The Unconquered Seminole Tribe had a fantastic time at the F. Burton Smith Valentine’s Weekend Campout! Our Tribe had great attendance, and we won FOUR awards!: (1) Golden Whisk – 1st Place; (2) Best War Game (which our Princesses came up with) – 1st Place; (3) Campsite – 2nd Place; (4) War Games (points) – 2nd Place! The Seminoles hosted this campout together with the Iroquois — many thanks to that great Tribe! Our Tribe enjoyed a quick stop at Lone Cabbage on Friday night, where our Princesses and Braves got to stomp on a Gator – which is always fun for a Seminole! The Princesses loved the Valentine’s Dance — and many thanks to the organizers for planning such a fun event.
The freezing cold night made the beautiful day Saturday even more enjoyable. The girls got to go fishing – some for the first time, and some even caught some fish!
All in all a great weekend and perfect way for the Braves to escape any Valentine’s Day obligations with their squaws!
On March 1st, 2015 The Mighty Blackfeet had a bowling outing at Waterford Lakes Firkin Kegler. This was an amazing event with awesome company, food, drinks, games and BOWLING! The Blackfeet princesses did not use the bumpers and learned how to aim for the pins with focus, determination and persistence in spite of difficulty of this game. We are very proud of our girls and look forward to our next Blackfeet adventure! Noonway – Chief Steps on Frogs
Noonway! The Seminole’s loved the addition of Doe Lake to the Nation’s campsite rotation! Our Princesses spent many hours in the great lake fishing for bait and hunting the lowly gators. As part of their achievements the Princesses took their Braves for a “short” 3-mile hike around the great lake. We saw plenty of nature’s creatures; squirrels, frogs, birds… and an old sofa which they were sure was a campsite of an old Seminole warrior! The Seminoles’ talents and skills were recognized before the Nation at Tonka, with two awards! Great job girls! Although the nights were “crisp” the days were gorgeous allowing for a wonderful weekend had by all at this beautiful campsite! Noonway!
The Seminole Tribe had a great day ice skating at RDV last Saturday! We had a great turnout with 7 dads, and even a mom, and some siblings! It seemed there were more Seminoles than any other tribe at the rink. Many thanks to the Nation Chiefs for arranging this fun day, and thanks to the RDV staff for letting us have the pro rink all to ourselves!
The Seminole Tribe had a blast at the Roper campout, enjoying the massive Tonka bonfire made up of Christmas trees, and enjoyed an incredible Colombian meat dish Friday night! Who knew you could wrap beef in a towel, throw it in a fire, and it would come out perfectly tender in delicious?! We had a good turnout with 9 dads and 9 Princesses, and just missed winning the Hula Hoop Contest. All in all, a great weekend of daddy/daughter bonding. Looking forward to avoiding the Valentine’s Day crowds at the next one!
The Seminole Tribe gathered at the Lampshire house to decorate their parade float with a ‘North Pole’ theme. The girls had a blast and the dad’s had some (root?) beers…. The float came out great and won an award at the awesome Christmas Parade!
On January 30th; The Mighty Blackfeet met in the Unicorp founders suite, at the Amway arena to watch the Orlando Solar Bears destroy the South Carolina Stingrays, 4-0. Even thou the Stingrays took twice as many shots as the Solar Bears, Orlando shut them out. The Blackfeet took this time together to form a plan of attack for upcoming F. Burton Smith campout. Once again, great times and memories made with our Blackfeet family. Noonway! Chief Steps on Frogs
On December 6th, 2014 The Mighty Blackfeet tribe was in the Winter Garden Christmas Parade. There were dozen of the YWilderness tribes participating and the Blackfeet’s float was chosen as the Best YWilderness float! A HUGE NOONWAY to all of the Braves, Princesses and Squaws for working so hard to make this Parade one the City of Winter Garden will remember. Noonway and Merry Christmas, Chief “Steps on Frogs”

On Friday December 5th, The Blackfeet met at “Runs with the Rockies” home to design and decorate their float for the Winter Garden Christmas Parade. The Blackfeet had a strong showing; Braves, princesses and squaws worked through the night to make one of the best floats the Nation has ever seen. When the mosquitoes were at their worst and there was no end in sight, a deliverer of pizza & some firewater gave the tribe a second wind to help it all come together. It was great fellowship and a huge NOONWAY to Runs with the Rockies for hosting. Noonway – Chief Steps on Frogs
On Sunday, November 23 at 1 p.m. at The Dr. Phillips YMCA Family Center
For the 18th year in a row, the YMCA of Central Florida has joined forces with the Samaritan’s Purse in support of Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, which collects and delivers more than 113 million gift-filled shoe boxes to underprivileged children in more than 130 countries.
The Dr. P. Phillips YMCA has always taken great pride and joy in being a part of this incredible and worthwhile effort, and every year we count on Y members and volunteers to make this happen. There were 70 volunteers who participated in our Operation Christmas Child Packing Party this year and the Dr. Phillips YMCA could not of have sent out 1200 gifts for children without their help and support.
THANK YOU to all the individuals who donated gift boxes, gifts, necessities inside those boxes, postage and your precious time to help 1200 children. These children would not receive any Christmas gifts this year due to extreme poverty or environmental disaster without YOU. NOONWAY! Chief Steps on Frogs
