Klondike 2012 winners!

On Sat., Feb.11 2012 the 3rd Ottawa Scouts entered two sleds in the annual Heritage Area Klondike Derby which took place at Lac Beauchamps, QC this year.

We are proud to say that both of our teams – our third year team and our mixed team of multiple years – each won FIRST PLACE in their category for the event!  Congratulations Scouts on a great effort and fantastic result.

Both of our 3rd Ottawa entries worked closely as a team, supporting each other and with lots of energy during the course of the entire day.  The 3rd Ottawa has been participating in the Klondike Derby for six years now, and in the last 3 years we have won first place for at least one of our teams.

Here are some images of the event.

Go 3rd Ottawa!

The new 3rd Ottawa Website

Way back in 2004, the 3rd Ottawa made the bold move to join the Internet era and launch our own website with it’s own domain name (thirdottawa.com).  Since that first site, we have not updated our style, design or the technology we use to manage the website.  This means we were still using arcane HTML software, FTP software, and other acronyms many never knew or knew how to use.

This new site is built using a content management system called WordPress. It will enable us to have many of the leaders and volunteers who run the 3rd Ottawa add content, update calendars, and generally provide you, the parents and youth who are so much a part of the 3rd Ottawa programs, with all the information you need!

Enjoy the site – click on the Section you are interested in (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Venturers) and you will be on your way!
