#NCM HighlandGames Loch Ness Cruise Banner

Here we go again, lots of anipals get in a boat and cruise murky waters where lore has it that a super big, and rather scary, critter calls home. Does that sound smart? Nope, not at all – and that’s why we’re doing it! Meet down by the locks where we’ll all climb aboard the SS NipClub yacht to cruise the beautiful Loch Ness. We’ll explore the whole 37 kilometer expanse of Loch Ness, starting at the south end and make our way north – going through all of the interconnected rivers that comprise the beautiful water way. The Loch Ness is known for it’s wonderful fresh water that houses fertile peat and various fish and other assorted marine life. Our Entertainment Leader(s) will point out the highlights along our cruise, and if we’re lucky we may even see Nessie, the monster that lives in the Loch Ness. What? Did I say that? Yes, I did, seems like we’ve got a date with the Loch Ness monster! So grab your life jacket, pin your kilt closed (don’t want to give a free show you know), and join the Entertainment Leader(s) during the time(s) listed below and you will be guaranteed a great time!

Date: Sat Oct 11     Time: 8:00 – 9:00 pm EDT     Host: @WinstonTabby               .                                                                                                                   @meisroxythepug

 

#NCM HighlandGames Name the Scotsman Banner

This is a trivia contest with all things Scottish! There’s a monster that lives in a river in Scotland, what’s it called? What’s the largest city in Scotland? Name the original singer of AC/DC? What? Yup, he was Scottish! Okay anipals now that you have the gist of things, come on down to the grassy knoll and gather around in a nice big circle while our Entertainment Leader(s) thrill you with a game of Name the Scottish man, Woman, or Critter! Heck, if you know some Scottish trivia, don’t hold back – you will be encouraged to participate too! Know the answer, then tweet right in – and if you have a question just tweet it out, it’s going to be a free for all knowledge fest of all things Scottish. Join the Entertainment Leader(s) during the time(s) listed below and bring a blanket because with the windy weather, the kilt your wearing may just not be enough to keep you warm. Oh, and there will be a prize for the anipal with the most correct answers!

Date: Sat Oct 11     Time: 7:00 – 8:00 pm EDT     Hosts: @skye613                            .                                                                                                                    @mariodacat

 

#NCM HighlandGames Kilt Races Banner

Kilts will be a fluttering about during this fun event! We are going to have a little fun with you while you wear your kilt with Scottish pride. Every anipal will be given a lovely kilt to wear and then the games begin: there will be hopscotch, pole vaulting, long jumping, and a race around the NipClub track! We’ll even have little rubber squeaky toys for the dogs to chase about in their kilts, as well as lasers that beam lights for the cats to pounce on. The goal of this event is to have as much fun scampering and skittering about while keeping your kilt in place and decent like (you know what I mean). Anipals will join the Entertainment Leader(s) during the time(s) listed below, and lead through a series of fun events (and a few made up ones that we didn’t list) to see which anipal will be named King or Queen of the Kilt Critter Race (crown included). So come on over to the Kilt Critter Race track during the time(s) listed and join in the fun!

Date: Sun Oct 12  Time: 9:00 – 10:00 AM EDT   Host: @3phibotticelli`s Sadie

 

#NCM HighlandGames Bagpipe Boogie Banner

Join us for the official closing of the October, Highlander Games themed NipClub pawty. For NipClub Highlander Games attendees, the most memorable event is the massing of the pipe bands. We expect up to 20 or more pipers will join in the fun and march and play together. Anipals everywhere will join in the thunderous rendition of traditional favorites like Scotland the Brave or Amazing Grace, and other crowd-pleasing favorites like AC/DC (what? just making sure your paying attention!). Kilted fuzzies (and feathered, and scaled, etc.) will gather on Bag Pipe Lane, puff puff puff on their little bag pipes to make them bellow and skirl, and jam away while anipals gather in the street and clap their paws and stomp their feet (welly, really paws) to the glorious emanating sounds! Some critters will even be so moved by the sounds that they’ll sing along… don’t believe me? Well check it out here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJBgSsVyQns)! Look for the Entertainment Leader(s) listed below, and join in the Bagpipe Boogie fun – and if your the best bagpiper and or dancer, you could win yourself a nice prize!

