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…
Here’s a pic of the two winners of arm wrestling from Yellow and Red Team…
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…
Here’s a pic of Shepy and Patrick from Red Team with their trophy…
I already can’t wait to participate and see all of the friends I made from field day again in 2014!
Yellow Team, OH YEA, Pac That!! Wo wo wo wo!
I thoroughly enjoyed having the option to participate and watch the Field Day events at Summer Camp. It was a great option to have a great time and make friends when I didn’t have any acts to catch. Summer Camp is the only festival that I’ve been to who offers these fun events. I really enjoyed being able to participate with the YELLOW TEAM not only because of the keg party at the end, but because I made many more great friends with not only my teammates, but with the other teams as well. But what really made the icing on the cake is when I heard that I won MVP of the females for Yellow Team! So awesome!
One of the events that I watched was Yellow Team’s match of tug-of-war against the Purple Team. I couldn’t participate since we had too many participants, but I made a great cheerleader, yellow pom poms and all!
Here’s a look at the Yellow Team looking all TOUGH at of tug-of-war
In the end, we lost to the Purple Team…
Next up was arm wrestling, and I participated in female arm wrestling (since I’m so buff and all)
I was the first one up against the participant of the Red Team…I’m not going to lie, I was a tad scared. Here’s some pics from my match
Here’s Red Team against Blue Team
And then Red Team’s final defeat against the Purple Team
Next up was the male wrestling match and the best moment for the Yellow Team! My main squeeze Adam volunteered to be our male participant.
The Red Team and Blue Team started it off. Here’s a look at the Red Team defeating the Blue Team.
And now the Yellow Team defeating the Red Team
And the win for the win! Yellow Team defeating the Purple Team
The Purple Team contestant didn’t believe that he lost, so he challenged our Yellow Team participant many times after it was over, but the Yellow Team won each time.
Next up was dodge ball! First our team played against the Red Team, we easily defeated them with 4 people still in the game on Yellow Team. Then we played against the ever-strong Purple Team for a chance at the win. We were doing fantastic at catching and dodging the Purple Team’s throws, but before I knew it, I the LAST one left of the Yellow Team! I’m not going to lie, I was frightened especially since I had 5 strong males starring me down like a piece of meat (just wish I had a picture of that!). I was dodging balls left and right, but eventually one of their teammates was able to catch one of my throws. Which lead to the win of dodge ball for the Purple Team.
Lastly, I watched the final field day contest, the PIZZA EATING contest. Each team needed a male and female contestant. The females had to eat 2 large slices (1/4th of a pizza) and the males had to consume 4 slice of the pizza (1/2 of a pizza).
Here’s a picture of our strong and hungry yellow team participants ready to CONQUER!
The Blue Team originally didn’t have a female participant, so I was the stand in for a while (I really just wanted some free pizza, plus who can pass up a free HOT meal at a festival?!….NO ONE!), but luckily, they found a girl standing nearby to be the female participant in for the Blue Team.
The way the pizza eating contest went was the female participants had to finish their slices first, and then the male participant on their team could start eating their slices. Once it began, the females were at neck and neck, but the Purple Team’s female participant pulled ahead easily with her strong determination. The Red Team wasn’t far behind, until we caught their participant putting hiding some of her pizza under the table, so Red Team was disqualified from the pizza eating contest. The female from the Purple Team was able to finish her pizza first, and then her male counterpart began to ravenously eat his pizza. Eventually we all were waiting around too long for the rest of the male opponents to start on their slices, so the refs just went ahead and gave the Yellow and Blue male participants the okay to start.
In the end, the Purple Team conquered. Leaving our Yellow Team with only win, which was in male arm wrestling. But at least we know we’re the “STONGEST” team there! Ha!
Then the next day was the 312 keg party! It was so much fun meeting back up with my fellow Yellow Teamers and reminiscing about all of the great memories we had of the events that we participated in. I also got to meet and have fun with the participants on the other teams. I had a blast being apart of Summer Camp’s field day events (especially since I won MVP female for yellow) and I can’t wait for next year! (When Yellow Team will conquer all!)
Love, hugs, & thugs,
