Blast from the past for Wild Ones

Whitsunday Times - - 7 DAY TV GUIDE -

THE Wild Ones have wound back the clock, cre­at­ing hip­pie mas­ter­pieces dur­ing one of their ses­sions.

Late last month the group made Tie Dye shirts, with as­sis­tance from An­nika Gar­diner of Tizahz Tie Dye in Mackay.

Groovy shirts, dresses, sin­glets and pil­low cases were made and thor­oughly en­joyed, ac­cord­ing to Wild Ones’ co-or­di­na­tor Ron Pet­ter­son.

“They loved it. They’ve been post­ing their pho­tos on Face­book and they have been wear­ing them out and about too,” he said. “We all got our hip­pie on.”

Last week the Wild Ones were at it again, pack­ing their bow and ar­rows for an­other night of fun.

The archery night was held at the Whit­sun­day PCYC last Thurs­day, and Mr Pet­ter­son be­lieves the ac­tiv­ity has sparked in­ter­est in the sport.

“They all got to have a chance shoot­ing off a cou­ple of ar­rows each and they all en­joyed that too... it was a re­ally good night,” he said.

“A cou­ple of par­ents in­quired about archery as well. So it’s good to be able to let them have a shot at some­thing new. That’s why ev­ery week is dif­fer­ent so we can let the kids try dif­fer­ent things.” The Wild Ones’ adventure pro­gram takes place ev­ery Thurs­day at the Whit- sun­day PCYC. Tonight the kids will par­take in a team build­ing games night. For in­for­ma­tion con­tact Ron Pet­ter­son on 0408 544 558.
