Notes

The 2013 Conclave was the tenth hosted by Blue Heron, and the ninth at Pipsico. It was the first SR-7A Conclave to host more than 1,000 Arrowmen.

SR-7A Arrowmen performed the first-ever service project at an SR-7A Conclave by bagging up 84,000 lbs of surplus sweet potatoes, which were picked up by local food banks and church food pantries for distribution to the hungry in the area. This service project rendered an estimated 800 man-hours of cheerful service, and was led by past Blue Heron Lodge Chief and past National Vice Chief, Preston Marquis.

SR-7A’s first Chapter Leadership Summit (CLS) was held and very well received. The CLS was a special 5-hour training course for all SR-7A Chapter Chiefs and Advisers. CLS staff included past National Chief John Rehm and past Southern Region Chief David Joyner in addition to staff members from SR-7A.
