2018 Conclave Training Update

The Section officers are taking a new approach to Conclave training this year. Instead of the traditional approach of packing the class options with as many classes and activities the COC can come up with, the officers decided to spread the training responsibilities across all of the section committees. This training structure is more focused on providing you the tools and technical skills necessary to further strengthen your own lodges and chapters within multiple different disciplines.

This has led to the current training structure of using “tracks” and “guided Workshops” with a schedule of:

  • Training Session 1
  • Training Session 2
  • Training Session 3
  • Lunch
  • Guided Workshop 1
  • Guided Workshop 2

During the race up to Buffalo, Wyoming, we were able to beat the incoming snow in Cheyenne and were met with sunshine for the rest of the weekend in Buffalo. Read More

2018 Conclave Patch Design Contest

The time for designing the coveted W6W Conclave patch set has come! Our theme this year is based on the board game: Monopoly. To complement our theme, this year’s message is: ” 4 Lodges, 1 Purpose ” Using the theme and message as inspiration, we challenge you to come up with a unique patch design to represent this year’s Conclave! Find a way to represent the camaraderie and fellowship of Conclave on your design and surely you will design the best patch to represent Section W6W this year.

Guidelines:

  • Must include the W6W Roadrunner (Robbie the Roadrunner)
  • Must be related to the Conclave theme: Monopoly
  • 10 or fewer colors

Lastly, this year’s winner will have a Conclave scholarship made in their name to be given to one youth of the winner’s choosing (can be the winner of the competition). This scholarship will waive the Conclave fee for any youth and allow them to experience the Conclave for free!
