cooking an egg (camp Day 2) Hobo Egg

In this photo it shows an egg. But it is no ordinary egg, it is an egg cooked on a hobo stove. The egg was created by a big can for the pan, a box of matches to light the can. In this challenge you had to have groups, so in my group was Joshua, Max, Cilas, Hossanah and me also you needed sticks and a fire starter to make the egg burn.This challenge was the second challenge in the amazing race. And our group pretty much won the egg challenge.

Camp Concert Night

It was camp concert night, the night where all camp group performances were to be held in the hall on the stage. I wasn’t really excited about the dancing this year because we had to do jump jam songs which was sort of boring. At the end of the concert we came 5th place. Our dance moves were not too great but our guts and heart to go on the stage was great. The MC of the day was Mr Bark’s.There were six teams that were performing.

The first performance was from the group Team Respect. They were talented and they were very good at their dancing. After three or two groups had come on it was our groups turn to head on up to the stage.

It was very nerve-wracking to see all my friends and the audience staring at me. We did the ‘sne sni snappy’ song and thats what got my confidence up. Once that song ended we left with the song called ‘hot hot hot’. I was trying to be funny on stage by mocking my friend Joe and his eyebrows. Some people laughed and some people didn’t. When all the groups finished it came down to the voting. Unfortunately we came 5th but at least we came somewhere.

Also that night they gave out awards and certificates. Some of my friends got awards like Matthew he got two awards and my friend Kaiden he got best roller blader. But for me I got Best camp cook and I was very happy. The awards were given in between the items of the groups, so I was very suprised about getting and award. What I liked about that night was having fun on stage and winning a award.

camp day 3

On every last day off camp’s there is a little treat installed for use, And that was going to the Panmure pools, or as known as Swimaramma. It was lots of fun because the hydroslide and boming pool was open. I was mostly on the bombing pool doing bomb’s. In this photo you can see me jumping off the board doing aye bomb.

After all the fuss with the hydro slide and bombing pool , one of New zealands popular leauge team. The WARRIORS!!! As soon as they walked in every one was shouting charnting out warriors, warriors. It was awesome to see them and some of my favourite players came and that was Shaun Johnson , Manu vatuvei and Kevin Locke. Once they came all of them went for a swim and even Manu Vatuvei did a V bomb in the water.

Once they left every one went back to doing our own thing and and i went to the normal pool to play games with my friends Joshua , Matthew R and Tana. It was lots of fun playing with them because we were playing wrestliing in the water. 10 minutes to go before we left and i did my last bomb and my last slide down the water slide.

Soft ball day!!!

Yesterday on Tuesday the 28th of Febuary our year 8 and 7 boys softball team headed down to Tamaki intermidiate to have a softball tournement. Unfourtunetly The year 8 softball team didn’t come back with the easternzone cup but the year 7’s did. Our team couch for the year 8’s was Ross. She was a good couch and made us come fourth. We challenged many teams ,Some games we lost and some games we won. The team kept smashing the ball and catching it to,to qulifiy for the semi final’s. One of the hardest teams that we faced was Ellerslie intermediate. They were very competitive to face off.So right her iam going to tell you about what happend on he Tuesday the 28th of Febuary(SOFTBALL DAY).

Once we arrived to our destination (Tamaki intermidiate) we found a spot to sit down and warm up. We warmed up for quite a long time and then finaly our couch ross came and said to us to line up and walk to the courts for a talk from the head person of the softball that day. He told us some rules for the game , but the most important rule for that day was to have fun and play fair.

The first team that we challenged was Parnell District.They were very hard with the ball but we still came out on top. The secound game we was against were St Heliars. We got even better Hitting the ball and also catching it. I have to say i was very impressed of Joe because he hit it far far away nearly to the fourth field. That game we frashed them 12-3 it was a shocking game.The next round was Ellireslie and thats when we got a competitive team. This game was very hard because there team was fast and they had a good team. In that game we lost i think it was for two but it was a hell of a ride. The last team try and stop us qulify to the semi’s was Sylvia park. But the no way they could stop us.

We made it to the semi’s to go againest Church hill Park And they were another challenging team to face off. We lost that game 9-11 but that was a very close game. After the semi’e we played for thrid and fourth challenging Ellerslie again. Losing that game was very sad to us but still we came fourth in the easternzone and also we had fun.
