ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FUN?

Posted: April 8, 2015 in Uncategorized

The David MacDonald Memorial Fun Day is approaching this SUNDAY April 12 at Walter Baker.

The format is in the name = a FUN day!

Players will be asked to complete challenges in a station to station format. There will be no winners for the “events”.

If for some reason you can not attend at the assigned time choose another time from 9 – 5,. It is important that as many of our young Timbits get a chance to participate in this memorial event.

David MacDonald was an IP instructor who passed away far too soon – a young life cut short. I hope that Jonathan his brother and also a former IP instructor will be able  to attend to give out at least some of the medals.
