This past weekend, our Lodge put on an incredible performance at the first ever Section E5 Conference. With 59 members in attendance, Uh-To-Yeh-Hut-Tee Lodge had a dominating weekend, finishing in the top 3 for almost every competition, including wins in many of those categories. Among these victories was our 1st Place finish in the Best All-Around Lodge Competition, which marks the first podium finish and the first win in that competition in our Lodge's history. I am also very excited to congratulate our Lodge's own Nathan C. on being elected as the Section E5 Chief for the next year, which makes him just the second Section Chief to come from our Lodge. We are very excited to see Nathan bring his leadership abilities to the Section Level.
Here is a full recap of our Lodge's performance this weekend:

Section Conference is Florida’s premier event for exciting competitions, leadership training, interactive games, and amazing fellowship with other Arrowmen throughout the Section. This year, Section Conference is being held April 8-10 at Wallwood Scout Reservation in Quincy, FL. We don't want anyone to miss out on the great trainings and competitions that will be offered.
Section Conference 2021 was an amazing weekend for our lodge. We competed in all kinds of games and activities, winning 1st in the King’s Cup competition, 1st place in all 3 ceremonies (including achieving honor team), 1st place in the Adviser Sinkathon, 2nd place in the Website competition, and even placing in a few lodge vs lodge games and spirit competitions. But most of all, we all had a great weekend. Thank you to the host, Tipisa Lodge. We can’t wait for next section conference!

While it may have been delayed and moved online, Echockotee Lodge put on a stellar Section Conference event. The trainings were informative, but they managed to pack some good competition in with a Section S-4 Kahoot and an around your home Scavenger hunt. The Section elections still took place, and Adam L has been elected our new Section Chief. You can read more about that on the Section S-4 website here.
For Lodge competitions, we competed in multiple categories including Best All Around Lodge and the Section Website Competition. We placed 1st in the Section Website Competition.
Currently, Section Conference 2021 is scheduled for April 9-11, 2021 and will be hosted by Tipisa Lodge at camp La-No-Chee. This can still change depending on the world situation as we approach the date, so stay tuned for more information.
Due to the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, a difficult decision has been made to cancel the “in-person” Section Conference.
However, we are excited to announce that Section S-4 is going virtual and the 2020 Virtual Section Conference will take place November 21st and will be FREE for all members.
Register for Section Conference (Registration is Now Closed)
Section S-4, North Florida Council, and Echockotee Lodge have postponed S-4 Section Conference 2020 to November 20th – 22nd in response to the current situation regarding COVID-19. The event will still take place at Camp Shands. For those unfamiliar with Section Conference, it is a weekend long event that is hosted by a different lodge in our section (S-4) every year. There are great seminars and trainings to help grow the lodge in addition to lodge vs lodge competitions. Yearly events include the kings cup (lodge history exhibit), ceremonies evaluations, trainings and seminars, American Indian Activities, lodge vs lodge games, best all around lodge, and more. It is a great opportunity to meet people from all over the state and bond with your brothers in a weekend long fellowship event. This an ongoing situation and more changes may occur involving the event. For more information and updates regarding Section Conference 2020, visit http://www.sections4.org/
UPDATE: This event has since been moved Online. The date is now November 21st
