Section W-3N was established in 2009 when section W-3A and W-3B were merged together and traded lodges for a more even split of area 3. During the time were lodges were assigned, W-3N gained two lodges from W-3A, Ut-In Sélica, and Talako, and three lodges from W-3B, Tannu, Amangi Nacha, and Orca.
Section W-3N has been holding annual conclaves since its first year in 2009. Our first section conclave was at Coast Guard Island hosted by Ut-In Sélica lodge.
Our section has had two section officers elected to Western Region Chief, Joe Barton IV (2012) and Michael Kintscher (2014).
Section W-3N had been lead by youth since 2009 starting with Chief Jake Knudson from Tannu Lodge. We have been able to host some of the greatest conclaves in the region since then because of our youth leadership. Even some of our past chiefs have been elected to national positions and helped organize NOAC and other national events.
