We had 35 people participate in all or part of the campout weekend. The weather had its good and bad times but mostly comfortable for outside activities.
Friday morning 23 went to play mini golf, having lots of cheers, jeers, and laughter. Rick got the low score of 49. He did have some help to get it and his hole in one was questionable. He did receive something very special for his “one-holer.” Holly outscored everyone with 72 “duds.” Isabel, Judy, Jim, Bill, and Rick each got a hole in one to receive a special award. King size assist award went to Greg for him helping with Rick’s shot. Bill got a “do goodie award” for proving the score. Several of our competitors received “whopper” awards for scoring a 7 on one hole–William, Tracey, Greg, Bill, Holly, Berta, Mike, and Susie.
Potluck was shared Friday evening.
Junior judging and Chinese auction items were taken care of on Saturday morning. Some of the auction winners needing a box for all their treasures.
Ten ambitious folks pitched horseshoes, the rest of the group doing a lot of encouraging and heckling. Helen and Greg took the first place honors. Jim and Tina second and Mike and Dennis finished third. Each received a mini horseshoe pit for awards. (Mini chocolate cakes)
Bocce ball rounded out the afternoon with 18 rolling/throwing balls and even using a tape measure for top spots to be decided. Katelyn and Rick won the challenge but again Rick had additional help with Terry as his first partner. Berta and Greg came in 2nd and Norma & Jim taking third. (Awards were Lindt chocolates of the appropriate color.)
An ice cream social with all the fixings topped off the activities with “awards” being given out. We joked that some actually “earned” them and some not so much.
It was another successful and fun time. We have set a date for next year at the same place July 20, 21, and 22, the third weekend. Join us! Maybe you’ll get an “award.”
