Thank you Pepperlane Manor Bed & Breakfast (Elaine & Greg Shanks)….

On behalf of the Chedabucto CC’s Juniors, I extend my sincere thanks to Pepperlane Manor Bed & Breakfast (, Court Street, Guysborough, for the donation of its recyclables’ refund to the Club’s Junior’s program.

Pepperlane Manor owners Elaine and Greg Shanks generously gave all the proceeds from their returned recyclables to the Club so as to assist the Junior League’s expenses.  Elaine and Greg’s kindness is appreciated.

Thank you & duckie race winners…..

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Chedabucto CC’s chicken BBQ, duckie race, crown & anchor, and stick draws have been successfully achieved for another year. Rather than attempt to thank the many who pitched in, I’m going to let it go via today’s salutation.

Please do not interpret this message’s brevity as an indication of a lack of appreciation; quite the contrary, ALL OF YOU ARE RECOGNIZED AND TRULY APPRECIATED!  Those who donated their time, prizes, skills, sold and/or bought duckie tickets and the many who purchased chicken— you made it happen!

The 2014 duckie-race winners were as follows:

1st @ $500.00: Cathy Hart, Boylston.  The ticket was in the name of Cathy’s 20 month-old grandson, Rylan Hart, Calgary, Alberta.

2nd @ $300.00: Shauna Brymer, Boylston

3rd @ $100.00: Lisa Rafuse, Chester, NS

Best wishes to all for an enjoyable and healthy balance of our too-rapidly-passing summer.


Chicken BBQ / duckie race / stick draws / etc.

Tomorrow — Sunday — is a big day for the Chedabucto CC.

The games of chance start at 3:00 PM — with musical entertainment.

The chicken BBQ will be from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM — rain or shine. The Club has purchased 160 half chickens therefore it is more than vital — and financial required — that all be sold.  Please bring your appetite and a neighbour or two to the rink for a right-some-good feed or a to-go order.

Holly has the bar stocked so there will be a cool beverage or two for those wishing such refreshments.

Because of the generosity of so many, there is a good number of prizes for the stick draws.  BA and her team are set to look after you for that portion of tomorrow’s fund raising.

Due to the tide’s schedule the duckie race will be at approximately 8:00 PM +/- , also on Sunday.  We are going to need another 6 people to be in the the brook with me for the race to work.  There will be three dumping the ducks from laundry baskets and three with me to hold the catch for the finish line.  The first three ducks to pass through the doorway in the net will the the lucky $500, $300 or $100 critters.  Duckie tickets will be available for purchase throughout the BBQ.

Hopefully we will see many of you tomorrow at the rink.
