Swim Up - Rain or shine.


From a previous post......

Wednesday May 22 - 1st Manotick "Swim Up" ceremony, at Claudette Cain Park. This is an annual event, to recognize the youth as they 'swim up' to the next level of scouting. Some of our white tail beavers will be 'swimming up' and joining Cub packs in the fall, this is where that happens. You'll spot more info on the 1st Manotick group site by clicking here.

I've just been told that it is rain or shine, we'll see you in the park @6:30 tonight!

Note: Claudette Cain Park is the city park beside the river, across from Moncion's grocery store.

May 21 - End of Year Funhaven Party!!

Hey folks, we talked about this with the Colony last week ..........the excitement was obvious :)

It's end of year party time, and last year was so much fun we doing it at Funhaven again. If you need directions (it's behind IKEA, off of Pinecrest) click on the 'Visit' tab on their website.

Pizza and drinks will be served. Our group booking is from 6PM - 7:30.

Direct from Funhaven, here are some points to keep in mind.
  • Socks are a health and safety requirement of our Jungle Gym/Ballocity area. Please ensure your group all have socks, or they will be available for purchase at the facility for $2 per pair.
  • Running shoes are a safety requirement for the Climbing Wall, and will definitely make your Laser Tag experience more comfortable! 
  • Guests need to be taller than 44 inches to ride the Bumper Cars, and they need to weigh more than 45lbs to experience the Climbing Wall.
NOTE: Swim up BBQ is in Claudette Cain park Wed night. I'll post more details in another post.

For those of you camping with us this coming weekend- expect a blog post on Wed night to talk through the details.

See you tomorrow!!

2013 Beavers. Remaining meetings/events.

He Everyone. Three marquee events ( +one more regular meeting in the Gym) remaining on the 2013 beaver calendar. I need your help pulling together all the details to get our Colony fully registered an accounted for at each of these events. ........Please email me your reply to the yellow highlighted sections below. Thank you :)

Tuesday May 14 - Regular meeting in our Gym. Well, outside of our Gym if possible. If the weather participates we'll be out back having fun in the schoolyard. If it's unseasonably cool, we'll have our last regular meeting in the Gym.

Tuesday May 21 - End of year Pizza Party, at Funahaven :) Details to follow.


Wednesday May 22 - 1st Manotick "Swim Up" ceremony, at Claudette Cain Park. This is an annual event, to recognize the youth as they 'swim up' to the next level of scouting. Some of our white tail beavers will be 'swimming up' and joining Cub packs in the fall, this is where that happens. You'll spot more info on the 1st Manotick group site by clicking here.


Needed - If your son is planning on attending Cub's in the fall, please let me know ASAP (Early registration forms will be available shortly). As parents and siblings are invited to attend Swim Up as well (Free bbq!) we need a headcount. Please let me know how many in total from your family will be attending Swim Up on the 22nd.

May 24, 25, 26 - All Sections Camp. - Only one of our five leaders are confirmed available for this full weekend event .....and that would be me (Dan). The show will go on, but as we are short leadership coverage, it will be mandatory for this event that a parent attends with their Beaver. It is worth noting that it is extremely rare for beavers to attend with out a parent even with full leadership coverage, so only one leader should not change much for this weekend. You have the option to arrive on Friday night, or Saturday morning. Details posted here.


Needed - Please RSVP to me via email with: Your (Accompanying parent's) full name. Your Beavers full name. Your planned arrival date (Either Friday or Saturday).

With these events planned, this will wrap up our 2013 A Colony beaver session.  .......what a lot of fun we've had :)

May 7, 2013 - Bowling!

Hey Folks, we've been informed that our Gym is not available to us this week - there is a school function booked.

Instead of meeting in the Gym, we've booked the North Gower Bowling Alley (Google Map Link :) .....Yup, we're taking A Colony bowling. Details will follow, I just wanted to get this posted tonight to provide adequate "heads up" for next week's plan.

EDIT details!!:

We've booked the North Gower Bowling Alley from 6 to 7:30. It's going to be a very casual, fun filled evening of bowling and not much else. There is no cost for the event, but please be sure to bring indoor shoes.

I'll post more details later this weekend.
