Hey – “What is Conclave???”

Hey – “What is Conclave???”


Never been to Conclave? Curious about what it is? Here’s a quick list of the things you can do. Along with a video of past conclaves.

Friday night there’s dinner, a Conclave Carnival and kick-off, patch trading, and trading posts are open.

Trainings Saturday Morning (attend the ones you like) range from preserving our orders history to knowing how to keep it moving forward.

Quest for the Golden Arrow (join a team or cheer on Tutelo) in Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball, Tug-of-war, Bean Ring

AIA (American Indian Activities) will include drum, dance, and craft demonstrations, and you can probably expect to visit a tipi village.

The Expo during the afternoon Saturday will feature lots of organizations demonstrating what they do – think things like blacksmithing, fly fishing, outdoor clubs, memorabilia groups, hiking clubs etc.

Quite possibly a visit by Miss West Virginia…

The Grand Hodag? That’s the Saturday evening show that includes section elections, music, videos, CAMPFIRE STORIES by Tutelo’s own JOHN HANKINS and it concludes with every lodge providing tons of food as you visit each lodges Hodag booth.

BONUS – This year is Tutelo’s 50th anniversary (the only time that will happen) AND we are the Conclave host! This is the closest you will ever be to a conclave site 🙂

Saturday is the BIG day – check this schedule out from last year to get a good idea of everything to do!
