On the weekend of October 12-14, 2013, SR-7A officers and advisers joined their colleagues from throughout the Southern Region at the T Bar M Resort in New Braunfels, Texas (outside of San Antonio) for the Southern Region Gathering. Section Chief Ben Webster, Vice Chief Taylor Bobrow,and Secretary A.J. Kelly shared ideas and learned best practices for conclave implementation, lodge and chapter support, Journey to Excellence, Project 2013 at the National Jamboree, and more. Section Adviser Mike White and Associate Advisers John Thomas and Scott Smith learned new techniques for supporting the efforts of the youth officers. Saturday evening, the participants visited San Antonio attractions including the Alamo and Riverwalk. Next time you see one of your section officers, ask them about the great and productive time they had in Texas!
