 @MeisRoxyThePug and her snow cannon did a wonderful job of making Santa and his Elves feel right at home.  But the trouble is, all that snow lowered Miami`s temperature to the freezing point!  Let the #nipclub tailors get you fitted for a winter coat.  Be sure to let them know your color preference and if you would like a close-up or more full length style.  Showing only a few of the many parkas and coats available, are @Bea_bells and @TerenceTerrier.  Contact Gator to get yours!

Santa is down for the count.  What’s an elf to do?  Judging from the looks of elf models @Pumpkinpuddy, @mariodacat and @katiebella2, standing around and looking cute works just fine.  Contact Truman to get yours!

What if we can`t sober up Santa?  Models @TommyPug and the rest of the gang are ready to stand in for  Santa Hats and his Elves.  Contact OllyTed to get yours!

#NCM Xmas`14 @MeisRoxyThePug    #NCM Xmas`14 @TweetingTruman

This weekend, coffee may not be the preferred beverage, but it may be the most needed one.  Tired after a weekend of supervising elves, wrapping presents, loading the sleigh, and feeding reindeer?  Let coffee help keep you going till Santa is ready for take-off.  And if you plan on pawtying like only Anipals know  how to do, well, Santa might not be the only one who needs sobering up.  Your guess is as good as mine as to which reason @MeisRoxyThePug and @TweetingTruman have for sharing a pot of coffee with Santa.  Contact Gator to get yours!

DylanSUS

The coffee seems to be working, and model @Dylcat1 has got Santa up and out of the house.  Why not join him at Miami`s snow covered beach?  Contact Truman  to get yours!

One Light Bulb Too Many

So, to recap…

Ready to greet the #NipClub Team: Santa's Village

Ready to greet the #NipClub Team: Santa’s Village

Having apparently learned nothing from the past two years, when #NipClub has sent staff to the North Pole to get them out of the way help the elves wrap presents then had to listen to the tales of all kinds of mayhem filtering back afterwards, Santa again invited us to send him some assistants. Miss @lucky_GSD and @Doggymolly somehow managed to get themselves appointed to the crew, and dutifully presented themselves at the North Pole with strict instructions to behave themselves.

"NipClub, we got a pawblem..."

“NipClub, we got a pawblem…”

With hindsight it might have been a good idea to make sure that these two disaster areas on paws actually knew how to do the job that they were taking on, and, just as importantly, when they ought to stop. Santa’s Grotto did, admittedly, look lovely with all the extra colored lights that they put in, but in their enthusiasm to make it the most beautifully-decorated grotto Santa had ever seen they failed to take account of the condition of the wiring, believed to have been designed back in the days of Thomas Edison. No-one is admitting to who it was who plugged in one light bulb too many…

Light-source: Rudolph the nip-nosed reindeer

Light-source: Rudolph the nip-nosed reindeer

There was a bright flash, followed by a loud bang. The lights went out, the elves’ machinery stopped working, the heat went off and the sound system stopped blasting out “So This Is Christmas” to the cold night air. The only sound was Santa’s comments, which didn’t sound a lot like Ho Ho Ho. It turned out to be just as well that Rudolph had been sampling the nip supplies that Moo and Lucky had brought with them, as apart from the Aurora Borealis high above the village his glowing nose was the only light-source that they had available.

Off the map: the power outage was extensive

Off the map: the power outage was extensive

Moo took out the NipClub satellite phone and after making calls to all the power companies that she could reach she found herself with no other option but to call the club and announce that Santa’s present run was canceled because the power couldn’t be restored till after Christmas. An emergency meeting of NipClub Management degenerated into a certain amount of less than helpful name-calling before it was agreed that the only thing to do was to bring Santa, the elves, Rudolph and the reindeer, and anyone else needed to make sure the presents would get out on time, to NipClub until after Christmas.

It seemed like such a good idea at the time…

You’re not sure that sounds like fun – well, come on down to the NipClub snow park where you’ll meet up with a bunch of our anipal friends. The Entertainment Leader will gather everyone together and assign each team an outhouse, you and your team’s job will be to pound skiis on to the bottom of the outhouse, put someone in the outhouse to help steer the little box while the rest of the team pushes it around the race track. You and your team will race your outhouse against all of the other team’s outhouses and the first one who crosses the finish line, wins! So join up with the Entertainment Leader during the date(s)/time(s) listed. All teams who have won one of the outhouse races will gather up all at once and have one big grand race – where they’ll push and push and push and push around the track until a winner is declared for the first team that crosses the finish line!