Date: Sun Oct 12     Time: 10:00 – 11:00 AM EDT     Host: TBA

 

#NCM HighlandGames Higland Dance Banner

Well put on your ghillies and come on out and dance! Don’t know what ghillies are, or even if you have a pair, don’t worry about it – we didn’t know either, so had to look it up. Ghillies are the type of shoes worn at highland dance competitions, they are soft and flexible like ballet slippers. So grab some ghillies and put them on your paws (fins if your a fish, and just toss one on your head if your a snake) and come on out and dance! The super pawesome NipClub DJs will be stirring up the tunes, and you are invited to strut your stuff solo style, or as a twosome (threesomes and foursomes are okay as well, heck, if you want the whole lot of you can break out in a River Dance scene) – and dance up a storm. The Highland Dance games will be in the traditional style, on the balls of your paws (or whatever you have) with some integral upper body, arm, and paw movements (if your a bird, you are free to use your wings and bob your head – you look pretty cool when you do that). The best Highland Dancer will win a prize, so make sure to join the Entertainment Leader listed in the time(s) below and come on out and have a good time.

Date: Sat Oct 11     Time: 6:00 – 7:00 pm EDT     Host: TBA

 

#NCM HighlandGames Heavy Toss Banner

Hope you’ve been working out anipals, because the October NipClub pawty will test your strength and might! The Heavy Weight Tossing games are vast, so lift your kilt and scamper on over to the game area. We’ll start out with Caber Toss, where anipals will grab a long, tapered pine log & toss it end-over-end to see who gets it the farthest. Next is Stone Put, a lot like a shot put, but with a stone (doh!). Followed by Hammer Throw…sounds safe, don’t you think? Just like it sounds, you grab the hammer with your paws, or beak, whirl it about your head and see who tosses it the farthest. Yes, all of these mighty fine, thrill seeking yet virtually safe games have been planned for your October Nipclub enjoyment. Medic on hand for thunks on the head (hee hee!). Join the Entertainment Leader during the time(s) listed below, and you’ll be set for some guaranteed fun! Prize for the most creative heavy weight tosser!

Date: Sat Oct 11     Time: 5:00 – 6:00 pm EDT     Host: @cherylpoestone

#NCM Australia 2014 Games.BarrierReef

It’s magical, it’s wondrous, it’s the Great Barrier Reef tour! We guarantee that you have never seen anything like it. Join up with one of the Entertainment Team member(s) during the time(s) listed below and you will be in for a treat. The tour wills tart out with scuba diving and snorkeling lessons – wet suits are option, but swimming suits are not (okay, they may be option). Jump in to your skivvies and join us by the water. Our Entertainment Team member will get you comfortable in your equipment and teach you how to dive, use your fins, and make sure your buoyancy is just right for you to float about and take in all the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Tours start, well, whenever every anipal is comfy and then we splash off – bobbing and diving throughout the waters – but just looky-no touchy, the Reef is special and we don’t want to harm it. For a sneak peak of what awaits you click here: Great Barrier Reef. See you at the beach!

Date: Sat Sept 13     Time: 8:00 – 9:00 pm EDT     Host: @OneWhiteDog Date: Sun  Sept 14    Time: 10:00 – 11:00 am EDT   Host: @3PhiBotticelli

#NCM Australia 2014 Games.Boomerang

Boomerang, crikey mate you toss one of those things and they just come back at ya! Well, that’s the goal! Join one of the Entertainment Team members during the time(s) listed below and enter the Bubberah Toss game. Every anipal will be led through calisthenics where we’ll all reap the benefits of flexing our arms (or wings… this will be rather tough if you are a snake, so serpent-types may just want to wriggle about) until we’re all warmed up. Then the Entertainment Leader will guide you through some Bubberah Toss practice tosses – be careful though, we just installed new lights in the outfield, so try not to break anything (I’m sensing danger here). After a brief warm up we’ll take turns tossing our Bubberahs down the long field where we’ll see who can get it out the farthest and have it return closest to them – all boomerang-stying, like! The anipal with the closest return wins a prize – one point for every returned Bubberah, minus 5 points for every broken outfield light, or smacking upside another opponents noggin! Hee hee hee! Okay, well, don’t do that!

Date:  Sat Sept 13      Time: 7:00 – 8:00 pm EDT    Host:   @petsarefound Date:  Sun Sept 14     Time: 8:00 – 9:00 am EDT    Host:  @petsarefound

#NCM Australia 2014 Games.Didgeridoo

You have good lungs? Okay, with the exception of fishes, whom we will help out, do you have good lungs? If you do and you’ve always wanted to give blowing in to a big, long, wooden, trumpet like object we’ve got the thing for you! First things first however – we’ll all gather down by the wondrous Sydney Opera House to watch our wondrous Entertainment Leader perform didgeridoo NipClub-style! Join us during the time(s) listed below and watch our Entertainment Mastro(s) create magic as they ‘puff puff puff’ on their didgeridoo, making glorious sounds while they move around on stage and regale you all with magically moments. Then get ready, it’s your turn! You will be told the history of the didgeridoo, then you’ll be lead through carving (with anipal-safe tools, mind you) out your own didgeridoo, and next playing your didgeridoo! Join in the fun mate!

