Read the May edition of the Apensuwi | Section SR-7B | Order of the Arrow


I hope you and those you care about are well amidst these troubling times. While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact all aspects of our lives, including OA and Scouting programs, we continue to prepare and plan for the postponed 2020 Cardinal Conclave, taking place August 28th-30th. We recognize that the recent change in the status of NOAC, may have caused some questions regarding the status of Conclave.

The Council of Chiefs remains optimistic that we will be able to hold this event, and the postponed Conclave is currently set to be held as planned in August. Several factors, including the size, location of, and travel associated with the event, make Conclave different from NOAC in terms of our ability to safely hold the event in August. We will continue to monitor the CDC recommendations and state guidelines regarding social distancing, to ensure that we are able to hold a fun and safe event.

The Section Officers and Chairmen are continuing to plan a great Cardinal Conclave! With exciting shows, interactive OAX exhibits, fun Quest events, a chance to participate in Section Elections, and a festive Cardinival, Conclave is an event you won’t want to miss! You can still sign up today. There is no better time to connect with brothers from across the Section, and there is no better place to do it than Cardinal Conclave. I can’t wait to see you there!

Yours in Brotherhood,
Ethan Syster Section Chief