#NCM Xmas`14 Santa's Man-Cave

Yup, you guest it…Santa has been a bit naughty, and according to Mrs. Clause he has to sleep somewhere else until he’s learned his lesson. Well, never fear – Santa has lots of little helpers, including you and me and all of us anipals to help him build a sweet Man-Cave! Join the Entertainment Leader in Santa’s cellar during the day/time listed below. We will gather, grab some tools and read the design plans and help build Santa a great little place. At least one of us will be able to read architectural drawings won’t we? Well, no matter – we’ll build what we build, because Santa… well, he has no other option available to him, unless he wants to sleep with the reindeer. Follow the Entertainment Leaders direction – because they’ll know what they are talking about… or not! It will be fun, we’ll break in to teams of carpenters, welders, electricians, and other assorted helpers and build out (conceivably) a great Santa Man-Cave! The anipal who demonstrates the most skill with saws, drills, and hammers wins the Santa’s Man-Cave Award!

#NCM HighlandGames Loch Ness Cruise Banner

Here we go again, lots of anipals get in a boat and cruise murky waters where lore has it that a super big, and rather scary, critter calls home. Does that sound smart? Nope, not at all – and that’s why we’re doing it! Meet down by the locks where we’ll all climb aboard the SS NipClub yacht to cruise the beautiful Loch Ness. We’ll explore the whole 37 kilometer expanse of Loch Ness, starting at the south end and make our way north – going through all of the interconnected rivers that comprise the beautiful water way. The Loch Ness is known for it’s wonderful fresh water that houses fertile peat and various fish and other assorted marine life. Our Entertainment Leader(s) will point out the highlights along our cruise, and if we’re lucky we may even see Nessie, the monster that lives in the Loch Ness. What? Did I say that? Yes, I did, seems like we’ve got a date with the Loch Ness monster! So grab your life jacket, pin your kilt closed (don’t want to give a free show you know), and join the Entertainment Leader(s) during the time(s) listed below and you will be guaranteed a great time!

Date: Sat Oct 11     Time: 8:00 – 9:00 pm EDT     Host: @WinstonTabby               .                                                                                                                   @meisroxythepug

 

#NCM HighlandGames Name the Scotsman Banner

This is a trivia contest with all things Scottish! There’s a monster that lives in a river in Scotland, what’s it called? What’s the largest city in Scotland? Name the original singer of AC/DC? What? Yup, he was Scottish! Okay anipals now that you have the gist of things, come on down to the grassy knoll and gather around in a nice big circle while our Entertainment Leader(s) thrill you with a game of Name the Scottish man, Woman, or Critter! Heck, if you know some Scottish trivia, don’t hold back – you will be encouraged to participate too! Know the answer, then tweet right in – and if you have a question just tweet it out, it’s going to be a free for all knowledge fest of all things Scottish. Join the Entertainment Leader(s) during the time(s) listed below and bring a blanket because with the windy weather, the kilt your wearing may just not be enough to keep you warm. Oh, and there will be a prize for the anipal with the most correct answers!

Date: Sat Oct 11     Time: 7:00 – 8:00 pm EDT     Hosts: @skye613                            .                                                                                                                    @mariodacat

 

#NCM HighlandGames Kilt Races Banner

Kilts will be a fluttering about during this fun event! We are going to have a little fun with you while you wear your kilt with Scottish pride. Every anipal will be given a lovely kilt to wear and then the games begin: there will be hopscotch, pole vaulting, long jumping, and a race around the NipClub track! We’ll even have little rubber squeaky toys for the dogs to chase about in their kilts, as well as lasers that beam lights for the cats to pounce on. The goal of this event is to have as much fun scampering and skittering about while keeping your kilt in place and decent like (you know what I mean). Anipals will join the Entertainment Leader(s) during the time(s) listed below, and lead through a series of fun events (and a few made up ones that we didn’t list) to see which anipal will be named King or Queen of the Kilt Critter Race (crown included). So come on over to the Kilt Critter Race track during the time(s) listed and join in the fun!

#NCM HighlandGames Bagpipe Boogie Banner

Join us for the official closing of the October, Highlander Games themed NipClub pawty. For NipClub Highlander Games attendees, the most memorable event is the massing of the pipe bands. We expect up to 20 or more pipers will join in the fun and march and play together. Anipals everywhere will join in the thunderous rendition of traditional favorites like Scotland the Brave or Amazing Grace, and other crowd-pleasing favorites like AC/DC (what? just making sure your paying attention!). Kilted fuzzies (and feathered, and scaled, etc.) will gather on Bag Pipe Lane, puff puff puff on their little bag pipes to make them bellow and skirl, and jam away while anipals gather in the street and clap their paws and stomp their feet (welly, really paws) to the glorious emanating sounds! Some critters will even be so moved by the sounds that they’ll sing along… don’t believe me? Well check it out here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJBgSsVyQns)! Look for the Entertainment Leader(s) listed below, and join in the Bagpipe Boogie fun – and if your the best bagpiper and or dancer, you could win yourself a nice prize!

