“Goals achieved with little effort are seldom worthwhile or lasting”.

Hello everybody

So the White team continue to lead the Green and White colour war. Although the method of scoring and the way the teams accumulate points means that either team can still win this, it is looking ever more likely that the White’s will prevail. I hope I’m not tempting fate by saying that.

Yesterday we had a break from competition as we went to town (Minocqua) for Town Day. We managed to do the whole day this time – unlike first session when a thunderstorm ended things prematurely – so this included a visit to the ‘world’ famous Minocqua Bats ski show in the evening. The rain couldn’t stay away completely, although it didn’t make much difference to the enjoyment everyone had.

We got back into the colour war this morning with Bari’s Biffs, a really fun game in which unsuspecting campers are chased by eight Biffers who carry a sock filled with flour. If the campers get biffed by said sock, no damage is done, but a white flour mark is left on the ‘victim’. At this point they must shout out for a medic who will be riding around on a bike. Only the medic can release the biffed camper back into play, and they do this by way of a challenge or question that will have to be answered correctly. After all the points (and penalty points) were added up, the Green team won Bari’s Biffs, and thus closed the gap on the White’s.

Tonight we go into the Sing with the Green’s really needing to win. I’m going to delay publishing this so that I can come back to it with the full Sing result and details. The Green’s did it! I thought it was pretty close, but by a score of 4-1, the Green’s won the Sing. Everything will now hinge on the Relay tomorrow.

As I write this, both teams are now getting ready to play Midnight Manhunt, the much delayed Midnight Manhunt, I might add. This is another game that involves squirting coloured water at each other, but with the added difference that this is all done in the dark. This result I am not going to wait for (sorry, it’s too late), but I’ll bring you up to speed tomorrow morning.

In the meantime, please know that all is well, so safely rest.

Goodnight everybody.

As ever…WOODY!
