Le Vortex de Bagotville - - MOT DU COMMANDANT -

As part of the 2018 Hi­ver­nades, the Ba­got­ville MFRC team held its tra­di­tio­nal beard gro­wing com­pe­ti­tion, which for the past two years has evol­ved to be known as the beard and po­ny­tail con­test. In all, 246 sol­diers ( 219 beards and 27 po­ny­tails) en­te­red the con­test in or­der to win one of ten prizes to­ta­ling near­ly $ 2,000. The con­test, which is al­so a fun­drai­sing cam­pai­gn, rai­sed $ 6,100 to fund or­ga­ni­zed MFRC events. Car­ni­val Fa­mi­ly Break­fast The MFRC al­so held its year­ly Car­ni­val Fa­mi­ly Break­fast on Fe­brua­ry 17th at the Base Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­ter gym. About 200 people, in­clu­ding near­ly 75 chil­dren of all ages par­ti­ci­pa­ted in this event. Maple taf­fy on the snow, in­fla­table games, giant foos­ball, clowns, ma­keup ar­tists, DIY and ma­ny other out­door ac­ti­vi­ties were of­fe­red to all. A new fa­mi­ly con­test in­clu­ding two small com­pe­ti­tions were al­so a great suc­cess. The MFRC team thanks all the vo­lun­teers, spon­sors and other part­ners who par­ti­ci­pa­ted in these two ac­ti­vi­ties and who sup­port the Ba­got­ville mi­li­ta­ry com­mu­ni­ty.
