2011 Council Beaveree - Wild West

1st Manotick A Colony had a marvelous time at the Voyageur Council Beaveree despite the rain. Over 250 Beavers were in attendance at this 3 year event. We camped at Lombardy Fair grounds the night before and during the night we were woken up by the sounds of Coyotes howling in the night along with the yipping of their young pups. A fitting orchestra given that the theme to the council beaveree was 'Wild West'.

The activities ranged from a western obstacle course, Horse shoe toss, Attack the cows with a trebuchet, Campfire , Bull horn toss, cowboy hat decoration, Tin can alley 'Rifle' range (elastic bands), Snakes in the grass and more!
We all had fun!

Watch this space more photos to come
