Capture the Flag
Sunday, Oct. 12 was what we hope will become an annual event. We had close to 30 parents, children and guests participate in a game of Capture the Flag. Our President and Vice President drew names out of a hat to determine teams. After 10 minutes for each team to hide its flag and delegate duties, the game began. The teams were evenly matched so no one was able to capture the other team’s flag. However, when time expired, the Red team held a 7-5 advantage in number of prisoners and was declared the unofficial winner. We thank everybody for participating. A good time was had by all, except the few that were caught in the first 10 minutes and had to stay in jail almost the entire game! No team was able to release any of its prisoners.
Thanks to all who came over for the goat shearing. It was a beautiful day and everyone enjoyed the event.
