Meet the Chief

Hello there! I’m Andrew Borders, and Scouting has always been a passion of mine ever since I joined a Cub Scout pack in 2009. I attained Eagle Scout in 2017 and became involved in Ha-Kin-Skay-A-Ki Lodge as a brotherhood member, where my most recent position was Vice Chief. I’ve been nominated by that lodge for the Vigil Honor.

Among my favorite activities, in and out of the BSA, are mountain climbing, historical interpretation, and serving as staff of National Youth Leadership Training. If you ever have questions about Section W-2S, please feel free to reach out! I’d be happy to answer any that I am able. Plus, if you’re interested in helping plan the upcoming Section Conclave, let us know!

Thank you for visiting the Section W-2S Website!

Join your fellow Arrowman from across Colorado and attend our annual W-2S Section Conclave! We will be hosting our virtual Section Conclave this year on Sunday September 13th from 400 pm until 800 pm from the comfort of your own home!!

Within our virtual Section Conclave, you will have an opportunity to participate in some real exciting online games with your fellow Arrowman, help your Lodge in the Bronze Moose Award Competition, watch this year’s Silver Moose Award AND a chance to help decide on next year’s Section Youth Leadership Elections!!.

Join the Section W-2S’s largest event of the year without ever leaving the comfort of your home!  Our virtual Conclave will have some original activities created specifically for the virtual experience. These will be jam-packed with games, contests, and many more exciting activities! 

It is important now more than ever that we support our lodges. Like all of us, timelines have changed and we are being faced with unprecedented circumstances inside and outside of the OA and Scouting! The challenge that lays before us is to help ensure that we grow a strong and active Order of the Arrow for our current members and for future OA members to help carry on our great traditions!

In registering for the W-2S virtual Section Conclave each member will receive our annual Section Conclave patch this year together for only a small price of $5.00! By attending our Conclave this year, you will be helping your Lodge and the OA to ensure that we have a new set of trained OA members, and a new set of OA Section Youth Leadership to help lead us to greater things for 2021!

You can go to http://www.pikespeakbsa.org/Event.aspx?id=4965 to register for our 2020 Virtual Section Conclave and get ready for a great day of OA fellowship, fun activities and our annual Section Leadership Elections!!

W-2S Section Conclave Postponed

After consulting with Pikes Peak Council Risk Management team and Section Leadership Team, it has been decided to postpone W-2S Section Conclave April 17 – 19 2020, due to the on going Virus. We have begun researching another date and will let you know as soon as possible. We wanted to give everyone as much notice as possible. Please distribute this information to your Lodges to make sure everyone is aware.

2020 Conclave- The Wizard of OA

Dear OA Brothers and Sisters,

It’s that time of year again. Time for our friends within the Order of the Arrow from across Colorado, to gather and enjoy a weekend of fun and fellowship. Registration for 2020 Section Conclave is now open and everyone throughout the W-2S Section and beyond is invited to attend and have fun. This year Conclave will be held at a place familiar to many of us, Camp Alexander from April 17-19. Come join us for a weekend full of fun activities, insightful training courses, and great food. 2020 Section Conclave will also be the sight of the rescheduled National ACT Conference, during which all participants will get a chance to sit in and learn about what’s new in the OA. Don’t forget, throughout the weekend of Conclave, participation in activities and classes will also help determine which Lodge will take home the Bronze Moose awarded, let’s see which Lodge can show the most spirit. Currently, we are in the ‘Early Registration’ window so if you sign up before April 7 you get a $10 discount ($45) off the cost of attendance, normally $55. Registration will close on April 13. Some Lodges may have their own sign-up pages but, to officially register at our Section web site and for more information please, click here .

Yours in Service, Section Chief Phillip Alvarez
