Thunder Bay Minor Football 2014/2015 Season

Thunder Bay Minor Football Association 2014/2015 Season - visit their website here!

The Thunder Bay Minor Football Association (T.B.M.F.A.) is organized to develop and operate a Youth Football team  in Thunder Bay and surrounding area; the said purposes and objectives of this Association, through the medium of a supervised, competitive footballprogram, guided and governed by and through its approved and accepted constitution.

Our goal is to seek to implant in the youth of our community, the ideals of GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP, TEAMWORK, HONESTY, LOYALTY, COURAGE, SCHOLARSHIP, AND REVERENCE, so that they may be FINER, STRONGER and HAPPIER YOUTH who will grow to be better citizens of and for their communities. The Thunder Bay Minor Football Association strives to make the game "fun" for all boys and girls. Coaches must constantly keep in mind the ages of the participants. The program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing days of the boys and girls involved, such as: self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership and good sportsmanship. With such goals in mind, and by providing an opportunity to participate in an organized and supervised environment with emphasis on maximum safety and participation,

Thunder Bay Minor Football is committed to provide young men and women an enjoyable, unique and valuable experience. T.B.M.F.A. has supported the youth of Thunder Bay for many years. It is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization committed to the youth of Thunder Bay. Every member of T.B.M.F.A.'s Board of Directors and Coaching Staff is committed to three objectives: Safety, Participation over competition and Education over performance.

Our Coaches will not be judged on their win/loss record, but on their ability to make the game “fun” for our children. We must remember that this activity is for “THE KIDS”. It is our philosophy to provide a strong emphasis on the core fundamentals of football –teamwork, commitment, work ethic, respect, and sportsmanship. Your support to this philosophy is critical and will serve to enhance the growth, mentally and physical development of our children.

The Market is a sustainable engine of the Thunder Bay economy, with a real impact of close to $8 million on our community.

For our vendors, the Market represents an opportunity to earn a living doing something they’re great at and that they love.  For many of our customers it’s a place to buy groceries, crafts and gifts from the talented, hard-working people who created them.  For others it’s a meeting-place full of good people where they can get in touch with some of the simpler things in life.

At the Thunder Bay Country Market you’ll always know exactly what you’re buying.  Our producers know that happy, confident customers will tell their friends about the Market; they dedicate themselves to answering your questions.

The folks are back in town. This year’s lineup for the LIVE FROM THE ROCK FOLK FESTIVAL offers music for everyone - including the little folks.
The organizers invites you to be a part of the little community that comes together each year along the shores of beautiful Lake Superior. Many past visitors to the festival will tell you that the magic happens during the afternoon workshops. This is when a group of musicians are asked to play together around a theme - could be travelling tunes, could be songs about love, just about anything goes! This is what makes a folk festival different from other music festivals. This is a great way to experience the magic of FOLK music!

The workshops are held on four stages throughout the day - there is even a stage for family friendly activities and music. IN the evening, the side stages close down and each evening will feature 45 minute sets of music by each of the performers, entertaining on their own. There’s a different schedule of performers on Friday and Saturday night.

The festival organizers pride themselves on offering lots of activities for the little folks in the crowd including face painting by Mona and other hands on activities and crafts. Parks Canada will be offering activities as will Monkeynastix and there will be yoga on Saturday and Sunday for our little folks to try. Eric the Juggler is back with his Active Circus Zone. The little folks are also invited to join one of the musicians in a musical parade on Saturday afternoon.

Other activities for the older folders including early morning Yoga and Tai Chi and last night bonfires by the lake where musicians will perform and everyone is invited to join in and sing along.

All activities are included in the cost of admission.

Would you like to CAMP for the WEEKEND? Don’t worry – you can get your passes at the GATE! Onsite camping is the best way to experience the festival! For more information please visit: http://www.livefromtherockfolkfestival.com/
$20/person for the weekend but 12 and UNDER are FREE!

When all of the activities, music and fresh air make you hungry, the festival has you covered.
There are lots of different options. You can pick home made pulled pork and baked potatoes or a vegetarian salads in a wrap. there are sausages and burgers with a side of fries or poutine. You can try a local pickerel dinner. International flavours include sushi, Indian curries and Caribbean jerk chicken with rice and beans. There are vendors offering tea and crepes for desert or you can try a slice of homemade pie -and if we’re lucky the pie just might be wild blueberry. And for the coffee lovers a real barista experience along the lake.

Breakfast is also available every morning in the festival cafe and features pancakes, sausages and home made muffins!
