The quest is a competition held at conclave between the lodges in the section. Events include some team and individual athletic games and contests of knowledge. As a prize the victorious lodge gets to keep the Golden Arrow (a large arrow that is about five feet long and golden) until the next Conclave.

As noted, its a competition event between the lodges of the section held at Section Conclave/Conference.


In my section its a golden medal arrow about 2 feet long kept in a wooden display case. On the lid is a plaque upon which is engraved all the lodges who have won it, and the year(s) they have done so.


Another long standing event in my section is the Adult Sinkathon, in which the lodge advisor and staff advisor of each lodge are put into canoes (1 canoe per lodge) and using just #10 buckets, try to sink the canoes of the other lodge advisors. Last lodge afloat wins. The traveling trophy for that has a cypress knee with a canoeist on the top, again with a plaque with all the winners over the years engraved on it.


The event is so long standing, that many of our lodges will hold a similiar event within their own lodges, using between chapters.
