This is going to be a totally awesome, really amazing, super fantastic, really big day!
It begins with Challenge Day… fun competition between the Odds and the Evens… decorated dining hall… everyone wearing team colors… FUN.
We then transition to Carnival… the second most popular EP of the summer (the most popular is Banquet). The preparations for Carnival become evident as big trucks deliver gigantic inflatable slides and the maintenance crew sets up a bunch of impressive food booths. By the time Flag blows, the girls are ready for fun… we eat at the Carnival, we play, and we dance. As the sun sets we return to our cabins with big smiles and bulging tummies. It is a great ending to a great day.
Some high points of the Carnival food provision this year:
OK, the mixed green salad was a joke. As I considered the menu, it was obvious that we could perhaps add a station. Maybe next time!
The other food of the day:
The weather of the day is cool (highs in the upper 60’s), which will give the carnival a really nice vibe (reminding me of our State fair that is scheduled for late September). We will not set up the water rides due to the cool temperatures. Instead we are substituting some other “challenge” type events that keep us active, warm, and dry!
Breakfast Club: Ike Pike and Mustard: “Pass the Bacon, Pig”. A huge favorite, if I say so myself.
