Section Conclave 2017!

Section Conclave is the annual gathering of the four lodges of Michigan’s lower peninsula, known as Section C-2.  The Conclave is held the first full weekend of May every year at host lodge locations that rotate around the state.  This weekend is a MUST GO TO event for any Arrowman and is unlike any OA event you will go to all year.  You won’t want to miss it!

The theme for the 2017 Conclave is Comic-Conclave and will be at Camp Rotary, in Clare.  There will be many opportunities for yourself and your lodge to show your spirit by showing off your favorite comic or sci-fi character.  There are lots of things to do while at Conclave, including a big HODAG party at the Friday night bash, valuable information at the leadership sessions, Saturday afternoon recreation, ceremonies competitions, and a massive closing show that will be even bigger than last year, as well as special guests from across the comic-sphere.

Registration fees for the Conclave are:  Early Bird rate of $30 until January 28th.  HEY, THIS IS A COOL THING !   If you register through January 28th, you will receive a special Conclave for the Holidays patch.  After January 28th, the price rises to $35 until April 21st.  After that until May 1st, the late registration rate will be $40.  The only way to get the promotional patch is to register during the Early Bird period. Registration closes at the end of the day on May 1st.  There is NO walk-in registration available for this event.
