2011: A few changes

...To Route 3:

Ben Bella = New Route 3 Bus Captain
{note: he deserved it after willingly wearing this at our Commitment Service for 2011}

New Team. There was a major reorg in the Blue Bomber Crew as a whole. As a result, we lost a few team members and gained a few.

We now have 12 members on our Route.

The last half of 2010, our numbers were not "anything to write home about." In fact one weekend we had 1 kid! As a whole we averaged around 15-20 per week.

Some of our goals as a Route this year:

~To make sure that EVERY kid living in our neighborhoods are coming on our bus.
~To expand to a new area.
~To spend more time connecting to our kids every week.

...To The Blue Bomber Crew:

All teams were downsized in order to run more efficiently and to help support changes in our Gym's structure.

There is now a "Home Base" Team that supports all activities taking place in the gym. All activities will be rotated weekly to keep kids excited about coming.

Some of the things the Home Base team is setting up in the gym:
a station for girls to make felt flower and feather headbands,
and an Arts & Crafts center for puppet making and coloring.

Random Blue Bomber Fact:

Took the youth group to Hollister a few weeks ago. While in the restaurant a group of kids tagged the Blue Bomber (one of them was caught by our brave bus driver and later arrested for public intoxication while on probation). Luckily it was done with oil based markers so everything came right off.....

but HOW DARE THEY!!!!!
