May 20, 2013 in Beavers
Thursday Beaver meetings always start with a game of Ship Shore. This Term we are keeping a record of the top three Beavers in each game. At the end of the Term we will award a Trophy for the overall winner. Good Luck Beavers!
ST GEORGE’S DAY PARADE & SERVICE
Thursday & Tuesday Beavers had a great turn out at this year’s St George’s Day Parade and Service. For many it was their first Parade, and the Beavers all looked very smart and walked nicely down to the Service in Onchan Park. Both Colonies produced fantastic Banners for the occasion. Well done Beavers!
Thursday Beavers have been enjoying some dry and sunny weather and the opportunity to play outdoors. Last year we managed to hold one Beaver Meeting outside, this year (believe it or not) we have had two already. The Beavers have enjoyed playing a ‘fun’ game of Bulldog!
CHIEF SCOUT’S VISIT
Thursday Beavers were so excited about our visit from the Chief Scout – Bear Grylls. We had a fantastic turnout for the day and lots of help from parents – thank you! As well as the opportunity to meet their hero, our Beavers were also taking part in JOTT – Jamboree on the Trail. JOTT is an annual day for the World Scout Movement to hike together – towards a better future through Scouting! JOTT is held on the second Saturday of May each year. The Beavers walked from Peel Headland to the beach. Once on the beach the Beavers began constructing their sandcastles for the Sandcastle Competition. Thursday Beavers produced two amazing sandcastles – well done boys!
THREE LEGS CHALLENGE
Tuesday Beavers and Thursday Beavers have just completed the 3rd leg of the Three Legs Challenge 2012/13. There was a great turnout of Beavers from both Colonies for the walk from Crosby to Braddan School. The weather was good and the terrain was not too muddy, despite the rain the day before. Lots of mums and dads and dogs joined us for the walk and we completed the challenge in under an hour and a half – a great effort! Well done to Evan W. from the Thursday Colony who has now completed all three legs of the 2012/13 Challenge.
A reminder that the deadline for placing an order for 2nd Onchan T-Shirts, Hoodies & Polo Shirts is the 31. May 2013. Order Forms are available in the Scout Hall or can be downloaded from our Website. Full details and the Order Form can be found here.
From September 2013, we will be accepting payments by BACS for Subscriptions. With more people doing their banking online, some parents will find it easier to make a payment through BACS, but we will also continue to take payment by cheque and cash. If it proves successful, in the future we will look at taking payments for activities and camps also by BACS.
Details will be on the Subs Form that goes out in September.
