Recently, Burnaby Mountain District’s 49th Guides went on a special outing for an end-of-season finale to the Aurora Winter Festival at the PNE.
The unit was able to make this a fun and affordable outing (including a ride pass!) because the girls were fantastic cookie sellers in the fall campaign — well done, girls!
There weren’t a lot of people there, so there was barely any waiting in line. A small assortment of rides were open, and they rode the tube slide and Super Shot, which were conveniently located beside each other. At one point the girls even stayed on the ride, time and time again.
They downloaded the app on a Guider phone, so along the Mystical Worlds lights display stroll, the girls found icons and scanned QR codes to complete the quest and each received a souvenir jingle bell ornament as a prize.
The girls had a blast running around, and dancing in the disco igloo. It was a fun and exciting outing for the Guides. What a great way to finish 2019 with Guiding friends, and an awesome reward for an especially successful cookie campaign.
