Beavers’ Challenge 2017

Posted on February 12th, 2018 by admin

The 2017 Challenge was based on the Manx Monopoly board and the aim was to ‘collect’ tokens and sets of the same type.

This could be done in one of three ways:

  • visit the place/token
  • invite a speaker to talk about the place/token
  • carry out some activity associated with the place/token

Three Colonies completed the challenge during 2017; 2nd Onchan Thursday, 1st Douglas Buggane and 1st Douglas Loaghtan.

Read details of how the three Colonies completed the Challenge:

Beaver Scouts’ Five-a-Side Football Competition 2018

Posted on February 11th, 2018 by admin

Beaver Scouts from eight Colonies namely Ballaugh, 1st Douglas Buggane, 1st Douglas Loaghtan, Onchan Tuesday, Onchan Thursday, Peel Tuesday, Peel Friday and Ramsey took part in the five-a-
side football competition held on Sunday 21st January at the Tommy Clucas Sports Hall in Peel.

Some Colonies entered more than one team, so in total there were eleven teams. These were split into two leagues with each team playing all the others in its group. There were some very exciting games and over the course of the afternoon 43 goals were scored despite some fantastic saves from some of the goalkeepers. The winner in each league qualified for the final.

Before the final a penalty competition was held. Aaron Rumney, a young Leader from Onchan, agreed to be the goalkeeper and every Beaver Scout took turns to try to score a penalty against him.
Those who were successful went through to the next round to try to beat the goalie again. Two Beaver Scouts tied for first place. They were Henry from Onchan Tuesday and Aidan from
Ramsey.

Peel year 3 and Onchan Thursday ‘Bulls’ topped their leagues so went on to play each other in the final. Both teams played brilliantly and at full time the score was 1 – 0 to Onchan.

 

All the Beavers in the final were awarded medals as were the two Beavers who won the penalty contest. The winners, Onchan Thursday ‘Bulls’, were presented with the Football Shield and a replica
and Peel received a runners up shield.

After a refreshment break, the Beavers gathered together in one very large circle for a massive ‘pass the parcel’ game where several parcels were passed around simultaneously. After this there was a game of musical statues. Adam, a member of 5th Douglas Scouts provided the music for these games.

Everyone had a great time and the afternoon finished with every Beaver Scout and Leader being presented with a special 30th Anniversary Beaver woggle. All Beavers, Leaders and helpers also received cupcakes which were decorated with 30th Anniversary designs. These had been created by Debbie Cubbon a former Beaver Leader at 1st Marown. In addition each Colony collected specially designed cards which had been very kindly produced by the Isle of Man Post Office to celebrate the Anniversary. These cards will be written by the Beavers at future Colony meetings and then posted to someone to share the Anniversary celebration.
