January 29, 2013

Regular meeting in the Gym tonight folks. Please try to remember to bring your beaver buggies, we'll be talking about them, building a little, and talking about our Moster Buggy Rally next week.

Some fun run around games of course too (Mini sticks was a huge hit last week!) so please bring some indoor shoes.

NOTE: I have collected a number of neckers, hats and parts of uniforms. Please do your best to find all of your Beaver's uniform parts, and we'll do our best to ensure that everyone has all of their kit tonight too.

Beaveree heads up

Beaveree is tomorrow! .....click that link for my original post with all the details.

The only part of our uniform required, is the necker. Please bundle your beaver up, and put the necker on the outside of their winter duds. Our unique maroon/grey necker will help your Beaver's leaders identify our otherwise unrecognizable collection of bundled up beavers. .......remember, this is a Beaveree, there will be beavers from all over the region in attendance.

Beaver Buggies!

It's that time of year again folks, it's Beaver Buggy time!!!! over the next 3 or 4 weeks we will be talking about and building buggies; your beaver will hopefully get pretty excited about building and racing his very own 2013 edition Beaver Buggy.

What is a Beaver Buggy, you ask? ...........it's kind of like a kub-kar, but without all of the pressure. When you first see it, it will be a mere block of wood, with some nails and wheels. Your Beaver (with your help) will turn these crude materials, into an awesome racing mobile. On February 5th, we will have a giant set of tracks setup in in our gym, and we'll be racing Buggies all evening. Not long after that, our white tails will be invited to join in with a local Cub pack, to race their buggies with Kub-Kar's. Fun!

(Please remember to bring indoor shoes tonight! :)

Tobogganing and Beaveree

4:20 PM Jan 15 update - see you at the hill at 6:15!

On January 15, we'll be having an evening of tobogganing at Four Seasons park, our neighborhood sliding hill (Limited parking available by the tennis courts). I would like to encourage all parents, and even siblings to join us - it should be a fun hour of sliding over at the hill.

Please dress warm! (Toboggans / slides will not be provided, please bring your own).

NOTE: This is a public park there may be other folks enjoying the slopes with us that evening. If the weather or slope conditions are horribly rotten, we will call it off and meet in the Gym for a regular indoor meeting instead. I'll update this blog post at 3PM on the 15th with firm direction.

Beaveree (click, for details) is on Saturday the 26th. The cost of this event is $5/Beaver, and it runs from 1 to 4PM out at the Greely Legion. I'll have a sign up sheet with us at the toboggan hill, please bring $5 so we can firm up our numbers for the event organizers. .......as per the event details, please bring a mug and a shoe-box/Kleenex box!!

Sick beaver?

Just a friendly note, it's been a crazy year for contagious illnesses. If you have not had some sort of noro-something, or gastro-whatever, or other such ailment in the past couple of months ......consider your family lucky.

Please keep your kiddo home from Beavers until they are 24 hours symptom free (We'll go ahead and borrow this policy, used by all the local schools). Missing a Beaver night to get a good night sleep on the road back to health, is never a bad idea. Thanks folks :)
