    Contact:    5087638600   lfuller@sailsinc.org
   

  THIS CLUB IS CURRENTLY FULL.  WAITING LIST ONLY AT THIS TIME!   

If you are a Minecraft fan, this is the club for you!  We will be playing Minecraft using worlds created by the Jr. Friends, doing Mine "Crafts", and enjoying a small snack.  Must be age 7 or above  This is a kids club run by kids, so we will all work together to make this a fun club for all!

All skill levels welcome.  We hope we will all learn together.  

Must bring a handheld device or laptop with Minecraft loaded - most likely Minecraft PE. The smartphone and tablet versions offer multi-player options through WiFi networks. 

What is it? Minecraft is a video game in which players create and break apart various kinds of blocks in three-dimensional worlds. The game’s two main modes are Survival and Creative. In Survival, players must find their own building supplies and food. They also interact with blocklike mobs, or moving creatures. (Creepers and zombies are some of the dangerous ones.) In Creative, players are given supplies and do not have to eat to survive. They also can break all kinds of blocks immediately.  The purpose of the game is simply to build and explore (and survive).

Synopsis: In Floyd and the Sparkling Seashell, Floyd, Tiny, and Larue spend a day at the beach where a certain Sparkling Seashell catches Floyd's eye. He wants that beautiful shell, but he'll have to go into the ocean to get it. That’s not going to be easy, because Floyd is afraid of the water. With Tiny and Larue's help, Floyd tries some clever ways to get that shell, but can these plans possibly work? Will the Sparkling Seashell ever be his? Can Floyd conquer his fear of the ocean and dive in?...The characters and illustrations in this story are based on the imaginary adventures of the author’s own dogs, three very spoiled Welsh Corgis.
