Okay, so we chose teams yesterday and here is my team:
Harry The Hawk - Atlanta Hawks
Stanley C. Panther - Florida Panthers
Aubie - Auburn Tigers
Dodger The Cat - Fort Worth Dodgers (AA)
Goldy - Minnesota Gophers
Thunderbug - Tampa Bay Lightning
I chose my looking for dexterity, speed, and great team spirit! Stanley C. Panther has been on my winning teams the last 2 years so I was happy to get him again.
(Sorry for the photo quality, I took my camera too deep last time I went for a swim!)
Anyhow, Day 1 was at Volusia County Fairgrounds - a small, suburb outside Orlando. We performed in front of 2,000 day campers! We participated in 4 events - Obstacle Relay, Dodgeball, Joust, and Musical Chairs. Blue won the Obstacle Relay with the top time of 1 min 5 seconds. We didn't do so well in Dodgeball but things turned around with Harry winning the Dance Off @ Halftime. We then had Joust where we won 3 out of the 7 battles and me winning my own beating Lil' Red (Nebraska), Sebastian (Miami Hurricanes) and Stuff (Orlando Magic). Dodger ended up winning the Musical Chair event. In the end Blue Team collected the most points and their section in the stands won lots of giveaways thrown out by the mascots! It was a fun day!
Check back tomorrow to see what I am up too!
