On Saturday evening some of the carpenters, led by Sarah, took a bunch of bubble wrap and constructed some sumo wrestling costumes. A sumo mat set up in the rec port and we are happy to report that no one was hurt. Above is Shannon and Nick modeling the sumo suits in the snow.
On Sunday we had a lot of fun gasping for breath in the soccer game. The under-35 team "The Snow Bunnies played against the over-35 team (Captain Jack and the old Pirates). We changed the rules a bit. Instead of two 45-min halves, we played four 7-min quarters. After about 3 minutes of running around we were all out of breath. The field of play was only 35-meters long, with no out of bounds. You scored by kicking the ball into the barrels. You could score from any angle. No goalies (i.e., no one could use their hands) and no offsides.
Ryan Vachon from Polar Palooza was trying to play and film the game at the same time. This did not work so well for the snow bunnies and he was about to score and then decided to save the camera.
The game was very close. At the end of the first half the Snow Bunnies tied the score 2-2 with 1 second left on the clock. In the 2nd half the Snow Bunnies scored the most goals, but unfortunately for them 3 of their goals were own goals. So the final score was 7-4 in favor of Jack's Pirates.