Date:  Sat Sept 13    Time:  5:00 – 6:00 pm EDT    Host:  @HenryTheCat2002                           .                                                                                              @toughteddybear

.#NCM Australia 2014 Games.Trivia

It is what it says – a great big joyful fun event of trivia! We’ll gather around a bon fire, huddle all tight and play a delightful game of Australia Trivia. What is the largest Australian inland city? When is Australia Day? What animal carries its’ babies in a pouch? What is Australia’s tallest bird? Our Entertainment Team member(s) will ask questions, give clues, and all you have to do is be the first one to answer and you win a cuddle with a kangaroo! Okay, well, maybe that was a stretch, but still you’ll have fun. We’ll play Australia Trivia, round and round we’ll go – if, at the end of the game you are the anipal with the most right answers you will win a prize! Join us during the time(s) listed and tweet to the Entertainment Team member(s) listed, letting them know you are ready to play Australia Trivia and you could end up winning a cool prize!

Your NipClub Entertainment Team Needs YOU!!

#NipClub Entertainments Recruitment Poster

Every month our NipClub weekend pawty includes games and entertainments brought to you by members of our pawesome Entertainment Team. As well as thinking up ideas for your enjoyment, members of the team also act as leaders for the various games and entertainments that go on. From jet-skiing to snowball fights, trivia quizzes to fashion shows, all our games and entertainments have one thing in common – they’re led by one of our Entertainment Team.

Now, here’s where YOU come in.

Our Entertainment Team get lots of satisfaction from their work, but they could use some extra colleagues to help out! We have quite a number of pals who can come up with great ideas, but what we really need right now is some volunteers to help to lead the games and entertainments.

It’s great fun and an exhilarating thing to do, and everyone who leads an entertainment of any kind has the satisfaction of knowing that they’re helping our charity in a special way. They’re also helping to provide a lot of laughter and enjoyment for our members, and making a big contribution to the weekend’s success.

Don’t worry if you’ve never done anything like this before. We’ll pair you up with a current member of the team so you can see how it’s done before you have to do it on your own, and you can ask them any questions you might have and share their best advice and tips.

We’ll do our best to find you the most time-zone-friendly entertainment slot, and of course we’ll understand if you can’t always be available each month – we just need you to let us know as soon as possible anytime you can’t make it.

Interested?

Please DM @Doggymolly and tell her that you’d like to apply to join the Entertainment Team.

Go for it!

Let #Nipclub get you ready for Australia!

 

In loving memory of @JessieJaney, a wonderful friend to #Nipclub, we will be returning to Australia for our monthly pawty September 13-14.

@janejessey akubra.  @jessiejaney akubra hat

Jane loved the Outback and it`s animals.  She also loved Twitter`s Anipal Community, and was on the original #Nipclub Monthly`s Graphics team.  She was an advocate of letting anipals` natural beauty show through on the avatars she made, preferring to feature an anipal in whole rather than adding their head to a human body.  In honor of Jane, #Nipclub Graphic artists will feature anipals in their natural fur.

If you were fortnate enough to have had Jane make you an Aussie avatar in the past, please use it to honor her.  If you no longer have it, let @RealFakeGator know, as he has access to many of the avatars she made.

If you don`t already have an Aussie avatar, no worries, we can help!  You can wear one of the Akbra hats that Jane added to many of her Aussie avatars,  while posing with Outback animals, sporting backgrounds of Australian scenery, Aboriginal art or Australian artifacts.  As much as possible, each avatar will be a one of a kind…made especially for you!

Traditional tennis scoring is likely not what you’ll find here, and well, other than we wear white outfits, that’s about all you’ll find in similiarities! But other than that, come on down and join us in our fun! Good, solid tennis (well, sorta tennis) related fun is what you’ll find when you join in the frivolity! Tweet out to the Entertainment Leader noted, and we’ll come on out and create some fun for you to join in!

We may not know what question to ask, but we sure do know the anser! Join in the fun and get ready to answer questions where timing of the answer is key – first answer gets the title of “Winner!” and the overall winner may get a big prize to hold and keep precious!

The goal of this game is to catch all, or as many, of the balls that are flung down the long, grassy knoll. The Entertainment Leader will get things ready – get the anipals all lined up, where you’ll meet up – and then announce a chase! “One, two, three, go!” All anipals lined up will chase and try to catch all the balls – there are no rules, so if you have a friend on the green gathering the balls and you feel lazy, instead of chasing them you go get in a golf cart and get them well, then that’s up to you! But what ever you do – scream/tweet out how many balls you have caught becase the anipal with the most balls found is the winner!

Date: Sun Aug 10   Time: 10:00 – 11:00 am EDT   Host: @3PhiBotticelli