Date: Sun Oct 12     Time: 10:00 – 11:00 AM EDT     Host: TBA

 

#NCM HighlandGames Higland Dance Banner

Well put on your ghillies and come on out and dance! Don’t know what ghillies are, or even if you have a pair, don’t worry about it – we didn’t know either, so had to look it up. Ghillies are the type of shoes worn at highland dance competitions, they are soft and flexible like ballet slippers. So grab some ghillies and put them on your paws (fins if your a fish, and just toss one on your head if your a snake) and come on out and dance! The super pawesome NipClub DJs will be stirring up the tunes, and you are invited to strut your stuff solo style, or as a twosome (threesomes and foursomes are okay as well, heck, if you want the whole lot of you can break out in a River Dance scene) – and dance up a storm. The Highland Dance games will be in the traditional style, on the balls of your paws (or whatever you have) with some integral upper body, arm, and paw movements (if your a bird, you are free to use your wings and bob your head – you look pretty cool when you do that). The best Highland Dancer will win a prize, so make sure to join the Entertainment Leader listed in the time(s) below and come on out and have a good time.

Date: Sat Oct 11     Time: 6:00 – 7:00 pm EDT     Host: TBA

 

#NCM HighlandGames Heavy Toss Banner

Hope you’ve been working out anipals, because the October NipClub pawty will test your strength and might! The Heavy Weight Tossing games are vast, so lift your kilt and scamper on over to the game area. We’ll start out with Caber Toss, where anipals will grab a long, tapered pine log & toss it end-over-end to see who gets it the farthest. Next is Stone Put, a lot like a shot put, but with a stone (doh!). Followed by Hammer Throw…sounds safe, don’t you think? Just like it sounds, you grab the hammer with your paws, or beak, whirl it about your head and see who tosses it the farthest. Yes, all of these mighty fine, thrill seeking yet virtually safe games have been planned for your October Nipclub enjoyment. Medic on hand for thunks on the head (hee hee!). Join the Entertainment Leader during the time(s) listed below, and you’ll be set for some guaranteed fun! Prize for the most creative heavy weight tosser!

#NCM Australia 2014 Games.BarrierReef

It’s magical, it’s wondrous, it’s the Great Barrier Reef tour! We guarantee that you have never seen anything like it. Join up with one of the Entertainment Team member(s) during the time(s) listed below and you will be in for a treat. The tour wills tart out with scuba diving and snorkeling lessons – wet suits are option, but swimming suits are not (okay, they may be option). Jump in to your skivvies and join us by the water. Our Entertainment Team member will get you comfortable in your equipment and teach you how to dive, use your fins, and make sure your buoyancy is just right for you to float about and take in all the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Tours start, well, whenever every anipal is comfy and then we splash off – bobbing and diving throughout the waters – but just looky-no touchy, the Reef is special and we don’t want to harm it. For a sneak peak of what awaits you click here: Great Barrier Reef. See you at the beach!

#NCM Australia 2014 Games.Boomerang

Boomerang, crikey mate you toss one of those things and they just come back at ya! Well, that’s the goal! Join one of the Entertainment Team members during the time(s) listed below and enter the Bubberah Toss game. Every anipal will be led through calisthenics where we’ll all reap the benefits of flexing our arms (or wings… this will be rather tough if you are a snake, so serpent-types may just want to wriggle about) until we’re all warmed up. Then the Entertainment Leader will guide you through some Bubberah Toss practice tosses – be careful though, we just installed new lights in the outfield, so try not to break anything (I’m sensing danger here). After a brief warm up we’ll take turns tossing our Bubberahs down the long field where we’ll see who can get it out the farthest and have it return closest to them – all boomerang-stying, like! The anipal with the closest return wins a prize – one point for every returned Bubberah, minus 5 points for every broken outfield light, or smacking upside another opponents noggin! Hee hee hee! Okay, well, don’t do that!

First things first however – we’ll all gather down by the wondrous Sydney Opera House to watch our wondrous Entertainment Leader perform didgeridoo NipClub-style! Join us during the time(s) listed below and watch our Entertainment Mastro(s) create magic as they ‘puff puff puff’ on their didgeridoo, making glorious sounds while they move around on stage and regale you all with magically moments. Then get ready, it’s your turn!
