Due to the Noble’s Park – Cemetery Bridge being condemned, it cannot be used to cross the Course. We have been advised by the Clerk of the Course that Scouts may be able to cross to the Grandstand area with the express authority of Race Control when a race is not in progress. This may mean unavoidable delays at the end of racing as, on occasions, there will be practice lap(s) in session. In an emergency, our exit from the Scoreboards side of the course is through the rear gate of the Cemetery into Clypse Road, Willaston.


Due to increased insurance requirements, it will be necessary for all Scout Leaders and adult helpers to sign on at the Race Control Office to obtain a
pass. A passport type photo will be required. You will also be required to supply contact details (phone number) for next of kin.

Thank You
Mike Southall – Leader in Charge

We need at least another 22 (yes 22!) Cubs, Scouts or Explorers to fulfil all thhe necessary jobs.

Thank you

Beaver Scouts’ Five-a-Side Football Competition 2019

Posted on February 15th, 2019 by admin

Beaver Scouts from 1st Douglas Buggane, Onchan Thursday and Peel took part in the five-a-side football competition held on Sunday 20th January at the Tommy Clucas Sports Hall in Peel.

Each Colony entered more than one team, so in total there were seven teams. Each team played all of the others and there were some very exciting games. Over the course of the afternoon 50 goals were scored. Points were awarded as in the football league and the top two teams then played again in a final.

Before the final a penalty competition was held. Jake, a Cub Scout from Peel, 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. Three Beaver Scouts tied for first place. They were Rafferty from Peel, Fynlo from Onchan and Dylan from Onchan.

Peel A team and Onchan Thursday A team were the top two teams so played each other in the final. Both teams played brilliantly and it looked as though there would be no score at full time. However, in the final few seconds of the game Onchan scored.

All the Beavers in the final were awarded  medals as were the three Beavers who won the penalty contest. The winners, Onchan A team, were presented with the Football Shield and a replica and Peel A team received a runners up shield.

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.

Explorers lend a hand (or two) with car parking at Tynwald Day

Posted on July 11th, 2018 by admin

Explorers, leaders and adult helpers did their bit to ensure the smooth running of this years Tynwald day celebration.

The ‘Wolf Packs’ patch was the traders car park and by the end of the morning they had perfected numerous ways of directing the public to a parking spot. The one using an Explorer as a ‘sign board’ increased visibility but did nothing for the arm muscles!
