed to allow Scouts BSA units, Venturing Scouts, and [...]

February Section of the Month: Section C-7

By | February 9th, 2019|Section of the Month|

Just a few weeks ago, Section C-7 held their Winter Council of Chiefs (WCOC).  But with over 200 arrowmen attending, this was not your typical WCOC. Held at the Kalahari Resort in the Wisconsin Dells, Section C-7’s WCOC has the perfect balance of business and fellowship.  For their grand entrance, the C-7 officers walked on-stage [...]
