Bring on the Competition

Posted: July 28 2015

‘If you can’t tie good knots, tie plenty of them’. The truth that every yachtsman knows.

Most of the day has been spent in team practices, and I think we are just about ready. The competition starts tomorrow afternoon and the boys are very excited to get things going.
The counselors played hard in their game last night in St Germain, but came up short in softball. The boys now have an opportunity to put some wins on the board. With 65 points up for grabs, over two days, in a whole host of sports, we are confident that the Green Machine will be firing on all cylinders. The weather promises to be good; (the thunderstorm has even been delayed until the early hours of tomorrow morning) so the fields will be soft and the air clean and fresh.
We finished the day with a pep rally in Wasserman Hall, where stories were told of past victories and cheers were led by the Senior cabin.
I know that there are many thousands of alumni around the world who will be tuned into the events of the next two days. What with texts and Twitter and smart phones, you will be well-served with the latest news as the games are played and the scores come in. I will also bring you my take on things in the Word tomorrow and Thursday.
The boys are in bed for some ‘Beat Kawaga rest and recuperation’, and that is where I must go too.
You know that all is well, so we can all safely rest.
Goodnight everybody.
As ever…WOODY!
