This page should have been written in August 2013, but it wasn’t….so my memories might be a little off.
Our warm-up detox soccer match included a few injuries and pulled muscles, but the lack of stretching prompted a different approach in 2014 — and it all took place with the backdrop of a circus, which seemed fitting. I found a ton of pictures, which are here, with a few highlights below.
Rock climbing, as usual, leads to the worst pictures. But Danno, back in competition after a year off, pulled out first place. JP took second – I wish I could remember how. And Mike Graf took third. In all the years of climbing, that seems like the the right order.
and then, while getting the keg, this happened, which sucked.
But we still played golf at Amesbury. Tom Gustafson won (by a lot) and Eric Lapham came in second (“first loser,” in Lapham-speak). In third, we had a three-way tie (ok, that’s no surprise): Doyle, Madden, and Cavanaugh.
For mountain biking, we returned Stratham — and got completely pummeled by Danno on the free-ride before the short, brutal time trial. And we had a small matter of a broken bike. Never happened before and won’t happen again.
Lunch at Red Hook….ahhhh…..Red Hook
Basketball — we had six teams, which turned out to be way too many. But the final game came down to JP, Mike, and Chris Doyle v Gus, Eric Lapham, and Jason Madden, truly a surprise team.
So, your overall winner — first ever repeat winner: JP
second overall — Mr. Mike Graf
third overall — Chris ‘Fes’ Doyle
yes, that’s Team Hickory taking 1-2-3 on the podium
