Welcome to the BACKWOODS BEARS Club!

Welcome to BBC - Backwoods Bears Club Inc.


The Backwoods Bears is a non-profit organization with charitable intent. The BBC provides social and other events to raise funds for charity.  These events are directed especially at bears, bear friends, and bear admirers. Our members come from all around the state and the world. The home of the BBC is the famous Sawmill Camping Resort in
Dade City, Florida.


I hope you are having a HOT summer of fun!  It's time for some more fun at Sawmill.  Our Anniversary weekend is August 8, 9 and 10.  I hope you have already made your reservations to be a part of our anniversary celebration!  12 years of fun to raise money for various charities!  Whether you have been a part of all 12 years or this is your first Backwoods Bears Event, you don't want to miss Anniversary XII!  Your board wants you there!  As always the success of our events depends on the help of our volunteers.   I hope you are planning to volunteer for this event.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!!  If you can give at least 1 hour of your time to help either set up the event, work the check in stations or bartend, WE NEED YOU!!  So please review the sign in sheet and respond by letting me know when you will help.  As always, the fastest responders get the time slots they want!   There is not an auction for August due to the heat, so if you have items, I hope you can hang onto them until our November event when the weather will be more conducive to an outside auction.  Also, our pet food and supply drive will happen in November.  Many good things to come, I hope you will be a part of them all.

Once again, please consider volunteering a little or a lot for our Anniversary Weekend.  YOU ARE THE BACKWOODS BEARS CLUB and your help is always appreciated!!

Bingo News
We want to provide you with an update/change that is occurring with Bingo at Sawmill.  Our board has met with the Sawmill HOA board, Sawmill manager and Sawmill event promotions coordinator and have come up with some changes. Based on much discussion, various suggestions and ideas from both boards, as well as Sawmill members, and the need for more volunteers to make Bingo successful it has been decided to try something new with Bingo.  Bingo is going to be offered every other Friday night and we are also going to attempt having Bingo on a Saturday afternoon.  The first Saturday Bingo will be held on our Anniversary weekend.  Cards will be sold at 4:30 and Bingo will begin at 5:00 PM.   The Friday schedule will begin the following Friday.  Please stay tuned to our Facebook page and the Sawmill website for the Saturday dates and the progress of this change.  If you have an opinion concerning this, please feel free to share that with us or the Sawmill HOA board and management.
