Now is the time to register for lodge events. Mark down your calendars because you won’t want to miss the events this year. Register for our 4 main lodge events by the end of Spring Pow-Wow and you’ll receive one (1) free “Thundy Events” Patch. See the bottom of this post for more details.
March 17-19, 2017
Spring Pow-Wow is our first event of the year and consists of ceremony and AIA practicing for Conclave. As well as our Brotherhood Trail for everyone who is eligible. Kick off the year with a fun event filled with Brotherhood.
April 21-23, 2017
The section conclave is an annual activity (prior to 1972 known as an Area OA Conference) involving three or more lodges in an established geographic area. Each conclave is led by section youth officers elected from among the member lodges at the previous year’s conclave, and the event itself is prepared in cooperation with various other lodge officers, and with one lodge serving as the “host lodge”.The SR-7B Conclave is a gathering of over 1000 Arrowmen that occurs once a year in April at a Boy Scout Camp in our Section. In short, it’s a great weekend of fun, training, and fellowship!
Because Conclave is a section event, there is separate registration from our lodge events.
May 19-21, 2017
Spring Inductions is our biggest event of the year. It’s also our first Ordeal opportunity for all new candidates this year. Come be a part of our largest service day of the year and welcome our new members.

Vigil Members Only – October 21-22, 2017
Vigil Weekend is a chance for all Vigil Members to meet one another, socialize, and welcome the vigil class of 2017. We invite all members who hold the vigil honor to attend.

Each year, the leaders of Occoneechee Lodge gather for a Lodge Leadership Development event.
