Saturday the 12th of July 2008 saw a friendly get together at the Watton Sports Center for 30 or so Students from SMA’s various venues. Unfortunately the above pictured ‘Tempest’ was held up in traffic and couldn’t make it !!! Still Dave Robb, Ian Soame and Chris Hemstock were there so she wasn’t really missed !!! It was a really good turn out and a laugh a minute ! To watch fully grown men struggle with balance on what the youngsters made seem extremely easy was absolutely hilarious !!! And when Organizer Ian Soame decide to draw himself up against, lets just say, opponents that weren’t old enough to shave and still came out losing, it was quite amusing to say the least ! Better luck next year Ian.
The day saw five teams created and all gave themselves original names ! ‘Spartans’, ‘Fire’,’ Legion of Doom’, ‘Watton Worriers’ and ‘Centurions’.
After many bouts, which included different strategies such as Intrigue, Patience, kamikaze and Shear Brawn, and sometimes out and out assault, but all in good humor Threw up a shock result, somehow, surprising as it seems ‘Spartans’ didn’t win !!! But came in third.! the runners up were the ‘The Legion of Doom’ and the Winners of this exciting, fun packed afternoon were believe it or not ‘Fire’ !!! Kind of eerie when you look at the advertising picture above !!! In hindsight, if there was a team called ‘The Extinguishers’ the fire may have been put out !
Congratulations to Team Fire............
