The Region Gatherings draw together the lodges of each region for fellowship; introduce the region chief and section chiefs, and inspire the members of the lodges.
Each region has its own unique personality and its own activities. The Southern Region hosted its region gathering on the Munn Intramural Field and featured two chiefly challenges. The first featured a pizza eating contest amongst the lodge chiefs. The Section Chiefs were then introduced and competed in a "Cherrywine," drinking challenge. Cherrywine is a southern delicacy which tastes similar to a Cherry Coke/Doctor Pepper concoction. The victor was SR-7A Section Vice Chief Robert Clemmer.
The Northeast Region featured a water shooting "dual" where each section chief selected a water pistol and then stood back to back with his oponent before taking two paces and turning to shoot at his fellow chief. When the water settled, PJ Berger of Northeast Section 3A had shot his way to victory. Following the contest, John Larney of Northeast Section1B was recognized for his service to the region. John has served as the NLS Coordinator, is the past section adviser to Northeast Section 1B and is the lodge adviser of Tisquantum.
Region gatherings are fun for lodge and for section leaders and conference participant because it offers the opportunity to gather in fellowship with your Brothers from your region.
