The 2019 New England Fellowship will be held at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation in Rutland, MA. Here is a brief description for those of you who are unfamiliar with this camp:

“Founded in 1926, Treasure Valley Scout Reservation (TVSR) is a beautiful 1,600-acre woodland camp that offers over 70 miles of hiking/biking trails, a variety of ecosystems and wildlife habitats, and a nocturnal view of the solar system that will inspire the imagination.”

The newly-formed Catamount Lodge will be hosting this event for Section NE-1. The NEF Coordinator, Ian H, and his team of chairmen and advisers have been working diligently to provide a spectacular program for the 500+ Arrowmen that will be attending the event in June.

There will be several program areas at TVSR open throughout the weekend, including Waterfront, Shooting Sports, and our COPE and climbing course. A wide variety of program activities will be offered in these areas. The annual Section Officer Election, Vigil Rededication and Very Important Arrowmen Luncheon will also be occurring over the course of the event.

Spikeball, air rifles, mountain biking, dunk tanks, and bounce houses are just a few of the awesome activities that have been planned by the Program CVC, Owen O. All Arrowmen are invited to sign up to compete in the Ultimate Frisbee Tournament and to battle for the prestigious NE-1 Cup.

If you haven’t already, make sure to gather spirit items to represent your lodge for a chance to win the coveted Section NE-1 Harpoon!

I am extremely excited for the 2019 New England Fellowship and I can’t wait to see you there!
