First of all welcome to the Purple Team. We are the 2012 Summer Camp Music Festival Field Day Champions. Going into 2013 I would like to continue the momentum we built up last year to again take the title.
For those of you new to the Purple Team, this is the third year of Field Day at the festival, and it’s an opportunity to just let loose and have fun within the confines of Summer Camp. There are events throughout the year; coat drives, old cell phone collections, and food drives that are ways for the Field Day participants to give back and get a leg up in the competition. There are also events happening throughout the festival itself culminating on Saturday with an all out Color War. All of the Field Day teams assemble to duke it out in tug-o-war, pizza eating, capture the flag, and so much more. On Sunday we celebrate together with a keg of 312.
The Purple Team begins online in our Facebook group where we choose how to represent ourselves. As it stands our team song for the last two years has been “Start Wearing Purple” by Gogol Bordello, our team mascot is The Cheshire Cat, and our team motto is, “Power to the Purple!” Again we can change this up or keep on going with it. Post your suggestion in the Purple Team Facebook Group and we can take a vote.
Last year we had a screen printer on site who printed up designs crowd-sourced from fans of Summer Camp. They all came out great and it was an awesome way to show off your colors at Camp.
As the online Purple Team captain I will work hard to get us all on the same page and prepare everyone for what is expected. I will work hard to take everyone’s suggestions and organizing our team’s thoughts on the subject.
To sign up for an activity just head over to the 312 Vibe Tent and find the Field Day table in the back. We will have volunteers there throughout the weekend to help you with choosing your event.
If you didn’t meet me the last two years, I was the first ever Summer Camp Counselor, and I look forward to continuing to be a part of this great festival. And let’s win again in 2013!
