Field Day 2013!!

I spent my Saturday attending all of the field day events except sunrise kickball which was at 5am. I unfortunately didn’t attend since I couldn’t get myself up at that time, or stay up till that time. But I heard it was awesome and that Ryan Stasik (from Umphrey’s) showed up to participate, which he has done every year since field day started in 2011.

I was apart of the Yellow Team just like last year, YEAH YELLOW TEAM! The first event was tug-of-war, Yellow won the first round of tug of war, but then lost to the blue team. Here’s a pic of Blue beating Purple in the first round.

The next event was arm wrestling and the women competed first, the Red Team female arm wrestler ended up beating everyone. Here’s a pic of Red Team beating Yellow Team…

Then it was time for the men’s arm wrestling. My man Adam represented the Yellow team and kept his title as reigning winner of male arm wrestling for the Yellow Team! Here’s a pic from male arm wrestling…

Next up was the spelling bee, how it worked was each team was given 30 seconds to figure out the correct spelling of a word that was given to them and a team captain that was elected would tell the officials the spelling of the word. Towards the end of the spelling be, Red and Yellow Team were neck and neck, but in the end, Red Team won. With a great speller like Shepy leading the Red Team, its no surprise they won. Here’s a pic of the Yellow Team after the spelling bee with Tony who was our spelling Captain…

Then it was time for dodge ball, the Purple and Yellow Team lost right away, so then it was between the Blue and Red Team. It was an intense match, but in the end, Red Team won. Here’s pic of Red and Purple Team playing dodge ball…

Next, we had a break for a couple hours, so our Yellow Team had a meeting and decided we would spend that time running around the festival capturing photos for the scavenger hunt that was due in a couple hours. Here’s one photo that we had to turn in, its a pic of a Yellow Teamer disposing of cigarette butts…

Once it was time to turn in our pictures Yellow Team was leading for a little bit, but in the end Blue Team blew the scavenger hunt out of the water!

Then we had the pizza eating contest, this consisted of 3 team mates from each team and each team member would line up behind each other and once the person in front of them completely ate their piece of pizza, then they would start eating theirs. Every team was neck and neck at first, but then Yellow Team pulled ahead and won! Here’s a pic from the pizza eating contest…

The referees decided to not so any of the other events since it was too rainy and muddy. After everything was tallied, Red Team won Summer Camp’s 2013 Field Day games! Congrats Red Team! Just watch out next year, Yellow Team 2014! Then on Sunday we had a keg party for everyone who participated in any field day events and everyone had a great time getting to know each other and reminiscing on the field day events the day before. Here’s a pic of Red Team and some people from the other teams with their trophy…
