The SR-7B Cardinal Conclave will be one of the largest Scouting events in 2017. With over 1400 Arrowmen in attendance from all over North Carolina and special guests from Texas and Virginia, this year’s conclave will not only be the largest event you attend but also the most fun. Conclave will be held at Camp Raven Knob in beautiful Mt. Airy, North Carolina on April 21-23.
Activities during Conclave cater to every Arrowman’s favorite program. Section level ceremonies, drumming, and singing workshops are available for those who have an interest in AIA. Arrowmen who love trading patches will have an opportunity to do that Friday through Sunday. Our lodge and every other lodge will offer patches for trade and sell. The flap featured to the right is our delegate patch which pairs well with the dangle patch offered at Spring Fellowship in March.
Conclave is also an excellent opportunity to showcase great things our lodge encompasses as well as our spirit. Part of the attendance fee will be memorabilia items that coincide with our lodge theme: racing. During the day there on Saturday the section training event: OAX will feature over 50 exhibitors sharing outdoor and other opportunities from all over the state and region.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to have fun and make new friends!
