For too long Rangers fans have been left in the dark waiting for Press releases and facebook updates.
We are now waiting for a vote by other SPL clubs to see if they will allow RFC to play in the SPL.
Mink Lake Rangers work in Quetico Provincial Park to provide rehabilitation and maintenance of interior wilderness canoe routes, campsites, shorelines, rock faces, lake clean-up and provide GPS mapping and digital photos of remote campsite locations. This type of work requires multi-day, and sometimes fly-in, canoe trips. Rangers also work with park visitor services on Natural Heritage Education projects.
Outside of the park, Mink Lake Rangers work on a number of projects with the ministry and local community partners such as, painting out-buildings or adopt-a-highway clean-up.
The Ministry of Natural Resources Ontario Ranger Program has come to the decision that there needs to be a more equal number of male camps to female camps. A few weeks back the camp coordinators got together for a meeting regarding the decision of what camp should be changed to a male camp. Robin Reilly, the coordinator of Mink Lake neglected to show up; therefore all the coordinators present decided that because there was no representative, Mink Lake would be targeted for the change. After the meeting, Ashley Boland the head of Ontario Rangers presented the idea to Mr. Reilly who agreed with the decision.
Mink Lake was the first female Ranger camp in Ontario and has inspired so many young women for many decades teaching them skills such as independence, responsibility and most importantly team work which are all important in the working field. Rangers and staff alike who have attended/worked at Mink Lake in the past are coming together to campaign for the decision of Mink Lake, turning into a male camp, to be reconsidered.
If you believe Rangers fans and our club are under a sustained and politically motivated attack, from biased MP's and equally divisive media establishments, then please take a moment to sign our petition.
Rangers fans took the unusual step of protesting outside the BBC in Glasgow recently, due to this corporation being duped into a false and utterly appalling tale about the "Famine song".
Compare and contrast the media coverage one week later when other supporters are caught red handed singing songs in support of banned terrorist organisations.
Rangers fans do not ask for favouritism or preferential treatment, but we do demand that we are given parity of esteem. We also demand that Michael Matheson SNP MSP, is disciplined by the Scottish government, for his biased and ludicrous statements on the Hokey Cokey song. Once again, bigots with an agenda attack Rangers fans, for no reason, other than their own prejudices.
As you will have seen in the press. This season, Rangers and Celtic sent proposals to all other SPL clubs asking them to pay a 5% surcharge to distribute tickets to their own supporters for away matches.
i.e If Celtic played Hearts at Tynecastle last season. Hearts sent tickets to Celtic and Celtic sold them. The money for these tickets then went back to Hearts.
This season Celtic would only send 95% of that money back.
All of the SPL clubs disagreed with these plans.
This morning (1st August 2008) Dundee United have stated that they have had to accept this 5% charge as Celtic have told them "If you don't pay, we don't take ANY tickets!" which stands to cost United £100,000.
In other words. The two biggest clubs in Scotland are now standing together to BULLY the smaller teams out of money that most of them can ill afford.
It's time for the 10 other clubs to test the resolve of Rangers and Celtic. If they threaten to send no fans. Fine! Sell those tickets to your own fans. Create an atmosphere that is as biased as the ones you face at Ibrox and Parkhead. Or close those areas of the ground that they normally take up saving money in policing and stewarding costs.
Firstly we have been experiencing many problems with the quality and the lack of consistency in sizing of uniform particularly considering the price of the uniform this is the source of comments and complaints from parents and is something we are largely powerless to remedy.
Under current trading standard rules an item must be fit for purpose, something we are keenly aware of and I do not feel it is unreasonable to expect a uniform to last a girl her whole time in any given section.
Anecdotal evidence from parents suggests they are more amenable to the current prices if the uniform was of better quality, this would also mean second hand uniform would still be wearable which is in keeping with the current messages to reuse things where possible and would be a viable option to members who find the financial impact of starting Guiding particularly difficult.
It is important to us as members of Girlguiding UK that it is clear that all sections of Guiding are part of the same movement. There are a numbers of ways we feel it would be beneficial to combat this problem. Introducing uniform navy trousers, sashes and neckerchiefs for all sections would help, by having the same trousers throughout all sections it would also help spread the expense of uniform. With particular reference to sashes we would like them to be thinner material to enable younger members to sew on their own badges, fastening using poppers or velcro and with something to help younger members keep their sashes from falling off their shoulders.
Another way to unite the different sections would be to have the same designs available for each section but using the sections personalised colour and accent colour.
A smaller selection of options would also allow girls to look more uniform. Currently all Guidance says girls must be allowed to choose from the full range of section wear, for guides this if 4 tops and three 2nd layers. This could easily be limited to a jumper, one long, one short sleeved top and a smart blouse for Guides and Senior Section. This would make us more recognisable to the public, how can we have a good public image if we can't be recognised?
In 2003 around 100,000 Celtic fans travelled to Seville, in Spain to watch their team play in the UEFA Cup final. Even though their team lost, the Celtic fans were so well behaved, UEFA presented them with an award in recognition of this – the first time it had ever so.
Fast forward to the 2008 UEFA Cup final in Manchester, and the disgusting scenes that were broadcasted across the world of so called football fans rioting, attacking Police and assaulting rival fans in the stadium and in the centre of one of the busiest and culturally diverse cities in Europe.
