Well, just returned last night from a "most-amazing" experience. Saturday,
over 7,000 beavers (5-7 year old members of Scouts Canada), over 3,000 parents,
leaders and friends of Scouting converged at Skydome (home of the STILL
reigning World Series Champions: THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS) to celebrate the
20th Anniversary of the Beaver Program. All day Saturday, Beavers visited and
participated in a wide array of activities, displays and games. Saturday night,
a pseudo campfire/concert was held with a number of popular Canadian Children's
artists. After which, 7,000 Beavers bunked down on the playing field for
the largest sleepover to be held in one room! Looking down onto the field,
it looked amazing! When the lights went out, thousands of flashlights
reflected onto the dome, truly a sight to see.
TV coverage was seen on CNN, CBC, Global and the CTV networks....
