This Week 2012-Aug-20 The Quest for the Ultimate Chip

It was the seventh year of the darkening, and only the most daring of the diggers ever showed their heads above ground into the ‘above’. But as it ever was with the darkening, the Tunnel Lord grew restless; the taste of the potato was gnawing away in the back of the mind and all thought that would normally be used for ruling the tunnels had been turned to crunchy potato delicacies.
It appears that the Tunnels would not return to normal until the brave chip crews could be formed and sent out into the ‘above’ to bring back the crispy golden treasures that would sate the Tunnel Lord’s appetite.
It was the time of the Quest for the Ultimate Chip!

Our chip crews shall be formed, given enough financial reserves from the Tunnel coffers and sent out to return with the “Ultimate Chip”. These will not be cold but hot; not soggy, but perfectly crisp. They will not be white, brown nor black – but golden. They will not taste of carrot, pumpkin or turnip; but gloriously of potato!

Bring your wet weather gear, I hear the ‘above’ suffers from an inclemency spoken of as ‘rain’.

Meet at the hall at 7:30 pm
Pick up at the hall 9:30 pm.

### We also need a show of hands tonight of those Venturers attending our Unit night at the Whitehorse Showtime & After Party (2012-Aug-31) as we will need to buy the tickets ASAP.

2012-Aug-31 Whitehorse Showtime & Party

This year the show is titled “Knight at the Museum”…. Sir Lancelot is on a quest to find his Grail, but he seems to have gotten a little lost and ended up in a museum. With help from a group of young visitors they search high and low throughout the museum to find Sir Lancelot’s Grail. Will they ever find what they’re looking for, is it in the Africa exhibit or maybe it’s with the inventors? Perhaps the stars of stage and screen have hidden it? One thing’s for certain, they’ll all have a lot of fun searching. Come and join us for our 48th season and spend a night with a Knight at the Museum.

Our unit will be attending the 8:00 pm session on Friday 31st August as this is the Venturer night with the Venturer party following the performance. The party finishes up at midnight 1am!
Please let Kira Robertson (or a Leader) know if you are attending as we will need to purchase tickets to ensure we can all attend.

Ticket Prices
Adults: $22.00
Venturer Ticket (includes party): $22.00
