Youth Camp Analyst

I said the Pink Team would win. - The Pink Team won. - I am naming myself the unofficial YC analyst. ; )

After Church I went to the Efthimues with Mattea and stayed there for the afternoon. After lunch Daniel spotted a wood chuck and we went out after it. I fired two shots but missed. Then we played paintball - and I had much more success than with the woodchuck. We dragged a bunch of barrels out into a remote field (I'm still sore) hid behind them and commenced to shoot at eachother. We played one round without much action. Then we played single shot, and things really started to happen; Daniel yelled go, we popped up from our barrels. I fired one shot; I saw Daniel lean over his barrel, then slide down the back of it, then lay there in the grass moaning, I had hit him in the ribs. We exchanged fire for a few minutes, in which time, although I didn't mention it, Daniel came within a couple inches of hitting my head... the sound of a paintball wizzing past your ear is not really a comforting one, then, I saw him kneel down to reload. I shot, he fell behind the barrel and started moaning again, it it had hit him on top of he head. A few minutes later, after exchanging a few dozen more rounds of fire Daniel stood up to shoot Abrahm returned fire; Daniel truned and ran, he fell, he shot himself in the leg. He decided to take a break. Interestingly, none of the paintballs broke, so according to the rules he wasn't out. Now it was down to Abrham and I; Abrahm got me. We were in a stand off for about ten minutes, then I leaned over the barrel and smack, be hit me in the hand. Arguably the most painfull place to get hit. After that, not much happend, exept for Abrham shooting me twice in the backside at point blank range, on two different occasions, when he was supposed to be on time out. We were all quite sore when we returned to the house.

We were there for the campfire party/testimonial time and it was very moving. But you all know that. ; )

Yes they are great. We should have you and Jarred over for a day sometime and make a really, really big one.

PS. I like lilies, and I'm sure your team was really cool, your hair is very cute(although I recently admitted to not being an authority on it, I really do think so) but, that being said... could you post with your regular name once, because you haven't for several posts, and my fingers feeling lazy to scroll all the way down to get to your link. : )
