The BCS Blast is coming on Sunday, April 25, 2021!This year the BCS Blast event has been recreated into a Road Rally! Do you know what a Road Rally is and how it will work? Think scavenger hunt!It will be a socially distanced competition game with clues and an app, so a device will be needed to enter the Road Rally. It’s a fun activity for the family or a small group of friends. You will be given instructions to download and log into the Goosechase app, get clues for landmarks to visit or activities to do around the city, upload pics into the app, and earn points. Top points will win (gift card) prizes!You can drive through our district or walk through downtown Birmingham answering clues in the app. Clue answers might be pictures in front of a store or similar.
Our game app will also have many BCS Trivia questions loaded into it for a chance to gather even more points! In addition, 20 checkered flags will be placed at various clue locations for students to bring back to the school to exchange for a small prize. As you play the game each participant will see where they stand with other competitors.
Non-BCS students/siblings are welcome to enter. Parents do not need to purchase a ticket. Continuing the tradition of past Blast events, the PTA extends complimentary entry to all new incoming 2021/2022 BCS students.

PTSA Blast Committee Meetings 2020-2021
The BCS Blast committee coordinates the various components of our annual School Fair, the Blast. Held in the Spring, the Blast is BCS's largest fundraiser and party of the year. Our 2021 Blast looks different from previous years and will include a Road Rally Scavenger Hunt, an online auction, food trucks and prizes. Proceeds from the Blast fund the majority of the PTSA's annual budget.
Please support the Blast in any way you can – with the current funding situation for public schools, PTSA support for our students is more important than ever! If you are interested in donating anything to the auction or know any business that would like to be involved please contact the committee chair or attend one of the meetings:
Check the WAG for meeting dates and times.
This great BCS tradition takes a lot of people and hours to pull it off, but if we each do just a bit, it will be a great success! Look for information from your child’s room parent on opportunities to volunteer as we get nearer to the big date, or contact Donna Kramer, Kathleen Meyers or Torri Calver to get more involved.
