A little rain doesn’t stop Olympics!!!
Despite the gray skies, mist, rain and damp chill; NOTHING stopped ALL the CAMPERS and STAFF from wanting to get out on the fields to play!
In between heavy downpours, we got in most of the scheduled competition between The RED ZOMBIES and BLUE CLONES.
From my vantage point as the Grand Master of Ghost, I witnessed the best match ever of Debs & Dills, playting with their heart and soul in the mud and drizzle…to a tie-breaker; the same was true for the Tweens and the Middie Boys. An intense coed LIT best of 5 went the distance through rain and mud as well.
The thrills, the cheering and the concentration was wonderful! From the coaches to generals to the amazing judgies (consisting of over 65 visiting alumni)!
The reports are that all activities were the same intensity and spirit; From volleyball, soccer and indoor basketball to Gaga and softball!
It is so evident that all that our camp is about comes to fruition in these latter days of the summer; the camaraderie, the respect, the reaching for one’s personal best, the becoming comfortable outside of one’s comfort zone and the genuine pride, sportsmanship and deep friendships are making this OLYMPICS indicative of why we are all here.
It is a proud feeling that I see and sense on everyone; including the alums that have just showed up; they see it, too!
At the end of Day ONE, there is just a 2 ½ point difference between the teams…how about that?
Songs of the day played here: TIME OF THE SEASON by the Zombies and and WE ARE ALL CLONES by Alice Cooper.
Today will be beautiful! Cool in the low 70s… a great day for the track and swim meets and tug of war!! PULL, THAT, ROPE!!!!
Good luck Red Team. Good luck Blue Team.
