Four Beaver Scouts from 1st Douglas Buggane Beaver Colony recently received the very first ‘Year of our Island’ badges.

They earned these by completing four of the ‘Year of our Island’ trails, the Silverdale to Castletown walk; the “Trees for Life” walk in Conrhenny plantation; the Ayres
nature reserve walk and the Douglas river walk. The Beavers received their badges and special certificates from Minister Thomas and Miss August-Hanson MLC.

Beaver Scouts’ sunflower challenge

Posted on November 13th, 2018 by admin

 This year Beaver Scouts have been challenged to grow a sunflower from a seed that they planted at a Colony meeting. Several Colonies took part.
The first photos have now arrived.
They are from 1st Douglas Buggane. One is of Lenny with his 87 inch sunflower, which was the tallest in the Colony. The other is Finlo’s, which was 48 inches  tall (but it was still taller than him so he is really proud!).

2nd Onchan Beavers – Lawn Bowls Competition

Posted on July 28th, 2018 by admin

Well done to those Beavers who attended the Lawn Bowls Competition in Onchan Park on Saturday 7 July. It was a slightly misty start, but that didn’t hinder performance or enjoyment.

Eight Beavers from both the 2nd Onchan Tuesday Colony and the 2nd Onchan Thursday Colony played two rounds of Lawn Bowls Activities – nearest the jack, in between the cones, hitting the marker etc. It was great fun and really well organised by volunteers and members of the Onchan Lawn Bowls Club in Onchan Park.

Once the two rounds had been played, two Beavers from each Colony with the highest scores then played against each other in the Final. Taylor and Oliver from the Tuesday Colony and Malane and Jayden from the Thursday Colony. They all completed one round of Activities – it was very close but the winner by one point was Oliver from the 2nd Onchan Tuesday Colony with Malane from the Thursday Colony in second place.

Oliver received the Lawn Bowls Beaver Trophy 2018 from Bev Hewson (Assistant Island Commissioner – Beavers), and everyone taking part received medals. It was a lovely morning, supported by family members. Thank you very much to the Lawn Bowls Club for hosting the group and they hope to be back next year to do it all again.

Assistance required by the TT/MGP Association

Posted on July 11th, 2018 by admin

The IOM TT/MGP Association has again asked for our assistance to fill the information packs given to everyone marshalling at this years Manx Grand Prix.

This is open to Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network, leaders, helpers and parents.

The only uniform required is your necker.

Meet at the rear of the TT Grandstand for 10am Sunday, 12th. August.

We are usually finished by lunchtime. Obviously the more hands the faster the job gets done! Also, there is usually a ‘goodies bag’ for participants.

The TT/MGP association really appreciate the help of the Scouts as we do in 2 to 3 hours what used to take them a week!

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.