Ranger’s fans have not only brought shame and disgust on their club, but on the whole league, and by association, every other SPL club. After the last 2 ‘Old Firm’ matches, Celtic Fans have been targeted in attacks by Rangers Fans, which have resulted in 1 death and one Celtic fan being hospitalised indefinitely.
Celtic fans are tired of being connected to Ranger’s, simply because they are located in the same city – just as you wouldn’t accuse Fred West’s neighbour of being a mass murderer simply because they lived next door to him, Celtic, Hib’s, Hearts and other SPL fans don’t wish to be tarnished with the same brush as Rangers Fans.
For years Glasgow Celtic and its supporters have been found guilty by association due to Rangers Football Club and their fans' behaviour.
Up until now most of this has been swept under the carpet by the Scottish media to defect the damaging image of Scottish football, however recent trouble has emerged from Manchester, and only now is the whole world sitting up and seeing what these animals are actually all about.
This club until recent years would not sign a catholic player, are linked heavily with sectarianism, racism and are even happily chanting songs tarnishing a dead legends name.
In 2003 over 200,000 Celtic fans crossed Europe by car, boat, bus and plane to head for Seville for the UEFA cup final against Porto, we lost that game, but over the whole period of time the Celtic fans were there, there was NOT ONE incident of trouble and only 1 arrest made.
Indeed Celtic fans won an accolade of admiration from the whole world and of course a special award from UEFA due to their good behaviour. However when you look at Rangers recent final, 42 arrests, rioting with police, looting shops and opposition fans being stabbed not to mention the rest.
It is on this note I demand action be taking by immediate effect to ensure the name "OLD FIRM" is replace by the typical CELTIC V RANGERS or vice versa. I will also be using this petition as a sign of encouraging UEFA to ban Rangers football Club from all European tournaments with immediate effect.
This club will forever destroy the image of Glaswegians, the city of Glasgow and of course Scotland as a whole.
As football fans i would encourage all people to spread the word and try for once to get free of the tag OLD FIRM, by my opinion and thousands more. WE ARE GUILTY BY ASSOCIATION.
This petition will be posted to UEFA, the SFA and PETER LAWELL.
Yours in Celtic
Keep Sir MoonBeam in, without him, we won't have the comedy and laughter at him and his so called "football team".
We need you, Keep MoonBeam in!!!
The goal of this petition is to (plan A) convince the Walt Disney Company to remove the Jetix programming block from the Toon Disney channel's line-up, or (plan B) to convince them to launch an all new channel specifically for Toon Disney's older programming, classic Disney animated movies, and Mickey, Pluto, Donald, and Goofy shorts, ECT.
This channel would be similar to the successful "Boomerang" channel, which Cartoon Network launched in 2000.
In February 2004, Disney added a new action programming block called "Jetix"(which was already featured mornings on the ABC Family channel), which aside from "Gargoyles", featured absolutely no Disney cartoons. Instead, it airs these shows "A.T.O.M.", "Power Rangers" (which is not even animated), "The Tick", "Digimon", "Kong: the animated series", "Dragon Booster", "Daigunder", "Dungeons and Dragons", "Get Ed", "NASCAR Racers", "Oban Star Racers", "Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go!", "Silverwing", "Yin Yang Yo", "Jackie Chan Adventures", and more.
At first it wasn't so bad, as the Jetix block was only a few hours long each day, but as time passed it kept expanding, first to five hours on weekdays and a bit longer on weekends. Now Jetix is practically eating Toon Disney alive, airing from 7:00pm - 8:00am (13 hrs) on weekdays and 4:00pm - 8:00am (16 hrs) on weekends. EDIT: They just recently removed Jetix from ABC Family and now Jetix has extended even further and now has a lengthly morning block as well :-(
Now I am not trying to say that the Jetix shows are bad, actually some of them are quite good, but the fact remains, they do not belong on the Toon Disney network.
It would be a good idea to launch a separate channel for Jetix oriented programming in the U.S. The United Kingdom has a channel specifically for Jetix programming, so why not do this for the U.S. as well?
If this cannot be done, we would like you to consider launching an all new channel specifically for Toon Disney's older programming, similar to the successful "Boomerang" channel which Cartoon Network launched in 2000. This new channel could also feature classic Mickey, Pluto, Donald, and Goofy shorts and Disney animated features such as "Dumbo", "Robin Hood", and "Alice in Wonderland" as well.
By doing this you can keep both the Jetix block and the newer Disney cartoons you have put on the network, such as "Kim Possible", "Brandy & Mr. Whiskers", "Dave the Barbarian", "The Proud Family", "Lilo and Stitch: the series", and "American Dragon: Jake Long", while still keeping fans of Toon Disney's older programming satisfied.
In November 2004, a very large amount of programming that the network was originally intended for was removed from the line-up and has not been seen since then. Some of these displaced shows included "Darkwing Duck", "Goof Troop", "DuckTales", "101 Dalmations: the series", "Pepper Ann", "Bonkers", "Teacher's Pet", "Quack Pack", "Mighty Ducks: the animated series", "Chip 'N' Dale Rescue Rangers", "The Weekenders", "Fillmore", "Lloyd in Space",, "TaleSpin" and "New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh".
We want these shows to be brought back to the channel along with "Jungle Cubs" and "Gummi Bears", which have not been seen on U.S. airwaves since 2001.

Most Rangers and Celtic fans are not from Glasgow. By not allowing people into Glasgow this would reduce the bigots funding their cause through football.
