Results of the Dodgeball Tournament:

This was one of those days where everyone was a winner.  The Dominators consisted of Team Captain, Mason Ritnour, Alex Osmond, Daniel and Nick Goudie.  This team was considered the youngsters. Garrett's Team consisted of Team Captain and Head Cheerleader, Garrett Brummer.  Jordan Vogt and Garyn Folden were his team and were referred to as "the old guys" by the "youngsters."

Since the turn out was small it gave the boys a chance to mix it up a bit.  They practiced for at least an hour and changed team members to make it fair.  Finally they got down to business and the younger boys held there own right up to the end.  It was a close tournament but Garrett's team pulled it out to earn the title of Dodgeball Champions...third time in a row!  Is there a team out there that can beat them?  Doesn't look like it!  The boys all walked a way with the comemmorative Flying Wheels Dodgeball shirt and a smile on their faces.


Believe it or not the Dominators knocked Garrett's shoe off!


Dan and Alex say they are #1!


The teams share a moment after the tournament.

Saturday Was Game Night!

Sorry!,  Bingo!  Stackers! and Connect 4 were big hits Saturday night.  Not to mention shooting pool.  There was

some skating but that took second place this time.  Then the kids tried to teach themselves the new Miley Cyrus dance,

Hoedown Throwdown.
