BONFIRE BLAST - Wonderful Night with Wonderful Friends!
May 7, 2009
Last night we decided to burn our huge bonfire at the corner of the Reg Hawdon Sports Field here on the All Tribes property. It has become quite a huge pile this week as The Wise Owl group has added the boards and wood from Millie's collapsed woodshed, tree branches and some posts from the old pond walk. We started the party around 7pm with a game of Ultimate Frisbee. As the evening wore on more and more friends arrived and we ended up with around 30 young people. After the game of Ultimate we had a game of soccer and then another game of Ultimate...then it was time to LIGHT IT UP! Mike and J got the gas and we got a rip roarin' fire going! We enjoyed singing O' Canada to our American friends and then had them sing The Star Spangled Banner to us! Millie led us in some old camp favourites as well- "The Pigity Rigity Old Sliggity Slave" and "They Say at All Tribes Camp"! We learned some new camp fire games and some of the brave ones tried Trey's Star Gazing Game, which sounds pretty calm but those who participated have another story. After some more visiting around the bonfire we decided to move the party up to the Lodge, where the fun and games continued!!! We played some ping pong, WINK and 4 on a Couch. Luke also taught us a new game which I'm sure we'll play more of this summer. Just before midnight we busted out the Heavenly Hash and Cookies n' Cream and ate ice-cream and chatted until the wee hours of the morning. It was sooo great to catch up with our local friends and get to know the Indiana Crew more too. Thanks so much to all who came and made our first Bonfire Blast of the summer one to remember- Ruthie, Brianna, Micaela, Joe, Mars, Leah, Hillary, Micaela, Jessica C, Seth, Mike, Jessica F, Kyle, Josh, Dalton, Kevin, Justin, Trey, Aaron, Jon, Kevin, Matt J, Tie Dye Matt, Luke, and Holly.
