Today was Water Sports Saturday. In the morning, we had a long duty period to make sure that camp was looking sharp for our guests. After duties we had tub and got ready for inspection. We then had a quick lunch and reviewed the schedule for Water Sports. Water Sports went very well. The Woodpeckers won the War Canoe race final over the Hawks, and Ruben Luthra won the Junior 50-yard swim and Junior General Excellence. Mark Kirby won the Junior Obstacle race final, and Sam Randall won the Sub-Junior obstacle race final. After Water Sports, campers brought their guests on a tour of the hillside, stopping at Eastbourne for cookies and fruit punch. Tree Talks followed on Tree Talk Ridge, where we could see lightning and hear thunderstorms across the lake. Luckily, the storms never reached Pasquaney, and we were able to have the Glade Play, The Devil and Daniel Webster, in the Glade. After the Glade play, a buffet dinner was served to the guests in and around Memorial Hall. Next, campers said their initial goodbyes in the dorms while parents went over to the Watson Theater to watch the Theater Play Is He Dead? by Mark Twain. After the Theater Play, came singing for the guests. Campers sang “Ready When He Comes,” “Swing Low,” and “MTA.” After the long day, campers said goodnight to their parents and went to Baird Hall to watch a slideshow of photos from the summer. Thomas Krulak was awarded Mr. Teddy’s Cup; Robert Harvey, the Most Faithful Boy; and Simon Chuang and William Harvey were jointly awarded The Mauran Cup. The 16-year-olds received their lanterns, and the mines bugle blew. We had dorm circles, and then we went to bed as we were tired after a long day.
