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.


Now that summer is over it's time for some more hot fun in cooler weather at Sawmill.  Our Hibernation Run weekend is November 14, 15 and 16.  I hope you have made your reservations to join us for our last event of 2014!

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 us know when you will help.  As always, the fastest responders get the time slots they want!   There will be an auction for our Hibernation Run event, so if you have items bring them along to donate. The weather will be more conducive to an outside auction.

Once again, please consider volunteering a little or a lot for our Hibernation Run 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.
