‘The only place where success comes before work is in a dictionary’.
Vidal Sassoon

And we are working hard to be a success. That was shown today as we played Camp Timberlane in our annual athletic competition with the boys from Woodruff. We practised this morning and played this afternoon. Traditionally it rains on competition day, but not this time. (That would come later). The younger boys stayed here at CM while the older boys went to Timberlane. We saw some terrific performances out at tennis, football, soccer, baseball, archery/riflery and ultimate frisbee that combined to put our first W on the board this summer. Way to go guys!!
This evening, after our MCAA awards bonfire, war broke out as the boys went back to their cabins to find that they were all locked. Confusion reigned as Jason tried to find out what was going on. All of sudden a cadre of British counselors appeared from the top of Wasserman Hall with a big bunch of keys – the keys to the kingdom – and proceeded to arrest Jason as they lowered the American flag from the flag pole. Chaos ensued as a giant Hummer (only in America) drove round the corner armed to the teeth with angry American patriots. They saved the day as the British were overpowered and B and A had started. This is the annual competition that takes place around the 4th July, the day when America celebrates a great victory, and the day when the British don’t.
So it will be B and A for the next couple of days, starting with the Captains’ Duels tomorrow morning.
Life is good and all is well, so safely rest.
Goodnight everybody.
As ever…WOODY!
