‘I’m sometimes thankful that, in our politically correct and very sensitive world we now live in, our colours are not black and white.’
Green and White got underway this morning when our a.m. meeting in Wasserman Hall was interrupted by two cars – one white, one green – driving onto the basketball court honking their horns with senior cabin members hanging out of the windows shouting green and white cheers. The meeting disintegrated as the campers poured out to see what all the fuss was about. This was the cue to take everyone into the gully where a slip n’ slide had been set up. Six by six the campers had to slide down the slide covered in soap and baby oil (it makes them go much faster) where they were met with a green or white shirt that told them what team they would be on. All this took the best part of the morning.
At 2.30 this afternoon we got into the first game of G n W 2016, Vroom. Now this is a complicated game, but one which the campers love, none-the-less. It involves the ‘stealing’ of flags hidden in the woods, the spraying of different colored dyes and lots of running around. It might be a little too complicated for me to explain to you here, but I can assure you that the boys really look forward to this all year.
We had to give them (the boys) some General time after that as the temperature climbed into the upper 80s and it was hot. Where better to go than the waterfront.
This evening it was time for Mannequin Madness, a game that involves dressing people up and creating a mood and a theme. The Green and White senior captains who present this game also have to provide a small commentary on each person as they are dressed, by way of an explanation as to what is going on. I will have results on all games played, thus far, tomorrow.
And Taps blew at 10.00 and all is well, so safely rest.
