2008 Section W4A Conclave

March 14 – 16, 2008

Forest Lawn Scout Reservation1, Lake Arrowhead, California

2007 – 2008 Section Officers and Advisers

Chief: Alex Braden

Vice-Chief: Jack Chinn

Secretary: Joel Garay

Section Adviser: Brian Wilder

Associate Adviser: Howard Kern

Service Lodge: Siwinis Lodge # 252

One of the coldest Section Conclaves on record. Nearly all people slept in cabins with wintry weather. Lows may have been below 20.

The Conclave informally ended Saturday afternoon, as a new snowstorm was coming in and there was concern about the ability of vehicles to leave the area.

Elections were quickly completed and people were given the opportunity to leave. The new Section, Section W4N would opt to change their Conclave date to a weekend in September each year.
