Fox Tribe 2008-2009

Ya Ta Hay Mighty Fox Tribe,
It is time to begin our journey for the new season, and I want to be the first to welcome all of our family back to the Papoose Nations.
This year we will be better prepared for our adventures because we have already done these things. And now it falls to us to help guide our new friends that will be joining us.
I trust I can count on each and every one of us to fulfill our responsibility.
Tomorrow night Chief Brian and I will be attending the New Dad's orientation, welcoming our new members to our family.
Then next week we will have the Induction Ceremony. I remember attending last year, not knowing anyone in our tribe, except Jeff and Emma. It is not easy coming into a new group not knowing anyone.
So this year I have decided that we should come together as a group, with all of our families, and enjoy some time to ourselves prior to the induction.
So, please mark your calendars and plan to join us at the First Annual Fox Tribe Family Cook Out. We'll be grillin' and chillin'.
I really hope to have 100% of our group there.
Your invitations are coming your way as we speak.
Now, here is an excellant way to start out the year. You can reply to this post and announce that you will be attending, and you can even tell us what you plan to bring so everyone can see, and know what they should bring.
The cook out will also be our first chance to start planning for the Dinosaur Valley camping trip, we'll pick our meals and plan our activities.
So, I look forward to hearing from you and to seeing you and your families at the Cook Out/Induction Ceremony.

Carnival Update

Wow, what a great time we had at this years carnival, and what an awesome turn out.
The Fox Tribe can proudly say that we had 100% participation this year, all of our dad's and all of our mom's were there to help run our booth activities.
The spin art was our most popular activity, with the wampum bags and dart board right behind.
The lemonade was very refreshing and the posters were being talked about by other tribes.
Our special thanks to Steve for getting the ice for us, I know several of the other tribes really appreciated this, as they found themselves short during the day and very gratefully helped themselves to our stash.
I hope everyone of our dad's took as much pride in our success this weekend as I did.
Now, on to the induction ceremony.
